And on her show, Revenge Body, she opened up even more about his death, saying,“My dad died in 2003. I was 19. And when it set in, I was like, you spiral. For me, my spiral was food. I gained so much weight because I was so internally just suppressing so many things that it was like, eating me alive, and I was literally eating anything."

Kim has also posted tributes in the past, sharing on Twitter, "I love our family. Thank you for EVERYTHING. I'm so grateful you are my dad! I found a 3 page letter my dad wrote me right after high school about life and it's so special to have. I re-read it last night."
