In an unexpected turn of events, Ivanka Trump, daughter of former President Donald Trump, has reportedly formed a significant bond with reality TV star Kim Kardashian. Despite Donald Trump's public criticism of Kardashian, calling her "the world's most overrated celebrity," Ivanka is said to value Kardashian's personal and legal advice highly.
Sources close to Ivanka reveal that she places great trust in Kardashian, particularly for her understanding of legal matters. "Ivanka doesn't have an extensive circle of friends, especially close girlfriends with a deep understanding of the law like Kim does. This is why she places a high value on Kim's advice, both on a personal and legal level," an insider told OK!. This bond comes at a crucial time for Ivanka, who recently testified in her father's civil fraud trial in New York.
Kardashian's legal advocacy work in recent years has made her a trusted confidante for Ivanka, especially in navigating complex legal issues. The two were seen together at Kim's birthday party in October, where Ivanka expressed gratitude for her friends, highlighting their growing camaraderie.
The relationship between Ivanka and Kardashian has been brewing for nearly a decade, with sources noting their initial bond over motherhood and new mother experiences at the Met Gala. Over the years, their mutual passion for criminal justice reform has further solidified their friendship.
While Ivanka finds support in Kardashian, her father Donald Trump's disdain for the Hulu star remains. In a recent book by ABC News' Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl, Trump criticized Kardashian for allegedly offering to leverage her celebrity status for his administration, a claim he dismissed as "Fake News."
In a parallel development, Kim Kardashian is making headlines in Hollywood with her acting ambitions. Following her performance in Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story series, Kardashian is gearing up to star in and produce a comedy film titled 'The 5th Wheel.' Her hands-on approach to pitching the movie to studios marks a significant shift from her reality TV roots to serious acting roles.
Kardashian's acting debut in 'AHS Delicate' garnered positive reactions, with many praising her performance and ability to adapt to different roles. Beyond acting, Kardashian's business ventures, including her SKIMS shapewear brand, have contributed to her estimated personal fortune of around $1.7 billion.
As Ivanka navigates the legal complexities surrounding her family, her alliance with Kardashian offers a blend of personal support and legal insight. Meanwhile, Kardashian's foray into acting and continued business success showcases her versatility and ambition, transcending her reality TV persona. This unlikely duo's evolving dynamics reflect the complexities and crossover of politics, law, and entertainment in today's celebrity landscape.
