It’s nearly impossible to turn on your television, read a magazine, or surf the internet without coming across a picture or story about Kim Kardashian. There are very few celebrities that have been able to get themselves noticed on such a grand scale. She’s no bimbo. Kim and her inner circle have orchestrated her stardom right from the beginning and it has paid off. She is worth millions of dollars and she has earned all that money in a variety of ways. Aside from her various reality television ventures, Kim makes money through her many businesses, endorsements, and personal appearances. She has even been raking it in with her Kim Kardashian: Hollywood video game in which players try to increase their fame and reputation.
It goes without saying that Kim Kardashian has also been at the center of a few scandals. She has a pretty promiscuous past that includes intimate relationships with a large number of men. Her 2014 marriage to Kanye West is her third. Kanye must have a hard time dealing Kim’s past. The loose lifestyle and all of the drama would be a challenge for any dude. It doesn’t help that all sorts of pictures of Kim are on the internet for everyone to see. Here are 15 Kim Kardashian photos Kanye wants to forget.
15 Kim’s Epic Crying Fit
If there’s one thing that Kim Kardashian knows how to do in front of a camera it’s crying. OK, maybe there’s a couple of things she’s good at doing in front of the camera but we need to keep this clean. During the season finale of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Kim broke down in tears as she came to terms with the end of her marriage to Kris Humphries. It was a fine piece of drama in which she claimed she was “going crazy” and that she wasn’t happy anymore. She was in such despair that her sister Khloe had to remind Kim to breathe. Oh, the humanity!! Luckily, Kim managed to overcome the panic attacks and Kourtney’s cruel indifference to put the episode behind her. She also left us with one of the most meme-worthy photos of all time.
14 The Big Star
Sporting a tight-fitting green dress and matching stilettos, the pregnant reality star was photographed entering the studio to tend to her television show. It was quite a hectic time for Kim as she was dealing with her divorce from Kris Humphries, being apart from her boyfriend Kanye, and all the other dramatics that are a regular part of her daily life.
It is hard to believe that Kim ever looked so “beefy” but pregnancy will do that. It’s also hard to believe that those heels were able to support all of that weight. She’s still a pretty good looking lady though. We're sure Kanye was also going to make sure he wasn't the one saying any inappropriate comments about Kim, especially as she got closer to giving birth! We're sure if Kim gets pregnant again in the future that her fashion will once again become a big topic of debate.
What in the world is going on here? Is something stuck in there? Did Kim sit on a wad of chewing gum? It turns out that Kim doesn’t just put makeup on her face. She actually had makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic apply some bronzer to her legs and thighs before attending the MTV Video Music Awards. Kim was thrilled with her bronzed look as she hit the red carpet in her vintage black Galliano dress and Manolo Blahnik heels. Kanye also looked pleased with his wife’s appearance judging by the photos that were taken of the two during the awards ceremony. Does Kanye have any idea what goes on in Kim’s dressing room? He would probably prefer to not think about it but this picture acts as a pretty good reminder.
12 Plain Jane
Here is another rare photo of Kim Kardashian looking far from her glamorous best. It should be noted that her most unattractive look isn’t too bad at all. We’re not certain where this picture was taken but it is probably safe to say that Kim wasn’t expecting to see cameras or she would have at least put on a bit of makeup. It’s plain as day that her complexion is far from perfect and she is a completely different looking person in reality. She would need to do a lot of photoshopping to make this picture less embarrassing. One thing is certain and that is Kim without makeup looks a heck of a lot better than Khloe without makeup. We’ll call it a draw between Kim and Kourtney without makeup.
11 Keeping Up With Reggie
Football star Reggie Bush dated Kim Kardashian between 2007 and 2010 but they initially kept the relationship under wraps. It was out in the open when the two hosted a New Year’s party. It looks like it was a pretty good party too. There are several pictures of the two cozying up to each other including this picture that must make Kanye’s blood boil. Notice the look on Khloe’s face as she looks on from the background. Kim doesn’t seem to care as she appears to be having the time of her life. The relationship must have had an effect on the Saints’ running back too as he elevated his game and helped New Orleans win their first and only Super Bowl title. Rumor has it that Bush’s family wasn’t too impressed that he was dating a Kardashian.
As with most women, Kim’s physical appearance during pregnancy is astonishingly different from the way she looks in so many of her other pictures. Kim took to her website to complain that she felt “fat as f**k and my cankles are out of control”. One can’t help but notice her cankles in this photo. The straps of her shoes look like they might be a little snug and her toes even appear to be swollen. She also informed her followers that she had constant cravings for potato chips and that she was terribly stressed out over finding a good name for her baby. Yeah, North is the perfect name!! You’ve got to give her a bit of credit. Kim has definitely shown the ability to bounce back into shape after the birthing process.
9 The Real Kim
For a reality star, Kim doesn’t often show us much of what is real about her. She’s had several plastic surgeries including breast enhancement, rhinoplasty, and butt implants. She is almost always heavily made up and her hair is usually perfect. You could be forgiven for thinking that Kanye wakes up next to the epitome of beauty every morning but this picture is probably closer to the truth of what Kanye actually wakes up next to. It is rare that we see Kim Kardashian with unkempt hair, blemished skin, and a generally disheveled look. It is a far cry from the glamorous and sometimes photoshopped images that she is so famous for. The weird thing is that we can see some true natural beauty despite the fact that she is not made up.
It looks as if Kanye might have been sitting on Kim’s face while she was tanning on the beach but that is apparently not the case. It seems that the ‘fake ski tan’ is one of those inexplicable fashion trends that is sweeping the world. At least in those parts of the world that have skiing. Trendy women enter the tanning booth with nothing on except for ski goggles and emerge a while later with this baffling look. Those that are too busy to spend time in a tanning booth can use a spray-on tan to achieve the same effect. You really can’t make stuff like this up. Kim may have claimed to have fallen asleep in the sun with shades on but if you believe that then you might be interested in some swampland that’s for sale in Florida.
7 Dancing With The Stars
In 2008, Kim Kardashian was a contestant on the television series Dancing with the Stars. She was partnered with Mark Ballas who has some pretty smooth moves on the dance floor. In this photo, Mark and Kim are showing the judges what they’ve got as Kim shakes her booty and Mark appears to be eagerly reciprocating. Once again, this is one of those photos that surely drives Kanye nuts. Unfortunately, Kim and Mark were eliminated in the third round having scored some of the lowest totals in every round. Among the celebrity competitors that they lost out to were Rocco DiSpirito, Cloris Leachman, Lance Bass, and ex-NFLer Warren Sapp. At least they beat out Ted McGinley and Jeffrey Ross. Brooke Burke and Derek Hough ended up winning after putting on a series of impressive displays.
6 Feeling Kimmy
This picture is one that Kanye, Kim, and pretty much the rest of the world would like to forget. It’s hard to tell if she is mad, about to cry, sitting on a thumb tack, or tripping on ecstasy. Maybe she’s just happy. After all, she should be. She makes tons of money for personal appearances like the time she netted a cool $700,000 to show up at a party that was being held in the Hamptons. She also gets paid staggering amounts of dough for sponsored Instagram posts and you don’t even want to know what she makes through her television show. That could also be a bit of a sore spot for Kanye as it has been recently reported that he has been facing some financial difficulties. Well, the type of financial difficulties that filthy rich people have. Which is a little different from the average guy's money problems.
5 Rompin’ With Ray J.
Kim dated musician Ray J. between 2003 and 2006. Kanye would love to see this portion of history permanently erased from the public’s mind as well as his own. It’s not just the thought of Kim having an intimate relationship with Ray J. that causes Kanye a bit of stress but the fact that the two made that infamous sex tape. Of course, pretty much everything Kim does is calculated and it has been said that Kim planned the leak of the tape all along as a way to boost her celebrity status. Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered shortly after the tape’s release. Ray J. has also done pretty well since the tape was released. He still rakes in thousands of dollars every month from the video’s sales. It has been claimed that the tape has grossed over $50 million.
4 Canoodling With Cannon
There’s no doubt that Kim Kardashian has dated her fair share of guys but one of her exes, Nick Cannon, has built a pretty outrageous dating resume too. Nicole Scherzinger, Christina Milian, Rachel Smith, Mariah Carey, and Chilli from TLC are just scratching the surface of the musician’s conquests. In fact, Cannon claims to have gotten it on with Kourtney and Khloe too. Yikes!! Kardashian and Cannon were an item in 2006 and 2007. It would bother most guys to know that someone else had their best gal in their prime years and Kanye can’t be much different in that regard. Cannon and Kardashian look pretty happy in this Kim Kardashian photo Kanye wants to forget. If the rumors of Cannon and Kim’s sisters are true then Kim might want to forget about this picture too.
3 Flour Power
Here’s a picture that Kim and Kanye would both like to forget. Kim was very embarrassed in 2012 when she was attending the launch of her new perfume line, True Reflection in West Hollywood. Accompanied by Kris Jenner, Kim arrived at the event wearing a black jacket and leather pants when a woman approached her from behind and covered Kardashian with flour while calling her a “fur hag”. The unidentified animal rights supporter tried to flee but was promptly arrested and taken to the police station. As for Kim, after the fire department had determined that the white powder was just flour, she dusted herself off and returned to the event. She even joked about the incident. Kim decided that she wouldn’t press any charges against the assailant who was released from custody.
2 Carousing With Copon
Tongues were wagging back in 2010 when it appeared that Michael Copon, who played the blue Power Ranger, was dating the co-star of Kourtney and Kim Take New York. The rumors turned out to be false. She happened to run into Copon during a night on the town with Kourtney. Copon played it cool and it was actually Kim who later called and asked him on a date. It looked like the two had an enjoyable evening together but it must have been a little awkward for Michael at the end of the night when he moved in for a kiss. Kim pushed him away but finally allowed him to give her a peck on the cheek. This is one of those rare times that Kim played hard to get and acted like a dignified lady.
1 Kissing Kris
Kanye probably doesn’t like to be reminded that there were a few dozen guys in Kim’s life before they got married. Kris Humphries was one such guy. Kardashian and the NBA star dated and quickly got married in the midst of a wild media frenzy. The marriage lasted just 72 days before Kim filed for divorce. There was a lot of speculation that the union was just a publicity stunt engineered to promote the family name and television shows as well as generating money. The divorce got as much attention as the marriage did. If it was all a ruse then it was quite successful but Kardashian vehemently denies those allegations.
