KRIS HUMPHRIES Suing Kim for Emotional Distress Is Only Option to Score $$$

Photo from:

Kris Humphries will not get any money by fighting Kim Kardashian’s attempt to divorce him — but if he really wants to fight, there is something he can do to try and score millions from KK.

Sources directly connected with both Kris and Kim tell TMZ … there is no point in challenging the prenup — it’s iron-clad and both sides know it. Fact is, if Kris gets his way and has the marriage annulled based on fraud, that would mean there was never a marriage and as a result he would have NO CLAIM to any of Kim’s earnings during their 72 days of bliss because no marriage would have existed.

We’ve poked around and asked some experts what Kris might be able to do to score some cash, if he really wanted to do that. The only plausible scenario is if Kris files a claim against Kim for intentional infliction of emotional distress based on fraud. If he could prove Kim used him as a disposable groom for her reality show — he could get monetary damages.

So, you ask, what would his monetary damages be? Well how ’bout this? If Kris sucks during the lockout shortened BBall season and gets cut from the Nets — which is a possibility — he could blame the distractions on his disastrous marriage and try to sock Kim for the money he’d be out. Kris pulls in $3.2 mil a year.

Here’s the deal. We know Kris is really hurt and feels he was used by Kim. The question — does he have the stomach to sue her in civil court. And there’s this — the likelihood of Kris winning is about as great as Harvey Levin replacing him on the Nets.

Kim K doesn’t want ‘a battle’ with Kris Humphries

Kim Kardashian doesn’t want “a battle” with Kris Humphries.
The reality TV star filed for divorce from the basketball player after just 72 days of marriage in October, but this week the sportsman made an application to have their union annulled on Wednesday, and while the socialite is “upset” by her estranged spouse’s move, she is hoping they can resolve things.
A source told People magazine: “The filing is, of course, upsetting. She respects Kris and just wants them both to find peace and move on… Kim doesn’t want a battle.
“Kim is sad how things ended up. The split was a devastating decision from the beginning.”
Meanwhile, Kris is said to be against divorce for religious reasons so is planning to ask for legal separation extended indefinitely if his petition for annulment – for which he cited “fraud” – is not granted, has claimed.
An indefinite separation would prevent both the basketball player and the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star from marrying again, but legal experts believe Californian courts will grant Kim’s divorce petition.
Kris, 26, had originally agreed to sign divorce papers when Kim, 31, flew out to Minnesota for showdown talks, though the sportsman’s father says he was “blindsided” by the legal action.

William Humphries said: “There was never a discussion about it – it just came out of nowhere and blindsided Kris.
“How could someone do that? Kris was completely surprised. The news was already published before he found out.”

Kris Humphries – Kris Humphries Seeks Annulment Based On ‘Fraud’

Photo from:
In a shocking new twist to the Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian breakup, the New Jersey Nets star is vowing to dispute his wife’s divorce filing and is instead seeking an annulment of their 72 day marriage based on “fraud”, according to US Weekly magazine.
On Thursday (December 1, 2011), the Nba star kept his promise to dispute the divorce filing and entered his official response in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeking an annulment. Kardashian, 31, has already filed divorce claiming “irreconcilable differences” as her grounds for seeking to end the 72 day marriage. According to, Kris has deep-rooted religious reasons for opposing divorce and wants an annulment because it wipes clean the state and simply ‘erases’ the marriage. Although property rights and various other assets between the former couple are yet to be determined, Humphries has asked Kardashian to pay for the legal fees.
The couple married in a lavish ceremony in Montecito, California, on August 20, 2011. The nuptials, reportedly costing $10 million, was taped for a four-hour E! Entertainment special. During last week’s Kourtney and Kim Take New York premiere, cracks in the marriage were all too readily apparent.

Kim Kardashian finds news of Kris Humphries’ annulment filing ‘upsetting’: Reality star ‘doesn’t’ want a battle’

The drama’s not over for Kim Kardashian.

The reality star is feeling rattled by news that soon-to-be ex-husband Kris Humphries has filed for an annulment, even though she originally considered doing the same thing, sources told People.

“The filing is, of course, upsetting,” an insider close to Kardashian told the magazine. “She respects Kris and just wants them both to find peace and move on.”

“Kim doesn’t want a battle,” the source added.

Kardashian, 31, reportedly mulled over having her short-lived marriage to the NBA player annulled before ultimately choosing to file for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” as cause for their split.

The decision came after she was told it would likely be difficult to prove grounds for annulment in California courts, People reported.

“Kim is sad how things ended up,” the source said. “The split was a devastating decision from the beginning.”

On Wednesday, Humphries, 26, claimed “fraud” as reason for filing the annulment.

If granted, it will be likely the estimated $10 million wedding extravaganza never happened.

Humphries, who once said he would do anything to make his marriage work, was devastated by the separation, a source close to the New Jersey Nets player told the Daily News earlier this week.

“He is sensitive to marriage both emotionally and religiously,” the source said. “He entered the marriage in good faith and genuinely loved her and is devastated that it turned out like this.

According to documents, Humpries wants a legal separation if his request for an annulment is denied.

Kris would never have flown his childhood pastor in to officiate if he were in on the scam, this mole insists, while concluding that Humphries plans to use Kim’s own, absolutely idiotic words against her.
In THIS STATEMENT, she all but admits that she went through with the wedding because she “got caught up in the hoopla and the filming of the TV show.”
So…. what do you think? Did Kris play a knowing role in the quickie divorce proceedings?

Kris Humphries Source Calls BS on Kourtney & Kim Take New York Premiere

Over three million people tuned in for this week’s season two premiere of Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Among them? Kris Humphries. And a friend tells Radar Online that the NBA free agent did not like what he witnessed.
“It’s just not a true depiction about what was actually going on between Kim and Kris,” the insider says.
For example, Kris did not just up and leave for Minnesota, as the episode implied.

Kim was “nagging Kris about working,” this mole says. “There was nothing he could do about the NBA lockout. He was working out, and getting ready for the upcoming season, and he is a free agent. It was actually Kim’s idea that Kris go back to Minnesota to train and give them some distance.”

The lockout is now over, of course, and Kris is no longer sleeping just a few feet from a crying Mason Disick, whose play area was set up outside his bedroom in New York City because producers wanted it there.

“Kris is very excited to take on the next chapter of his life,” another insider says. “He feels with the NBA returning, he can get back to his normal routine and away from the madness that has been the whole wedding disaster.”

The drama now moves into NBA arenas, as fans wonder what they ought to chant at the power forward. Leading options include:

You got played! You got played!
Raaaaay J! Raaaaay J!
Go back to E! Go back to E!

Kris Humphries: The Husband from Hell?

Kim Kardashian has been receiving the brunt of criticism for her split from Kris Humphries, with over 100,000 people even signing a petition to take this waste of large breasts off the air.
But the latest issue of Us Weekly quotes sources who point a finger at the bruising NBA power forward, even dubbing him the Husband from Hell.

On top of clubbing throughout New York and Los Angeles – insisting on free bottle service wherever he went – Humphries simply acted like a jerk for most of the 72 days, an insider claims:
“He belittled her in front of people. He’d call her stupid. It was truly sickening.”
This mole remembers at least one incident where Kris referred to Kim as a “fat ass” and added that he resents her fame and fortune:
“He tried to control Kim by bringing her down… He would say truly terrible things. One time, he said she had no talent and her fame wouldn’t last.”
Well, one of those points is true. We’re praying the other soon comes to fruition, as well.

Kris Humphries to Sue the Kardashians?!?

A new tabloid report describes Kris Humphries as the Husband from Hell. But that’s nothing compared to how this basketball player will be come across on season two of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, sources say.
The former Mr. Kim Kardashian is allegedly contemplating a $10 million lawsuit against his ex-in-laws because “his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told,” an insider tells Life & Style. “Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.”

Specifically, viewers will reportedly see Humphries giving Kim’s BFF, Jonathan Cheban, a hard time over his mannerisms and his attitude.
“Kris used the word ‘gay’ as an insult, to try and hurt Jonathan,” an E! insider claims. “He’s the lowest of the low, bullying someone like this.”
But it’s all fake, William Humphries says. Those scenes were all scripted. His son has retained attorney Lee Hutton III and is aiming to prevent his derogatory remarks from making the air.
“Little did Kris know that he was being set up,” says the elder Humphries to the magazine. “Kris got used -100 percent used.”
And he’s 100 percent more known and more of a spokesperson now than before marrying Kim. The guy has has it rough.

Kim Kardashian Wins Again: Kris Humphries Will “Never Sue”

Photo from:
Just as gossip was going into overdrive that Kris Humphries would be suing former wife Kim Kardashian for, well, everything, a source within the NBA player’s camp is vehemently denying anything of the sort.

Episodes from the upcoming season of Kourtney & Kim Take New York allegedly portray Humphries in a very negative light and an account recently surfaced saying he was filing a $10 million lawsuit against Kim because of it.

TMZ reports a source within Humhpries’ team contacted them to refute the gossip, saying he still loves Kim and their relationship right now is “cordial.” He’s apparently worried the show will make him look worse than he really is, but he understands he has no control of it.

Viewers of Keeping Up With The Kardashians are familiar with Humphries’ constant snarky jibes against Kim and her family members, so the out-of-work athlete must definitely be curious to see how he’ll be portrayed when Kourtney & Kim Take New York airs this Sunday night on the E! channel.

Kris Humphries May Sue Kim Kardashian Over Negative Portrayal in TV Series?

Kris Humphries may sue Kim Kardashian for $10 million because he has been portrayed negatively in Kourtney & Kim Take New York and his role in the reality TV series was more substantial than he was told, reports Life & Style .
Kris believes the negative portrayal would adversely affect his ability to earn in the future. He is particularly worried about footage in which he comes through as a homophobe.
An E! insider tells Life & Style, “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality. Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.”
The incident upset Kim because “Kris used the word ‘gay’ as an insult, to try and hurt Jonathan,” says the source.
Other scenes show Kris breaking wind in front of Kourtney’s face and stomping on Kim’s toes.
According to Kris, his family and his friends, the show was largely scripted, including the scene that has Kris questioning Jonathan’s sexuality.
Kris’ father, William Humphries, tells the magazine, “Little did Kris know that he was being set up.
“Kris got used –100 percent used.”
The show premieres on Sunday, and Kris is reportedly trying to stop the inflammatory scenes from being aired.
There were reports yesterday that Kris called Kim “stupid,” “fat ass” and a “no talent” whose “fame wouldn’t last.”
A source close to the basketball player has told Gossip Cop that the Life & Style story, “This is completely false.”
Kris has not commented on his relationship with Kim since his initial statement following her divorce filing in which he said, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
