Although her last public relationship was with Pete Davidson, Kim K is supposedly dating a new mystery man who goes by the moniker Fred. With another potential romantic interest on the horizon, many of us are thinking about the rest of Kim’s sordid romance history. The pop culture icon is one of the richest self-made ladies ever, and despite all of her accomplishments, this business-savvy celeb has had her share of relationship drama.
From the media spotlight on her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries to her dramatic divorce from Kanye West, there’s no shortage of polarizing news surrounding her love life. Here are the strangest things to know about Kim K’s relationship history.
She got stoned at her first wedding
Although some people might use drugs on their wedding day, not many would admit it like Kim. On a 2018 episode of KUWTK, Kim opened up about the fact that she wed music producer Damon Thomas on ecstasy and ended up getting married. The second time she did the drug, she made a sex tape. Damon says he doesn’t remember the drug-fueled ceremony. Their wedding soon came to an end after the Kardashian accused Damon of behavior that was both physically and emotionally abusive.
Ray J leaked pictures from their rumored sex tape contract
Everyone remembers Kim’s 2007 sex tape starring her and her former BF, Ray J. According to Ray J, he never leaked a sex tape, and said it was a deal between him, Kim and Kim’s mom Kris. The couple made almost 1.4 million after the video was released, and the R&B star released alleged written contracts describing the number of traps made the profit percentage agreements.
She may have staged her own wedding proposal
We know that Kim isn’t one to pass up a potential publicity moment, and after she met Kris Humphries in 2010, they tied the knot just months later in August 2011. Kris popped the big question in an episode of ‘Keeping up With the Kardashians.” The scene was filled with candles and rose petals spelling out the proposal question. According to friends of the NBA player, Kris wanted to ask the question in a more private setting, but Kim told him “how, where, and when to propose,” staging a feigned reaction of surprise.
Her wedding to Kris Humphries earned her nearly $18 million
Kim’s second marriage lasted just 72 days, and it may have been intentional. Although she always said the love story wasn’t for a payout, her decision to broadcast the wedding on the four-hour two-part E! special called “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” earned her a whopping 17.9 million, including exclusive photo rights, which were sold to People magazine. The wedding was practically free since many vendors offered complimentary services due to the media coverage.
