They went out on several dates in 1999 after which they went their separate ways. Perhaps it was nothing more than a teenage crush that was too good to be true.
4. Damon Thomas
Damon was the first husband in the Kim Kardashian relationship history. At the age of 19, the now mother of four ran away and got married to the music producer Damon Thomas. The bride was, however, unsure of her marriage and disclosed that she only ran away with Thomas because of ecstasy.
At the time, the media personality was just a normal girl who had not gained as much fame, and since she had not been in a serious relationship before, she threw caution to the wind and eloped with Thomas. However, the marriage came to a messy end in 2003 when the mother of four disclosed that Thomas treated her badly; subjected her to domestic violence, stalking, and emotional abuse; and forced her to go through a lip suctioning insisting that he was only after her looks. Even after the divorce, Kim Kardashian ex-husband Damon continued stalking her.
5. Ray J
William Ray Norwood Jr. is a singer, songwriter, TV personality, rapper, and entrepreneur. Ray J is one of the most popular people in the Kim Kardashian dating history mainly because of the leaked sex tape the couple had recorded while they were together.
