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.

Wedding show, now the divorce and aftermath shows....next will be her "baby scare". Be glad it's over for you, in two years you'd end up looking like bruce jenner...an eye on each side of your head.
The people who watch this crap, and buy their stuff are fools!

I don't blame him for hiring a publicist, her friends and family are already trashing him and it hasn't even been a whole day. Reading her filing, it sounds like she wants all the wedding gifts too. I think she should have to pay for his attorney, and he should get the ring back.

Wait a minute. So, he's married to the biggest fame monster on the planet and HE'S not allowed to be famous too? So THAT'S a red flag for Kim? Somethings wrong with this picture. I think she liked the idea of being with someone who is self sufficient financially, but no as famous. If he's as famous, then all bets are off and she's upset because she becomes less the center of attention.

His basketball career will be finished soon if it isn't already since he hasn't been doing anything but sitting on his ass. That's what part of the problem was. It seemed like it was purposely trying to instigate fights with her just to get a rise out of her. He seems like a control freak who lost out on an opportuntity to make a ton of cash because his ego ogt in the way. Kris Kardashian would have been the only one to make him some money. It's not like he's got a winning personality.

You can spin this anyway you want Kim, but just like the world knows you made that sex tape and then released it, the world knows who to blame for your marriage failing.

Word is that E was calling baseball teams to find someone to date her, and the one she really wanted to date turned her down. Even if he was chasing fame she looks like the creep in all of this. I hope she loses out big time.

Why would KrisHumphries want them to move to Minnesota, chastise Kim on being materialistic, and act so uncomfortable around cameras if he's looking for fame? Khloe is so full of XXXX.
