Damon Thomas, Kim Kardashian's Ex-Husband, Holds Hands With a Mystery Brunette in Los Angeles on May 2, 2010
Kim eloped with music producer Damon Thomas in 2000, when she was only 19. In the November 2010 issue of W, she dished on their quickie nuptials: "For my wedding I wore black leather pants, a black leather top, and Prada wedges," she said. "No flowers. And no family. It was so bizarre, I was a different person then — as I said, I always wanted to be a housewife, and I wanted to have kids at a young age. I was insecure and dependent, really the opposite of who I am today."
Thomas filed for divorce in 2003, allegedly after he caught her cheating on him with multiple men. In an interview with InTouch Weekly, he said, "She can't write or sing or dance, so she does harmful things in order to validate herself in the media. That's a fame-whore to me. It's just not cool at all.
Kardashian has told a different story, claiming to have been physically and emotionally abused throughout their dysfunctional marriage. She said, "Damon decided what we would do and when we would do it. He was very much the 'king of the castle.' He said he wanted to know where I was at all times."
