10 Kardashian Sister Boyfriends And Husbands Whose Lives Were Supposedly Ruined By The Kardashian Curse

The Kardashian Curse and the men they hexed with it

According to Kylie Jenner, the Kardashian Curse is described as when a male figure “dates a Kardashian and their life kind of just goes downhill after that.”

Sounds terrible and a little unrealistic, right? But if you look into the sisters’ dating history, you’ll find a fairly lengthy list of supposedly cursed men whose lives have only got worse after dating a Kardashian.

It all started in 2000 when Kim dated Reggie Bush.

Even if you don’t believe in curses, there is some evidence to support this theory. From sports statistics to career plummets, these high-profile men’s lives have been plagued with bad luck once they became involved with the Kardashian family.

Here’s a list of the Kardashians’ ex-beaus who were affected by the dreaded Kardashian Curse:

1. Reggie Bush, Kim Kardashian Ex-Boyfriend (Dated 2007 - 2009)

NFL star Reggie Bush won the Heisman Trophy and was doing great in his football career — until he got involved with Kim.

They dated for two years and after they called it quits, the world saw the curse’s effect for the first time: His stats in the NFL declined and he became the very first running back to retire with negative yardage in NFL history. 

2. Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian Ex-Husband (Married 2009 - 2016)

Odom, a former NBA Lakers star who was named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2011, wifed up Khloe in 2009 but has only really spiraled downward since their divorce.

During and after the couple’s short marriage, he admitted having been using drugs and cheating on Khloe. Odom was found in a coma due to drugs in October 2015 and nearly died. He suffered 12 strokes and had two heart attacks, according to USMagazine.

He’s also not in the NBA anymore.

3. Ray J. Norwood,  Kim Kardashian Ex-Boyfriend (Dated 2006)

The sex tape made by Kim K. and singer Ray J leaked in 2007 and basically made them both famous, but Ray J’s career didn’t last long. He liked to bring up the fact that he hit it first, and people grew tired of it pretty quickly.

Their relationship ended and so did his career. The last thing he was known for doing was appearing on Celebrity Big Brother this year where he left the show after a week after threatening legal action. 

4. Tyga, Kylie Jenner Ex-Boyfriend (Dated 2014 - 2107)

Rapper Tyga started dating Kylie Jenner in 2014, before she was even 18, and is still getting mocked for their age difference. But right after the two parted ways, Kylie started Travis Scott and is rumored to be pregnant. 

After their breakup, the poor guy took a very low blow from the makeup guru, got robbed by Birdman and got called out for lying about where he is from.

5. Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian Ex-Boyfriend (2006 - 2017)

The hilarious father of Kourtney’s three kids fell victim to the curse and fell hard once he got together with Kourt in 2006.

Disick struggled with addiction on and off during and after the two were together. He also lost both of his parents within a few months. He actually went to a psychic to determine if the curse was real and she basically told him yes.

During a KUWTK episode in 2016, the psychic told Disick a negative energy “is following you around.” She went on to say, “Everything that you try to do, you have a tendency to have many obstacles in front of you. To answer your question, I would probably say you do have a curse."

6. Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian boyfriend (Dated 2016 - now)

Another NBA star on Khloe’s list has suffered at the hands of the Kardashian curse. After starting dating Khloe in 2016, The Cleveland Cavalier hasn't been doing too hot.

Thompson scored ZERO points in two games during the NBA Finals and ended up losing.

“There are three things in life that are certain to me: Father Time, gravity, and the curse of the Kardashians,” said ESPN analyst Jalen Rose.

They are still together and are rumored to be expecting a baby, but he’s still being affected by the curse on the court.

7. Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian Ex-Husband (Married for 72 days in 2011)

The man was married to Kim for 72 days in 2001 and quickly became the topic of many, many jokes. A basketball player, Humphries played for the Atlanta Hawks until signing with the Philadelphia 76s this year. But they waived him after he played just three preseason games. 

8. Rashad McCants, Khloe Kardashian Ex-Boyfriend (Dated 2008 - 2009)

McCants is another basketball star whose career was flipped by a Kardashian.

He played for the Minnesota Timberwolves while keeping up with Khloe. He blames her for his career not taking off, saying if he wasn't dating Khloe he could have been a “$60 (million to) $70 million player. Easily."

9. Damon Thomas, Kim Kardashian Ex-Husband (Married 2000 - 2004)

Kim married Thomas, a member of the music group The Underdogs. Clearly, the curse must be real because you are probably wondering who Damon Thomas is in the first place.

The two married in 2000 and divorced in 2004 after Kim accused him of physical and verbal abuse.

He went bankrupt and accumulated a whopping $4 million debt.

10. James Harden, Khloe Kardashian Ex-Boyfriend (Dated 2015 - 2016)

Khloe seems to be the one with the most NBA exes who played badly during or after their relationship.

James Harden plays for the Houston Rockets and blamed his relationship with Khloe for his terrible performance on the court. The two dated for eight months in 2015 and Harden referred to it at “the worst year of my life” as his team’s standings got lower and lower.
