The X Factor producers are REALLY going for the Kardashian drama now. It was recently announced that Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez were cast as cohosts for the live show beginning in November, and now Radar Online reports that Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband Damon Thomas, who has been brutal to Kim in the press, will also be joining the show as a mentor!
Kim eloped with music producer Damon (who’s reported to be worth $45 million) in 2000, and they were married for four years.
In interviews he basically said that Kim would do anything to get attention (not exactly a newsflash,) while her divorce documents reveal her accusations that he physically abused her, and pressured her into to getting liposuction.
The documents leaked in 2010, and Kim was quoted as saying “He became enraged and punched me in the face. My face was bruised and swollen as a result. I thought about calling the police but was afraid and decided not to do so.”
Damon denied these allegations to In Touch, saying “It’s just absolutely not true.”
Whether or not the allegations are true, this sounds like a bitter divorce, and Khloe surely can’t be pleased with having to work with him now. Do you think this family drama will make for good X Factor viewing? Isn’t this show supposed to be about singing?
