As the reality star is linked to SNL funnyman Pete Davidson, DailyMail.com takes a look back at Kim Kardashian’s relationship history and her celebrity romances.
Damon Thomas (2000-2004)
At just 19, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star married producer Damon Thomas, who is ten years her senior. Their short-lived marriage only three years before she filed for divorce, which she later revealed to be quite turbulent as he allegedly subjected her to physical abuse.
The KKW Beauty mogul, who admitted to being high on ecstasy when they eloped during a chat with Scott Disick back on her reality show in 2018, claimed in divorce papers he ‘punched’ her, to which he has denied.
She also accused him of slamming her against a wall and throwing ‘throw her across the room, leaving her bruised and battered.’ Additionally, he reportedly made her quit her job, according to their divorce papers, which were filed at Los Angeles Superior Court back in 2003.

Ray J (2003 to 2006)
Just one year after her divorce, she began a relationship with singer Ray J after working as a stylist for his sister. While the pair’s relationship only spanned less than three years, it remains one of her most notable romances as a sex tape of them leaked, which propelled her to stardom.
Despite never initially suing Vivid Entertainment to prevent its release, they came to an agreement and settled for a ‘financial arrangement’ the company’s co-chairman told TMZ, at the time.
While the former couple have rarely spoken about their relationship, Ray J described Kim as ‘the same kind of player’ as him and they they ‘were both cheaters’ on Celebrity Big Brother in 2017.

Nick Lachey (2006)
Next, she began seeing Nick Lachey, who stated in 2019 they were never serious. While speaking of their ‘one date together’ to watch The Da Vinci Code in 2006, the ex-husband of Jessica Simpson said calling her an ex of his would be ‘a little bit of a liberal use of the term.’
‘She left about halfway through and went to the restroom and then shockingly there were 25 paparazzi when we left the theater,’ he said on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. I ‘think there were other things in play on our little rendezvous.’
Regardless, he said Kim couldn’t have been ‘a nicer girl’ and they had a ‘great time.’

Kim Kardashian and Nick Cannon (2006 to 2007)
Despite describing the mother-of-four as ‘one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet,’ they ended things over a discussion about her sex tape, which he claims Kim denied entirely.
During an interview on The Howard Stern Show, the ex-husband of Mariah Carey said: ‘This was my issue. We talked about this tape…And she told me there was no tape.’
‘The fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?’ he said was his deal-breaker. ”I still think she might have even had a part to play with [its release].’

Reggie Bush (2007 to 2010)
Kim and the NFL star were on-and-off from 2007 until 2010, as her fame rose on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Despite a promising romance, they ultimately parted ways because they weren’t able to spend enough time together.
Toward the end of their relationship, he made the decision as Kim began ‘pushing for marriage’ after seeing younger sister tie the knot with then-husband Lamar Odom, according to RadarOnline.com.
At the time, he reportedly told her that he wants a wife ‘that is a support system to him’ and ‘stay at home mom to his children.’ Knowing her ‘drive and ambition,’ Bush knew she was ‘just not the right kind of girl for him to marry.’

Miles Austin (June 2010)
Kim and Miles Austin embarked on a brief summer romance, which fizzled out pretty quickly due to long distance.
Most of their relationship was spent apart due to his schedule with the Dallas Cowboys and hers to filming KUWTK. By September, they mutally went ‘their separate ways,’ according to People.
A week before the breakup, however, they were said to be ‘the real deal’ and stronger than ever, which raised eyebrows.

Kris Humphries (2010)
Kim infamously wed basketball star Kris Humphries for 72 days in 2011.
During the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion, which aired in June 2021, she admitted to having cold feet the night before the wedding, but felt it was too late to back out.
The aspiring lawyer said she feared that if she left that she would be known forever as the runaway bride and that ‘it will be a huge joke.’
She then confessed that the TV wedding did push her down the aisle as she didn’t want to ‘let everyone down.’
Humphries, evangelical Christian, petitioned for an annulment after Kardashian filed divorce papers because he felt defrauded.
