It might seem unlikely that there can be anything left to unearth about Kim Kardashian West. After all, she’s had a hit reality show that has documented her entire life since 2007 and several controversial moments that have grabbed headlines ever since.

Even though you can keep up with her on every possible media channel from TV to social media to apps, there are still some things that you may not know about the famous mother of two. So, gather ‘round, Kimmy K lovers (and haters) – here are 21 Kim Kardashian facts that are literally so true, Bible.

We all know that Kim isn’t afraid to go under the knife. She also has nerves of steel when it comes to piercings! Did you know that she has piercings on her bellybutton, one in her right ear and four on her left? She hasn’t been spotted with her belly ring lately, though.
2. She has a Freckle on her Eyeball
There are many Kim Kardashian doppelgangers out there. All the ladies try to copy her style, fashion, makeup and hairdos. One thing they can’t mimic however, is the freckle on her right eyeball! Bet you’ve never noticed that before!
3. Kim Hates the Food You Love
Plan on cooking a meal for Kimmy? Make sure your menu is rid of cilantro, mustard, peppers, blue cheese and red velvet. She absolutely despises them! Seriously, who hates red velvet?!

8. She Goes to the Beach at Certain Times
As her true fan knows, Kim loves going on vacation where she can flaunt in her bikini and relax on the beach. However, what you may not know is that the bootylicious star only goes to the beach when lighting is the most flattering to avoid casting unappealing light on her cellulite. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
9. Kim has Been Married 3 Times
If you thought Kim K’s infamously short marriage to Kris Humphries and her famous marriage to Kanye West is all there was in the ring department, you’re mistaken. She’s actually been married three times! Her first marriage was to a music producer, Damon Thomas, when she was 19. They divorced three years later, because of emotional and physical abuse.
10. The “Worst Thing on the Planet” According to Kim is…
Not shocking coming from the Contour Queen, Kim believes that the “worst thing on the planet” is when women’s foundation is too light. Good job we’ve found dupes of her KKW highlight and contour kits! If more girls wear the right shade on their skin, that’s one less problem off Kim’s shoulder!
11. Kim is Elizabeth Taylor’s Biggest Fan

12. She has Expensive Taste
Most of us dream of our wedding day, but most of us don’t expect it to be a $30 million affair. And while plebeians like you and I may be used to traditional name cards to help seat our guests, Kim and Kanye had the name of all 150 attendees engraved into the marble tables.
13. Kim Once Released a Single
We all have regrets, but Kim’s comes in the form of her cringe-worthy single, Jam (Turn It Up). As bad as the song was, thankfully, the 2011 track wasn’t all a waste. She donated half of song’s profits to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
14. She has a Pricey Beauty Regime
Think twice before you decide to copy the star’s makeup routine! You might want to save up before you do! Apparently, Kim’s makeup routine costs a whooping $770 worth of products! No wonder she always looks flawless!
Check out these photos of Kim Kardashian without makeup – she looks even better when she’s not covered in hundreds of dollars worth of cosmetics!
15. Kim Sent Fake Photos of North When she was Born
After North West’s birth, Kim and Kanye sent photos of a different baby to their friends to test and see who would try and sell them to the media. Sure enough, some of them did. What a legit way to learn who your real friends are.

Several members from the Kardashian family have been rumored to go under the knife but it seems Kim K has been under public scrutiny for more years than others. Through it all, she has been accused of having plastic surgery on every part of her body, mostly her butt, boobs, eyes, cheeks, and lips. Facing her accusers, she has said that apart from Botox in the past, she hasn’t had any procedures. She even posted a picture of herself as a teenager in a bikini to prove the body she has hasn’t been altered.
19. She was Banned from the Met Gala
Despite being a famous celebrity worldwide, Anna Wintour, the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue, banned Kim from the Met Gala in 2012 simply because she “didn’t like” the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star. Guess no amount of fame or money can stop the wrath of Wintour. Nevertheless, Anna let Kim and her husband, Kanye grace the cover of Vogue in 2014. They even posed together for this awesome photo. All’s fair in love and war…
20. She was Robbed in 2016
During her visit to Paris for Fashion Week back in October 2016, Kim was robbed of $10 million worth of jewellery.
