Puppy love! Kardashian and T.J. Jackson, whose father is Michael Jackson's brother, Tito Jackson, reportedly dated as teenagers. The two were photographed together in what appeared to be a yearbook picture. Recently, Jackson re-emerged in the media when he began to help his grandmother, Katherine Jackson, take care of his cousins Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson -- the late Michael Jackson's children.

While working as a stylist for Brandy Norwood in 2004, Kardashian began dating the singer's brother, Ray J. In 2007, after the couple split, reports that the two made a sex tape surfaced. "A tape does exist," she confirmed to "Extra." "Whatever we did was our personal business. ... I hope that it remains private." It didn't, but she reportedly made millions after suing the video's distributor, Vivid Entertainment.

Reggie Bush

Later in 2007, Kardashian began dating NFL star Reggie Bush. "I'm not really a sports girl," she told the The Associated Press at the time. "But I sit with all the wives and they know everything and I don't, so they are teaching me, and I'm learning a lot about it, so I'm loving it." Though the two were talking marriage at one point, they split for good in 2010.

After she and Bush split, Kardashian began dating NFL player Dallas Austin in June 2010. However, three months later, the two broke up. "There's no huge reason except their distance apart," a source told People. "With his season and Kim's filming ["Keeping Up with the Kardashians"] it just slowly split them apart."
