Malika & Khadijah Haqq
Loyal Keeping Up with the Kardashians viewers will certainly recognize Malika, as well as her twin sister Khadijah. The pair have regularly starred on KUWTK and the show’s spin-off Dash Dolls. “I couldn’t love them anymore than I do!!” Khloé Kardashian once wrote on Instagram, captioning a pic with the sisters who she’s known since childhood.
Most recently, Malika seemingly slammed Jordyn Woods publicly on social media after the model — once an integral part of the Kardashian-Jenner inner circle — allegedly hooked up with Khloé’s boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.
Pippen was another who stood up for Khloé in the wake of the Jordyn-Tristan scandal — and her roots with the family run deep. The estranged wife of basketball star Scottie Pippen (and a mother of four), Larsa appeared on The Real Housewives of Miami and is tight with both Kim and Kourtney, presumably thanks to her stint on their show Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.
Out of all of Kim’s famous friends, the most well-known to Kardashian fans is Cheban, whom the reality star refers to as her bestie. “If someone talk s–t about Kim then I’ll borrow a shoe from [a] drag queen and hit them with the heel!” the former PR maven turned food critic once said.
Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
Although the married couple regularly go on double dates with Kim and husband Kanye to award shows, and have late-night fast food runs, Teigen and Legend are also close to Kris Jenner, the family’s matriarch. Most recently, the couple popped into the annual KarJenner Christmas party, where John performed.
When she’s not focusing on her modeling career or hanging out with husband Justin Bieber, Baldwin can be seen hanging out with both Kendall and Kylie on (and off) Instagram.
In addition to being friendly with Hailey Baldwin and the Hadids, according to Elle Australia, the influencer has grown close with the Kardashian-Jenner clan, hanging publicly now and then with Kourtney and going as the Austin Powers to Kendall’s Fembot last Halloween.
Since Kris Jenner began dating Gamble in 2014, the matriarch’s main man has grown close to the momager’s brood, specifically Kourtney. “Kourtney and Corey are conjoined twins,” Khloé said in an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Aside from being married to Kim Kardashian, with whom he shares kids North, Saint, Chicago and a baby on the way, the award-winning rapper is also known for decking out the already stylish family with clothes from his Yeezy clothing line. “He’s a great guy, he really is,” Kris Jenner said of her son-in-law.
Though they’ve had their ups and downs, Kylie Jenner and the father to their daughter Stormi, rapper Scott, seem stronger than ever. Most recently, the two threw their 1-year-old an extravagant birthday bash, and they packed on the PDA on the Grammys red carpet, marking one of the few times they’ve stepped out publicly in their years together.
Although the self-proclaimed Lord Disick is no longer in a relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, the pair have three children together: Mason, Penelope and Reign. The KarJenner clan regularly hang out with Disick and posts selfies with Kourtney’s former longtime love, who’s dating Sofia Richie.
If you had to pick one word to describe hairstylist Chris Appleton (at right), it’s dedicated. He’s transformed Kim’s locks into the most memorable cuts and colors, which can often be a very time-consuming process. “Spent the last few days bleaching my roots (we do it in stages so it doesn’t break off),” Kardashian wrote in tweet when she was platinum blonde. “OMG 13 hours & still going. This blonde is very high maintenance. Love you @ChrisAppleton1 but getting over this.”
After the Kardashians discovered Hrush Achemyan on Instagram, she’s been by their side for every red carpet, family vacation and Instagram photo shoot.
“They are ultimate perfection in every single angle and every single light, and they are probably the kindest clients I’ve ever worked with,” she previously told PEOPLE.
Likely one of the most recognizable faces in the Kardashian’s glam squad, Mario Dedivanovic has created nearly every iconic makeup look worn by Kim. In honor of the pair’s 10-year friendship, the KKW Beauty mogul and Mario created a limited edition collection of lipsticks, lip glosses and an eye shadow palette for her brand last year.
Aside from being good friends with Kylie, Hudson is best known for being courageously open about his battle with late-stage Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of cancer, with fans on social media. The singer, who is now cancer-free, released The Treatment (A-Side), which recounts his battle with the diagnosis.
“I know I always say ‘my BFF,’ and I definitely have lots of them but Allison and I go way, way back,” Kim revealed in an “Inner Circle” video on her website and app. “Allison is like the first person that I would call if there was like a huge family drama,” the star shared in the women’s sit-down. “Like, before anyone.”
Gigi & Bella Hadid
Gigi isn’t just Kendall’s BFF — she’s her favorite coworker. The two regularly walk in the same runway shows, appear in the same Vogue editorials and hang off-duty, too (fro-yo run, anyone?).
However in an interview with photographer Mario Testino, Kendall revealed it was actually Bella with whom she was friends first, hanging out “every day” in high school.
Anastasia, a.k.a. Stassie, has been friends with Kylie for years. The duo has been posting selfies and hanging out poolside (probably) for as long as they’ve had Instagram accounts. “If we don’t post a photo together for a week, everyone thinks there’s some sort of drama,” Karanikolaou told Paper of her relationship with Kylie. “But in reality, she’s like my sister, and I don’t think that will ever change.”
“She’s always willing to help,” Anthony told Meredith Vieira when asked for details on her friendship with Kim. “If I’m working on a project, she goes ‘Who’s doing that? You want me to call them and tell them they should hire you?’ She’s very kind in that way. She’s a very good, good friend.”
Smith may have started out as Kylie and Kendall’s really close friend, but the son of Will Smith quickly became a friend of the entire family, having been invited to Kim and Kanye’s wedding, which he attended wearing a Batman suit.
However, he’s also close with Jordyn Woods, a longtime Smith family friend who allegedly hooked up with Khloé’s boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. Whether or not this affects his standing with the family remains to be seen …
