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.

I think it was obvious from the beginning that Kris wanted Kim to move to Minnesota (based on what was shown when Kim visited Kris in Minnesota). Hence, that should not have been a shock to Kim. So, saying that was the reason for the divorce sounds a bit weak. Obviously, what they failed to do was have a "meeting of the minds" prior to walking down the aisle. ALL the cards should have been laid on the table and discussed to see if things were going to work. It's a shame it didn't with all the $$$ and time involved in the wedding "production." Quite frankly, everything looked a bit weak (and rehearsed) from the beginning. From what was shown, Kris and Kim NEVER had a meaningful discussion. Everything was rush rush rush, do this, do that, run around, jokey joke, etc, etc, etc. They really didn't appear to be a real, certified couple planning a wedding. The energy around them didn't spell LOVE. And when it was disclosed that Kris didn't even buy the wedding ring, that the production company did, I mean how impersonal is that??? Granted, Kris did pick out the ring (from what was shown to us on TV), but that (a company footing the bill for the ring) just doesn't have a good look to it. It makes one wonder did they also select the ring in advance and have Kris play out the role of selecting it. I could be wrong, but overall things looked a bit fraudulent.

As far as Kris "chasing fame," what's good for the goose... Why not take advantage of what's available to you as long as it's not an assault on the rights of others. What Kris does now is not Kim's concern.

i used 2 like the k clan but oh my, since i watched that wedding footage, i was appalled by the way kim and her mother behaved. u would think kris was just a servant who she has seen fit to talk 2 and can only talk when talked 2 and his job was to say, yes miss k, whatever you want. what has she done, what skill has she got apart from parading herself around for whom ever will pay the highest price? i believe that in trying to blame kris, she thinks we'll not notice that she left him in 72 days? its her fault. want proof, why no*****ch yo wedding footage again and c the monster you were. u and u alone failed yo marriage. money is not everything and the sooner u learn that the happier u'll be.

Looks like the Kardashian PR machine is working overtime. This is such a Republican tactic. Claim that the other person is doing exactly what YOU'VE BEEN DOING THE WHOLE TIME Kim, and hope people are simple enough to fall for it. psh. Try again KK.

Kris is not chasing fame, he is earning an income for the time being, due to the NBA lockout. He is in survior mode until he can play again.

Really Kris was chasing fame? So was Kim when she intentionally put out that sex tape to make a career for herself. It is just called Karma that is with a capital K for Kris!!! LOL. Its funny what a coincidence that everything with this girl has a freakin K! SO maybe E network cast this character to play her quickie husband!! THe show is scripted even that porn star Bree who got hired to play their nanny told everyone that the show is scripted and that Kris Jenner hired her to play the nanny! This family is gross...please go away. Your 15 min are way over with!
