Is the Kardashian kurse to blame? Even a superstar like Kanye seems to have fallen after hooking up with wife Kim.

But Kanye isn't the only man to be brought down by a Kardashian.

"She emasculated and humiliated him at every turn," said a source. "He was miserable and embarrassed to be treated like a child." And no one could see what was coming next: After leaving his wife of more than two decades, Bruce underwent a colossal transformation to become a woman, now known as Caitlyn.
