Kim Kardashian West Reveals She Lied About Her Age So She Could Appear in This Late Rapper’s Music Video
Kim Kardashian West has been an open book ever since she landed on the world’s radar in 2007 through her family’s reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. But there are apparently a few things that she’s kept from us.
She recently sat down for an interview on Jonathan Cheban’s new podcast and gave a pretty interesting answer when asked if there’s something fans don’t know about her.
Kardashian West’s revelation is random

“When I was, like, 14, I was in a Tupac video,” Kardashian West revealed.
“Is it Google-able?” Cheban asked.
“No, no one would ever know,” she continued. “First of all, we lied and said we were 18 probably, I definitely looked 18. I didn’t even drive. Kim Stuart was in something, I think it was for a soundtrack. I’d have to call Kourtney and find out.”
When asked if she ever met the rapper, who died after being shot in 1996, Kardashian West said he “wasn’t there.”
“I’ve never seen the footage,” she added. “We were walking down the runway. We were models walking down a runway; it wasn’t like we were in bikinis by the pool or anything like that. We were literally walking down a runway, and it was Kim Stuart, me, Kourtney, and maybe one or two other friends. I don’t know how it happened.”
The Internet’s reaction to Kardashian West’s music video confession
After catching wind of her comments, many social media users revisited Tupac’s old videos to figure out which one features the reality star.
Some later claimed that they’d found her in his video for “All About U,” in which a woman with tanned skin and dark, Kim K-esque hair struts down a runway. (You can see a glimpse of the woman around the 3:00 mark.)
But Kardashian West said in a Sept. 22 tweet that the claims were untrue.
“This isn’t me,” she wrote.
As of writing, it is still unclear which video she appeared in.
Kardashian West went to great lengths to become famous
She recently admitted in the September issue of Vogue Arabia that she used to be “embarrassingly obsessed” with fame.
“When I was living on Robertson [Boulevard], it was like paparazzi central,” she added in 2016 in regards to the days when she was BFFs with Paris Hilton (via Us Weekly). “I was living right behind Kitson, and every time I’d go to the gym or go eat, every paparazzi would ask me questions, and I would be like, ‘Hey, guys!’ Like, I so wanted the attention.”
She later parlayed the fame she received from her sex tape with Ray J into a world-famous reality show. But now that she’s older, Kardashian West has rebuffed the spotlight. She instead wants to focus on her law career, and she might be moving to Wyoming to do it.
