Kim Kardashian may potentially be a billionaire and have four children – North, 10, Saint, eight, Chicago, six, and Psalm, four – but she hasn't always been living her dream.

Remember when Keeping up with The Kardashians first started and she accused her sisters of being jealous of her new Bentley before hitting Khloe Kardashian with her handbag?

Or that time she lost her diamond ring in the ocean and Kourtney Kardashian delivered the classic, "Kim there's people that are dying", line?

And of course we can't forget when she was married to Kris Humphries for 72 days and Kris Jenner later threw shade at her for it?


Well, speaking of Kris (Humphries) we thought now is as good a time as ever to have a look back at everyone Kimmy K has dated; from Ray J and Reggie Bush to her bodyguard Shengo and the "love of her life" Kanye.

Check out: Kim Kardashians ex boyfriends and husbands - where are they now?

Real Kim fans will know that she first got married in 2000 when she was just 19 years old. She eloped with then boyfriend Damon Thomas - who is 10 years older than her – but they didn't last and split in 2003. Kim has since said on KUWTK that she was on ecstasy during their wedding.

Other than her dad defending OJ Simpson and being pals with Paris Hilton, Kim was mainly known (back in the 00s) for her (leaked) sex tape with Ray J. The pair started dating before Kim had officially divorced Damon and were together on/off until 2007 - shortly before KUWTK began.

Six months after splitting from Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey went on a date to the cinema with Kim but he's since hinted that she may have called the paps. "She left about halfway through and went to the restroom, and then shockingly, there were 25 paparazzi when we left the theatre. I think there were other things in play on our little rendezvous," he told Andy Cohen. Despite insisting she "couldn't be a nicer girl", they haven't kept in touch.

Kim and Nick Cannon dated between 2006 and 2007 but they split because the KUWTK star allegedly lied to him about her sex tape. "This was my issue. We talked about this tape... And she told me there was no tape," he said on The Howard Stern Show.
"If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down and be like 'That was before me' because she is a great girl. 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?"

OK so Miles almost slipped our minds tbh and that's probably because him and Kim were in a long distance relationship. Distance didn't make the heart grow fonder and they split in 2010.

If you watch KUWTK it's quite obvious why Kim and Kris didn't last – because they were completely different. Nevertheless we did see the moment they got engaged and thanks to Kris we got to see the iconic moment Kim lost her diamond earring in the ocean. The pair tied the knot in 2011 but after 72 days and crying on her reality show, they called it quits.

Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian

Yeah we didn't see this coming either. Months after filing for divorce, Kim started dating comedian Pete Davidson. Opening about their relationship on The Kardashians she admitted, "I was just thinking like, 'heard about this BDE [big dick energy], need to get out there.' I was just basically DTF [down to f--k]," Kim added. They lasted nine months but split in August 2022.

Since splitting from Kim, Pete has apparently dated model Emily Ratajkowski, his Bodies Bodies Bodies co-star Chase Sui Wonders and Outer Banks star Madelyn Cline.

Before their split, Kim spoke out about her ex-husband's tweets. On Instagram she explained, "As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder.

"Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows know incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.

"I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of my children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health."

''But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health. Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behaviour know that the family is powerless unless the person is a minor."

The mum of four continued on to say, "People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgemental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try. I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and is actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions.

"He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man, who experienced the personal loss of his mother, and has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is highlighted by his bipolar disorder.

"Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words sometimes do not align with his intentions."
