Ah, the Kardashians. What is it about these women that has the world salivating, or gagging, depending on who you talk to? Whether you love or hate the Kardashian clan, there’s no denying that they’ve absolutely made their mark in pop culture. From relationships and marriages, to children and business ventures, you probably can’t go a day or two without hearing something about the Kardashians in the media.
If nothing else, you’ve got to admit that, for the most part, the Kardashians work as a unit. They come across as a close family, and want to make sure that everyone has just enough money and exposure to keep the family in the media on a constant basis. You also have to admit that the Kardashians have pretty exciting lives, from the looks of things. After all, when you’re able to help deliver your own baby on camera like Kourtney did, or you find out your husband wants to be a woman like Kris did, you’ve got to admit that your life is eventful if nothing else.
It’s also hard to ignore the fact that some of the men who have gotten involved with the Kardashians haven’t quite been the same since. That’s not always a good thing. Here are 10 men who have been destroyed by the Kardashians.
10 Kris Humphries
Remember that basketball player Kris Humphries was married to Kim Kardashian for 72 days? The couple tied the knot in 2011, and through reality show footage, it appears that Kim was determined to get married, even though many of her loved ones were skeptical. Some say that Kardashian went through with the wedding because of the endorsements she was receiving, and the revenue she’d get from televising the wedding. While this may or may not be completely true, we haven’t seen Humphries with a new woman on his arm. Can you blame him? The Washington Wizards power forward is probably not willing to go public with another relationship after that whole Kardashian debacle.
9 Brody Jenner
Rapper Tyga has recently been romantically linked to Kylie Jenner. This doesn’t seem like a big deal, but Jenner is not 18 yet and Tyga is in his mid twenties. The rapper also has a child with his former fiancé Blac Chyna, who is friends with Kim Kardashian. So, a lot of people are assuming that Kim has had a hand in getting Kylie and Tyga together for quite some time now. It’s messy, to say the least. The Kardashians have a way of driving people nuts or making sure they never work in Hollywood again. Sometimes, men who have been linked to the Kardashians have been cursed with both a bad reputation and compromised sanity. It’s probably best for Tyga to get out while he can.
7 Jaden Smith
6 Rob Kardashian
That’s right. The brother in the Kardashian family is pretty fed up with all the shenanigans the family is involved in. Rob has stated that he feels his sisters behave selfishly sometimes, and that no one has truly helped him to get his career off the ground. He started a line of dress socks with a friend, but still hasn’t achieved fame at the same level as his popular siblings. The stresses of being a Kardashian have also taken a toll on Rob in recent years. He’s gained lots of weight, and has refused to show up at certain family vacations and events. Even Rob’s love life has taken a turn for the worst. He was most recently connected to singer Rita Ora, but she broke up with him, stating that he wasn’t able to “satisfy” her. He also accused her of being promiscuous. Looks like it’s just one more thing in Rob’s life that didn’t go as planned.
5 Ray J
4 Kanye West
3 Scott Disick
2 Lamar Odom
1 Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner
The former Bruce Jenner, who is now known as Caitlyn, recently underwent gender reassignment surgery. This was after years of trying to be comfortable and feel normal as a man. Some say that his marriage to Kris Jenner is what made him make the final decision to become a woman. The media has portrayed her as demanding and extremely emasculating. Maybe her attitude towards Bruce had to do with the fact that she felt deceived. Bruce’s other ex-wives also admit that he’s wanted to be a woman for some time, but never thought it was the right time to make the transition. Some would also attest to the notion that Caitlyn has become obsessed with the spotlight since starring in the hit reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Jenner’s transition into a woman was one of the most publicized Kardashian-related events we’ve seen in a while, and maybe that’s what she was going for. Maybe it’s a sign that Caitlyn has officially been ruined by the Kardashians.
