North Korea imposed similar bans on the use of the names of its two former leaders, Kim's father, Kim Jong Il, and grandfather, Kim Il Sung, as part of propaganda drives to build cults of personality around them.
Kim Jong Un's name is not allowed for newborns and people who share the name must not just stop using it but must change it on their birth certificates and residence registrations, KBS reported, citing an official North Korean directive. Kim Jong Il, the father of the current leader, issued the order in 2011, when his son was heir apparent, KBS said. The elder Kim died in
December that year and his son took power.South Korea's Unification Ministry, which handles ties with the North, could not immediately confirm the report but said it was plausible."The ban is highly possible since North Korea had the same policy in the era of Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung," a ministry official said.
It is not known how many people there are in North Korea called Kim Jong Un, but Kim is a very common family name and Jong Un are common given names.

According to a source for HollywoodLife, the singer thinks Kim is talent-less and is "sad" for her. "When you have no talent and no real career,the only thin you can really offer is your body.It's so sad, it is, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do. And if her man likes it and approves,so be it… Mimi prides herself on being accomplished and well-respected – that's more
than these new girls could ever say."Mum Kris Jenner is also said to be mad that Kim did the revealing shoot for free.

uncovered that point at Kim's big demands for
endorsements that include keeping up with her
lavish lifestyle.The emails were from the star's representatives stating what it would take to get Kim involved in a product launch. According to Radar, her minimum rate for endorsements is $750,000 to $1 million. Her costs also include travel related and personal appearances for Kim. She requires "5 first class tickets, plus 1 coach, first class hotel
accommodations (1 suite for talent and standard rooms for others in party), portal to portal first class exclusive ground transportation, airport greeter service, security, glam fee (day rate for her hair and makeup squad), and a per diem".Her rep also stated that Kim would need "approval over photographer, all photos used in print materials, glam squad (hair, makeup,
stylist, manicurist), hotel/airline/car service and PR usage."
The rep was willing to switch Kim for Kendall
who charges $500,000 to $1 Million, if Kim's
demands could not be met. A lot of people claim Kim has no talent, but it must count for something if you can get brands to pay $1 Million for an appearance, right? Do you think Kim's charging too much? Or is she worth every penny?
