Dating American socialite Kim Kardashian is not everybody’s cup of tea. The influencer and model, being a crush of several people over the years simply dated a few men from the entertainment industry. Nick Cannon was one of the few who had a short-lived relationship with Kim Kardashian during her initial years of fame. The two dated for a while during the early 2000s until things turned upside down.
It was revealed that the SKIMS founder’s s*x tape was evidently a reason for Cannon and Kardashian’s breakup. Although the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wasn’t as famous then as she is today, her relationship with the TV host ended for good. The Misfits actor further went on to marry Mariah Carey after his breakup with Kardashian.

After dating the influencer Kim Kardashian, for a short period from late 2006 to early 2007, Nick Cannon pondered their breakup. He recalled people calling their relationship unhealthy and bad after Kardashian’s s*x tape with Ray J went public within a few months of them dating. Although he believed the tape was made way before he started dating Kardashian, it served them badly in the public eye.
“I think that tape was an older tape, but it looks to the public, it was Nick and then it was the tape,” Cannon recalled. Somehow, he believed the model’s s*x tape created a bad reputation in public which forced him to break up with her.
“If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down…But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape…This was my issue.”
Nick Cannon confessed to Howard Stern in 2012 that the tape and Kardashian’s dishonesty played a major role in their breakup.
