Kim Kardashian can now be married to Kanye West, but this is actually his third throttle at the wedding. Although everyone is aware of her 72-day wedding with Kris Humphries in 2011, few know that she was married once before.
She married her first husband, music producer Damon Thomas, when she was only 19 years old in 2000. However, they separated a few years later, but they never talked about why. Their 2003 divorce papers were discovered, revealing how dark their marriage was.

If Kardashian left their house, Thomas had to know her every step. In her judicial statement, Kardashian said, “Damon told me not to leave the house unless I told her first when and where I was going.” She added, “If Damon wasn’t home, I had to call him and ask for permission to leave the house.
And sometimes, even if Kardashian asked to go to dinner with long-time friends, Thomas wouldn’t let her go.
“ For example, it did not allow me to go to the mall alone, or with friends. He told me he didn’t want men to have the opportunity to hit me,” she says.
Next: He wanted her to be “perfect”.

Thomas’s control behavior extended beyond knowing where Kardashian was at all times. He even began to take control of her looks, and forced her to undergo plastic surgery. According to The Daily Mail, he paid his liposuction of $3,650 to make it “perfect”. He also pushed her to get $1,000 in additional surgery.

We all know how close Kardashian is to his family, but when she was married to Thomas, he tried to separate them. “He would have shown naked photos of one of Kim’s sisters to his father, the “prostitutes”, reports the Daily Mail.
Thomas would have even tried to brainwash Kardashian to make him believe that his mother and sisters were “bad.”

Divorce documents revealed how violent Kardashian’s marriage with Thomas was. According to the Daily Mail, “Thomas hit her in the face, hit her against the walls and threw her into the room, leaving her bruised and beaten.”
Apparently, Thomas continued to abuse him even after their separation in April 2003. He picked up items from their house once, and “he came to see me and slammed me against the wall of the closet,” Kardashian recalls.

In 2017, Thomas talked about what he thinks of Kardashian after all these years. In an interview with In Touch Weekly, he crushed his ex calling him basically looking for attention and without talent.
“ She can’t write, sing, dance, so she does harmful things to validate herself in the media,” he says. “She’s a famous prostitute for me. It’s just not cool at all.”
Given the empire that Kardashian built and all the success she found in her life, we will say that it was she who took over.
