Kim Kardashian was slammed by her first husband Damon Thomas for dismissing their marriage as a ‘bad’ drug-fueled mistake.
Kim, who was just 19 when she and Damon eloped in Las Vegas in 2000, said on a 2018 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that she was ‘on ecstasy’ at the time of their nuptials.
But in an interview with Vlad TVThomas, 51, said her claims made no ‘sense’ given they stayed married for years.

‘I don’t remember that at all,’ Damon said of the ecstasy claims. ‘That’s her thing about her.’
Damon also said he found it ‘irresponsible’ how she had described their marriage.
‘I think it’s unfair to make those kind of blanket statements because we have kids now. I have children, my kid goes to the same school her kid goes to,’ Damon said.
‘So imagine him when he has to deal with at school. I think that she should be more responsible with those statements ’cause there’s a lot more to that subject and those things.

‘And I could go on to that and blow up the spot but I wouldn’t. And I’ve been very responsible in not talking about what that marriage was and what it meant to me…’
‘Because it happened in the past, you can try to sweep it under the rug but you don’t stay married to somebody or be with somebody for four to five years and it’s just based off of you getting high off of ecstasy, you know ?
‘That doesn’t make any sense at all. So I think that’s a very irresponsible thing to say given our children go to the same school and things like that.’

Though he took issue with the way she characterized their relationship, he did speak highly of his ex.
‘I’m proud of her, I’m proud of her family, I’ve seen Kris, I’ve seen Kris at Kenny’s wedding. We all spoke, when I saw Kris last we were cool. I’ve seen her a couple of times,’ he said.
Kim claimed she was on the psychoactive drug at the time of their nuptials on a 2018 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
‘I got married on ecstasy. … The first time,’ Kim said.

‘I did ecstasy once and I got married. I did it again, I made a sex tape. Like, everything bad would happen [when I was on drugs],’ she also said.
Damon said they decided to elope as Kim was not on speaking terms with her mother Kris Jenner.
‘She wasn’t talking to her parents at the time,’ Thomas said. ‘Or her mom de ella at the time, I think.
‘I mean, it was just young love,’ he added.

Damon, who is 10 years Kim’s senior, married the future reality star in 2000.
Their short-lived marriage lasted only three years before he filed for divorce. Kim later claimed the marriage was quite turbulent as he allegedly subjected her to physical abuse.
The KKW Beauty mogul claimed in divorce papers he ‘punched’ her, to which he has denied.
She also accused him of slamming her against a wall and throwing ‘her across the room, leaving her bruised and battered.’ Additionally, he reportedly made her quit her job, according to their divorce papers filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court back in 2003.

‘It’s just absolutely not true,’ Damon said of the allegations to InTouch in 2010, according to New YorkDaily News.
According to Page Sixtheir marriage lasted from January 2000 to February 2004.
Kim has gone on to remarry since her relationship with Damon ended.
She tied the knot with Kris Humphries in 2011, only to infamously file for divorce 72 days later.
The reality star married Kanye West in 2014, but after more than six years of marriage and four children together, filed for divorce from him in 2021. She was declared legally single earlier this year.
