Kim Kardashian-West has been trending on social media for quite some time following her luxurious island getaway. 

The KKW Beauty mogul knew how and where to spend her millions--and that is by renting a private island to celebrate her 40th birthday. 

Despite COVID-19 restrictions, the reality star flew all her family and closest friends via private jet as they spent their six-day vacation in Tahiti, per E! News. 

The mother-of-four updated her nearly 200 million Instagram followers as she shared a series of behind-the-scenes snaps during their trip. 

In a lengthy post, the SKIMS founder mentioned that she felt "humbled and blessed" as she turned another year older. 

Moreover, Kim K also thanked her family and closest friends for helping her be the woman that she is now. 

In addition, she explained the preparation and the process of how she surprised her "inner circle" with a lavish trip.

"After two weeks of multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine, I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time," Kim wrote.

Unfortunately, the reality star received a ton of backlash from social media with his tone-deaf action and for breaking COVID-19 protocols. 

Aside from facing criticisms, Kim Kardashian's birthday is full of scandals and controversies.

With that being said, here are the top three shocking news during Kim K's 40th birthday bash.
