Kim Kardashian recounts abuse at hands of ex-husband Damon Thomas
While there are plenty of breakup stories in Celebrityville, one marriage we're glad to hear is over is Kim Kardashian's nuptials to ex Damon Thomas, who apparently used to beat her constantly and mentally abuse her, according to legal documents obtained by Star. We almost forgot she used to be married, but we'll remember now.
Kim claimed in papers from 2003 that music producer Thomas, whom she married at 19 in January 2000 and divorced three years later, would punch her in the face, slam her against walls and throw her across the room, one time giving her $3,650 and demanding she get liposuction so she'd be "perfect."
One particularly traumatizing incident preceded meeting up with Justin Timberlake to go skydiving: "Before we left our home, Damon hit me in the face and cut my lip open. I fell into the bed frame and banged my knee hard. I was limping when we went skydiving."
The abuse continued throughout the marriage, Kim says, making her too afraid to call police. She claims he made her "ask permission to leave the house" and "wanted to know where I was at all times." Eventually, she did leave.
"He threatened to kill me, my family members and the guys that I am dating," she wrote, saying he repeated the threats at least 12 times, although she can't remember every incident. "At this point, I am frightened by the stories that are repeated to me."
