Nick dated Kim in 2006 following her split from Ray J, and he explained that their romance fizzled out following the then-rumours of the exes’ sex tape.

The 40-year-old comedian said that Kim denied having made a sex tape with Ray J, causing a hiccup in their relationship.

Nick said: “I believe Ray J knew her before I did. I was really into her, I was vibing. We were on some serious sh*t.”

Going on to explain he was heartbroken over their split, he continued: “She broke my heart. Then, it started being these rumours going around that it was this tape.

“When I asked her about it, she denied it. I knew that they messed with each other. I never watched the tape.

“I just knew at that time, all my team was like, ‘Abort mission.'”

Nick has previously told The Howard Stern Show that the downfall of their relationship came after the reality TV star ‘lied’ about the tape.

However, the pair appear to have no bad blood as he has described the SKIMS owner as ‘one of the nicest people’ since their split.

Kim, who filed for divorce from Kanye West earlier this year, now has four children with the Yeezy star.

Meanwhile, Nick, who was married to Mariah Carey for eight years, shares twin children with the pop star and has since welcomed five children with three different women.
