Every celebrity needs a ride-or-die friend, and Jonathan Cheban has been that for Kim Kardashian for years. The social media personality, also known as Foodgod, has been BFFs with the reality star since meeting at a mutual friend’s birthday party about a decade ago.

Throughout Kim’s ups and downs, Jonathan has been there at her side, but he rarely makes appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians in recent years. If the lack of Cheban’s presence on KUWTK has you concerned, here’s the ultimate update on his friendship with Kim.

Fans who have been worried about the status of their friendship can rest easy, because they did recently take a vacation together last year. According to Vanity Fair, Cheban was one of the lucky friends who chose to accompany Kim Kardashian to Tahiti for her infamous 40th birthday bash.

Jonathan also took to Instagram to send lots of love her way on her special day. In fact, Kim was even featured in the video! “KIM…Happy Birthday to the most awesome and amazing best friend anyone could ask for!,” he wrote. “I hope you know how much I love and appreciate you!! I am so happy we have been able to spend countless times laughing and growing! You have grown into a legend! You’re not just my best friend, You’re the best Period!!!”

You can see his heartfelt post below.

Cheban also was part of Kim’s 2020 family Halloween costume, hilariously dressing up as the cast of Tiger King with his bestie.

Even though Jonathan Cheban hasn’t appeared on Kim Kardashian’s Instagram page in a hot minute, it’s pretty clear they’re closer than ever. His Instagram Story posts also often feature Kim, and their adventures are well-documented.

Cheban and Kardashian clearly don’t feel the need to prove their friendship to the world, but they’re surely friends for the long haul.
