One of the self-made millionaire socialites on Netflix’s ‘Bling Empire,’ Kim Lee is a hugely successful and famous DJ. Kim Lee was born on May 22, 1988, in Orange County, and has lived in Australia, New York City, Los Angeles, and Paris, France. She has a cool mom who encourages Kim to look sexier and bolder, fully believing in the “got it, flaunt it” school of thought. Her mother’s name is Kimmy, and her stepfather (to whom she’s very close) is novelist and screenwriter Daniel Segal. On the show ‘Bling Empire,’ Kim decides to track down her biological father, who left when she was 8. But she does this only after talking with her mom and stepdad and asking their permission because she is a considerate daughter who does not want to hurt her parents’ feelings.
After an unfortunate incident causes a rift between Kim and Anna briefly, they work things out and make up when Kim apologizes for invading Anna’s privacy. Kim and Kevin have a spat, too, but they also move past it and actually become closer as friends. Kevin finds out the truth about Kim Lee’s biological father on her behalf. The sultry 32-year-old can sometimes rub people off the wrong way due to her loud, brash behavior, but she mostly means well. Curious to know more about Kim Lee’s wealth and how she amassed it?
