Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries

Negotiating Prenup

6/4/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian and her fiancé Kris Humphries are hedging their bets -- they're hammering out a prenup before they tie the knot ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources close to the couple tell us … both Kim and her NBA star hubby-to-be are telling friends, “It’s the smart thing to do."  And, by the way, they're right.

We’re told the move isn’t one-sided.  Both Kim and Kris have tons of loot.  Kim is worth a reported $35 mil.

As for Kris ... he's not only making $3.2 mil a year with the Nets, his family also owns a couple of burger joints in Minnesota. Kris' net worth is estimated at $8 million.

We’re told Kim’s late father, famed O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Kardashian, told her about the importance of contracts … and Kim feels her dad would have wanted her to take financial precautions.

I wish them both well, and with a prenup, they won't have to worry about the financial issues. I wish more people's comments weren't so negative and hurtful--it says a lot about the people who wrote them. Just be happy for them--they are young, successful, rich and in love. Not too many of us can say that.

These Kim K. articles are really boring; I guess the people at TMZ and in L.A. still care about her.

What a moron to spend 1/4 of his net worth on a ring for a bimbo, who CLEARLY is not in love with him. You can see it in her body language and the way she walks about 20 paces in front of him. She's still in love with Reggie I think - could be wrong. But this woman is not going to be satisfied with a guy that makes so much less than her.

BTW, that prenup she's getting is to protect her money, not his.

Dare I suggest this so called engagement is a joke and will soon end!!! Oh what people do for publicity!!

He spent $2 million on her engagement ring. HAHA! PLEASE!

I'm sure Kim paid for 50-75% of the cost of that ring to have the biggest ring in the family and one that girls would drool over. Khloe is married, Kourtney has a long term dysfunctional relationship and a kid with Scott, and poor Kim just looks like a sad child that wants attention.

Every week, we hear of another professional athlete cheating on their spouse. If this guy is into Kim Kardashian, he's obviously attracted to slutty women, so thinking he has the ability to remain monogamous is ridiculous from the get go.

Kim has said a number of times that all of the athletes she has dated like to do it from behind. Guess what, there's a reason. They don't want to look at that face. She's 30 and looks like she's had more plastic surgery than Joan Rivers. Anytime men (whether athletes or not) want to always go at it from behind, they obviously don't want to see your face, they don't want to kiss while making love or anything, they just want her to bend over and take it.

Even though the guy is worth far less, I'm happy he's getting a pre-nup. I'm sure Kim is already calculating how much she can get out of this in publicity and from the divorce in the end with her mother Kris on the sidelines collecting her 10%. Kim Kardashian is nothing more than a media whore. She has no talent, she really doesn't even have beauty, she's just got a big a$$.

The real thing that bothers me is that parents will let their kids watch this trash. Kim has had a sex tape, keeps posing nude for magazines, and has a reputation of a woman working her way through every professional sports team in America. Parents need to figure out how to use the parental controls on their TV and block out the E! network (excuse me the KKK network - Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney)

As for some of the predictions about how long the marriage will last. Once this guy moves in with Kim and founds out how bad her OCD is and how controlled everything she does is to maximize on media attention, I doubt he'll put up with it for very long.

She's a bitter, desperate old woman in a curvy body. Honestly does ANYONE see anything in Kim Kardashian that looks like marriage material? She's not nice, She's not a philanthropist, She cares about no one but herself and she's a self-absorbed b!tch. This is all a publicity stunt arranged by Kim and Kris Jenner and nothing more. Unfortunately the guy is just along for the ride and probably too stupid to realize it.

It's good that Kim's making him sign a contract. Most guys just leave the money on the bedside table, and sign the visitor's book on the way out.

if he is worth 8 million how did he buy her a $3,000,000 ring??????????

1205 days ago


Kris had a career year and is a free agent. probably in the market for a 5 year 35-40 million dollar contract.

He looks like Frankenstein to me, and a bumbling fool. Perfect for KK. I think she's marrying him because they can all have matching names!

1205 days ago
