Kim Kardashian will have to pay $7 million to make Kris Humphries go away

Over the past month or so, Life & Style has been running lots of stories about Kris Humphries legal strategy in his ongoing divorce proceedings with Kim Kardashian. I tend to think that Kris (or his lawyer) is leaking information and strategies to Life & Style, because some of these pieces are very suspicious. One of the last stories I talked about was something about Kris wanting to “legally destroy” Kim in court when she was compelled to give testimony about the state of their 72-day marriage. Basically, it seems like Kris wants to say that their marriage was a fraud from the beginning, and as such, the prenup should be null and void. Which leaves Kim open for being forced to give Kris a larger divorce settlement, I guess. I don’t really understand all of the machinations, honestly, but I’m really not paring that much attention. Anyway, TMZ had a new report this weekend which claimed that Kris’s price for simply walking out of Kim’s life is now $7 million.

Kris Humphries is secretly demanding $7 MILLION from Kim Kardashian to walk away from their marriage … TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected to Kris tell TMZ … the bballer — through his Minnesota lawyer — has given Kim an ultimatum … either pay up, or endure an ugly, public trial.

Our sources say Kris and his lawyer have been told to pound sand, and with good reason.

For starters, even if there wasn’t a prenup, the marriage lasted a grand total of 72 days, so the community property wouldn’t be in the universe of $7 mil.

Second, there was an iron-clad prenup, which provided that Kim owes Kris zilch.

Third, Kris actually MADE MONEY from the marriage. Sources tell us … Kris raked in around $1 mil from the wedding and the TV special that showcased the nuptials. And Kris made off like a bandit because Kim ended up using a portion of what she got to pay for the ring.

In addition, we’re told Kris made somewhere between $250,000 and $300,000 from the Kardashian reality show.

Looks like the Bank of Kardashian is officially closed.

Is it just me, or does $7 million sound like a cheap payoff for the Kardashians? No one really knows how much Kim (and Kris Jenner) made off of the wedding, but it was probably eight figures. Add to that all of the other Kardashian-branded krap that Kim makes buckets of money off of… $7 million sounds like not even a third of Kim’s 2011 income. Just cut the bastard a check and be done with it.

Here are some photos of Kim in West Hollywood yesterday:

    Only in California could you make $7 million dollars for marrying a bag of botox for 72 days. That’s almost $100,000 dollars per day (less 30% for lawyer’s fees).

    • Zelda says:

      Your math makes me sad for the world.

    • TheFactR says:

      I think this must be true, they agreed to put the wedding earning and money from Kardashian’s filming into a joint account to live on. Thus is why the SURPRISE ATTACK when she filed the pappers without his knowledge. Sounds true, therefore Kris would be owed half the money in the account. I think he is being more honest than is SHE. The marrage was a fraulent matter and SHE should pay for trickery of the fans, public and anyone else during that time.

      The dress is wrinkled, bad taste as she always has had, slutty, and those shoes have NEVER EVER been pretty on anyone. Kim looks like a hooker and if that marriage is a fraud and they put that on a show that is telling fans it is real life, then she is a hooker liar and criminal!
      Either say the show is “DRAMA” or “REALITY” it can’t be both and be honest to the fans or public.

    • Rebane says:

      You mean only in California could someone make over 20 million dollars in 72 days? Because without a prenup you get half of shared assets in most states that I’m aware of. At least that’s the way it is in the West. Most are community property states – a system left over from when they were still part of Mexico or Spain. If she earned that money while they were married then he is entitled to half because they were partners and they earned it together through him supporting her – assuming that the prenup is voided of course.

      • Rebane says:

        The 20 million figure was a rumored amount I heard they got for the wedding, I just realized I made it sound like I thought 7 was half of 20. (I guess I should eat lunch before I type next time, sorry.) I don’t like Kris in any way, but it seems like he did support her while they were married so I hope he gets something out of their “marriage”/publicity stunt.

  2. Asli says:

    7 million is an easy deal for Kim. Though Kris is such a douchebag. It’s like, I want Kim to have to give up the 7 mil but I don’t want Kris to get it. So sleazy.

    On another note, who the hell is buying their crap? Anything Kardashion endorsed is enough to make me run screaming from the product.

  3. Franny says:

    Kim became famous because she looked different than the standard Hollywood type – she had beautiful Armenian features, curves in all the right places and seemed interesting. How did that morph into this? The first new picture of her makes her look like nothing she did before. Its so sad.

  4. jano1981 says:

    Worst dress ever for her. Cant stand that brat tho. I actually would like the dress on someone else ! Its not the right length.

  5. jano1981 says:

    And the top is tooooo small. smooshing action.

  6. says:

    I don’t think I’m fully awake…. her face looks very relaxed/less jacked than usual here….

  7. ahoyhoy says:

    UGH. She’s 30. Time to put away the itty-bitty girl dresses.

    • Alexis says:

      Disagree. The dress is unflattering and cheaply made, not age-inappropriate. It would be better if it was made of better material and on someone with a more boyish figure.

      KK’s a crazy ho, but there’s no need to age-shame her for being 30, which is still pretty young.

  8. Azurea says:

    Oh, for Gawd’s sake, when are these shoes that look like drywaller’s stilts going to go away?

  9. Lucky Charm says:

    WTH happened to her face? That doesn’t even look like her. And why is a 30 yo woman dressed like a teenager? And yeah, $7mil is just a drop in the bucket to her, she probably carries that around as pocket change!

  10. Sugarrbunny says:

    This girl just canNOT dress. Pay someone to help you or better yet just go away.

  11. lisa says:

    She is so short.. even in those 6 inch heels she looks short.

    I don’t like the dress. She is curvy and she should not wear those baby doll dresses.

    she looks so better when she does not cake on that eye mascara.

  12. Luise says:

    I hope she is forced to pay him a lot more than $7 million.

  13. Agnes says:

    i’m no fan of his, but he probably deserves some cash for the pure trauma of dating her and interacting with all of them. haha. (and what the hell is she wearing?)

  14. Sequined Pajamas says:

    I have seen Kelly Brook wear a dress just like that,same length different color. It looked amazing on her. Kelly is older than Kim. However, she knows how to work her beauty and not punish her body by forcing herself into a dress that is too small.
    Kim needs to give up the ghost(you are not a 4) and stop trying to squeeze her hydro-gel ass into dresses, pants, tops, shorts,skirts and hair extensions that are too small.

  15. Bad Gal Addiction says:

    One deep breath and that size 2 dress will burst.

  16. brin says:

    Let’s all chip in and pay Kim kat-face and her family to go away.

  17. Hautie says:

    I tend to agree. The smart thing is to cut this boy a check and be done with it.

    If she actually goes to court it will screw with her income. Significantly. I don’t think ole Kim can afford to have her ass dragged through a public trial about how she lied. In order to fake a TV wedding for cash.

    Suck it up. Pay him off. Get that non-disclosure signed. And go make up the money you had to pay him. You got out played. Just move on.

    Yet, I can see her greedy Mother thinking they can escape paying him anything.

    But that will not end in a positive way for any of them.

    Humphries may have looked a little slow witted. But it seems like he is going to walk away with some that E! wedding money after all.

  18. Kris says:

    I have problem with her body. I’d never call her fat but she always looks somehow heavy to me. There is something off with her body proportions.

  19. Kimble says:

    The only way to hurt a Kardashian is through the pocket book – I hope he gets the $7m!

  20. NinaG says:

    What do we need to pay her to go away?

    • Dhavy says:

      I was thinking the same thing!!!!
      God knows $7M is a small amount to get any Whoredashian out of my system.
      No matter what dress she wears she will always make it look cheap. If I was a designer and she wears my stuff I would pull my hair out and pay her to never wear my line

  21. dorothy says:

    Is it me or does seem more “fat ass” than sexy these days?

  22. Mar says:

    She is a disgrace to humanity

  23. brasileira says:

    Aw, if only Humphries had two functioning brain cells that would allow him to write a tell-all.

    Wishful thinking!

    I think that’s what the Kardashians are hanging to: the fact that the man is dumb as a door and can’t put together two sentences without “ahm, basketbal, ahm”.

    • TheFactR says:

      Khris would be dumb to write a tell all book, he was boo’d off the BB court in the first game of the season. BUT wait mayb a tell all book could HELP his imagine hummmmmmm. OK Kris write a tell all book, I know the Kardashians are frauds but put it in print so everyone can watch the Kardashian fam squirm and slime their way out of that!

    • Boxy Lady says:

      I don’t think he can write a tell-all at this point because of some terms in the pre-nup. Actually, this report doesn’t make any sense to me (and his people have denied it). TMZ is a pro-Kardashian media outlet so actually I guess it does make sense. I just meant that why would he fight so hard for an annulment and then ask for money to settle for a divorce? Especially when his side has made so much of the fact that he is strong Christian and does not believe in divorce? My theory: the Kardashians offered *him* that $7 million so that he would just sign divorce papers and be done with it without doing a public trial but he refused it and now they are trying to turn it around on him through the media.

    • Morganism says:

      I believe he actually pronounced it “baksetball” I saw that piece of duh on good morning America or some shiz..
      That being said, I despise that KUNTRASHIAN family!
      I get compared to the main hoe Kim everywhere I go because I have an ass and long black hair…but I contest the comparison EVERY time! #1 I am a professional, college grad #2 I’ve never had plastic surgery, and #3 don’t compare me to that vapid piece of wasted space! Gah! Are you AWARE you are completely insulting me?!?

  24. Cathy says:

    Her girls are about ready to pop out of the front of that dress. She’s to big for that type of dress. Gawd she looks horrid. Just go away please.

  25. I love Louboutins but i HATE that particular style when the platform is WAY to big and they end up looking like hooves.

  26. Kloops says:

    Chump change for the chimp. She’ll pay it.

  27. Sassy says:

    I’m no fan of Kris H. but I hope he gets that money.

    That dress *might* be cute on a teen girl but on Kim? STUPID. And OMG how much do I hate those shoes??!

  28. Rach says:

    Hate kk but im not really seeing how she looks so fat..maybe the dress is a little tight but i think she has a great body..*hides*. Oh well, maybe im just fat.

  29. Beatrice says:

    Another edition of “My Stylist Hates Me”

  30. samira677 says:

    If this is true l don’t know why people are shocked that Kim refuses to pay. She’s cheap and loves money. She resused to give back the wedding gifts and that was just a few hundred thousand. Supposedly she gave double the money to charity but she must have a financial benefit. It would have been cheaper to return the gifts. Maybe Seacrest or the network paid.

  31. HadleyB says:

    I don’t get why he doesn’t get half of what they made off the wedding..there would of been no wedding without him in the first place! Is 7 million more or less than what they made from the wedding? I thought they made over 30 million from it alone?

    I keep hearing all these weird figures.. and didn’t Kris Jenner become his manager after the wedding? I would be suing her ass as I am sure she didn’t do a good job being HIS manager during the marriage or after…

    And who are the dumb asses that buy Kardashian junk and the dumb parents that allow their kids to buy or buy it for them?? yikes.

  32. Penguin says:

    hopefully he will bleed her dry. don’t like all these fat comments about Kim though. Yeah she’s an attention seeking famewhore but she’s certainly nt fat.

  33. hopperlea says:

    Is it just me or do Kim’s heels get taller as she gains more weight? Soon she will be wearing 12 inch heels. Who is KK kidding with her size?

    • fabgrrl says:

      No, it’s not you. That is a trick us short people use. When I was heavier, I wore bigger, thicker, taller shoes. And they looked weird on my itty, bitty feet. I’m looking into flats again, now that I am back to my pre-preggy pants.

  34. Dredz says:

    What?! Only 7 million??? That’s all he asked???

  35. Mauibound says:

    For a minute there I saw her real face, and I remembered what a pretty girl she was. Now all I see is a overdone face.

  36. LeeLoo says:

    I kind of believe him when he says what he really wants is an annullment. If this is true then I think he is asking for $7 mil to walk away from this. So I think it is either annullment or $7 mil.

  37. truthful says:

    why are folks up top calling Kris a douche or sleeze??

    HE has a career that he has profesisonally trained for all of his life.

    Trash bag wallowed in piss for the cameras and she is BETTER??

    Kim made a bunch of money off of the wedding and her and her mammy pocketed all of it.

    Kris DESERVES every dime he gets and more, they could careless about his NBA career–I hope he gets MORE…the way that family treated his family at the wedding is despicable.

    Trashy scammers that think they are “beyond and talented”.

    filthy and fake

    ps. I hope he tells some of their trashy secrets–cause I see they still have a few cheerleaders here. its sad that he went of that SCRIPTED show and played the role they wanted.

    Kris Hump comes from a good family, can’t say the same about these moneygrubbing slores, starting w/the mammy. its inherited.

  38. PyCaramel says:

    DAMN this lady is SHORT AS HELL!!! If she were about 5’6 or taller I think her body would look better. It’s hard for a short, curvy woman. I’m glad I am 5’7 b/c with my proportions, I would probably look dumpy or frumpy at only 5’1.

    • MizzVJJ says:

      Its not all that bad dear. Im 4’11″ and curvy but not at all fat or frumpy. The most compliment I recieve is “sexy lil thing”. Hehe :)

    • MizzVJJ says:

      Its not all that bad dear. Im 4’11″ and curvy but not at all fat or frumpy. The most compliment I recieve is “sexy lil thing”. Hehe :)

      • islandwalker says:

        Me too Miss VJJ- 4’11″, slim but athletically built and not at all dumpy or frumpy. However, I DO know how to dress my body to accentuate the positive and disguise the height-challenge. lol. I do hate when people act like being short is something to be ashamed off or make fun of, it’s not like we can do anything about it. Her problem ( one of many) is she is NOT a size 2 or 4 and she really does not understand how to dress to flatter her figure. That…and she is a classless fameho.

  39. Dee Cee says:

    She never slept with him after they married.. he deserves compensation for frank in your face humiliation and public rejection..? And that is what she takes in, gallivanting around the world schmoozing with her rich friends.. in a few months.. yes? She wasn’t planning on staying married to him, just using him for publicity and gain.. raw deal, frankly.. she callously used him. his family, friends and scorned him hoping her fans would too.. without pity and shame. Half her money wouldn’t be enough.

  40. The Original Mia says:

    Get that money, Lurch!

  41. MS says:

    He deserves every cent of 7 million, and then some!

  42. Mario says:

    Kris is now the highest paid male prostitute in America, and he learned it all from a family of whores.

  43. dorothy says:

    Go team Kris. Anyone would deserve that for putting up with Kim for 72 days.

  44. Morganism says:

    And check out Michael K’s response to Jon Hamm vs. trash and trashier.

  45. jwoolman says:

    TMZ isn’t a very reliable source on the  Kardashian Kronicles these days and has become an extension of Mama Ten Percent’s smear campaign against Kris H.  But consider that Kris H has been pushing for an annulment, not a divorce (hence the courtroom drama). Doesn’t sound like he cares about the money. Divorce should be more lucrative. He certainly hasn’t tried to drain their joint account, into which the proceeds from wedding-related profitable adventures went. He apparently hasn’t asked for half the wedding gift booty either, instead he says the gifts should have been returned. I’ve heard that most of the registry gifts were still at the store, but Kimmie Koo got store credit for them rather than just letting the store credit the begifters and return the items to stock. TMZ is too busy insulting Kris H to bother to investigate whether that is true or false, although it sure does sound like our Kimmie Koo. 

     Actually, Kris H has made it pretty clear that he doesn’t care about the money (the Kardashians’ worst nightmare, a man they might not be able to bribe). The guy is rich and getting richer (family business plus investments, not just basketball) and he doesn’t live extravagantly. If there is any talk of money from his side, my guess is that it is only to strike fear into their gold-plated dark hearts. 

    I can believe that the K Klan has made an offer to make him vanish, though. I just doubt that TMZ’s headline about him demanding any such $$$ is correct. He seems really determined to get Kimmie & Ko. on the witness stand and to blow the lid off all the deception. My bet is that Kim lied to him before the wedding about quite important stuff, maritally speaking. He wants to prove fraud as the basis for an annulment. 

  46. the original bellaluna says:

    Sounds to me like Lardassian is getting off on the cheap end of the deal at only
    $7M, considering she KEPT over $100K worth of gifts; plus the publicity; plus the advertisements; plus the papparazzi-moon; PLUS THE EVERYTHING ELSE!

    She needs to sit down, STFU, and GTFO for a long, long, L-O-N-G TIME!

  47. dorothy says:

    What’s with the little girl dress? She looks ridiculous.

  48. Jayna says:

    Ha ha. Get that money, Kris. It will kill money-grubbing Kim.

  49. Carol says:

    Get as much as you can Kris. I have a funny feeling that Kris will make out like a bandit when all is said and done. I kind of wonder though if he could ever “enjoy” spending that devil money.
