Bible: Allison Statter is Kim Kardashian's best friend.

"I know I always say 'my BFF,' and I definitely have lots of them, but Allison and I go way, way back," Kardashian revealed in a 2016 "Inner Circle" video that also appeared on her website and app.

Statter is definitely a recognizable face – the blonde has been by Kardashian's side since elementary school (her mom and Kris Jenner are also besties), and she's popped up at everything from the reality star's baby shower to her 2013 engagement.

"I don't know life without Kim," Statter said to Kardashian in the "Inner Circle" clip, adding, "You've just been such an amazing sister to me. It's also just really comforting and really nice to be on the same path in life too. We had our kids at the same time, we're like married with kids at the same time. … It's rare and it's unique and I just feel so blessed that we have each other."

While Statter is a little "social media shy" (Kardashian's words), here's everything to know about the import K Krew member.

She used to rule the roost

These days, Kardashian is an undisputed mogul, running her own empire with ease. Back in the day, however, Statter was the top dog.

"In elementary school, you were so bossy," Kardashian said of Statter in the "Inner Circle" video. "You were in a different school district, and I introduced you to, like, Ashley and all those girls. And you just, like, came in and took over, and you were so bossy."

Statter also had better lunches than Kardashian: "I always loved my best friend Allison's lunch because she always got lots of Cheetos and Oreos."

Speaking to Matt Lauer in 2015, she said, "I was always stuck with really healthy food. I always begged her for some of her lunch."

Her father is a major player in the music world

Kardashian isn't Statter's first connection to the celebrity world. Statter's father is music industry executive Irving Azoff, who has managed everyone from Christina Aguilera and Journey to the Eagles. Azoff was once the CEO of Ticketmaster and served as chairman for Live Nation.

She's Kardashian's go-to confidante

"Allison is like the first person that I would call if there was like a huge family drama," Kardashian shared in her sit-down with Statter. "Like, before anyone."

Added Statter, "And I would do the same. We're basically as close as you get to sisters without having blood."

She doesn't see Kardashian as her "famous friend"

"To me, Kim is just Kim," Statter said. "So I don't look at her, and I'm like, 'Oh my God, my famous friend Kim.' Like, I can honestly say that you have not changed."

Statter explained that she didn't have a "Holy s—, she's really famous" moment until Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to son Mason and new moms were leaving their rooms at the hospital to see Kim.

She's good at keeping secrets

While Statter has teased that she knows "a lot" of secrets about Kardashian, she insisted she would never "tell any of them."

"People ask me all the time," she said. "They'll ask me specific things about [Kim]."

She's modeled for Kardashian's SKIMS shapewear brand

For her SKIMS Solutionwear multi-platform campaign in September 2019, Kardashian cast women who inspire her – including Statter. In a video on the brand's Instagram page of Statter modeling the SKIMS sculpting bodysuit, she said of Kardashian, "I've grown up with Kim my whole life. Kim is basically family to me. Our parents were best friends. We are as close to sisters as can be without actually having blood in our veins."

Statter added that she has seen firsthand how invested Kardashian is in shapewear.

"It is very authentic that she has created this shapewear line," she said. "When Kim first started doing shoots, I would be on set with her sometimes just hanging out, and she would have every type of shapewear on the market with her. Every color, every different style, and she would sometimes double up. She would sometimes cut them and then have the seamstress sew them back together."

She continued, "It's just really awesome that she's taking everything that she's learned through those experiences and creating something for everyone."
