Kim Kardashian
's husband claims he was bilked out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by a guy he invited to his wedding ... a guy who's been arrested for allegedly running a $1.7 million investment scam.

Andrey C. Hicks was a guest at Kim and Kris Humphries televised wedding bonanza in August ... and sat right behind the happy couple during the rehearsal dinner.

But TMZ has learned ... after the wedding, Kris learned Andrey was a target in a federal investigation in which he's suspected of raising money for a purported billion dollar hedge fund ... that didn't really exist.

Officials believe Andrey lied to several investors -- including Kris -- telling them, among other things, that he was a Harvard graduate ... when in fact, he was kicked out of the University after 3 semesters for crappy grades. Officials say Andrey only took 1 math class at Harvard ... and got a D-.

Officials claim 27-year-old Hicks stole $1.7 million from various investors ... and sources close to Kris tell us the NBA star accounted for hundreds of thousands of dollars himself.

Hicks was arrested in Canada on Friday and charged with wire fraud. Officials believe he was trying to flee to Switzerland. If convicted, Hicks could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Kim K is so selfish that she puts herself first before Kris H. nothing like omg what happen u lost money by someone in my wedding no empathy there. Just the big mouth saying hurtful things. She knew he was ina loveout so why did she wait til after the wedding to do this. I think she is a real big selfish person and has no concerns for others and althought in todays world we need to worry more about ourselves, we also need to remember RESPECT-EMPATHY-LOVE and more is not based on $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$no matter how much you have. She had a down to earth guy in kris and i think of his proffessional side was glamor for her and thats all. She cant handle a real down to earth human i they come with only what they have most a HEART
She bashed him from the start, total upset over-reacts about everything. HOW OLD IS SHE REALLY. grow up learn how to be a kind.. I hope u neve loose what u have cause i dont think you would make it through a walmart store.

72 days does not constitute working on a marriage....please I need a pair of rubber boots to wade through all the BS...Kardashian was caught up in the HER fairytale wedding...Kim don't try to even put yourself out there poor little me... Your mother needs to get her head out of her wallet and start setting a better example...Greed has completely gone to this families head...how embarrassing for the extended family members who conduct their lives with a moral code.

I really think Kim wants a guy who will put her on a pedastal, cater to her every wish, and never disagree with her, her family, or any career choices. If they hadn't rushed in to this wedding so Kim could pro-create (tick-tock), they would have known they weren't compatible enough to wed. Those of us from "yee-haw Minnesota" are personally hoping the Kardashians will disappear, and stop being so nauseating about everything!!!

Well, it sounds like Hicks was just paying Humphries back for robbing blind anyone who bought a gift for the wedding farce.

KK scam    

Hey Kris H, love you dearly, but this was a KK scam. You should have known that anyone there was a fake. Only real people I saw was you and your family. My heart aches for you. Be strong, don't change, you are a wonderful man.
