There are a lot of things that come with the privilege of being part of the Kardashian-Jenner family. Money and beauty are the first two that come to mind. However, no matter how beautiful and rich they are, they seem to have the worst luck when it comes to men.
I’m not sure if that’s because they have horrible taste or if the only men who seem to be interested in them are, well, the kind that no other woman on earth would date. Honestly, it’s probably a combination of both.
Also, how about they stop dating rappers and professional basketball players altogether? They’ve proven themselves time and time again they are not the best kind of men for them to be with. Exhibit A is right beneath this line.
15 Tristan Thompson & Khloé Kardashian
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know who Tristan Thompson is. He’s the guy who got Khloé Kardashian pregnant and then sneaked around on her the entire time. Of all the guys Khloé has dated, this one has to be one of the worst ones. Yet, he’s the guy she picked to have a baby with. It's sad, but I mean, she had to have seen it coming, right?! What exactly was she expecting from a man who started dating her while his previous girlfriend, Jordan Craig, was pregnant with his first child? That’s not the kind of thing that screams ‘good guy’ or ‘husband material'.
I like Khloé. I wish her the best. But I have to admit that when it comes to picking men, she is like a baby with a cookie. As long as it’s chocolate flavoured, she’s good. If she wants a good man, it seems like she's gonna have to search outside of the NBA.
14 Kris Humphries & Kim Kardashian
The love story between Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian is the kind that nightmares are made of. First off, their height difference should’ve been enough to put an end to that crazy romance. How did they even kiss? He must have had to hunch down a lot to even kiss her forehead, let alone her mouth. Who is willing to put up with that kind of awkwardness for an entire lifetime?
Well, clearly not them. Their marriage only lasted 72 days.
Although the marriage probably shouldn’t have happened at all, since she was obviously not into him. I mean, her first reaction to his marriage proposal was to say “Oh my god —you're crazy.” That's not exactly the kind of thought you should be having when your man pops the question, y’know?
13 Tyga & Kylie Jenner
Who exactly is Tyga, other than the wannabe-rapper who started dating Kylie before she was old enough to vote? I’m sorry, was that too mean?
I just think she wasted a lot of time on this guy. I mean, say what you will about Kylie Jenner, but you have to admit she is beautiful (she’s invested a lot of millions making sure of it) and filthy rich. So, guys could do worse than her.
Personally, I think Tyga is not good enough for Kylie; he’s in a lot of debt, has a kid with another woman, and just never seemed right for her. Remember when he posted a photo of Kylie crying after they had broken up with the caption: "They always come back"? I think that says it all, don’t you?
12 Scott Disick & Kourtney Kardashian
I like Scott. He’s not bad looking and occasionally says something that just cracks me up. However, he’s dumb as a brick. I mean, we are talking about a man who has proudly said that his hardest decision of the day is deciding which watch to wear. Talk about things that literally nobody cares about. Yet this is the guy Kourtney picked to have, not one, but three kids with. His are the genes she wanted to pass on to her offspring. Oh well, good thing he’s pretty.
These days, he and Kourtney are no longer together and he prefers the company of Sofia Richie, a 19-year-old girl who likes partying probably just as much as he does. Her dad, Lionel Richie, must be thrilled...
11 Kanye West & Kim Kardashian
At times I feel like Kim Kardashian’s relationship is the most stable one. She’s the only one of the Kardashian-Jenners who’s legally married to the guy she shares kids with, so that’s something.
But then I remember it’s Kanye West who she’s married to, and, well, nevermind then.
And, honestly, how weird would it be to be married to someone who falls asleep without notice. Because, oh yeah, apparently Kanye does that.
During an appearance on The late Late Show with James Corden, Kim confessed that Kanye falls asleep everywhere, and that his weird sleeping habits can be really embarrassing at times. “Especially when we’re in a teacher-parent conference or like a doctor’s appointment or a meeting that he’s bringing me to, to meet fashion designers that I have never met before and he’s snoring at a restaurant,” she said to James. I mean, can someone let this woman know that NO, this is not normal, and it is likely her husband has a medical condition?
10 Lamar Odom & Khloé Kardashian
So, before Tristan Thompson, there was Lamar Odom. He and Khloé decided their ‘spark’ was strong enough to get married after knowing each other for a month. (Because yes, all good marriages start like that.)
They were legally married for seven years, but that didn’t stop him from sleeping with different women all those years. She, apparently, knew about his infidelities, but chose to ignore them because they were a byproduct of his drug addiction, which she was helping him deal with.
Oh, and all this was happening while they were also dealing with infertility issues! This woman can’t catch a break! She also didn’t seem to learn her lesson though, because she’s involved in a similar situation with her current boyfriend. Someone hug this girl, please.
9 Joe Francis & Kourtney Kardashian
There was a time when the oldest of the Kardashians dated the creator of Girls Gone Wild (you know, the videos where college girls expose their bodies in front of the camera, usually during spring break).
Their romance was brief, but when it ended, he gave Kourtney something better than his friendship. He gave her Scott.
Turns out Joe is the guy who introduced her to Scott Disick at his home in Punta Mita. So, without him, Kourtney probably wouldn’t have met Scott, so he wouldn’t have been part of their reality show, which means we probably would not know who Scott Disick is, and our lives would probably be a little better because of it. So thanks, Joe Francis. Thanks a lot. For that, you are on this list.
8 Damon Thomas & Kim Kardashian
This is the guy Kim K married when she was 19 years old. And, honestly, of all the dumb, ridiculous men the Kardashian-clan have dated, I personally feel like this guy is by far the worst. Not only did he marry Kim when she was barely of age (him being 10 years older than she) but he also abused the star.
According to the divorce papers, this guy has been known to hurt Kim, both physically and emotionally. Apparently, at some point in their relationship, he gave her $3,650 to get liposuction because he didn’t think she was skinny enough. How is it that men like that still exist?! I hope he’s kicking himself knowing all the fame and success she’s achieved, partially because of her curves!
7 Travis Scott & Kylie Jenner
Travis Scott (aka: the rapper who got Kylie Jenner pregnant) is the current partner of the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner family. He ended up getting the makeup mogul pregnant after only three months of dating. Not exactly the most romantic love story, is it?
You want to know what else is not romantic? How he talks about himself. Here’s what he said in an interview with the media:
"I’m a master of my own imagination. I go off my own [expletive]. I’m not into deep study- all that, like reading? That’s how [expletive] ends up looking like someone else’s [expletive]. You ever see pictures in your head? I be having that all day. It’s like a museum. That’s why I don’t do too many [narcotics], because my brain would explode. If I bleed and someone licked my blood, it’s like liquid [narcotics] — know what I’m saying?"
Thankfully, I don't.
6 Rashad McCants & Khloé Kardashian
There’s nothing tackier than blaming an ex partner for your misfortune. But I guess Rashad McCants didn’t get that memo. He and Khloé Kardashian dated for only seven months, but apparently that was enough time to “end" his NBA career.
In an interview with the Charlotte Observer, he said his biggest regret in life was dating the reality star when he did, because it made people doubt "his commitment to the NBA."
I mean, what? Khloé is a powerful woman, no arguing there, but is she powerful enough to single handedly end someone's career with only her presence?
Actually, yeah, maybe. It’s still tacky to say so though. And they’ve been apart long enough for him to "get his career back," yet he is still a free agent. What’s your excuse now, Rashad?
5 Gabriel Aubry & Kim Kardashian
Don’t worry if you have no idea who Gabriel Aubry is. Very few people do. His biggest accomplishment? Dating the gorgeous Halle Berry. They were together for five years and have a daughter together. But before that, he dated Kim Kardashian.
Now, here’s why he’s on this list. There is evidence that Aubrey used racial slurs against the mother of his child (which, in turn, could also be used towards the couple's daughter).
When these two were getting a divorce, Halle presented the court with a note where Aubry used that word to describe her. Halle also believes he is trying to ‘erase’ the physical features that make their daughter look African-American — like try to change the texture of her hair and colour.
WHO IS THIS DUDE!?
4 Caitlyn Jenner & Kris Jenner
Kris and Caitlyn were together when Caitlyn still identified as a man and went by Bruce.
These two were together for over 22 years and other than two beautiful girls (Kylie and Kendall), not a lot came out of that relationship. Bruce was pretty much a trophy husband: pretty to look at, but didn’t have a say on, well, anything.
Ironically, that all changed after they divorced and Bruce became Caitlyn. She wrote a tell-all book about her life as a man, which of course included her marriage to Kris. The book was far from flattering for the momager. Anyone who would write a book saying horrible things about someone who they spent over two decades with, belongs on this list.
3 James Harden & Khloé Kardashian
Khloé sure does knows how to pick them!
It honestly seems like every boyfriend she’s ever had has either cheated on her or regretted having dated her. James Harden belongs to the latter group. He has referred to his time with her as “the worst year of my life.”
He told Sports Illustrated, “I feel like it was for no reason. I wasn’t getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don’t need that...”
I mean, no offense to Khloé, but I’m starting to think dating her might be the worst. Can it really be a coincidence that all these men feel like she ruined their life? Then again, the fact that they are blaming a woman for their misfortune is kind of pathetic. So maybe their lack of luck is really on them.
2 Nick Lachey & Kim Kardashian
It wasn’t so much that they dated, but they did go out on one date, after Nick and Jessica Simpson’s divorce was final. Apparently they went to a movie, but it didn’t go as planned. At least not for Nick, who is convinced Kim Kardashian called the paparazzi on them so they could be photographed together.
According to BuzzFeed, he said “Let’s just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside.” Coincidence? We’ll never know.
Nowadays he is happily married, but at the time he found that annoying. So now he tells people he is the reason Kim is famous... To be fair though, no one knew who she was at the time, and dating Nick Lachey was a big deal back then. So yeah, I’m sure that helped.
1 French Montana & Khloé Kardashian
French and Khloé dated right after her split from Lamar Odom, and the relationship was, well, yet another fail. However, this time it was Khloé who didn’t have anything good to say about French, and not the other way around (finally a sort-of-win for Khloé!).
Apparently, it’s not like she had anything against him, but at the time, she was lonely and “in a destructive mood,” so she dated him.
She apparently had an issue with the rapper calling her as much as he did. “There’s highs and lows in every relationship but I have no idea why French calls me 5,000 times a day,” she told her sister Kourtney on their show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Well, maybe he just wanted to know what you were up to! There’s no winning with these women.
