In honor of Flashback Friday, we’re throwing it way back, like, back to when Kylie Jenner looked human and Beyoncé announced she was expecting — the first time. That’s right, 2011 was a phenomenal year that included these lovely memories as well as Kim Kardashian‘s little-known fling with her hunky Australian bodyguard, Shengo Deane. Even his name sounds sexy, right?
Fresh off her divorce from Kris Humphries — let’s be honest, the reason that didn’t last was because Kris Jenner wouldn’t allow another “Kris” into the family — the reality star snuggled up to Shengo on an episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Get to know more about Kimmie’s former flame below!
He married fiancée, Sally Poulos, two months after Kimye’s wedding
In July 2014, the now 37-year-old took to Facebook to post photos with his new wife and captioned the collection of snaps, “Feeling blessed.” So sweet!
Kim and Sally are eerily similar
In an interview with Women’s Day in 2011, he said, “They have the same heart,” before adding that they also look similar. Sally chimed in, “He likes his curvy girls!” Awk. He continued, “They both want the same things in life. They both want a family. They both want to be with a good man.” We wonder how he feels about Kanye!
Kim once described him as “Tall, dark, and has the sexiest Australian accent.”
Can’t say we disagree! Her Down Under bloke hails from Sydney, which is where they initially met. Later, he sent her an email to say hello, and they organized a meet-up in the Big Apple.
Kim and Shengo have a night out at the Empire State Building in New York City on Oct. 25, 2010.
He “wished it could’ve worked”
“She wanted to use me as a bodyguard, but her business manager said that security had already been arranged,” a disappointed Shengo said. “I wish we could’ve worked together, but I understand it could have been completely misconstrued.” Mind you, he said this right in front of Sally!
Basically, he couldn’t keep up
“They are a beautiful family and I enjoyed being part of that, but I didn’t really have a lot of work over there and I didn’t want to have to ask for $50 to go to the movies.”
