Although she did love her ex, Kardashian West said ecstasy played a significant role in her decision. The reality star, who says she doesn’t drink alcohol, said she only took ecstasy two times in her life, which had negative consequences. The mother of four was also under the influence when she made her 2007 sex tape with her ex-boyfriend, Ray J.

“I did ecstasy once and I got married,” she said. “I did it again, I made a sex tape. Like, everything bad would happen.”

“He would not allow me to go to the mall alone or with friends. He told me that he did not want men to have an opportunity to “hit” on me,” Kardashian West said. “He would not allow me to go out to dinner with friends I have known since I was a child. If Damon were not home, I was required to call him and ask permission to leave the house.’’
