Kim Kardashian’s first foray into tabloid media was as a friend to Paris Hilton. They occasionally frequented the LA club scene together. But what started as an innocent curiosity by photographers became tabloid overnight fame in 2002. A sex tape featuring “Kim K” with her then-boyfriend, singer Ray J went public. Since the tape, Kim has become a social media dynamo and reality television star with lucrative endorsement deals.

Her dating and private life still fascinate the public, twelve years later. The latest batch of photos featuring Kim posing in a one-piece swimsuit and not wearing a wedding ring. Kardashian married rapper Kanye West in 2014, leading to speculation that the pics were taken before the couple’s nuptials. But beyond that, nothing much else is known about the pics. US Weekly is also reporting that nude pictures of Vanessa Hudgens, U.S. soccer player Hope SoloLake BellAvril Lavigne and, Leelee Sobieski, were posted online. That’s quite a ‘fappening.’ The FBI is investigating the hacks of these celebrities’ cloud servers.
