Kim Kardashian’s romances have been front and center since the star rose to fame. Take a look back at the loves of Kim’s life from her first wedding to her current marriage struggles with Kanye West.
Kim Kardashian‘s personal life has been in the public eye for over a decade. Ever since formally introducing herself in 2007 in the debut episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim has made herself known as a prominent socialite and powerful businesswoman. Over the years, Kim has enjoyed incredibly joyful highs and endured devastating lows.
Right now, Kim is likely undergoing an incredibly difficult moment in her life. After six years of marriage and four children, it seems that Kim might be ending her third marriage, according to multiple reports. As fans learn the news and send love to Kim, take a look back at the men Kim has dated and married.
Years before KUWTK even started filming, Kim’s first marriage played out quite unexpectedly. Kim eloped with music producer Damon Thomas in a secret Las Vegas wedding in 2000. At the time, Kim was only 19 years old. Between her family’s disapproval and alleged abuse from Damon, the marriage didn’t last long at all. Damon eventually filed for divorce in 2003, with the legal proceedings finalized in 2004.
It wasn’t long after her divorce that Kim started dating singer Ray J. The pair met while Kim was working as Ray J’s sister, Brandy‘s, assistant. The pair dated on and off between 2005 and 2007, but circumstances got very difficult for the two after they split. In the time after their breakup, a sex tape that the former couple made leaked and was sold to Vivid Entertainment. Making the matter more precarious, the video leaked at the time that KUWTK debuted.
As Kim’s star began to rise thanks in large part to KUWTK, she started dating former Nickelodeon star Nick Cannon. The pair only dated for a few months, but Nick opened up about their time together and the reason for their split, years later. “This was my issue. We talked about this tape,” he shared during a 2013 appearance on The Howard Stern Show. “And she told me there was no tape. 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,” he continued. “But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape? And I still think she might have even had a part to play with [its release].”
Kim’s next beau was NFL star Reggie Bush, whom she dated on and off between 2007 and 2010. The two tried to make their relationship work as much as possible, but due to the demands of Reggie’s football career, and Kim’s continued success with KUWTK as well as new ventures, things fizzled out. But that didn’t stop rumors from swirling that Reggie was going to propose to Kim when they were together. The reality TV star, however, was quick to shut down rumors. “A radio interviewer asked what I dreamed for in 2010 and I was hesitant and thinking about it and they said what about ring,” she wrote on her old blog. “I said yes, a Superbowl ring for Reggie. Then they said that if he gets a Superbowl ring, I get an engagement and I said ‘ok deal!’”
After some casual flings and dating around after Reggie, Kim seemed to finally find her everlasting love. Kim started dating Kris Humphries in December 2010. The former couple’s relationship was chronicled in the press as well as on KUWTK. After only six months of dating, Kris was ready to take his romance with Kim to the next level. The NBA star proposed to Kim on an episode of KUWTK with a stunning a 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring.
The two wed in August 2011, with the ceremony televised for viewers in an episode of KUWTK. Although the ceremony was positively stunning and the couple seemed so happy, Kim’s fairytale ending wasn’t meant to be with Kris. The couple’s marriage lasted a mere 72 days before Kim filed for divorce from Kris. In a May 2017 interview with Andy Cohen, Kim confessed that she knew her marriage wasn’t meant to last while she was on her honeymoon.
“At the time I didn’t even — I just thought, ‘Holy sh*t, I’m 30 years old. I better get this together; I better get married.’ I think a lot of girls do go through that — where they freak out and think they’re getting old and they have to figure it out,” she shared on Watch What Happens Live. “But I knew, like, [by the] honeymoon it wasn’t going to work out.” Kim and Kris’s divorce was finalized in June 2013, in the midst of a newfound relationship.
After her highly publicized split from Kris, Kim started dating her longtime friend Kanye West in the spring of 2012. Kim and Kanye ran in the same social circles for years before taking their friendship to the next level. It wasn’t long after the pair started dating that they hit a major milestone in their relationship and in their individual lives. On June 15, 2013, just over one year after they officially started dating, Kim and Kanye welcomed their precious daughter, North West, into the world.
Four months later, Kanye proposed to Kim on her 33rd birthday, and the couple wed less than a year later in May 2014 in a romantic ceremony at Fort di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. Fans absolute fawned over the photos of the couple’s lavish wedding, and friends and family alike were so excited to see Kim and Kanye’s life together flourish.
After their romantic Italian nuptials, Kim and Kanye continued to expand their family. In December 2015, the couple welcomed their second child, son Saint. But Kim struggled with intense health complications during both of her first pregnancies, citing pre-eclampsia. As such, Kim’s physicians advised against her getting pregnant again. Kim and Kanye’s third child, daughter Chicago, was welcomed into the world on January 15, 2018 via surrogate, as was Kim and Kanye’s fourth child, son Psalm, born on May 9, 2019.
Kim and Kanye’s marriage has been the subject of tremendous media attention. The couple, however, always maintained a united front. And Kim has been incredibly supportive of Kanye’s fashion and music career, while also being honest about some of the struggles they face as Kanye continues to deal with his bipolar disorder. But after four kids and six years of marriage, it seems that their romance might be coming to an end.
Reports circulated on January 5 that Kim and Kanye were practically heading for a divorce. “He knows that she’s done. She has had enough, and she told him that she wants some space to figure out her future,” a source told People. “He’s okay. He’s sad, but okay. He knows the inevitable will happen, and he knows that it’s coming soon,” the source added of Kanye’s current state. Fans are certainly dismayed by the news. Just as 2021 was starting, only time will tell what the future holds for the couple.
Elon Musk Spotted At Airport In 1st Photos Since Being ‘Semi-Separated’ From Grimes
Elon Musk was spotted sipping a drink after landing at a private Los Angeles airport and leaving a building on the night of Sept. 24.
Elon Musk, 50, was photographed for the first time since his split from Grimes, 33, on the night of Sept. 24. The Tesla CEO left a building after landing at a private airport in Los Angeles, CA and appeared to be taking a sip of a drink at one point. He was wearing a black jacket over a black top and black pants and looked calm and relaxed as he walked by cameras. Check out the pics HERE.
Elon’s latest sighting happened just hours after he confirmed that he and Grimes, who share one-year-old son X Æ A-XII, separated after dating for three years. “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms,” he told Page Six, adding that working on Space X in Texas keeps him traveling while she is staying “primarily in LA.”
“She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room,” he shared.
Before their separation, Elon and Grimes made headlines for attending the 2021 Met Gala earlier this month. Although she walked the red carpet alone, he joined her later on inside the event. They were also seen again while leaving New York City together with their dog and Grimes’ pink locks got some attention.
When Elon isn’t making headlines for his personal life, he’s doing so with his company Space X. The company just successfully launched a historic all-civilian flight on Sept. 15 and it marked the first time people had traveled to space without an astronaut on board. It got the attention and praise of many impressive people, including Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, who publicly congratulated Elon for the big achievement.
“Congratulations to @ElonMusk and the @SpaceX team on their successful Inspiration4 launch last night. Another step towards a future where space is accessible to all of us,” he wrote in a tweet shortly after the launch.
Dua Lipa Wears Miniskirt & Sweater With Nothing Underneath For Dinner With Gigi Hadid After Runway Debut
Dua Lipa channeled the ’00s with this Versace logo skirt and bright cardigan as she headed to dinner with BF Anwar’s sister Gigi.
Dua Lipa, 26, having a serious fashion moment. Fresh off her catwalk debut, the British born singer once again donned Versace as as she headed to dinner at Ristorante La Briciola with boyfriend Anwar Hadid‘s sister Gigi, also 26, in Milan on Friday, Sept. 24. Dua left little to the imagination in the early aughts inspired look, which included a bright green cardigan sweater with nothing underneath, as well as a logo Versace skirt that served up some serious ’70s vibes with its groovy pink, green and yellow pattern.
She added a satin pink mary jane shoe with a platform, as well as a matching pink leather bag. The outfit also perfectly matched her bright neon eye shadow, which she also rocked while sashaying down the catwalk for the first time ever. Finally, she switched up her hair and throw it back into a center parted bun, adding a chunky chain necklace as a finishing touch to the outfit.
Gigi also looked gorgeous in a burgundy outfit. The asymmetrical skirt, which featured a slit, and knotted crop top were made out of the same heavy cotton material. She accessorized with a black and silver chain belt, and a matching pair of chunky Prada loafers. The California native also opted to keep her hair back in a center parted bun.
Earlier in the day, Dua unexpectedly opened Versace’s Milan show, marking the first time the pop star has appeared in a fashion show. The “Levitating” singer recently shot a massive ad campaign for the iconic designer — which is helmed by the one and only Donatella Versace — to promote their Fall 2021 collection. In the photos, Dua looked wildly different with bright red hair. Notably, Gigi was also in the Versace show and likely gave the pop star plenty of pointers before her nerve wracking catwalk debut. Dua looked absolutely amazing as she modeled variousd looks from the brand, including a Barbie pink sequin ensemble.
The legendary Donatella recently reflected on her first time meeting Dua, which lead to their working relationship many years later. “I met Dua for the first time a few years ago in London. I knew she was a beautiful girl but when I heard the timbre of her voice. I realized immediately she had something unique and special,” she said in a statement back in June when the initial campaign was released. “Since then I’ve watched her career take off and partnered with her for many amazing moments. Right now, I cannot think of a better woman to embody the spirit of Versace and of this collection,” she added.
John Zabel: 5 Things To Know About Britney Spears’ Potential New Conservator Replacing Dad Jamie
Britney Spears’ lawyer has named John Zabel, a CPA and business owner, as the candidate to temporarily replace Jamie Spears as conservator of the singer’s estate.
Britney Spears, 39, has her sights set on a new candidate to act as the temporary conservator of her estate. The singer and her lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, are fighting to remove Jamie Spears, 69, from his role as conservator of Brit’s estate and replace him with a temporary candidate before dissolving the conservatorship altogether. They had previously named licensed CPA Jason Rubin as their pick for the job, but on Sept. 23, Rosengart withdrew Jason’s nomination and suggested that John Zabel replace Jamie and temporarily control Britney’s finances and estate instead, according to The New York Times.
A decision on Britney’s conservatorship will likely be made at her next court date, which is scheduled for September 29. There, John may very well become the Grammy-winning singer’s temporary conservator of her estate. Here are five key things you need to know about John Zabel.
1. John owns his own company
John has a long list of credentials, starting with his position as the owner of Media Finance Structures, LLC (MFS). According to his LikedIn page, John has owned the company since March 2002. MFS offers “financial or operational management of entertainment projects,” the website states, and it has worked with major studios like Sony, Lionsgate, Parmount, CBS Films, and more. Of John, the company says, “John Zabel brings over three decades of industry experience to MFS, and is committed to delivering unbeatable client service and focused, tangible results.”
2. He’s a licensed CPA
John is a licensed Certified Public Accountant, just like Jason. He pursued accounting during his undergraduate years at CSU Long Beach in the early 1980s, and then later on completed the Exec. Management Program at UCLA in 1990. Considering the conservator of Britney’s estate would handle her finances, someone who is a CPA is ideal for the position.
3. He used to work as an Auditor
John’s first major job in accounting that is listed on his LinkedIn page is as a Senior Auditor for Arthur Young & Co. He held that position from 1981 to 1984. Then, John worked as a Senior Auditor for Ernst & Young from 1981 to 1984.
4. He was the Senior VP of Sony Pictures Entertainment
After he left Ernst & Young, John snagged a job at Sony Pictures Entertainment as the Senior Vice President. Sony Pictures Entertainment is headquartered in Culver City, Ca., and has an estimated revenue of $9.316 billion. It operates under Sony Pictures, which is one of the “Big Five” major film studios in the U.S.
John’s job at Sony was brief: he held the position from May 1984 to March 1995, and then moved on to work as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer for Mandalay Entertainment from March 1995 to March 2002. After that, he created MFS.
5. He will have big responsibilities if he becomes Britney’s conservator.
John’s biggest task ever may be coming soon, if he is indeed named conservator of Britney’s estate. Jamie has held that job for over 13 years now, but amidst the #FreeBritneyMovement, he’s agreed to step down from his position. Britney’s personal conservator is Jodi Montgomery, who has also been onboard to dissolve Britney’s conservatorship. If John does replace Jamie, he’ll be in control of the singer’s finances and estate. That is all expected to be decided at the highly-anticipated Sept. 29 court date.
