Kim Kardashian has shared an Instagram message to her story wishing David Grutman a happy birthday. As he turns 48, her followers are wondering exactly who he is and how the pair first became friends.
She’s only just got back from celebrating Camp North but never forgets one of her bestie’s birthdays. One of those people is David, who is not just Kim’s but her sister Khloe Kardashian’s good friend too.
As the owner and partner in several Miami-based restaurants and night clubs, David has quickly become well-known among many A-Listers, which explains why Kim referred to him as the “King of Miami” in her story post.
