Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has suffered brutal beatings by her ex-husband Damon Thomas, according to newly-published court documents.
When Kim was 19-year-old she eloped and married music producer Damon Thomas in January 2000. But the marriage ended three years later after Kim was allegedly held prisoner.
America's Star magazine obtained the 2003 court documents in which Kim claims Damon would punch her in the face, slam her against walls and throw her across the room.
The alleged bullying was so terrible that he gave her $3,650 to get liposuction because he wanted her to be 'perfect'.
"Before we left our home, Damon hit me in the face and cut my lip open. I fell into the bed frame and banged my knee hard. I was limping when we went skydiving," thesun.co.uk quoted her as saying.
"He threatened to kill me, my family members and the guys that I am dating."
But that wasn't the only threat against her life, he repeated it at least 12 times. "At this point, I am frightened by the stories that are repeated to me."
Thomas has denied all accusations.
