Kim Kardashian West and her sisters, the second-oldest descendants of one of the most popular families in the world, the Kardashians, have kept little of their private lives hidden from the media, which can be attributed to their popularity in the United States and the world at large. As a result, the men that Kim Kardashian dated have always been of interest to many.
For more than a decade, the American television personality and her entire family have been living their lives on television through the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, where Kim received most of the media coverage for various reasons, most of which are related to her appearance. Kim, arguably the most beautiful queen of the Kardashian Jenner clan, has been in the headlines for years because of her perfectly dressed body, which she has acquired largely under the knife. We have literally watched her body evolve into what it is today, and while some may reject her for it, she has millions of fans who are very fond of her.
Who Has Kim Kardashian Dated?
Just like her body, Kim has been in various relationships in the past that made headlines for both the right reasons and the wrong reasons. Since she has dated athletes, musicians, actors, and the like, she doesn’t seem to have any special merits in her men’s careers, but for whatever it’s worth, one similarity between her lovers in the past and in the present is that they are disguised. Let’s take a trip down memory lane to the men Kim Kardashian dated in the past and where her heart is beating right now.
A-List of Her Ex-Boyfriends
Already at the age of 19, the Kardashian beauty was already getting heavy media coverage for her love life. Despite the fact that some of her relationships lasted only a few months or even weeks, some of them lasted for several years. Here is a list of the men Kim Kardashian was with.
- TJ Jackson (1995 – 1999)
Kim was about 15 years old when the two of them went out, and that was long before the spotlight was on the reality TV star. As a result, their relationship did not receive much media attention.
- Joey Lawrence (1999)
Just like the first one, the relationship made no waves in Kim’s life and obviously ended before it had even begun, but he was one of the men Kim Kardashian was with.
- Ray J (2003 – 2006)
Perhaps the first publicly known relationship Kim entered into was while working as a stylist for Ray’s sister Brandy. Their relationship was a recurring one, but they had time to make a sex film that was later leaked. Kim’s fame was attributed to the leak, but we can’t deny that she also has business efforts and reality shows to thank for the assets she now controls.
- Nick Lachey (2006)
Despite Kim’s remarkable love for black men, she was romantically involved with the American actor, and although it was short-lived, the paparazzi made sure to capture some special moments. Lachey was one of the men who accused the reality show diva of riding the wave of his celebrity status for fame.
- Nick Cannon (2006 – 2007)
The singer and actor think Kim is a great person, but he had to let her go because she had lied to him. As he revealed at the 2012 Howard Stern Show, Kim denied ever having made a sex film when he asked her. Spoilers: The tape of Ray J was released, leading to their breakup in February of 2007. Nick went so far as to conclude that she deliberately leaked it to boost her media popularity.
- Reggie Bush (2007 – 2010)
They were a handsome couple and were performing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians when the show just started. Unfortunately, their love story could not withstand the media pressure that was weighing on them. Kim and the former NFL star separated in 2010.
- Miles Austin (2010)
Talk about keeping love in the family; after Reggie, Kim Kardashian went out with another NFL star. The relationship, which began at a time when Kim was busy filming her reality show in conjunction with Miles’ soccer season, soon evaporated. It was the distance between the two that was to blame.
- Gabriel Aubry (2010)
Kim Kardashian dated Halle Berry’s ex shortly before their second marriage. Apparently, Halle disapproved of Gabriel’s choice of her replacement, which brought the affair to a crashing halt.
While Kim Kardashian has met with several men in the past, she has had a marriage rehearsal with three of them and still enjoys marital bliss with one of them. Most notably, she became someone’s wife when she was a teenager, and in true Kim fashion, the union ended in a flash.
- Damon Thomas (2000 – 2004)
She was just 19 years old when she ran away with the music producer to Las Vegas, where they hitchhiked to Las Vegas to the dismay of her family. Later in 2003, after Thomas filed for divorce, Kim was already dating Ray J before the divorce was finalized. She blamed her failed marriage on physical and emotional abuse by her ex-husband.
- Kris Humphries (2011 – 2013)
This was another controversial relationship for Kim, who was accused of marrying Kris for money and fame. She got engaged to the NBA star in May 2011 after being together for a while. Their wedding ceremony took place on August 20, 2011, in Montecito, California, but the marriage lasted only 72 days. Kim’s second failed marriage was described by many sources as a publicity stunt and was attributed to some irreconcilable differences.
- Kanye West (Married May 24, 2014)
Unwilling to bask in the sun for too long in her failed love story with Kris, Kim began dating rapper Kanye West in April 2012. After her divorce from Kris was finalized on June 3, 2013, Kanye engaged Kim on October 23. Kim wore a wedding dress designed by Riccardo Tisci from Givenchy and walked down the aisle on May 24, 2014, the third day of her stylish wedding. The glittering event took place at Fort di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.
Despite the crazy media presence in their relationship and the fact that Kim once felt hopeless to find love, the darling of the social media seems to have found her knight in shining armor. They have three children together – North, Saint, and Chicago West – and still enjoy their marital bliss.
In addition, there were brief flings and rumors about the men Kim Kardashian was with. It was suspected that she had dated football star Cristiano Ronaldo after they were seen together in Madrid.
She was also romantically involved with Michael Copon, Shengo Deane, Alecko Eskandarian, Game, 50 Cent, Evan Ross, Shad Moss, Marques Houston, and Brandon Jenner, among others.
