During her recent pregnancy, while posing for a photo shoot in a bikini, professional famous person Kim Kardashian told an interviewer that since hooking up with rapper and father of her child Kanye West, she has learned to value her privacy.
Apparently there are limits on how much she values it, judging by her latest online posting, an Instagram “selfie” of herself in a tight, one-piece swimsuit that barely covers her famously sizable rear end.
See the full Instagram photo below.
Shortly after she posted the photo, West (pictured, with Kardashian) — who reportedly spent 85 days apart from Kardashian out of the first 111 after announcing her pregnancy — responded with a Tweet of his own.
“HEADING HOME NOW,” the multimillionaire rapper tweeted, in all caps.
While some people might say that the couple were engaging in a case of TMI, those did not include the nearly 70,000 Twitter users who had retweeted the exchange as of this morning.
Kardashian, 32, first gained fame as a friend of frequently photographed socialite Paris Hilton in the early 2000’s. In 2007, like Paris before her, she made an explicit video of herself having sex with a boyfriend, caused her recognition to multiply exponentially.
She has since become an industry unto herself, mainly through her reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which forms the basis of the Kardashian media and marketing empire.
She is the daughter of Robert Kardashian, who came to national attention in 1994 as the close friend, lawyer and defender of accused murderer and former football star O.J. Simpson. The senior Kardashian served on Simpson’s defense team during his 1995 trial, which ended in acquittal.
The Kardashian patriarch died of cancer in 2003. Kim’s mother then married former Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner. But the couple recently split and Kim has reportedly been distraught about the breakup.
She reportedly fears for her own relationship with the frequently-absent West, to whom she is not married, which may have motivated last night’s Instagram posting.
