Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West has been compared to Marilyn Monroe.

The 35-year-old reality TV star's best friend Jonathan Cheban has praised Kim as an inspiration and claimed people are obsessed with her.

He told New You magazine: "When you are best friends with the most famous girl in the world, it's like being best friends with Marilyn Monroe. People are infatuated and obsessed.

"Everyone wants to be like Kim even if they aren't gorgeous. They will try in their own version to dress like her.

"She's a TV star. This also drives me nuts about people saying, 'Why is she famous?' If you have a TV show for 20 seasons in 180 countries, you would be famous as well, but you do not."

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian West's younger sister, Khloe Kardashian compared herself to Marilyn with this nipslip nude pic:

Jonathan was also full of praise for Kim's husband Kanye West, calling the 38-year-old rapper and designer a "genius".

He said: "Kids have been dressing like Kanye for the past four or five years and it's now becoming mainstream to the point where American Apparel and H&M are doing the long shirts and his type of sweatshirts. His sneakers are revolutionary."
