Can you remember a time before you knew who Kim Kardashian was? Ten years have passed since the release of the sex tape that initiated her transformation from socialite (and Paris Hilton’s closet organizer) to celebrity, and Complex has the story of her rise. Back in 2007, Kardashian was working as Brandy’s stylist, and helping celebrities sell their used clothes on eBay. She was good friends with Paris Hilton, whose own sex tape had rocketed her to fame a few years earlier.

Complex discusses the widespread rumor that the sex tape Kardashian made with Brandy’s little brother, Ray J, was leaked by an insider—either Kardashian or her mother, Kris Jenner, who fellow daughter Khloé has been known to refer to as “Satan” — in an attempt to follow in Hilton’s footsteps. In 2015, Kardashian told Rolling Stone she knew who had leaked the tape, but that she was in “major confidentiality” and couldn’t talk about it.

While we may never know the truth behind the tape’s leak, all the news coverage surrounding it helped Kardashian and her family become household names. In October, 2007, they began starring in the E! reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and after all these years, the show is still going strong. (The 13th season premieres this month.) Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kanye West in 2014 made her a bigger star than ever, and there’s no doubt we’ll be hearing her name for many years to come.

In honor of Kardashian’s ten years of stardom, let’s check out a few of the many salacious pics she has shared on Instagram:
