The “Queen of Reality TV” Kim Kardashian hasn’t always had the best taste in men since she became such a well-known household name.
Lets do a run through of her boo thangs that ‘hit it’, ‘the ones that didn’t stand a chance’, (I’m wondering why?), and the one that got the prize (North West), if you know what I mean.
The 32-year-old hasn’t made much of an effort to discuss the man she once called her husband and according to many reports, it was for a good reason.
After being once a happy couple and running off to Clark, NV., to get married on January 22, 2000 without either of their parents consent, the Kardashian was reportedly a victim of domestic violence at the hands of her now ex-husband Damon Euin Thomas.
The reality star claimed her ex-husband, a music producer and partner at Underdog Entertainment, became abusive only a few months after their wedding. She also recalls Thomas, now 39, punching her in the face, slamming her against walls, throwing her across the room and later giving her $3,650 to get liposuction because he wanted her to be “perfect.”
And in a situation like this, one would think [Kim] would have been the one to file for a divorce, but it was the other way around. Even a blonde would be like “I’m Out!”
In 2003, after three years of abuse, Thomas filed for a divorce and was reportedly ordered to give Kardashian a lump-sum of $56,000.
So if you thought that was the last of the Kardashian, well your wrong! She then met R&B singer Ray J— while working as a stylist for his sister Brandy— and was the man to turn this scarred widower into a STAR!
It was love at first sight for these two, whom later shot a sex tape in the privacy of their hotel room and not knowing it was going to be the beginning of Kim’s blooming career.
Even though the tape was said to be only for their own viewing, it was eventually leaked (we all know by who–> Kris Jenner) on the internet in February 2007, causing them to split and later sold to Vivid Entertainment for $5 million. The tape was reportedly one of the company’s highest-selling X-rated video.
Side note: Many celebrities and never before heard of folks are still trying to reach Kim’s level (sex tape fame).
The one that never had a chance, Nick Lachey–once married to Jessica Simpson— had the opportunity to get close to Kim back in 2006 after a few photos of them holding hands began circulating around the web. The duo however didn’t last long and Kim was ‘allegedly’ on a break from Ray J, despite no confirmation of them ever being in a serious relationship.
Childhood star turned high profiled celeb, Nick Cannon had a short relationship with the Kardashian (September 2006) before meeting his future wife Mariah Carey. Cannon and Kim dated for about three months after calling it quits because things between them wasn’t going all as planned.
According to Cannon, who wasn’t too sad the split (January 2007) and later met Carey, “This was my issue. We talked about this tape..and she told me there was no tape. If she might have been honest with me, I might have tried to hold her down and be like ‘that was before me’ because she is a great girl.“
He adds, “She’s actually one of the nicest
hoes people you’ll ever meet. But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?.. I still think she might have played a part in releasing the tape.”
Both Cannon and Carey now lives happily together in a New York City condo and raising adorable twins, “Monroe and Moroccan“.
In 2007, there was New Orleans Saints football star Reggie Bush who just started dating Kardashian as she was getting ready to debut her first reality TV show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” on E!.
These two quickly became a power couple (more like the Beyonce and Jayz of the 07s) and the show captured plenty of the drama throughout their relationship. Sad to say, they called it quits in July 2009 but reunited for a few months right before Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom‘s wedding that September.
Reggie and Kim’s failed relationship really took a toll on her as she started exploring her options, I mean running through athletes like there was no tomorrow.
She was photographed locking lips with sexy soccer stud Cristiano Ronaldo in April 2010. The relationship never had a chance.
She then dated Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin in June but because of their crazy schedules, the couple split in September 2010. Austin also appeared on Kim’s hit reality TV show.
Then finally there was Mr. Right!..I got you right there, didn’t I? Oh well, he was only Mr. Right for 72 days of marriage.
Kim and Kris Humphries started out as the perfect couple in December 2010–meeting a basketball game. The New Jersey Nets player and reality star were a match made in heave, according to close friends.
Frequent on the show, Humphries proposed to Kim in a room filled with rose petals in May 2011, and walked down the aisle in August in front of 400 close family, friends and celebrities.
They’ve since spent a few months in New York City and before heading back to L.A, Kim filed for divorce on October 31, 2011 citing irreconcilable differences. Everything was filmed and aired on “Kim & Kourtney: Take New York“.
The former couple officially got divorced on April 19, 2013 due to a drawn out court case of who gets what and who betrayed who.
Now to end this reality star’s sexcapeds! Kim– during her divorce case with Kris– was shacking up with rapper Kanye West and went public early April 2012.
West, who appeared to be Mr. Wrong and was most definitely WRONG in the paparazzi’s eyes, was definitely Mr. HELL RIGHT for Kim and after a few months of dating he announced while performing in Atlantic City that they were expecting. Doing what most men wish they could have done since she became mainstream– talk about winning the prize!
In June 2013, Kim and Kanye welcomed a baby girl named North West, (yeah, I know, so please respect the baby’s name..alright!). Plus, word on the street is that Kanye, 36, is secretly planning a big wedding.
They’ve been discussing marriage for a while. It would be the third wedding for Kardashian but the very first for West — which means that her initial desire for a low-key, intimate affair (following her ill-fated $10 million 2011 nuptials to Kris Humphries) might go by the wayside.
“Kanye has never been married before and wants a big wedding,” a Kardashian confidante says. “So Kim is getting used to the idea again!”
West, another insider says, “wants something really cool and big and over-the-top,” although the event would not be televised. One definite possibility?
“They’ll most likely have destination wedding,” says the confidante, noting that a bash near West’s Paris home is a contender.
Do you think Kim is ready to take such a commitment right now?
