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.

What Fame? Kim Kardashian is nothing but a slut who is famous for being a slut star in a cheap homemade porn film. There is something to be proud of... people look up to her? People really are dumb-asses.... lemmings... who have no thoughts of their own. We make whores and druggies rich... Jersey Shore/Kardashians.. whores, sluts and wastes of air.

Apologies if anyone has said this, I'm too close to sleep to go through 6 pages, but it sounds like he tried to keep up with the Kardashians.

Mom shopped and shopped for an athlete that would marry her and they got Kris to say yes. So, what do you expect? Kris isn't Mom's puppet so it's adios! see ya'! Is there one person who expected Kim to be able to love anyone except herself??? I mean, reallY?

Total spin from Ms. Fat Butt's "camp". KK is a hoe, dream killer, a groupie, porn star, and skank. Evidently she had her eye on another NBA player, right before this guy and he rejected her advances. KK and her family, except for Mr. Jenner, are set up for failure. It's ironic that the fat Khloe refused a pre-nup from Odom and had a contract drawn up so she would get millions, but the porn "star" had a pre-nup drawn up. This was so fake.

Kim and the rest of the Kardashian's were nothing before the sex tape....It is the public who made them and who can also stop put them in the poor house....They are a bunch of spoiled brats and Rob the family idiot....So spend your hard earned money to keep supporting their so called Reality show.....PLEASE move on from this fake drama

I hate Kardashians, I hate the show. I can't think of a more useless, unproductive group of people and all in one family! What have they contributed to the betterment of society? Their fashions?

Seriously, Kim was "put off that Kris hired a Hollywood publicist"???? Hey, I would, too, if I were in his place. He knows the K family well enough to know they'll try to pin all the negative stuff on him now. I still can't believe Kim is so popular, and all because she made a porn film. Jesus, people.

Kind of feel bad for that poor dope, Kris. From OMG!:

"Property rights will be determined in accordance with the couple's prenuptial agreement. This is what Kardashian intends to keep out of Humphries' hands: her jewelry and "personal effects"; all the money she made before, during and after the marriage; everything else the doomed duo pre-divided up in their prenup."

That poor dope isn't even going to get a cut of the wedding moolah. He should get at least half... There wouldn't have been a wedding without him.
