Court papers reveal Kim Kardashians's claims about her first husband Damon Thomas
She’s amassed a multi-million-pound empire and finally has the family she’s longed for, expecting her second child with third husband Kanye West but according to court papers, life hasn’t always been so sweet for Kim Kardashian.
As Now recently reported, Kim’s currently at her wits’ end after it emerged an alleged sex tape of her with first husband Damon Thomas is set to be leaked. But according to Kim, 34, that’s far from the only thing about the marriage she’d want to put behind her.
Kim who eloped at 19 to marry music producer Damon in Las Vegas in 2000 claimed in court papers that he beat her and demanded to know her every move during the marriage. She claims he punched her in the face, slammed her against walls and threw her across the rooms of their house, leaving her bruised and battered. Damon has emphatically denied the claims of domestic abuse, citing her version of events as ‘just absolutely not true’.
Kim also alleges that Damon, 44, who’s worked with the likes of Lionel Richie and Pink, forced her to quit college, tried to poison her mind against her family and wouldn’t let her see friends.
She stated in her court report: ‘Damon told me not to leave the house unless I first told him when and where I was going. Sometimes he wouldn’t allow me to leave… He wouldn’t allow me to go out for dinner with friends I’ve known since I was a child if he wasn’t at home. I was required to call him and ask permission to leave the house.’
Damon insists none of this is true, claiming in an interview: ‘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.’
According to Kim, Damon wanted her at his beck and call, demanding she cook for him at 4.30am when he’d arrive home from the recording studio.
She claimed he’d start rows at family gatherings and tried to convince her that her mother Kris Jenner and sisters were ‘evil’. Kim even claims he showed naked pictures of one of her sisters to her late father Robert, branding the siblings ‘whores’.
It’s alleged in court documents that Damon’s violent streak began soon after the couple tied the knot. Kim claims that, just before they went skydiving with Justin Timberlake, Damon hit her in the face, cutting open her lip and causing her to fall to the floor. Kim said: ‘I fell into the bed frame and banged my knee hard. I was limping when we went skydiving.’
Another incident allegedly took place at Kris’s house when Damon apparently became suspicious about who Kim was paging. ‘He became enraged and punched me in the face. My face was bruised and swollen as a result,’ claimed Kim. ‘I thought about calling the police, but was afraid and decided not to do so. On another occasion we were at the marital residence and had an argument. He grabbed my arm and slammed me against the mirror of the bedroom closet.’
Kim claims that the abuse continued after they separated in 2003, when she was retrieving personal items from the bathroom of their house. She said: ‘He came at me and slammed me against the closet wall. He held me up against the wall with his hands around my neck and threatened to choke me…He put one hand against my back and pushed me up the stairs. At the top, he threw me across the room and I hit my head against the front door. I got up and ran out of the house. I was frightened.’
The marriage was officially dissolved in February 2004. Kim never filed for a restraining order and Damon insists she accused him of abuse in order to get ‘a lot of money’ out of him. He also claims he filed for divorce because she was cheating on him with ‘multiple guys’ which Kim
Damon claimed: ‘I saw my wife with another man, wearing the clothes that we’d just bought after her lipo. It was not something as a husband you ever wanted to see.’
