Paris Hilton Reminds Kanye Who Made Kim Kardashian Famous

Since the first episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired, “Kim Kardashian” has been a household name. In the early 2000s, however, Kardashian was simply known as Paris Hilton’s assistant and party buddy.

In fact, the first time Kanye West even saw his now-wife was when she was still Hilton’s doting assistant. “I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton, and I remember telling my boy, ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-djion?'” West recalled in a 2013 interview with Ryan Seacrest.

While Kardashian may have put her friendship with Hilton behind her, it seems like our favorite blonde heiress doesn’t want anyone to forget how Kardashian got her start. 

Hilton recently liked a meme on Instagram that showed her head photoshopped into Kanye West’s video for “Famous.” Savage AF.

Our 2004 selves are LIVING right now.
