18. Ray J
Kim Kardashian has to be extra thankful to her ex-boyfriend, since he’s the one starring in her notorious sex tape that originally made her famous. Ray J and Kim K dated back in 2004-2006, but the aftertaste of that romance is still there. Ray J reportedly sent the check that totaled his profits off of that old sex tape as a wedding gift to Kim and Kanye. A fruit basket would do, too.
17. Damon Thomas
Damon Thomas is known as ½ of the production duo The Underdogs. Okay, let’s be honest, he’s much better known as Kim K’s first husband. The two were married from 2000 to 2003. Thomas later told the media that his ex-wife “…is obsessed with fame. 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.” Ouch.
16. Nick Lachey
Jessica Simpson’s ex-husband Nick Lachey also got a piece of Kardashian love. The two were dating for a bit in 2010 and Lachey was impressed by Kim’s fame-grabbing skills. “We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside. There are certain ways to play this game, and some people play it well,” Lachey told the press.
