Retail

In July 2008, Kardashian announced on her blog that she is working on her own perfume line to be released in 2009.[10] In March 2009 Kardashian launched a shoe shopping service.[11] Kardashian co-owns a clothing boutique called D-A-S-H with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe.

Personal life

In 2000, Kardashian married music producer Damon Thomas; their relationship ended in divorce in 2004. In 2007, she began dating NFL star Reggie Bush after they met at the ESPY Awards. The couple split at the end of July 2009.[12][13] On September 29, 2009, E! stated that Kardashian had visited Bush. "[Khloe's] wedding made her miss him, so she flew to see him".[14] According to their reality show, they began dating once again in October 2009.

Dr. Sanford Siegal, the creator of the Cookie Diet, sued Kardashian, claiming she defamed him on Twitter. According to Siegal, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star tweeted in October that he was "falsely promoting" that she was on the cookie diet. "Not true! I would never do this unhealthy diet! I do QuickTrim!" Kardashian allegedly said via Twitter. "If this Dr. Siegal is lying about me being on this diet, what else are they lying about? Not cool!" Siegal filed a claim in a Florida state court claiming the statements are false and defamatory. He also alleges that Kardashian was on QuickTrim's payroll when she posted the tweet. Kardashian's tweet appears to stem from an article on CookieDiet.com, a site with no connection to Siegal, that named Kardashian as one of many celebrities who saw positive results on the diet. Kardashian sent a cease-and-desist order to Siegal, demanding the link be removed.[15]

Sex tape

In 2007, a pornographic home video she made with her then-boyfriend, R&B singer Ray J, was leaked.[16] Kardashian sued Vivid Entertainment for ownership of the tape. Kardashian later dropped the suit and settled with Vivid Entertainment for $5 million.[17]
