The television actress also stated that he was actually acting as if he is the king of the castle and would always decide everything. She also claimed how Damon was the one who convinced her to drop out of college and quit her job at the Kardashian clothing store.
However, in an interview with the New York Daily News, Damon made contrary statements to that. He told the media portal back then in 2010 that it was Damon who had filed for divorce from Kim. furthermore, the producer also stated that after filing for divorce he got to know that Kim was cheating him with many other men. Damon also said that he was conned with paying money for all the cosmetic surgeries.
In fact, Thomas was the one who publicly shared with Touch Magazine to criticize her wife. He said in his statement: “Kim is obsessed with fame,” he said. “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.”

In a statement, Kim shared: “Damon told me not to leave the house unless I first told him when and where I was going,”. “If Damon were not home, I was required to call him and ask permission to leave the house.” “For example, he would not allow me to go to the mall alone, or with friends. He told me that he did not want men to have an opportunity to ‘hit’ on me.”
He Was Physically Abusive
The controlling behavior of Thomas was not the last thing Kim tolerated, he was also physically abusive towards her. According to a media portal, Damon would just punch her in the face or he would slam her on the walls leaving her bruised in the room. Even after the duo got separated, Thomas actually continued the abusive behavior towards Kim. In an interview, Kardashian remembered that once he retrieved some items from their house and all of a sudden came on Kim and slammed her against the closet wall.
