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.

For the love of everything - PLEASE STOP COVERING THIS FAKE TRASH. THE ENTIRE FAMILY - WHO CARES? Media manufactured fame and money whores that will stop at nothing for attention. What makes me sick to my stomach is the constant "stories" we have to be bombarded with across the internet. It's simple - STOP WRITING/POSTING about this fake family and the world will be rid of the most vapid, vacuous, self-absorbed creatures to roam the earth. No one cares about them.

E. Who cares?

Kim Kardashian is a talentless whore. Anybody with a brain can quickly see this entire family is A JOKE.
This idiot wanted a star on the Hollywood walk of fame- for what?? Having zero talent? Because your late Father was a lawyer for a murderer??
These people need to GO AWAY.
Help us get rid of the trainwreck, Harvey. Move on. Or people will move on from TMZ.

Wow. The war of words is already starting and it hasn't even been 8 hours since the announcement. I can't wait for the E! "Kim & Kris: A Very Special Reunion" 4 hour TV event.

We're being played, people. The marriage was a play, and so is this divorce. The reunion is probably scheduled for the finale.

I cannot believe people are taking this report at face value. Clearly, the Kardashians, namely Kim and her mom, are spinning the story. It is so funny how some people are eager to throw the person they "loved" under the bus! Gross and classless!

If anyone believed this was a real marriage you aren't very smart. This was all for ratings and fame it was pretty obvious.

Of course he's "chasing fame." He's chasing the money too. Why else would he agree to be part of this sham marriage? While I don't think too much of Kris Humphries, the Kardashians don't have any room to talk (this was all their idea!).

This is nothing more than the Kardashian clan trying to do some damage control by deflecting the blame and trashing him. They are so pathetic.
