Kim Kardashian was married twice before she met husband Kanye West, who she is now divorced from. Here's a look at her ex-boyfriends and ex-husbands...
Before she tied the knot with the rapper – who she shares four children with – The Kardashians star was married to Kris Humphries and had a few other serious relationships, including a now-infamous relationship with Ray-J.
Kim's most recent relationship was with Pete Davidson who she grew close with in the wake of her famous stint hosting Saturday Night Live in October 2021.
Here's a look at Kim's dating history and ex-husbands, from Damon Thomas to Ray J...
Kim Kardashian and Damon Thomas
With an age gap of 10 years between them, Kim was just 19 when she married music producer Damon Thomas.
Their marriage lasted three years from 2000 to 2003, with Kim claiming in the divorce papers he had become controlling.
Although Kim rarely spoke about their relationship, she did reveal to Scott Discick in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians she was “on ecstasy” when she married Damon.
Kim Kardashian and Ray J
Now best known as the rapper who made a sex tape with Kim, Ray J dated the reality TV queen on and off from 2002 until 2007, which is when the singer is said to have sold their, erm, intimate video.
Talk of their relationship re-surfaced recently, when Ray J claimed a second sex tape of them together exists and that Kim has always had possession of the tapes.
Kim Kardashian and Nick Lachey
Kim dated TV star Nick Lachey in 2006 following his high-profile divorce from Jessica Simpson.
Years after splitting from Kim, Nick claimed she used him for publicity, telling a US tabloid: “We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside.”
Kim Kardashian and Nick Cannon
Kim and TV presenter Nick dated from 2006 to 2007 and apparently split over the sex tape she’d made with Ray J.
Nick, who shares two children with ex-wife Mariah Carey, said on The Howard Stern Show: “This was my issue. We talked about this tape…And she told me there was no tape… She’s actually one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?”
Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush
Kim and NFL star Reggie dated from 2007 to 2009 before breaking up and later reuniting, but they eventually ended amicably.
Kim Kardashian and Miles Austin
Despite branding their romance “the real deal”, Kim and American football player Miles split in 2010 following a long-distance romance.
According to People there was “no huge reason except their distance apart” that led to their split.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Who can forget Kim and basketball player Kris were married for just 72 days in 2011?
Kris later described their marriage as “brutal but 100 per cent real” when hit by claims their relationship was fake.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kim and Kanye started dating in 2012 and they married in 2014.
They now have four kids; North, six, Saint, four, Chicago, two, and Psalm, 10 months.
Early on in 2021, it was revealed Kim and Kanye are getting a divorce, with Kim saying their separate lives – Kanye spends most of his time in Wyoming – simply weren't working.
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson
Kim and Pete dated for nine months before deciding to call it quits at the start of August.
Rumours began to whirr online about their relationship at the beginning of November after Kim and Pete Davidson were spotted celebrating Halloween together days after her SNL debut.
Speculation around their romance swirled for months before Kim finally decided to post about her new boyfriend on Instagram, but other than the odd social media post they pretty much kept their relationship out of the limelight.
That was, however, until Kim began filming for The Kardashians season two. Pete is thought to have made a brief appearance in the upcoming series, which began filming before they went their separate ways.
Pete and Kim broke up after they had to make things work long-distance while he was working on a film in Australia. According to Entertainment Tonight their schedules became so busy the spark between them had 'faded'.
