Did Kim Kardashian offer Kris Humphries a settlement to grant the divorce?

I know Kanye West is not well-liked around these parts, but he seems like he’s really making the effort to be a good boyfriend. I’m completely serious! These are new pics of Kanye and Kim in Paris, where they’ve been on a crazy shopping spree for the better part of a week. On Friday, Kanye took Kim shopping at the Hermes, Cartier, Lanvin and Ermanno Scervino stores. He bought her a bunch of stuff too!! Yes, it’s materialistic, but I think it’s sweet that Kanye likes to take Kim shopping and he buys her pretty things. Gah! Don’t yell at me. I even sort of think it’s cute that Kanye isn’t bothered by Kim’s awful style. LOOK AT THAT DRESS. It’s like she thinks huge ruffles and baggy everything will somehow “mask” her pregnancy. That is just an awful dress for a pregnant woman. Completely. I’m sure she left white feathers all over Paris too.

There are several Kardashian stories spinning around this weekend (as always), but if you don’t mind, I’m going to avoid that breast milk story like the plague – you can see the video and coverage here. I’m not into it. I’m not judging breast milk or anything, I simply don’t want to watch the video. But as always, I’m open to covering Kardashian Kash and The Great Divorce War. On Friday, Radar claimed that Kim offered Kris Humphries $10 million to just go away and play with his basketball and leave her the hell alone. I’m sure that went well.

Kim Kardashian offered her estranged husband, Kris Humphries, a cool $10 million in a desperate bid to settle their bitter divorce battle once and for all — but he turned her down flat — RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“After Kim filed for divorce, she offered Kris a $10 million payoff, with the agreement that he would not continue to pursue an annulment to their marriage on the grounds of fraud,” a source close to the situation tells Radar exclusively.

Kim’s rep told RadarOnline.com: “This is obviously yet another inaccurate report that lacks facts. No such deal was ever made.”

Unfortunately for Kim though, money didn’t sway the NBA star, and he vowed to stick to his guns and prove in a court of law that their short-lived marriage was a sham.

“Kris flatly rejected the offer because it has never been about money for him,” the source says. “He wants to be able to marry in a church again, with a clear conscience, when he finds someone special. Kris is deeply religious and he believes that the only way he can do that is if his marriage to Kim is annulled.

“Kris wants to move on with his life just as badly as Kim does – he is constantly getting heckled by NBA players and fans – and he just wants to be able to close this disastrous chapter in his life once and for all. If Kim would just agree to grant him the annulment, they could both move on with their lives.”

As it stands though, the earliest their divorce trial can be scheduled to begin is the middle of June in order to accommodate Kris’ busy basketball schedule. So, Kim will likely still be married to Humphries, her second husband, when she gives birth to her new boyfriend Kanye West‘s baby in early July.

Reports circulated recently that Kris demanded a $10 million payment from Kim to grant her a divorce, but the source tells Radar that is categorically not true.

“That absolutely never happened.,” the source vows. “Kris has given a sworn declaration that he has never asked Kim for a single dime. The only thing he has asked for, and continues to ask for, is for her to agree to an annulment.”

[From Radar]

“Kris wants to move on with his life just as badly as Kim does…” BS. “Kris has given a sworn declaration that he has never asked Kim for a single dime.” Double BS. The whole point of holding the divorce hostage from Kris’s perspective is that if Kris gets his annulment, the pre-nup and confidentiality clauses are moot, so he can get more money for selling Kim out, plus he’ll probably sue her for lost earnings (profits from selling their wedding). For Kris, it’s about staying in her life and making her “pay” for leaving him both financially and psychologically. I keep saying, this guy is a total d-bag. But! Shortly after that report from Radar, TMZ had an interesting follow-up/denial:

Kim Kardashian has drawn a hard line in the sand … not only is she refusing to pay Kris Humphries a dime … she’s demanding he cover ALL of her attorney’s fees … sources connected to the case tell TMZ.

TMZ first reported … Kris demanded $7 MILLION to walk away from their marriage … but Kim told him to pound sand. Contrary to recent reports, Kim has never offered Kris a penny to settle the divorce case.

We know … Kim’s position has always been that Kris actually MADE money by marrying her and therefore she doesn’t owe him anything. But now, our sources say, Kim feels Kris has needlessly dragged this on for so long and it cost her so much $$$ in legal fees and other expenses … she wants the NBA star to cover those costs.

Sources tell us … Kim’s fees have ballooned to around $250,000 … and Kris has spent somewhere in the same neighborhood. And our sources say … Kim is more than happy to try the case before a judge, because she’s convinced she’ll win the divorce and he’ll walk away owing her.

[From TMZ]

I do tend to think that Kim is going to walk away, when all is said and done, with more than Kris thinks. I just don’t believe he has the strong legal position he seems to think he has – he wasn’t forced into marrying her. He wasn’t forced into proposing. He was just the nearest idiot around when Kim wanted to get married (by the time she was 30). Maybe it was “fraud” in the ethical or moral sense, but not the legal or criminal sense.

    Why is she wearing a dead bird?

  2. lexy says:

    hahahahha he is deeply religious?

    • L says:

      @ lexy-seriously this was my reaction to. REALLY? Deeply religious?

      Also, someone needs to tell him that a legal annulment is not the same as a church annulment. Did they even have a religious ceremony?

      • Girlattorney says:

        Seriously. I don’t understand what this brouhaha is about getting a court annulment. Assuming he’s Roman Catholic, he can pursue the whole annulment business through the church AFTER they get divorced.

        I myself was granted an annulment from the Church something like five years after my actual divorce — in fact, I was already remarried at the time! (Which sets into motion a whole other set of Catholic rituals that are probably not of too much interest here.) And it’s not like this is a new concept: my great-grandmother got a legal divorce followed by a church annulment back in the 1920s.

      • Sassy says:

        Don’t you have to be married in a Catholic Ceremony in order to have a marriage annulled in the Catholic Church? As I dimly remember the rules. If they were not married in the Catholic Church, they are not married, and there is nothing to annull. He is seeking a civil anullment, right?

      • Amelia says:

        Sassy, the Catholic Church recognizes other religions’ marriages and will annul those. For example, I was married to my ex in an Episcopal ceremony. My husband married his ex in a Presbyterian service. When I converted to Catholicism, I had to have my marriage annulled and my husband, been though he was NOT converting, had to have his first marriage annulled. We were then remarried in the Catholic Church. It was a little strange but there is a method to their madness.

    • nikko says:

      Kris H very religious my a**. I don’t know why she married him, he was a jerk on the show. And that’s what he’s missing is the perks he got from being married to her. He needs to quit being the douchebag for 5 minutes and get out of the marriage. It doesn’t make him look good at all. Kanye and Kim look cute and happy.

  3. LadyLupton says:

    God, that’s an unfortunate dress.

  4. Green is Good says:

    I hope Kris Humpries screws her to the legal wall.

    • Lori M. says:

      Me too. I’d just like to know why Kris found time months ago to give his deposition, yet Kim is way too busy to give hers? Kim cannot find the time for her deposition but can go shopping in Paris, date Kanye, have another mans baby, etc.

    • MW says:

      I think Kris H. is plenty justified, legally, to get a divorce on the grounds of fraud. He thought she was to marry him and be with him till death parted them, and she appears to have married for ratings and money. And kept the wedding gift Lamborghini for her efforts. Plus, the Krew is not cooperating with discovery, depositions, etc., as you said, which makes it appear that they are tying to hide the true facts of their little scam. Kim asking for money, and attorney fees after dumping him and then causing him this much trouble and embarrassment, is appalling to me. Maybe Kanye (Kanye?????) will talk some sense into the entitled Ms. Kardashian, and her equally self-absorbed, sneaky Mother. The Kardashians are the ones in the wrong here. IMHO.

      • BestJes says:

        “appears” being the important word here. I doubt very much Kris can provider any evidence to show this was fraud in the legal sense. It is not fraud to get caught up in a massive circus and realize after a wedding that youve made a mistake. Stupid people do that all the time. He would have to prove that she deliberately got married for no other reason than ratings & cash yet led him to believe it was all true love. How the hell is he going to do that?

  5. emmie_a says:

    Why is she wearing a feather gown to go shopping?? Is she really so desperate for attention that she needs to wear that? Sad & tacky but I guess that’s the norm with her.

  6. Lishka says:

    Hmmm, I dunno. Kim seems full of ish too, so I am not sure why you find his story so hard to believe. He may be an idiot, but if all it would take for her to get him out of her life was to admit the whole marriage thing was a sham, well, she is making his future hopes of marrying in a church…hell.

    You know why she will not agree to an annulment? Because then it makes her look like a liar and a scam artist…ooooh, heavens, nooooo! Not Kimmy Kakes!

    A liar? Her?

    *SMH* Sorry CB, but someone has been feeding you the Kimmy KoolAid. She would not do anything to jeopardize her fortune or her “brand” and so she would even be willing to over a 10 mil payout or even go so far as to have another mans baby while married to KH, all so she doesn’t mess with her Kartrashian empire!

    • nofkksgiven says:

      How is it a scam? Is Kris H totally oblivious? How did strangers at home/viewers throughout America know the marriage was fake but he didn’t? How was he forced to participate? How was he tricked…Kim already had the sex tape out, had already been on reality tv for years….realistically, what did he think he was getting in to? How was he defrauded? I understand the Kim hate but Kris H is a grown ass man…he knew better and now he just looks pressed.

      • Veruca says:

        Regardless of whether or not it was a scam, why should Kim (and the rest of the scum) get to keep all of the money?

        Hasn’t this waste of flesh been rewarded enough? Right or wrong, I hope he makes her life a living hell.

        That family is the worst.

      • LAK says:

        Let’s assume for a moment that the show is real rather than staged for profit…..

        1. Kris found out about the sex tape only a couple of months before the wedding and seemed truly shocked.

        2. I accidentally watched an episode where they went to a resort for a family holiday. Kim was such a spoilt princess who seemed to need a lot of babying. Kris was flabbergasted the entire time with her behaviour but kept saying if he made stuff right for her ie gave in to her demands, all would be well and the holiday would go smoothly.

        3. An episode before the wedding, he expressed desire to call it off BUT Bruce talked him out of it, calling it wedding jitters or something.

        Based upon those 3 episodes, and the fact Kim was caught out filming new scenes to support her divorce POV, it isn’t too far fetched to see how he could have truly be led up the garden path hoping all the way that it was genuine.

        Not to mention the several magazine covers deliberately painting him in a bad lightin the weeks between wedding and divorce.

      • nofkksgiven says:

        Veruca…fo real?, “waste of flesh”?…get yourself together

        Lak..so basically you are going to go off what was presented to you by the Kardashians on their heavily edited show as opposed to your own common sense…the fact that Kris H tried to act like he didn’t know the tape existed should let you know right there if there was a scam he was in on it. How did he not know? He never googled her before he signed contracts and agreed to be on her television show? No one from E mentioned anything? He was sooooo deeply involved with the production, family, etc but knew nothing of what most of America already knew about her that she had a tape??? Be serious….I wouldn’t be surprised if this was all apart of the plot as well but if anything, Kris is mad his name/reputation is ruined. That can’t be rebuilt.

      • Asiyah says:

        If strangers in their own homes knew the relationship was fake no viewers would have been surprised with the rapid divorce. If strangers in their own homes knew this was a sham they wouldn’t have watched the wedding and the couple wouldn’t have gotten all of those endorsements. So it’s possible that Kris was deceived.

      • lena80 says:

        LOL at accidentally watching the show.

      • LAK says:

        nofkksgiven – perhaps you missed the part where i started my post with…’let’s assume it is real, RATHER THAN STAGED FOR PROFIT’

        …..meaning i firmly believe the whole thing is staged for profit.

        Now let’s extrapolate these 3 episodes if you were a famewhore dependent on public opinion and sponsors and you were trying to establish yourself as the innocent party who needs an annulment…..Those 3 episodes are evidence that perhaps he wasn’t entirely on board with the charade. [which makes him a convincing actor]

        Then you have the Klan trashing him nearly every week after the wedding to all the magazines they have deals with. You would have to be an idiot NOT to smell a rat where Klan was trying to paint him out of the picture by smearing him [we'll never know the truth because none of these people ever tells the truth], or that something HUGE was up. A few weeks later, she filed for divorce hoping the trash job had done it’s work. How does he extricate himself from this mess with the little dignity he may still have? What if he counted the money she kept vs what he was paid for the charade. How to kill 2 birds with one stone? Play the injured party. People will remember all those seemingly random instances. And by sticking to his annulment guns, the Klan stop trashing him because it just makes them look bad.

        @lena80 – you come in late at night, tired, perhaps alittle drunk, can’t quite go to sleep, so you turn on the TV, search for any channel that is still broadcasting and vegetate infront of it for maybe an hour at the end of which you wonder what that whining crap you were watching. kick your brain into gear and realise that you just watched an episode of KUWTK, double check the programme info and yes, the you definitely unintentionally did. that’s how one ends up ‘accidentally’ watching this crap.

      • lena80 says:

        Lak, I just found it funny cause you gave a breakdown of three episodes and while I doubt the other two episodes you reviewed were accidents as well, nothing you described was false…I just found it funny because you seem like a fan, but maybe just as far as picking apart the show??? I just found it funny that’s all.

  7. Agnes says:

    what do these two talk about when they’re not shopping? what could she possibly have to say that’s even remotely interesting? (at least kanye could talk about music, i guess?) oh, to be a fly on the wall, for the sheer curiosity of it.

    • dagdag says:

      I watched her and Kourtney on the late Letterman show. She has nothing to say unless it is about her, choice of words is very limited. I wanted to be the fly on the wall when she attended a late dinner with some people of the fashion world just recently.

  8. DanaG says:

    Someone needs to tell big bird Kim is wearing his cousin. Why is she so overdressed to go shopping? Guess someone wants even more attention because getting pregnant and hanging out with Kanye just isn’t enough.

  9. MsAubra says:

    Of course he never ASKED for money, doesn’t mean he wasn’t OFFERED it! Slick play on words FAIL!!!

  10. Iggles says:

    Nope, the marriage was a fraud. Going into it, Kris stupidly thought it was going to be a real marriage. Kim was only in it to cash in the wedding and promote herself.

    Fraud. They should get an annulment. Renee Zellwinger was able to annul her marriage to Kenny Chesnut on the grounds of deception. Different circumstances but there was deception in Kim/Kris as well.

    • anotherrandom says:

      I disagree that it was fraud. I am with Kaiser and think that Kim was just so dead set on being married by a certain time that she just settled with the nearest idiot to propose. I think after the glitz and fun of the wedding, when it was time for marriage, she realized the work involved and wanted out. Maybe I’m just old, but I’ve seen girls like that. They want the white dress and church and party so bad, they fail to think that they’re actually entering into a legal agreement to join themselves to another person. Those marriages usually break up within a year.

      As for Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellweger, she even said that they chose fraud because it seemed the least hurtful or something like that. That to me says that they should not have been given an annulment, but I guess they managed to prove fraud.

      • Nina W says:

        I doubt it was fraud in the legal sense but when you make a supposed lifelong vow to a person they have a right to be pissed at you when you reneg on it after 72 days. Kim should give him the annulment, it’s ridiculous not to, and I don’t feel an ounce of pity for her. She has behaved atrociously and deserves whatever punishment she gets.

  11. Mew says:

    “to grant her a divorce” what kind of medieval thing this is, not being able to divorce when wanted? I would understand if it was a dispute of contract but to “grant a divorce”? Divorce should be granted by for example a judge and it shouldn’t be more complicated than getting papers stamped after a period of time, say, half a year. No reasons needed.

    • Meredith says:

      That’s the way it is in Canada. If you have been apart for more than 12 months, the court must grant a divorce. The other issues – property, support – can keep going but you can get the divorce as long as you can prove you’ve been apart for 12 months. Most people divorcing take this option because the other choices are cruelty or adultery which must be acknowledged or proven in a trial.

      • MGray says:

        In New Zealand the only reason for divorce is irreconcilable differences, but you have to be separated for 2 years before you can even file for divorce (which then takes about 6 weeks). I think its designed so that people don’t treat marriage frivolously, however you don’t actually find this out until you’re trying to get divorced.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        In CA, a “no fault” state (like our auto insurance), the only “cause” for divorce is “Irreconcilable Differences,” and if there is PROOF that lives/assets/bank accounts/etc… were separated for at least six (6) months prior to said separation/divorce, that counts for something. Also (fun fact!), you can file for Separation AND Divorce in the same motion (to avoid those pesky $300+ filing fees), unless the rules have changed lately.

        Bottom line is, if there’s “no contest” to custody, money, etc…said divorce will be finalised in 6 months.

    • LAK says:

      True, BUT isn’t that only if the divorce is uncontested? This one has been contested from inception. One party is refusing to be divorced and wants an annulment. I am assuming once trial happens to establish grounds for annulment happens, should Kris lose, the divorce will be rubber stamped because it’s more than well documented that they have been separated for years now.

      Is there a divorce lawyeron CB who could shed some light on this?

      • Nina W says:

        I don’t think the court cares about the living arrangements. All they care about is if they have legal jurisdiction, if the appropriate forms are filed (and fees paid) and resolving matters of community property and child custody. The only hang up is the dispute over divorce vs annulment. KK is scared to lose even a penny and she thinks an annulment opens her up to having to pony up cash to KH.

  12. Micah says:

    Inflated, silicone injected, feather dusted Buffoon.

  13. Doublesteff says:

    I’m not a fan of this whole mess. I completely agree with Kaiser. She’s no angel but I’m calling major BS that this boy (Kris) and the battle he is waging has anything at all to do with his ‘religious beliefs’. As far as this harming a ‘brand’… Well, we all know how her ‘brand’ got started. It’s not like it could get much lower than that so everything that comes after that has and will be gravy. If Kris really gave a rats a$$ about moving on and away from this unfortunate chapter in his life, he’d turn the page. No matter how much everyone around tries to turn it for him, he refuses to let that page be turned and the new chapter to begin. Kris, as a “deeply religious” man, now would be a good time to show exactly how spiritual you are, turn the other cheek, forgive, forget, and let go. BUH-BYE now. Run along.

  14. Faye says:

    I doubt very much Kris is “deeply religious,” or he wouldn’t have married Kim Kardashian in the first place. But I honestly don’t think he is quite the villian you paint him to be. I think he’s criminally stupid, for sure, but that he believed Kim wanted a real marriage. While I don’t believe she wanted anything other than a publicity stunt and ratings for her show.

    When all is said and done, I think he should be granted the annulment, but that he shouldn’t be allowed to sue her for fraud or sell their story. I don’t if there’s a way to make that happen legally but if there is, he should.

  15. Dawn says:

    Yes she offered him what would turn her head and that is money and he said NO. He doesn’t want a divorce because divorce indicates marriage. They never had one. They had a wedding that was a scripted television show but they never had a marriage. Get over yourself Kim and give him his annulment. Admit it was a farce and take the few lumps you will get. The people who strongly dislike you already have your number and your fans don’t care who you do or how you do it, so truly you have nothing to lose. Again she has the chance to do the right thing but she won’t. What a complet POS she and Kayne are. Shame on Americans for making this whorish vapid fame whore millions.

  16. jwoolman says:

    I think you’re underestimating Midwestern boys… Seriously, though, he’s unlikely to be the type to run around the talk show circuit collecting big bucks trashing Kim. That’s Hollywood thinking. He wants the truth to come out but from her lips, not his. And he already has loads of money, not just from basketball – he doesn’t spend it fast.

    Meanwhile, Kim has been merrily smearing him every way she can – have you seen bits from the latest fake reality show?!? She’s even concocted scenes months after the fact to fit her spin. The K’s keep feeding weird stories to the tabloids with the same theme. Remember when they tried a fake event with her BFF, with somebody showing up in a basketball uniform to toss something harmless at the guy (was it flour? I forget), to make us believe it was tied to Humphries somehow? When that was laughed out of the tabloids as impossibly improbable, we soon saw another improbable (“how do I doubt thee, let me count the ways”) flour-tossing event directly involving a preternaturally calm Kimmie. It got lost in all the fur furor, but they initially tried to put some “revenge for Humphries” talk in the flour-tosser’s mouth also. We hardly hear a peep out of him in contrast, and it can’t all be covered by a confidentiality agreement. Since the Kardashians have been making so much noise and spinning so many tales from whole cloth while he has just been quietly preparing for court – I have to think that they’ve got lots to hide (and distract from) but he doesn’t. Looks to me that they’ve been trying to wear him down only because he didn’t roll over and play dead as planned – and couldn’t be bought off. Maybe the thing they’re really afraid of is the financial disclosure required.

    I just don’t find it so hard to believe that he really wants to wipe out the whole sad 72 day experience with an annulment so he will not be a divorced guy but rather just a snookered guy who is free and clear to really marry a life mate some day. Maybe that doesn’t matter to you, but it certainly does matter to quite a few people out here far, far away from Hollywood. He brought out his hometown pastor to officiate at the wedding, he had his sister in the wedding, the guy was serious about it being a forever deal. It’s not that divorce never happens in his world (even his parents finally broke up), but nobody seriously throws in the towel after just 72 days, with no attempt to actually work out problems and learn to live together. Kim treated him like a discarded toy, not a husband. She didn’t even bother telling him she was filing for divorce or try any kind of counseling. It was ridiculous.

    So he was stupid to think Kim was the one- but she put on quite the act for him. We know she lies as easily as breathing, my guess is that she lied to him about some pretty important things and that’s why he acted increasingly shell-shocked in that idiotic show as she casually revealed more and more things that were just the opposite of what she had said prior to the wedding. I think he really did expect to build a family with her, and that she would happily give up the shallow pleasures of the admittedly limited-term tv fame and the modeling life for deeper happiness back in Minnesota with him and a bunch of kids. And I think he believed that because at one time, she told him so. Good grief, the woman even did bible study with the guy… How un-Kimmie can you get?

    • Jamie says:

      Absolutely agree with you! This poor guy was played for a fool and wants to wipe the slate clean. Give him the annulment.

    • Dawn says:

      Amen sister. This woman has absolutely no morals, not a one and so it is hard for her (and apparently her fans) when someone else does have morals to understand that it isn’t always about money. But very well said nonetheless.

    • The Original Mia says:

      Well said!

      I’m not sure why Kris is a jerk for wanting an annulment. Why isn’t Kimmy Kakes a jerk for dragging this out? She’s about to become a mother and she’s still holding on to something that didn’t last 3 months. Let him go & move on!

    • Cats says:

      I completely agree. I’m amazed at how willing people are to dismiss the “annulment thing”. Annulment is a very big deal to anyone who is in any way religious (and I’m not at all) and I can completely understand why that is all that he wants. You don’t have to be some exceptionally clean-living puritan to want the right to get married in your church, and again I’m saying this as a married person who is not religious at all and did not have a church ceremony.
      I’m not surprised he doesn’t want to have the right to marry in his church stolen from him by this farce.

      • Meredith says:

        The way I see KH’s position over the annulment is that he loved her (why?), believed she loved him, wanted to get married, etc. Whereas Kim duped him into believing this when it was only ever a money making scheme where she would bolt after a few months of over the top publicity, money from the wedding TV show, etc.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        A legal annulment is different from a religious annulment. You can be granted a divorce and still receive a religious annulment and then be free to marry in your church. So if he’s claiming that he only wants the annulment to be able to remarry free and clear in the eyes of his church, then he’s looking at the wrong annulment.

      • JL says:

        Deeply religious?

        Didn’t he have some woman yelling baby daddy right after thier divorce?

        What church do these people attend?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Everything you said. And you said it so well!!

      I don’t believe (for a second!) he wants an annulment for $$$ reasons. I believe he really WAS duped, is upset about it, and wants to move on from this media disaster. But superficial, over-exposed, marketed-to-death Lardassian is UNWILLING to let that happen, because it would mean admitting to what (we all know) she is: A FRAUD.

    • Relli says:

      PREACH! Nothing but admiration over here, well stated!!!

    • Lady D says:

      She should offer him his annulment and have them both sign confidentiality contracts stating they and their families never mention each other’s names again. Especially her family, because they have a TV show. Easy-peasey. Also, give him his ring back you money worshipping, phony pile of bird moultings.

    • Asiyah says:

      Excellent points, jwoolman! I don’t know if Kim was raised Armenian Orthodox or not, and if she was, the fact that they were married by Kris’s pastor from back home means that it wasn’t officiated by the Armenian church, meaning that he was/is more religious than we believe. I don’t care about his religiosity, but that shows that he really believed in that relationship AND (if she is orthodox) that she pretended to be really into him by marrying through his religion, adding to more of the fraud claims.

  17. Elceibeno says:

    LOL that dress is so funny. How many ostriches it took to make that dress.?

  18. Jayna says:

    The marriage was an absolute fraud. Right after the wedding she wouldn’t let him move a box into her home. She moves them into a suite shared with other people after their wedding for their show. Like Kanye would allow that nonsense. Kris was a pawn. She made a fortune off the wedding. Offering him ten million says it all.

  19. BRE says:

    In the end, I think it will be a good thing that Kris dragged out the divorce because Kim can’t just jump into another marriage. I doubt she will end up staying with Kanye anyway, she rushes into these things when everything is still new and shiny.

    why do these celebrities always smile so wide and act like their having such a good time,(first two pics) and it loks so fake. (Leann Rimes is the worst) Just act like a normal person walking out of a restuarant, not overly mad, not overly happy.. just normal. Its hard to imaging they are laughing and jolly and sharing private jokes when there is a million paparazzi flashing bulbs in your face and your trying to pose all at the same time. So DUMB:)!!!

  21. Marty says:

    Is it just me or does her face look “off” in these pictures?

  22. T.C. says:

    Kris doesn’t want to make money off her he wants to out her as a fraud. As for Kanye spending all this money on her some guys go overboard when a woman is about to give birth to their first born. Kim should consider herself lucky.

  23. joan says:

    does anyone still remeber the article the new york post wrote about a year ago when the said the kardashian empire was krumbling,that the kardashians were losing ratings and that the family was being black listed from event and forbes and the kardashians became all defensive???well,if you read through the article and look at the recent state of the kardashians,you wil tend to notice that everything the said is so so true.kuwtk had low ratings,kktm has terrible ratings,british fans are disappointed in their kollection and also a slew of negative press.kim got pregnant and hooked up with kanye mto preserve the brand but even with her pregnancy news and kanyes constant appearance on kktm and kuwtk their ratings continued to drop.the kardashians are on their way out and kanye cant even save them,like the new york post said,its just a matter of time.

  24. Jennika says:

    Everyone knows it was fraud. Everyone knows that Kim and that family are lying, thiefing, vile, disgusting sub-humans. I can’t wait until she’s forced to give him the annulment and she gets shunned worse that lance armstrong.

  25. Relli says:

    Huh? Thats a lot of bs and d-bagging straight off in the AM.

  26. Abigail says:

    If he was so “deeply religious,” perhaps he would know that there is a difference between a church annulment and a legal annulment of marriage. One is not in any way tied to the other. Getting a legal annulment of marriage does not automatically grant a church annulment and vice versa. I know several people who have pursued one without the other.

  27. Cirque28 says:

    Not that I have any regard for Kim K, but Betty Broderick Humphries there is starting to look like a vengeful weirdo. I know, I know– she doesn’t want him anymore, she didn’t give their ridiculous TV marriage a fair chance, and it’s just not fair. But that’s life, oh well. The statute of limitations for his outrage over this incredibly brief period of his life has expired.

    • Dawn says:

      Ummm…where in god’s name are you getting that? They have no children and as far as I know he pretty much stays as far away from that stench as possible. Betty killed two people in cold blood. All KH is asking for is an annunlment and the acknowledgment that she knew when saying her vows she DID NOT want to be married. Nothing too hard about it.

      • Cirque28 says:

        It was a joke b/c Humphries, like Broderick, is attached like a lead weight to his ex’s ankle. Tasteless, yes. Serious, no.

        AFAIK, we only know rumors of what he’s demanding, what she’s offered, etc. But we do know they’re still married. Although I think he’s probably right, Humphries is taking it way too far. At some point, you really are just hurting yourself, so I say let the stupid marriage die already and move on. Besides, KK gets to watch Kanye gaze at himself in a mirror for the next 12-18 months until their thing goes bust, and that should be enough punishment for anyone.

        Also, Humpy annoys me for making me feel the tiniest twinge of sympathy for this ridiculous bitch.

      • Nina W says:

        Sympathy? For KK? She’s the architect of the entire situation; she gets no sympathy and deserves none. She was manipulative and cruel and now she has to deal with the consequences.

  28. swack says:

    I’m sure that if she wanted to they could work out a deal where Kris H gets the annulment and the prenup holds (resign it or make new one that would include a confidentiality clause). I agree with one poster that states that Kris H would not be one to go on talk shows and to the media to blab things. The only time now that he is mentioned is when there is a story about the Kardashians. As far as “buying” gifts for Kim – go for it. Doesn’t really show love. Think this is about the first time I have really seen Kanye smile when he is with Kim. The second picture of him smiling looks like a fake smile and in all the others he looks angry or upset or something.

  29. Mayday says:

    And people say that GAYS are ruining the “sanctity of marriage”?

    What a joke these people people are.

  30. sunnyinseattle says:

    I think she is wearing horrible outfits (not that it is anythinhg new ha) to hide her baby bump. That way she can sell photos to a magazine before anyone reallly sees it. She gets more money that way! It is all about the dollar signs to her. :-(

  31. Layale says:

    I agree: the dress is hideous! In addition, I wish both Kim and Kanye would move to Iran or something. I wish I never had to see or hear about either one of them again in my lifetime.

  32. the original bellaluna says:

    I believe Michael K (God love him!) described that look as “a water buffalo eating a swan.”

    And my MIL thinks I lack style! :D

  33. Ms Kay says:

    To the contrary Kaiser he has quite a strong position, otherwise knowing the lengths Kim K is capable to go to to keep her image up, she would’ve found a way, any dirt possible to get and hold something major against him to coerce Kris to divorce her in a heartbeat. But so far nothing happening, speaks for itself that she is holding onto her dear image life.

    And when that baby is born, it’s going to be Kris H legal child so Kanye is the one who is going to ask Kris permission to have his name on the birth certificate… Talking about a mess!

    I think that somewhere down the wedding road Kris and Kim had a deal but the idiotic bitch broke that deal sooner than expected so Kris asks for an annulment… But then again it’s a very simplistic vision I’m giving here.

  34. anon says:

    IM not a fan of either Kim or Kris as both are guilty of fraud. Do an accounting of money & gifts, pay your own legal expenses from it & split what is left.

    Both must agree on accounting firm used also.

    If there is nothing to hide the annulment can be granted & no tales to tell..lol..

    TO me it’s not about money as such but the tales that can be told that is what is the biggey for this marriage to end. Kris seems willing to go with it & K’s not. That says a lot.

  35. Persnickety says:

    What I’d give to see a picture of this twit walking out of a Parisian MUSEUM. Imagine being in that fabulous city and only shopping. Such shallowness and self-absorption. Boring!

  36. bagladey says:

    I don’t see a baby fitting in here at all.

  37. lylaooooo says:

    SHE LOOKS LIKE A PIÑATA! UUUGGHH

  38. LeeLoo says:

    Here’s what I don’t get. Why doesn’t Kim offer him an annulment if he agrees to sign a modified confidentiality agreement? If the rumors are true, Kim has been willing to give him an annulment but pimp mama won’t allow it due to the fact it could open up lawsuits from sponsors of the wedding. Is there a way to get an annulment based on fraud without either party willing to admit that they were the fraudulent party?

    At the same time, K-Hump does need to get his head out of his @$$ and be willing to meet Kim halfway. This has gone on long enough.

    • Ms Kay says:

      It wouldn’t exactly save a lot of trouble but if she did that annulment, it would mean the prenup would be void and Kris would be now able to talk about their sham of a marriage. Kim K is trying to keep his lips sealed and her fortune to herself, hell she is so greedy she won’t give him the engagement ring back, for someone claiming she wants nothing to do with Kris anymore and move on. She is positioning the situation as if Kris is trying to make it difficult for her and play the victim card but truth is it’s also her own fault that she got herself into this situation. She thinks money will give her an easy way out for using that guy and then throw money on the table like he’s some piece of garbage she can shut up, but too bad it’s not going as planned. Kris might be d-bag but he is just outsmarted her on that one.

      That no man of a Kanye I can only wish him good luck, because he’s embroiled himself into a mess. His child is going to legally have Kris H. name.

  39. erika says:

    I love it. Go Humphries. I know he’s a cave man but I really like how he’s standing his ground. it’s driving KK crazeee!!!

    You know what your problem is KK? You don’t slow down to a normal pace in life you just have to dive brainless head in first. You rush to love, you rush to sex, babies, marriage, divorce, sex tape, babies, sex, marriage, divorce, kitty owner, love, sex, divorce, marriage.

    She deserves this. i really do think the marriage was a sham. Look it how the play the media, whatever happened to Kris’/Bruce drama?…..(crickets)……

    I bet you she was in ‘lurve’ with Kanye all these years but along came Hump, oh well, she thought, at least i can play him, she had her doubts on marriage before but rushed in cuz front pages of mags were waiting and here we go…

    still married, but having another man’s baby all w/in what…a year???

    I wanna hear KK’s secrets, keep holding Hump, we want a TELL ALL

  40. JL says:

    I call BS on Kris Humphries; you can get an annullment AFTER a divorce. I got one YEARS after I was divorced.
    So what’s the issue, it’s not an annullment, he’s just looking like a spiteful fool dragging this out.
    Also, annullments are granted for numerous reasons and he should have no issues gettng one – so???? Male ego, hurt feelings, press coverage? He’s the one keeping it going – why?

    Also where in the world does K-Hump think he’s going to find a woman that doesn’t know he was with Kim, annullment or not it happened and there is no denying it.

    • Amelia says:

      JL you can get a religious annulment after a divorce, not a legal one. Kris is seeking a legal annulment…two very different things.

      Also, while religious annulments can be given for a variety of reasons, legal annulments are generally only given on the grounds of fraud. So Kris is using the only option available to him.

      Here’s how I see it. I think Kris (stupidly) thought this was a real marriage. I think he believes Kim never did and that it was all for cameras and ratings. If Kris can show that, he can indeed prove fraud.

      From what I’ve seen of Kim’s behavior, I agree with Kris, and I hope he gets his annulment. Then his next marriage will legally be his first marriage, which is a huge deal for a lot of people.

    • Nina W says:

      And if it’s no big deal, why won’t KK give him the annulment? She is the one dragging things out. She screwed him over very publicly and instead of giving him the one thing he wants from her, they’re going to court.

  41. Jill says:

    I think his heart was in it but her heart was on ratings. I mean she couldnt wait to get a divorce before she got knocked up by a rapper. Was it like….it’s now or never so I better get pregnant this instant? I have no respect for this woman. Her choices seem to be bad all around.

  42. Viktory Gin says:

    Okay. This is probably not going to be a popular comment but here goes:

    Kris H is a f*cking idiot.

    So many posters are placating him like he was naive innocent duped because he was unaware of the ways of the world. He wasn’t some blushing, 16-year old, 18th century bride fresh out of the convent. KK was a woman whose reputation preceded her…by light years. What about her suggested to him
    yeah she’d make a really great self-sacrificing
    mom willing to give up her jet-setting fame-slitting to raise a brood of kids in relative obscurity. Maybe it was the way that she strategically trivializes her own sisters to
    increase the scope of her own brand name. Maybe it was her perpetual lying, er…embellishing, she does about every sector of her life in order micro-manage every aspect of her image. Maybe it’s the way she acts like a queen holding court every time a camera flashes. Or just maybe it was the tape of her f*cking a dude on camera to get famous in the first place. I don’t like KK, but I HATE stupidity. And just for his gross foolishness, he deserves to be raked over the coals. Even Reggie Bush got hip to this b*tch’s game and made himself scarce. Though dubious, she is an international celebrity at this point (and was when married her) and he was too stupid to realize that she doesn’t possess the magnanimity to settle down with barely no-name, midwestern yokel ball player.

    Let this be a lesson, Kris.

  43. Nev says:

    Wow. That was a very objective and I think accurate assessment if the whole drama.

  44. Asiyah says:

    The only reason why money is even a factor here is because Kris knows just how materialistic and money-hungry Kim is and he wants to hit her where it hurts. His aim is to destroy her by any means necessary. That doesn’t sound very religious to me, but I’m not in his shoes.

    And there are various reports that before “settling” for Kris, Kim was going around town trying to find a guy to woo for her show. Several sources reported this. That can aid in the fraud case because Kris can say that her intentions weren’t pure and they were purely for entertainment purposes. His case is not as weak as some might think (though not as strong as many Kardashian-haters wish).

  45. palermo says:

    He doesn’t strike me as being particularly brilliant, but I am still on his side. I think he did want to have a “real” marriage, but she never did. She hated his dogs, refused to move into his house or let him move into hers. She was travelling almost the whole time they were married, plus they lived with Kourtney and Scott, why was that necessary. She told him she wanted to get pregnant but then was still on the pill. I believe Kim would gladly do anything to end this but Pimp Mama won’t let her cause it’s always always always about her and her ten percent.

  46. Jane says:

    Jesus…was she channeling Bjork from the Oscar show years ago wearing that blooming get-up? WTF?

  47. Kat says:

    Lord help me, I like her shoes. :O

  48. kristiner says:

    THIS is how a hipty-large bust woman looks when really pregnant. Beyonce was never busty but she has LOTS of ass and hips and I’m sure Kim doesn’t eat junk food.

    This is a REAL gestation from the biological mother. Not that pillow puppet baby Beyonce was trying to push.

  49. Dirty Martini says:

    ROFL at what a sweet mess this all is.

    That dress is rich.
    So is Kim.

    Pay Kris and pay him big…

    because ain’t nothing tackier than giving birth to one man’s child while you are still marrie to another man.

  50. lbeees says:

    (1) “Deeply religious”? Wants to marry in a church with a “clean conscience”? Who the eff is this guy, Henry VIII?

    (2) It’s not lost earnings if he’s suing for profits derived from their wedding. That’s equitable compensation. Lost earnings would be if he, say, quit the NBA because Kim said she’d be his baby-momma fo’ life and he shouldn’t work anymore.

    (3) This whole thing is ridiculous.

  51. Amelia says:

    You can get a religious annulment after a divorce, but unot a legal annulment. Kris is seeking a legal annulment…two very different things.

    Also, while religious annulments can be given for a variety of reasons, legal annulments are generally only given on the grounds of fraud. So Kris is using the only option available to him.

    Here’s how I see it. I think Kris (stupidly) thought this was a real marriage. I think he believes Kim never did and that it was all for cameras and ratings. If Kris can show that, he can indeed prove fraud.

    From what I’ve seen of Kim’s behavior, I agree with Kris, and I hope he gets his annulment. Then his next marriage will legally be his first marriage, which is a huge deal for a lot of people.

    The whole thing is twisted. Unless Kim wants Kris Humphries to be the legal dad when her kid is born she ought to put on her big girl panties and give Kris the annulment and move on with her life.

  52. Caroline says:

    She’s pretty (manufactured or not) and should really wear less bronzer..or makeup in general.
