Let’s just say Kim Kardashian should be glad she wasn’t competing with Khloe for the hosting gig on The X Factor.

Radar Online reports that music producer Damon Thomas, Kim’s first husband, has been tapped to be a mentor to the contestants on the show.

Damon and Kim tied the knot back in 2000 (when the reality starlet was just 19!) and divorced three years later, with him accusing her of cheating with several men and her alleging physical abuse during their marriage.

Since then, Damon’s made a name for himself in the industry working with the likes of Pink, Justin Timberlake, and R. Kelly.

“We’re sure Simon is going to have great fun with this,” said one source close to the situation. “You know the tension is going to be unbelievable between Khloe and Damon.”

Knowing how sharp Khloe’s tongue can be, we’re certain she won’t be mincing words with him!
