But before her fame skyrocketed, Kim, 41, lived in a small LA apartment that has since been resold.
The new owner used TikTok to share clips of the empty space as he announced his discovery of the previous tenant.
In the video, user @iamjessk walked through the average sized closet before entering the gray carpeted bedroom.
Then they walked down a wood-floored hallway that led to Kim’s old kitchen, a narrow, marble-topped room.
The TikTok creator then panned into the modest living room with a fireplace and large glass doors leading outside.
Reshared to the @kardashiansocial fan page, other followers were shocked at how much Kim upgraded their space.
“Oh my god so many iconic moments happened in this apartment I’m jealous,” gushed one.
“This is so cool,” agreed a second, while a third joked, “Oh look! The kitchen she never used.”
“Needs a new kitchen now…this is outdated,” trolled a final one.
Kim lived in the condo while filming the first season of 2005’s KUWTK until it was sold in 2010 for $885,000.
The reality star moved into her $60 million Hidden Hills mansion in 2014 after her now-ex Kanye West bought the property.
The massive house has been relentlessly trolled by fans as it has a monochromatic beige theme throughout.
Earlier this summer, Kim showed off much of her lavish residence when she hosted a Minions party that was described as “lavish.”
The 41-year-old has posted various clips from her eye-popping movie party, including piñatas, roller blades and plenty of balloons.
However, fans also got another look at the inside of the star’s mansion, which features an abundance of beige.
Followers quickly took to an online thread to share a theory on why Kim decided to keep everything one hue: so the mother-of-four can host events there without the schemes clashing.
Others were quick to respond, with one writing, “An event space that can be rented out for ads…makes sense why it’s so plain now.”
Another chimed in: “Your house is trippy… like this is really a home or a museum…?”
“The amount of waste they produce is insane, hundreds of gallons for just one event,” added a follower.
While fans aren’t just concerned about Kim’s mansion, the reality star herself has also been critical of her own living space.
In 2021, Kim made a harsh comment about her expensive pad during an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The SKIMS founder brought her mother Kris Jenner over when her mother was looking for a new house.
She told the family matriarch: “You’re going to love this area. I’m making an LED screen the size of the blue outline.
“The whole wall will be a TV. And then a big run and a huge circular couch that’s like a U and super deep.”
The SKIMS founder then showed off her living room, which was completely covered in plastic sheeting, when a large hole sat in the middle of her wall.
“I’ve never seen you not work on this house since you bought it,” Kris said.
“I know. It’s the money pit,” Kim replied with an annoyed tone and an eye roll.
Years before they would divorce, Kim and Kanye West bought the home in 2013 for $20 million.
They spent the next five years undertaking extravagant renovations costing millions before finally moving in.
In 2020, the ex-couple sat down to share the inspirations behind their minimalist designs, which fans derided as “morgue-esque,” in an issue of Architectural Digest.
The rapper said the house’s “futuristic Belgian cloister style” was “inspired” by his firstborn daughter, North.
Almost every inch of the home was designed by the controversial hitmaker alongside interior designers Axel Vervoordt and Claudio Silvestrin.
Explaining how the Grammy winner even designed details like the bathroom sink, Kim explained: “So the sink, Kanye drew that. Kanye, Axel Vervoordt and Claudio Silvestrin…”
