Kim Kardashian and Ivanka Trump’s Friendship Timeline

While Kim Kardashian and Ivanka Trump make their homes on opposite coasts, the socialites have maintained a close bond for nearly a decade.

After initially bonding over motherhood and their mutual passion for criminal justice reform, Kardashian and Trump have teamed up on more than one occasion to serve as advocates for incarcerated individuals. Their friendship extends beyond the White House, though, as the pair continue to support one another at social events as well.

“Kim and Ivanka have been friends for years and have hung out on a number of occasions,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly in October 2023. “[Criminal justice reform] is something they’ve both dedicated a lot of their time towards and has helped strengthen their friendship even further.”

Kardashian’s ex-husband Kanye West has a tumultuous past with Ivanka’s father, former President Donald Trump. West has expressed his support for Donald on numerous occasions, but their relationship became fraught after West was dropped from several brand partnerships for his antisemitic comments.

Kim and Ivanka connected at the Met Gala while embracing the theme “Charles James: Beyond Fashion.” The pair “initially bonded” at the event “over motherhood and being new moms,” an inside source told Us in October 2023. “But they continued to connect numerous times over the years.” (Kim shares North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm with West, while Ivanka shares Arabella, Joseph and Theodore with husband Jared Kushner.)

Kim visited the White House again to discuss second-chance hiring and prisoner reentry. Posing next to Ivanka at the event, Kim announced her rideshare partnership with Lyft to help formerly incarcerated people get to and from job interviews, jobs and visits to family members.
