9 Celebs Whose Relationships Made Them Famous

We have to admit, we’re actually ridiculously surprised at the number of celebs whose relationships made them famous. As we started building this list, we realized that the majority of them are related to the Keeping Up With the Kardashians clan – surprise, surprise. Anything touched by that family is almost instantly famous, let’s be real. Let’s get those gems out of the way, and then we’ll dive into some least suspecting victims, shall we?

Kim Kardashian

At the head of it all, responsible for all of the fame and attention brought to her family, we have Kim Kardashian herself.

We all know that Kim became famous from a leaked sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J. Congrats, Kimmie! This relationship has made you famous and is responsible for the fame, career, and overall success of the rest of your family. We hope they remember to go above and beyond every Christmas for you!

In addition to KUWTK, Kim’s success proximity has also led to a clothing line, beauty line, successful clothing boutique with her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, called Dash, a super popular app that has allegedly made her more money than Kanye’s entire net worth, and brought some positive attention back to big booties. We don’t hate it.
