Kim Kardashian has a long history of dating men who are famous or who are from a famous family background. The reality star once dated Michael Jackson's nephew, T J Jackson even before she became a famous personality. The pair dated for more than a year and her family approved of the relationship.

However, among the members of Kim's family, there was one in particular who was fond of her choice and it happened to be  Kardashian’s nanny, Pam Behan, who watched the Kardashian kids for five years. Pam recalled the relationship in Reelz Channel’s 'Scandal Made Me Famous'. “I really liked T J,” she said.  “He was kind of on the quiet, shy side, always very nice and polite. A good-looking kid, and as far as I could ever see, he treated Kim with great respect.”

As reported by People, Pam states that Kim and Jackson even visited his uncle’s estate more than once. “I know that she went to the Neverland Ranch with him a time or two,” she recalled. Kim has even opened up about these visits in the past. In an interview with the magazine, she stated, "that was the most magical place on earth." “I had my birthday at Neverland Ranch. Who else can say that?” she added. 

Kim even recalled what it was like to be in that place. “When you drove up there were baby elephants and chimpanzees in overalls, and there were all the rides," she recalled. “It was everything you can possibly imagine. The memories I have of that place will last for the rest of my life.”

Even though Kim had a lot to remember her past for, unfortunately, her relationship did not last long. One could say it was because both of them were still young and figuring out life. However, Pam does believe that the two might have had a future if they decided to reconnect years later. “I honestly thought that they’d get married,” she recalled. “I really did.” While the past is in the past, Kim is currently happily married to Kanye West and the pair are proud parents of three kids, North West, Saint West and Chicago West. 

Kim and Kanye met in 2010 and instantly connected. In April Kanye also made a confession about falling in love with Kim. The rapper hinted that the two fell in love with each other at the same time. Kim opened up about being friends with the rapper for a long but both of them refrained from commenting on the status of their relationship. It wasn't until weeks of rumors that the two confirmed their relationship when they stepped out together in New York City. 

In 2012, Kim revealed on her website that the pair was expecting their first child. A year later the pair got engaged and Kim shared this news with her fans on Instagram. Sharing a big bling on her finger, in the background, one could read the words 'Please Marry Me'.  The two recently celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary
