Some of Damon Thomas’ first production and songwriting engagements include cooperation with R&B producer Kenneth Edmonds, called Babyface, on hit singles These are the Times, performed by Dru Hill as well as Pink’s Most Girls. These involvements provided the basis for Damon Thomas net worth, which at some point in time was apparently $45 million.

In 1999, Damon Thomas teamed up with drummer Harvey Mason, Jr. and they formed The Underdogs, an R&B/pop recording and production duo. Their breakthrough came with a production of Tyrese’s hit single I Like Them Girls, and since then, they have managed to keep up a continuous string of production work which includes collaborations with numerous music stars such as, apart from those already mentioned, Omarion, Donell Jones, R. Kelly, JoJo as well as Chris Brown, Olivia Munn and Ruben Studdard. All these engagements have helped Damon Thomas to establish himself as a competitive music producer, and certainly increase his overall net worth.

Some other notable work of Damon Thomas and his partner also include production work on the soundtrack of the 2006 Broadway musical film adaptation, “Dreamgirls” with  Beyoncé Knowles, Jennifer Hudson, Jamie Foxx and Eddie Murphy in the leading roles. In the same year, The Underdogs duo had also produced the song “Never Gonna Break My Faith”, performed by Aretha Franklin and Mary J. Blige, as a part of the original soundtrack of “Bobby” – historical drama directed by Emilio Estevez with Anthony Hopkins, Sharon Stone and Demi Moore in the main roles. It is certain that all these involvements have helped Damon Thomas to add a significant sum to the total size of his net worth.

The most recent of Damon Thomas’ engagements include music arrangement for the 2015 biographical drama, “Straight Outta Compton”, a story of the group NWA which revolutionized the mid-1980s hip-hop culture. For all the achievements mentioned above, Damon Thomas has been nominated for a Grammy Award as well as with a Black Reel Award in 2011.

When it comes to his personal life, Damon Thomas married Kim Kardashian in 2000, when she was just 20 years old. After four years of marriage, she filed for divorce on the alleged basis of emotional and physical abuse accusations, but Damon’s counter-accusations were that Kim is a ‘plastic surgery-loving ‘fame whore’ – unsuprisingly, the couple split in 2004. In 2010, a former maid of the couple sued both of them for not paying her rendered services.

In 2012, Damon Thomas filed for bankruptcy, as his respectable net worth of $45 million had been reduced to just $1 million.
