13 Men Whose Lives Were Ruined By the Kardashians

by at .  Updated at .

Man alive. The Kardashians sure do a number on dudes.

Don't believe us? Just ask this group of nine, whose lives were never the same after the Kardashian and Jenner women finished with them.

Yes, they all landed on this list for different reasons, and no, we're not blaming Khloe & Kompany for people OD'ing in Vegas brothels.

Still, one cannot escape the Kardashian konnection.

Scroll through this list of men whose existences have been forever alerted since they came into contact with this family, and be amazed.

Kanye can probably handle it. The rest of them?

1. Lamar Odom

Was Lamar Odom's downward spiral triggered in part by his uneasiness with fame? And how his life continued to play out in the tabloids and on the E! show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, even after he and Khloe split up? We may never know for sure, but as he battles for his life and his prognosis looks ever more grim, the Kardashians' role in this sad saga is sure to be hotly debated and heavily scrutinized.

3. Jordan Clarkson

Jordan Clarkson
Clarkson was the starting point guard for the Lakers when he started dating Kendall. But now he's a fringe rotation player and Los Angeles just drafted Lonzo Ball as their playmaker of the future.

4. Scott Disick

Scott Disick
Now in rehab for at least the sixth time, Scott Disick has been a party animal for years and can't avoid his share of the blame for his own choices in life. Who cheats on the mother of their children and chooses alcohol over one's kids? Still, his issues with the spotlight undoubtedly led to many of the demons he's struggled with, and eventually caused him to snap.

5. Kris Humphries

Remember Kim Kardashian's second husband Kris Humphries? The one she was married to for 72 whole days? Yeah, his NBA career flamed out almost as quickly as their marriage. Having been involved in the conversation for most improved player in pro basketball, he soon became involved in one of the most ridiculous celebrity breakups of all time ... then faded into obscurity where he belongs.

6. Brody Jenner

Brody Jenner's life is pretty damn amazing, and he'll tell you as much, but at the same time, he's been anti-Kardashian long before it was cool. Brody maintains a close relationship with father Caitlyn, as well as his biological half sisters Kendall and Kylie. But he's publicly feuded with Kim, openly dislikes former stepmom Kris, and for the love of Pete, he's had to LIVE with all of these people!

7. Ray J

The man, the myth, the amateur porn who Hit It First has made a lot of money off of his X-rated rail-a-thon, and yet it probably hampered whatever chance he had of becoming a legitimate star in his own right. Ah, the duality of riding Kim Kardashian from behind while filming it. A paradox, if you will.

8. Rob Kardashian

As the only son in a house with five sisters, the deck was stacked against Rob Kardashian from the start. He tried and failed at making socks. He was funny on Keeping Up. He went on Dancing with the Stars. Things were going okay for awhile, as he became inseparable from Khloe and her husband, Lamar Odom. But after those two split up, he went off the rails, bailed on Kim's wedding, put on a TON of weight, started shading his family on social media, and generally turning into a recluse. Sad.

9. O.J. Simpson

This one is a stretch to be sure, but get this: Kris Jenner claims that O.J. Simpson's wife, Nicole Brown Simpson called her and tried to meet with her on the day O.J didn't not murder her. Claiming she was too busy to get together, Kris took a rain check until the following day. By then, Nicole was dead, O.J. was acting shady, and Robert Kardashian Sr. was trying to talk him out of offing himself in Kim's bedroom. If that's not a cursed family, we don't know what is.

10. Tyga

Yes, these two are happy and blissfully (and barely legally) in love now ... but if anyone thinks Tyga and Kylie Jenner aren't going to crash and burn - taking his career down in the process - you obviously don't follow this family too closely. Dude already shows signs of cracking under the pressure ... and constant needling from Blac Chyna isn't helping matters.

12. Travis Scott

Travis Scott
He wasn't all that popular even before dating Kylie Jenner. But then he got accused of cheating on her many times and his reputation took a major hit.

13. Kanye West

Kanye West
Okay, "ruined" may be a harsh word to use here. Kanye and Kim do have two gorgeous kids together. But the guy suffered a mental breakdown while married to Kardashian and hasn't put out a platinum record since tying the knot.
