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.

Umm...interesting, she went straight for the divorce, no counseling or any kind of attempt to make it work. NO ONE bought her story, so she tries to reconcile for her image, NO ONE bought it. And now it is Kris Humphries fault? He is the only one not running to the media about this! NO ONE is buying this!!!

He got a publicist and started to work on his image?? It's ok for her to have one but not him? Kim's whole life is scripted by her publisist and her mom. What if Kim didn't have everyone doing things to make her look like someone she's not? She would be ghetto girl slut.

Kim K is a shallow human being, who in my opinion has no right to judge other people. She can't stay married longer than a few months so it's obvious she is a terrible judge of character. Give him the f****** ring back you whore

The reason for the divorce that was stated in the article was a bunch of bull. They should have resolved the Minnesota decision long before the marriage. The marriage was a sham, and this lousy excuse in also a sham. Couple counseling would have helped, but they think they're above that.

Wow!!!! She didnt want anyone out doing her. If he was chasing fame what the hell is she doing!!! She is a dumb moron. Please stop talking about her. When she is knocked down and can't get up then thats a story to talk about this tramp named Kim K. She is a hot gutter trash mess. Didnt want anyone but her in the fame light. If you are married then you are one. Why both couldnt do it if they were truly one. She needs to get sniped in the head with a rifle.

Chasing fame? That's what Kim has been doing for years. In fact, her whole family has been doing it for years too. Read what her former publicist has to say especially about the ring.
