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.

Funny how it's okay for her to stamp her name on everything, but when he wants in on the action, she screams BS! Didn't she want him to get off his azzz due to the lockout, well IF this story is true, he was doing something... what did she expect him to do, be a bell-hop, work at taco bell? FYI... Humpy doesn't seem like the Hollywood chasing type guy, but he did bump his head somewhere along the way by marrying this famewh0re greedy heffa!

She will be off to the next "victim" before you know it. She is the most insecure female ever!!! She always says she wants to enjoy being single but the next thing you know she has latched onto the next guy who pays any attention to her. Jus*****ch, she will be in another relationship before the ink is dry on the divorce papers.

Kris Humphries always acted like a douche. He even lost a College scholarship to a big school because the other players didn't want to be around him.

The Kardashians have to realize their entire "Brand" became what it is today because Kim could suck the chrome off a bumper and put it all on film for the world to see!

Seriously, TMZ??? Kim of all people can't be upset that he was attempting to profit from the marriage, and her friends... well, of course they're going to say anything to protect their friend. First of all, there's an NBA lockout going on, so he should want to make money. Second of all, how can she be upset that he enlisted the help of a publicist! I think the real attention seeker in the relationship was Kim. Granted, I don't know the chick from a can of paint, but I did watch her wedding and from day one, I predicted that the marriage would end shortly after the special aired. She didn't even include Kris' name in the title of the wedding special and left his parents out of the wedding planning. Talk about emasculating your husband. Whatever happened to "For Better or Worse?" She didn't seek counseling, and apparently she didn't even inform him of the divorce petition. Who calls Ryan Seacrest before filing for divorce? Now that's some ish. So I ask, what was the big damn rush to get married? Can the real attention whore, please stand up!

Yay for Mrs. Pimp of a mom trying to spin this one. Let's be real, your family doesn't care about anything other than money and Kris H. was nothing more than a payday for your family. You may be rich but you're all cheap in morals.

Kris can't get his woman to settle down in minnesota, so he tries living in kims world, he hires a publicist to help him fit into the Kar Family image. sounds to me like he never had a chance.
