Kris Humphries sued by a woman who claims he gave her herpes


The last time we paid any amount of attention to Kris “basketball” Humphries’ personal life, he was being accused of impregnating a women he tried to deny ever dating, even though there were plenty of photos of the two of them together on vacation, and he gave her courtside seats to his games. It turns out the woman was just leaking the fake pregnancy stories to TMZ in an attempt to get back at Humphries, who had threatened to sue her for going public with their relationship.

Kris is still trying to play the wronged party when it comes to his long-over marriage to Kim Kardashian, and that involves making it look like he’s pining away for her when in reality he’s boning randoms and trying to keep it casual. The divorce between Kris and Kim will never end, and Kris is reportedly trying to drag it out for as long as possible. Well that strategy may backfire on him, because he’s facing more trouble in his personal life. A chick is suing Kris for giving her herpes! Hahaha. All of this (allegedly) went down in 2010 before Kris met Kim, but it’s still bad news for his divorce I would guess, since he and his lawyer are quick to deny the accusations. They don’t deny that he hooked up with her though. Here’s that story. (Note that this is NOT the same girl who made the pregnancy accusation. This woman is named Kyla, that other woman was named Myla, lol!)

Kris Humphries has just been sued by a woman who claims he gave her herpes … TMZ has learned.

Kayla Goldberg claims she met Kris in August, 2010 at the Newsroom Cafe on Robertson Blvd in L.A. — long before Kris met Kim Kardashian. The two flirted, exchanged numbers, and Kayla claims that night they met up at Trousdale nightclub on the Sunset Strip.

According to the suit, Kris came on to Kayla, touching, kissing and dancing with her. Kayla claims he took her to his hotel and they had sex multiple times … including oral sex. The suit claims during a portion of the sexual encounter Kris did not wear a condom.

The lawsuit claims Kris did not inform Kayla he had herpes — and she claims in the suit that he did indeed have the disease.

Kayla says a week later she was diagnosed with herpes. Her symptoms included a sore throat, fever, body aches and immobilizing pain, as well as extreme vaginal irritation and painful lesions on her genitalia.

She’s suing for sexual battery claiming Kris knew he had herpes when they hooked up and didn’t tell her.

Kayla — who put her full name in the lawsuit — is suing for unspecified damages. – From TMZ


“Kris was recently accused by another woman of giving her Herpes, this happened within the last two months,” a source close to the NBA star tells RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Kris tested negative for it though and for any other sexually transmitted disease and he is absolutely steadfast that he has never given anyone Herpes. Kris plans on vigorously fighting the lawsuit filed against him by Kayla Goldberg and is considering counter-suing her for defamation.”

As previously reported, Goldberg alleges that she met Humphries at The Newsroom Cafe in Los Angeles on August 31, 2010 and that the two went on to have unprotected sex in his hotel room at the Thompson Hotel.

“Once Kayla Goldberg and Kris Humphries arrived at his hotel room they had sexual intercourse more than once, becoming intimate partners,” the court documents assert. “During their interactions Humphries also performed oral sex on Goldberg….Defendant Humphries did not at any time inform Plaintiff that he was infected with the incurable venereal disease, Herpes Simplex Virus.”

Goldberg claims she was “free of any venereal diseases at the time she commenced her intimate relationship with Kris Humphries…Goldberg developed symptoms of herpes about or around four to five days after the first sexual encounter with Humphries. These symptoms included sore throat, fever, body aches and immobilizing pain, extreme pain, extreme vaginal irritation and painful lesions on her genitalia. A doctor officially diagnosed Goldberg with Herpes on September 8, 2010, through an examination and swab test.”

Humphries is currently embroiled in a legal battle with his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian to end their 72-day-marriage. Kardashian is now dating Kanye West.

“Kris will take the advice of his lawyers, but he absolutely wants to take legal action against Kayla Goldberg for her actions and this lawsuit,” the insider reveals. – From Radar

[From TMZ and Radar]

Of course Kris is threatening to sue, he threatened to sue that Myla chick when she dared tell TMZ that she was seeing him. I believe this lawsuit, because I don’t think anyone would go through all the trouble of using their full name and suing unless it was true. I could be wrong. Celebrities, even d-listers like this tool, attract frivolous lawsuits. Also, read that Radar story carefully, another woman accused Kris of giving her herpes within the last two months, so he knows he doesn’t have it because he took a test at that time. That’s a bit suspect. If the other woman was that Myla chick, I could see how she would make it up to get under his skin, but come on. This guy is a douche of the highest order. He’s not denying sleeping with this woman, he’s denying giving her herpes. How often is he hooking up with random chicks to have not one but two go public with these type of accusations? These are the tip of the iceberg of randoms.

Kris is shown partying in Miami on 7-15-12. I wonder how many chicks he gave the herp to there. Credit: BRJ/FameFlynet

    lol this just keeps getting better.

    If true all I can say is….ew

    • BB says:

      Any sympathy people had for Kris is totally gone. Kris is an idiot! Even if he didn’t give this woman herpes, the fact that he had unprotected sex with a stranger is ridiculous. The image Kris has tried to portray is not real.

      • Tapioca says:

        And surely the fact that she chose to have unprotected sex with a professional basketball player – world-reknowned for sticking their d**ks in anything and everything – suggests that she might be an idiot too?!!

        If she did have unprotected sex during a one-off hook-up with this guy, then I doubt she was exactly a virgin when they met so she could easily have been infected much earlier as herpes can lie low for years. Plus, y’know, she waited TWO YEARS until he had Kardashian Divorce Money on the horizon to file her lawsuit so I’m not exactly convinced by her story!

      • Gia says:

        Lol what? You think he’s an idiot for sleeping with randoms? Welcome to reality where single, young, rich athletes hook up. He’s an idiot for marrying a loser like Kim. Other than
        That, he seems pretty normal.

    • Genevieve says:

      @ BB….HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!

      Sorry, I know that was infantile. But this guy is the worst, lying, D-list tool I think I have ever seen.

      I’m incredibly sorry for the girl if this is true. But how typical of the Big, Dumb Rock to go all, “Oh, pity me, I was abused and led down the garden path by the evil tramp KK” (OK, that part I don’t disagree with) and I will never, ever, NEVER get over it and I’m a faithful, mourning little puppy. *wah-ahah*”.

      Man up, bitch-boy. Your 15 minutes is O-V-E-R.

    • Molly says:

      He is gross and obviously mentally challenged.

      • cadetpink says:

        Ok, this sounds fake just because of the amount of time passed between the ‘hookup’ and the ‘outbreak’. In people with EXTREMELY compromised immune systems symptoms will surface sooner- but can take 20+ days after exposure, so the 5 day thing….EXTREMELY DOUBTFUL…

        Kim and Kris are both stunads but for totally different reasons….

  2. Jacq says:

    So does Kim have herpes? That’s the BURNING question – ha!

    • Talie says:

      Basically, there’s no way she doesn’t if Kris has it. You know those two didn’t have protected sex.

      • Eve says:

        Sadly my best friend was given herpes a few years ago from her then partner, so her and I have done a lot of reading on it. Someone can only become infected if the person has an outbreak at the time, and if my memory serves me they will only show positive for herpes simplex 2 on an STD test if they have an outbreak at the time of the test also. He may very well have passed a test but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have it. It also doesn’t mean Kim does, if he didn’t have an outbreak in the time they were together, which is possible, especially if he’s on the meds. Normally outbreaks occur when the person is run down as the virus lives in the immune system, so if he’s been out partying could be outbreak season!

      • Belly says:

        @Eve – I’m sorry about your friend, but some of the information you have is incorrect. I CAN be passed on in the absence of an outbreak, via viral shedding. If your friend thinks she isn’t contagious because she doesn’t have any lesions she is wrong.
        Also, you can test positive to the antibodies during a latent phase. There are different antibodies – IgM usually present during an outbreak/symptomatic period, IgG after that.
        Your friend still needs to tell partners, even when asymptomatic.

      • TJ says:

        Belly is right, Eve. My sister is a nurse and unfortunately my daughter has it. An infected person is always contagious, even if you don’t see bumps, blisters or lesions. Whatever research you and your friend have done, please do more and find a more reliable source. It’s also best she tell her partner up front and let them decide whether or not to take the chance. Even with protection, it’s risky.
        Molly – He seems special to me, too. I don’t know if it’s the wideset eyes or the fact that with any expresion, he just LOOKS like his bulb is dim. The dumb things he’s done don’t help.

    • Sarah says:

      Like the Native Americans before the Pilgrims, I’m sure herpes was there long before Kris staked his claim.

    • idk says:

      I bet the Kardashians paid that girl to claim Kris gave her Herpes.

  3. gg says:

    Okay, I’ve been a paralegal since the 80s and I’ve seen lawsuits like this. It always gets thrown out because you simply cannot prove this. A huge percentage of the population already has herpes and has no idea they have it.

    • Johanna says:

      Please don’t quote me but I believe the statistic for infection in general population for herpes 1 is a whopping 80%! And, you’re right, I don’t think you can prove how you got it because it can be passed on in a non sexual way.

      On another note, he’s a moron and no more tolerable than his soon to be ex wife.

      • Katie Too says:

        Y’all are right. The simple test to see if you’ve been exposed to the virus reveals a majority of people have been exposed to the virus. But many have never had symptoms our outbreaks and it may be just the cold sore version.

        What the medical sex/ed folks have been lax with in the past is explaining oral herpes can be spread to the genitals via oral sex and without visible sores on the mouth. The carrier is usually completely unaware. That’s likely why the girl mentioned he preformed oral sex on her in her Petition.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        I believe that the other percentage of 20% is immune to the virus.
        Its hereditary (immunity), my family passed down my asthma and allergies, but none of us have ever had as much as a cold sore.

        I’m too lazy to fact check cuz I feel like crap, but I seem to remember that from med school…

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        I did a bunch of fact checking from several sites. Here you go.

        One in five Americans have genital herpes (yet at least 80 percent of those with herpes are unaware they have it).

        About 80 percent of American adults have oral herpes (cold sores).

        An estimated 25 percent of American adults have genital herpes.

        SO, 80% have HSV1 which are cold sores. (not the same as genital)
        25% have HSV2 which is genital.
        80% of HSV2 are undiagnosed.

    • Sisi says:

      so it’s not just celebrities that are sued over this?

      In my country lawsuits don’t happen as easily as in America, so I have no clue what happens there with std claims. All I know is the stereotype American from television that sues, so basically I know nothing

      there was one lawsuit here about a man who was hiv-positive and knowingly had unprotected sex, but that’s it. I think that case was denied eventually, because the judge thought that both people in the sexual encounter carry responsibility for their own bodies. The woman had consented to unprotected sex, and so she had no case for possible manslaughter.

      That’s the only std case here that I know ever existed. (there’s another one about two men who injected a bunch of men with hiv-infected blood so they would all get the disease and live happily ever after sick & together or something, but that wasn’t sex and certainly not consentual)

      never seen anything about herpes or any other std though

      • gg says:

        Yes, they try to sue non-celebs as well. The very first time I encountered a lawsuit like this was in Atlanta and did involve a celebrity. It was a high-profile basketball player and the poor woman, on first outbreak, had to be hospitalized because she had it literally covering all the skin on her body. Never heard anything like this before or since. She even had it under her eyelids and her face was engulfed in sores. ::shudder:: I am guessing she had a compromised immune system. In somebody like that, even something like a simple plantar wart (verruca) can go, well, viral, and cause total havok.

        Dede Koswara, the “tree man”, has a similar condition. Poor guy. I’ve been following his case for years and he gets little relief, and it’s always fleeting, and his country won’t allow him to come to the US to be treated by immunologists because they think we’ll take his samples and :gasp: use them to create immunity medicines, and they don’t want to help some awful country like America.

      • OriginalTiffany says:

        @gg, are you Atlanta based Still?

        Either way, could you post a comment under this story on the CB FB page? Got something I want to ask you…

      • gg says:

        Yes, Otiff, I’ve done so. Family is still in Atlanta, I moved about 15 years ago

      • Katie Too says:

        The 1 in 5 statistic for genital herpies is believed to be notoriously low since not many get tested if they’ve never had an outbreak. Plus, the most basic test, I believe, doesn’t differentiate between oral and genital types. And, if the 80% chance of oral herpes is correct, 80% of people could transmit that virus to their partners’ genitals even if no cold sore is present.

        And if you want to freak out more, look up statistics of hpv. Just got my daughter vaccinated, but if you’re over about 25 and have had sex with more than one partner, doctors generally assume you’ve been exposed…

  4. Tifygodess24 says:

    I smell Kardashian all over this , I’m waiting to see how this story unfolds.
    And btw someone doesn’t have to be pinning away over someone to ask for an annulment , i never understood all that about him being wrong. If it was fraud it was fraud. Regardless how someone feels about kris or Kim they are both messed up. Kim won’t turn in financials and do her Depos and because of that it’s being delayed again and again and Kris won’t settle or let it go, maybe the dumb ass really thought their wedding / marriage was for real and realized to late it wasn’t thus wanting the annulment and not to mention a little pay back.

    • Erinn says:

      I agree. It wouldn’t be above the Kardashian Klan to be behind this. I honestly really do think Kris is incredibly dumb. I wouldn’t be surprised if he thought it was a real marriage, even if he wasn’t completely in love with her. He seems like a pretty easy/willing guy to get manipulated by this family.

      I don’t really feel sympathy for him, but if this lawsuit is made up I feel bad that people are low enough to publicly humiliate others.

    • TheOriginalMaxi says:

      +1, they are getting nervous that he’s not backing down. Oh man, they are disgusting. It is going to be amazing if all their shady stuff is found out. Ladies, we need to ALL support this guy, just because he has the power to bring down the Kartrashians!!

      • TG says:

        You gues are good. I hadn’t thought of that but I could totally see mommy dearest putting this one out there. If as the paralegal said above most of these lawsuits get thrown out anyway mommy dearest would know that the media exposure is all that matters. I don’t like kim, or either of the Kris’s but I am glad he isn’t settling. Maybe Kimmy and Mommy have met their match. Though he does seem to be a bit stupid but you can be taken in by an idiot so we will see.

    • Sisi says:

      The Kardashian got it from the Hilton?

  5. paola says:

    Eww! he probably got it from Kim who got it from someone who peed on her. Keep on going, this gets better and better!

  6. tru tru says:

    Kris said he was tested this summer and he is negative.

    does this mean that TRASH bag could have it??? LOL

    soooo this supposed chick waited 2 yrs before she came forward, hmmm.

    I don’t beleive it. I think she had it already, I did not know that lesions pop up (no pun intended) in a matter of a few days.

    I’m no expert but I don’t beleive it.

  7. Feebee says:

    Can you imagine what the court docket would look like if everyone sued when they got an STD? Can she be countersued for having sex with him without a condom? No? Then suck it up.

    What next? Suing the guy in the elevator who sneezed on her?

    In no way absolving anyone who knowingly passes on an STD, that’s just rude right there not to mention dangerous but the courts? Really??

    • Katie Too says:

      Well it is a viable cause of action. Proving who the source is would be the must difficult problem. Plus, there’s invasive discovery regarding sexual history. If she’s had multiple partners between when she tested clean for exposure to herpes (a long shot in and of itself) and when she had an outbreak,she pretty much has to show none of those partners had it (ha!) and that Humphries knew he had it.

  8. Lm says:

    So… Kim has herpes.

    Priceless.

  9. Dawn says:

    Hmmm….I wonder who he kould have kaught that from? What would be a good klue? Hmmm…kould she have an enormous ass? The Kartrashians, the klan that just keeps on giving and giving and giving. Too funny.

  10. Nikzilla37 says:

    Those women they’re hanging out with are BEAT.

  11. Shelly says:

    So does this mean he gave Kim herpes, too? I guess that’s the logical assumption…

  12. Erinn says:

    I think she used her full name because she legitimately caught herpes from someone, and is just hoping that someone has some cash.

    Now I don’t know anything about law outside my hs law class… but in this article(www.tmz.com/2012/08/29/kris-humphries-sued-lawsuit-herpes/) it says VS Kris Humphries and John Does 1-4 individuals.

    Does that mean there are 4 other possible people that could have given her herpes? And who’s names she does not know?

    • janam says:

      Thanks for pointing that out. I don’t think Kris is too bright, but this skank also names 1-4 “John Doe’s” in her lawsuit. She claims it happened over two years ago, and is just now filing coincidentally right after Kris just signed a contract worth millions? Get a clue people, and stop being so gullible.

  13. Chria says:

    For starters you aren’t going to have all full blown symptoms 5 days later. Also, to my understanding unless he was experiencing an outbreak she couldn’t get it. If he was having an outbreak she would have been able to tell. I get lip sores (I HATE them) and they’re noticeable so I’m very sure a lesion on his c**k would stand out especially if she went down on him. Its pathetic what nobody’s will do for their 15 minutes. I recommend valtrex commercials.

  14. Blue says:

    Ya, I’m not buying this story. Even IF it was true she needs to take some responsibility for her actions as well. Having unprotected sex with a stranger is never a good idea.
    Do symptoms appear so quickly? Why did she wait 2 years? If she got it from him how come he doesn’t have it (according to his source)

  15. Joanna says:

    so it took her two years to figure out she had herpes? or two years later, she realizes she can clean up since he’s famous now. your fault, ho, should have made him use a rubber. takes two to tango. her parents must be so proud.

  16. KellyinSeattle says:

    I think it’s a roll of the dice; she can’t sue because that’s the risk you take when you have unprotected sex with someone. What’s next, suing when you get pregnant?

    • Katie Too says:

      Consent to unprotected sex is not a defense, at least in the jurisdictions I’m familiar with. Plus, condoms do help, but viral shedding can occur on places not covered by a condom, or the mouth.

      There’s a great deal of conjecture that the pubic shaving trend has increased the number of infections due to skin breaks caused by shaving.

      Sorry for lecturing; I’ll get off my soapbox.

  17. rebecca says:

    first off, herpes is a huge drag but is very manageable and doesn’t kill you. just like when you get a cold sore–which 80% of the world popluation does, you deal with it until it goes away. there’s such a negative stigma but the fact is soooo many people have it–and not just sleezy athletes…doctors, lawyers, professors, and people who don’t sleep around get it too. and if you hook up with someone and have unprotected sex then this is the risk you take.

  18. stinky says:

    if the trend is to start suing those who share this disease, then i’m all FOR it. fear of ‘the herps’ is the driving force in keeping me from ho-ing a little more… and i’m angry about that.

  19. looseal says:

    There is NO protection available from herpes. Because it is skin-to-skin transmission condoms do not help. And it can be transmitted even when not having an outbreak.

  20. LeslieM says:

    I can’t stand this guy. He is such a dolt.

  21. Violet says:

    Someone who has sex with strangers — which both Kris and this woman do — is bound to wind up with herpes sooner or later, whether or not they use condoms.

    All things considered, they’re both lucky they’re not HIV+. And Kris is leaving himself wide open to a paternity suit if he’s not wrapping it up.

  22. TG says:

    I always thought you should never have sleep with anyone without requiring them to get a medical history for STDs? Aanything less than that is your own fault. This is why I don’t think I can ever fully embrace the liberal party. I mean I would never vote for anyone trying to take away women’s rights but at some point you have to take responsiblity for your own actions and having sex with anyone who has not produced a certificate of good health is playing with fire.

  23. Alicia says:

    TG – Well, I got it from my boyfriend of two years who I trusted but who was skanking around behind my back, so no, I wasn’t being irresponsible with my health. I was in a committed relationship. So unless you are proposing that we all get our significant others to CONSTANTLY re-prove their STI-free status, then you’re never “safe”. That being said, it’s really not a big deal. Also, you can’t sue someone for giving you an STI, but you CAN try to sue if they knowingly had it and didn’t inform you. It’s not the having of the STI, it’s the neglect of informed consent.

  24. Vesper says:

    I don’t feel sorry for her at all. 1) Don’t sleep with someone u just met, especially someone who was married to a whore. 2) Wear a condom.

    As for Kris, if he was already tested for herpes and his results were negative, she has no case. Even, if she did, the woman obviously sleeps around. She could have already had herpes as the virus can remain dormant for years. As well, the abrasive nature of sex can cause a breakout, so the fact that she just had sex with Kris shortly before does not necessarily prove he gave it to her.

    Why is he a d-bag for sleeping with other women? His marriage is over, it was fraudalent to begin with, thanks to Kim. She started dating as soon as they split, why is he being seen as the bad guy?

    As for who is dragging their feet in their divorce, according to Radar, it is Kim.

  25. HUMPDUMB says:

    He is GROSS & such a loser.

  26. Lady_Luck says:

    Oh Yuck!!!
    The burning shame of it all.
    Now everybody knows Kim has herpes too!!! lol

  27. skuddles says:

    Well if she’s dumb enough to diddle the guy without a condom then she’s just asking for trouble. Especially when it comes to these high profile guys who ho it up with different women all the time.

    So does this mean Kimmy has the herp too?

  28. erika says:

    HE GOT IT FROM KIM!!! even 2012!!! Kim’s Herpes is so bad it’s retroactive!!!

    ok folks, we’re adults:

    facts:

    men who carry herpes genes sometimes don’t show symptoms, they may not know they have it…

    although likely, if you exhibit herpes after sex, COULD be you’ve had the virus for years and just now it’s becoming visible

    USE PROTECTION Baby Girl! if a man won’t put it on don’t PUT OUT!

  29. Alicia says:

    If you have sores but it doesn’t show up in your blood stream, it does mean you *just* got it – your body hasn’t had time to build up antibodies.

  30. BlackCloud says:

    Wow i guess kim can add herpes now to her STD collection….

  31. jwoolman says:

    The timing of her outbreak and dalliance are not impossible, even though unusual, and the disease can be transmitted without obvious signs in the partner. But there are four other men named in the suit as John Doe 1-4 because she doesn’t even know where they are now. And unless she was tested at least several weeks after her last encounter before she did it with Kris – there is no way for her to know that she was herpes-free before yet again having sex with a random stranger without at least insisting on a condom.
    -
    It’s pretty obvious that she’s going after Kris because she knows how to contact him due to the publicity and she knows he has a lot of money, so an out of court settlement is likely to get her a lot of cash. Money is the only possible motivation for such a peculiar suit, herpes isn’t fun but obviously she has been risking getting it for a long time before she met Kris in 2010. But I can’t see how it would have any chance at all in court- they didn’t have a long-term relationship, it was a casual and very brief encounter. And if he has tested negative recently, the case is pretty weak. But even if he’s positive, it still is weak because the causal link is so weak.

    I do suspect a K Klan connection because of the timing – they seem especially desperate to not do full financial disclosure. But this encounter occurred before he met Kim so I can’t see how it would scare him. I also can’t believe that Kimmie would have selected Kris H as her patsy if he didn’t come up clean as the proverbial whistle in a pre-phoney engagement & wedding health check. Odds are that Mama Ten Percent checked out more than his health, also.

  32. void says:

    While I do think it’s shameful to knowingly expose a person to herpes or any other such illness without informing them, the stigma that goes along with not only herpes but all STD’s is so incredibly pointless and detrimental. The stigma of herpes is nowhere near proportional to the actual severity of the disease. My ex had herpes and I managed not to catch it, largely because he had the courage to tell me and take as many preventative measures as possible, but the stigma itself caused him immense anxiety about telling me, he felt cornered by it and almost had a nervous freaking breakdown trying to decide if he wanted to tell me or just stop dating me and disappear out of fear. It’s not fair that people have to go through this over something that gives you sores not much more painful than ingrown hairs.

  33. Dani says:

    I mean if you’re going to have unprotected sex with someone you should know what consequences you might have to deal with later on. I sort of kind of really really minimally feel bad for Kris. Everyone’s swinging at him left and right (probably in relation to Kim) for such irrelevant things. Like oh, 2 years later you decided to let him know via the media and your lawyer that he gave you herpes?
