Star of social networks and the small screen, Kim Kardashian was married twice before sharing the daily life of Kanye West.
Since April 2012, Kim Kardashian lives a passionate romance with Kanye West. But before sharing her life with Kanye and starting a family with him, the reality TV star and businesswoman has been married twice despite the difficulties.
Kim Kardashian: “I got married under ecstasy. The first time.”
In 2000 at the age of 20, and long before the release of the sex tape that revealed her to the public, the daughter of Kris Jenner and the illustrious lawyer Robert Kardashian said “yes” for life to music producer Damon Thomas. A first marriage of which she does not keep good memories. “I got married under ecstasy. The first time.” said the mother of North, Chicago, Saint and Psalm in an episode of The Incredible Kardashian Family. The love story even turned into a drama because, during a television interview, she shared her past as a battered woman, admitting that Damon Thomas had been violent during their marriage. Allegations that the latter has fiercely denied. Their divorce was pronounced in 2004.
Kim Kardashian married to basketball player Kris Humphries
Six years later, and more precisely in October 2010, Kim Kardashian crossed paths with basketball player Kris Humphries. Seven months after the beginning of their life together, the couple decided to get engaged and married in a lavish ceremony in August 2011. A marriage that the world knows well for its short duration. After 72 days, the founder of KKW Beauty filed for divorce for irreconcilable differences.
Adding insult to injury, so the proceedings lasted longer than their union. On April 19, 2013, the ex-spouses had managed to reach an agreement avoiding a trial. They were declared officially divorced in early June 2013. Seven years later, this marriage is still the subject of mockery and criticism. Some believe that the relationship of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries was just a charade or a publicity stunt for the basketball player, whose name is the basketball player is known worldwide because of this union.
Kris Humphries: “I was clearly naive.”
“Our relationship was 100% real,” so Kris Humphries clarified. In an article unveiled in March 2019 on the site The Player’s Tribune, of which he is the co-founder, the now-retired basketball player returned to his journey and, in particular, to his whirlwind marriage with Kim Kardashian. “I should have known what I was getting into. I was clearly naive about how my life would change. But the thing that bothers me is when people say my marriage was fake,” he confided, “I never wanted to be that guy.”
The notoriety and buzz around his former relationship, which he hardly expected, was a real embarrassment. “When it became clear that it wasn’t working anymore… What can I say? It sucked. It’s never easy to survive the embarrassment of something like that, with your friends, your family… But when it’s all happening publicly, in the eyes of the world, it’s a whole other level. It was brutal.” Since this romance, Kris Humphries has more or less fallen back into anonymity. His private life is once again a mystery.
