Kim Kardashian is one of the most beautiful and sought after women in Hollywood today. Her love life has been the talk of the tabloids ever since this reality star has been thrust into the spotlight. With Kim’s dating life being the talk of the town once again, here is a look through the downs and ups and more downs of this Kardashian’s love life.
10. Cristiano Ronaldo
The famous footballer had a whirlwind fling with Kim as photos of them were popping up in Madrid kissing outside of a restaurant. Unfortunately, it didn’t last longer than a game of soccer.
9. Shengo Deane
Who doesn’t remember on Kourtney and Kim Take New York, when Miss. Kardashian fell for her very buff and very Australian body guard only to have him ripped away when he got called to protect someone else’s assets, no pun intended? When Kim was going through a rough time this past fall, Shengo said, “Kim's going through a hard time so I messaged her and said `all the best'. We're still friends.'' Though their tryst lasted only a few episodes, it seems this Aussie still has a soft spot for this starlet.
8. Nick Cannon
Mr. Mariah Carey was this close to making a guest appearance in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, unfortunately his relationship with Kim was brief and ended before anything could really get started, lucky for Mimi.
7. Damon Thomas
Kim was a measly 20-years-old when she married music producer, Damon Thomas. The decision to marry may have been impulsive as Kim said, “'We went to Vegas,' he said, 'Let's get married!' and I said ‘Okay’.” But it lasted for four years until the young starlet accused her husband of emotionally and physically abusing her and a messy divorce followed suit.
6. Gabriel Aubry
The two were spotted out at a Lakers game in late 2010 and rumors began spreading like wild fire that the model was out to capture Kim’s heart. Unfortunately just as soon as the relationship began, it ended, as sources say Kim believed he was using her; I can’t say I’d complain if I were Kim.
5. Miles Austin
Wider receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, Kim and Miles had a brief relationship in 2010. He showed up on a few episodes of her show, but when the pressures of dating a Kardashian got the better of him, they called it quits with sources saying their busy schedules made a romance too hard to maintain. When the two started dating, Kim said, “He's in the middle of his football season and he's focused and I'm just trying to have fun and take everything really slow.” It looks like not only did this relationship go slow, but it also hit a permanent stop sign.
4. Kanye West
The rapper marks Kim’s first serious relationship after the divorce debacle. Kanye and Kim are currently dating and according to sources, the two are getting quite serious. Rumors spiraled when Kanye appeared on an episode of Kim and Kourney’s spin off show and sparks seemed to go off with more tenacity than the Fourth of July. Now it seems, the rumors are true! Kanye will even make appearances on the reality show; looks like the proof is in the pudding, and in this case, the pudding is the highly rated and syndicated reality show that Kim and her family star in. Kanye released a song “Theraflu,” before he and Kim were officially an item, ad in it he raps, “And I admit I fell in love with Kim around the same time she fell in love with him." Sounds like a modern day love letter to me! I’m curious to see what will happen with these two love birds in the future!
3. Reggie Bush
Kim and Reggie dated for two years before they called it quits. The football stud and the reality doll were very seriously committed to each other. In fact, on multiple occasions, there were even talks of wedding bells. Kim said, “"I was telling him that last night, 'If we ever broke up ... the next guy is going to have a really hard time, because your body is so amazing!'" Sounds like true love to me, unfortunately, nothing lasts forever as they broke it off for good in 2009 and Kim was on to another stud soon after Reggie. I wonder how his body ranked in comparison?
2. Kris Humphries
It was the story heard around the world! Kim’s marriage to the Net’s Kris Humphries was being called the American version of the Royal wedding. With a two hour special on everything from the proposal to the planning, this wedding got bigger by the second. Unfortunately, 72 days later, so did the divorce. Kim said, “"I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and didn't want to disappoint a lot of people." The marriage only lasted 72 days and people are still talking about it. Media stunt or doomed nuptials from the start, either way you look at it...it doesn’t look good.
1. Ray J
The relationship that started it all, literally. Ray J and Kim K dated for about a year in 2003 and did a little more than went to dinner and the movies. A home sex video the couple made got leaked four years later in 2007 and literally launched the Armenian beauty into the realms of superstardom. She quickly sued for the rights to the tape and made $5 million off of the deal, and of course the reality show that has turned Kardashian into a household name. However, Kim said the tape didn’t jump start her career as much as everyone thinks. Kim said, “"I made a business off my family and our TV show. Before the tape came out, we were in the works to do our TV show, but people don't know that. I thought there would be a lot of misconceptions about me, so it was not even a question that it had to be a family show,” and thus the Kardashian empire was born (cue the Star Wars style credits).
