To be a Kardashian in 2015 is to be on a level of celebrity that is frankly unfathomable. The Kardashian (and Jenner) clan’s every move is highly documented whether it’s for their myriad of E! reality shows, tabloids or social media accounts. While it could be easy to count them out as mere tabloid fodder, you can’t. The Kardashians have worked hard for the fame they’ve achieved. 

Khloé, the outspoken youngest sister, has worked just as hard as the rest, with her hand in the vast Kardashian empire. But Khloé’s also ventured out on her own using her honest yet warm personality to host a radio show and later The X Factor. After a trying year going through a very public split with ex-husband Lamar Odom, a brief fling with rapper French Montana—she’s ready to step out on her own terms. 

The cover star of Complex’s August/September issue spent time in Los Angeles with Complex’s music editor Lauren Nostro talking about her loyalty to her family, her tough romantic year and learning to feel herself. Photographed by Steven Gomillion, Khloé Kardashian is fiercer and stronger than ever. Be sure to buy Complex's Aug/Sep 2015 Issue now!
