Khloé Kardashian: Snapshot

Name
Khloé Kardashian
Date of Birth
June 27, 1984
Birth Place
Los Angeles, Calif.
With her acerbic wit and loudmouthed honesty, Khloé Kardashian has become an instant fan favorite on her family's reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Though her older sister Kim was the first to hit it big, the Beverly Hills-bred Khloé (whose father, the late Robert Kardashian, was O.J. Simpson's defense attorney) eventually spun off from the boisterous Kardashian clan with an appearance on the highly rated Celebrity Apprentice and Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami.

In 2009, Khloé's off-screen whirlwind courtship with NBA star Lamar Odom took her center stage. After dating for a month, Kardashian and Odom tied the knot in a Beverly Hills wedding that was captured by cameras. The cameras kept rolling after the ceremony as the newlyweds settled into domestic bliss for their very own show, Khloé and Lamar. But four years later, the fairytale came to an end when Kardashian filed for divorce following long standing issues with Odom, including substance abuse and allegations of infidelity.
