Kim Kardashian Divorce

Kris Was 'Chasing Fame'

10/31/2011 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Humphries Was Chasing FameKim Kardashian's friends are scoffing at Kris Humphries, claiming he's full of BS when he says he wanted to have a simple life with her in Minnesota, because once the marriage fell apart, he immediately began "chasing fame."
 
They're saying in the last week or so, when they started talking about the possibility of divorce, Kris went into full Hollywood gear, talking about "branding" the Kris Humphries name with cologne, nightclub appearances and what not.

And we're told Kris was pushing to keep their connection going, even if they ended their marriage ... and that threw up red flags.

We're told Kim was especially put off that Kris hired a Hollywood publicist over the weekend to work on his image.

As we previously reported, one of the main reasons for the divorce was that Kris wanted Kim to move to Minnesota, but once it became clear she wasn't leaving Hollywood and the marriage was over, Kris was all about the very things he despised.

Funny, they have more in common than we thought.

This was scripted from the beginning by Ryan Seacrest and E for the show. Just a storyline people, get over it. Phony as the Kardashian boobs...

"Funny, they have more in common than we thought." I was thinking the very same thing. What a joke.

Who is feeding you these Kartrashian stories? Kris?
Kim is a talentless, fake person only interested in one thing: herself.

You're "told" all this, huh, TMZ?

Gotta be Kris (not the big doofy one, the small female one) who's got TMZ on speed-dial, this reeks of one of her spin jobs.

are they really trying to make us believe that kris is the bad guy here. she is the one who has been doing things for the media attention (remember the sex tape) she is the one who has been divorced before and she is the one who will do anything for a buck including endorsing toilet paper, they are shameless. the only thing he is guilty of is being stupid enough to marry her. this has kardashian written all over it. i highly doubt he would want himself to look like such a fool on tv.

I think they're both trash. And the wedding guests should ask for their $1000 dollar serving spoon gifts back. Good luck to the next Mr. Kim Kardashian Whore.

i watch the show and i don't believe for a minute Kris was chasing fame more than this being the BS excuse her sisters and her made up so he looks like the bad guy. its stupid to even believe he was chasing it considering how he wanted her to stop worrying about all of her materialistic things. i bet Khloe made this up as an excuse since i think she said it before but it didn't make sense then, and still doesn't make sense now. i always got the feeling Kim was rushing into this because her sisters were more or less married and her mom kept pushing her into it. Sad that they're trying to blame Kris even if he is pretty clueless.

Well in that case he should fit right in! Besides, he has skills. Actual skills. Meanwhile consider a brief history of Sexual harassment in government.

Also, is this story supposed to be a surprise? You mean to tell me someone married the biggest famewhore in the United States and he **GASP** wants to be famous? I am shocked! Is there also gambling in Casablanca?
