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.

Consider the source - Kim's "friends". Most likely Khloe and momager Kris...

That's what happens when you marry someone who's already married - to her mom.

The guy needs to run away from them all as fast as his long legs can take him. He was just a prop in a badly scripted and badly acted soap opera.

Kim, Tell your mother to stop "leaking" bad press on Kris H. It's very unbecoming to you, and VERY TRANSPARENT.

Kris H should instead devote his time getting a job, a job that doesn't connect to him being Kim's husband. Kim and her family are overly materialistic and shallow so they probably realize Kris being jobless right now won't be able to sustain his new wife's lavish and high lifestyle. Besides, their marriage has been doomed since day one. Kris perhaps is hoping to prolong the marriage so he'd be able to have himself entitled to some form of settlement in the future afterall, Kim is worth millions already.

Let's face it, Kris H. was a faceless b-rated NBA player of what, the Nets? He's no Lamar Odom who's been a veteran NBA superstar so Lamar has already amassed millions and has already established his status in the NBA world so Lamar was very much well-received by the Kardashian women while Kris H only became famous when he started dating Kim K and started getting Hollywood gigs since he hooked up with his wife. So the best thing Kris should do is to find a job and move on. Kim will never move to his hometown and their personalities really don't fit. He's overly domineering and arrogant while Kim is a rotten spoiled 30ish whose priority in life are her career and of course money.

Really not a good match.

The entire Kardashian family is a disgrace to the human race. Scott, Bruce, and Mason are the only decent people in the family who have not become fame-seeking, money-grubbing, spoiled brat whores. Even Kendall and Kylie are despicable ... they're going to be as bad as Kim.

this family is so disgusting...they think noone can see through their shams and lies. I would be ashamed for the rest of my days to be involved with this repulsive family..Kris Jenner is a money hungry pimp, making all these deals with the devil, and her daughters are her ho's....and sorry, noone is buying your bull**** about how bad Kris Humphries was...you all are the ones with the bad reputations...after all Kim is a porn star who made her name by being peed on, remember?

The marriage was a sham from day 1. It was orchestrated by Kim and Co. to build a whole season of their show around. It was staged, planned and it led to huge wedding which only drew an audience. Kris Hunphries was on contract doing nothing more than playing a part. This is so obvious. Why would Kim marry a guy she's known for months like that? There is no way that would happen. He signed a pre-nup and was paid whatever amount figuring it would help him get endorsement deals down the road. He help Kim, she help him-it was all business. Anyone that thought this marriage was real is naive not that that it matters either way. It's entertainment if you want to call it that. She even marry a sports star just like her sister. All staged you can bet on that. Just ask Ryan Seacrest-it was probably his and Kris K's idea.
