Khloe Alexandra Kardashian is a model, television personality, and entrepreneur from the United States. Her claim to fame was her appearance alongside her mother and siblings on her family’s real-life drama reality show ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians.’ The sitcom was such a hit that it spawned a slew of spin-offs, making Khloe and her sisters household names in the United States. She also featured on a reality show with her then-husband, NBA basketball player Lamar Odom, whom she divorced later. When she was young, her parents split, and her father died when she was 18. This drew her closer to her mother, who had remarried and had a large number of children and stepchildren from both marriages. This became the central focus of their reality program, which depicted their individual personalities, love lives, fights, and professional careers. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have released a unisex fragrance. She also opened a business with jewelry and a clothing brand with her siblings. Khloe has also hosted a number of talk shows and is a spokesperson for a company that sells eco-friendly goods. She also has a cosmetics company and co-wrote two books with her sisters.
