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.

The Kardashian's optimize what the Occupy Wall Street moment is all about.

The saddest thing about the Kardashian saga is that Kim's sex tape was lame as hell. Worst celebrity sex tape EVER! She lays there with the enthusiasm of a dead hooker. I'd rather bang a termite-infested tree stump.

Kim Kardashian: You are an embarassment to all parents who are trying to teach their children about life. Marriage is not a game or business opportunity. You and your mom should be hiding in a dark room. SHAME on both of you!

“It was pretty much an arranged marriage right from the start,” one source, close to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians production, tells RadarOnline.com. “Kim was looking for a husband and Kris was selected for her, amongst others. She wasn’t really into him but she hoped she would be able to develop some feelings, but it never happened. She was never particularly attracted to him, and by all accounts absolutely hated sleeping with him or even having to make out with him.

That sounds to me like a prostitute.

And to think, all he had to do was make a sex tape to get famous like she did!! He could have saved time with the whole marriage facade.

OK, let me get this straight....Kris Humphries is the no talent narcissistic imbecile committed to only "chasing fame" and innocent lil Kim is blameless in all this. If she can sell this to the public Obama should hire her to run his campaign.

Told ya that "marriage" wouldn't last. And how much did they spend on that crappy wedding? So, it turns out she doesn't like him anymore because he's become just like her? How ironic.

Maybe if they took the time to know each other before getting married.. this would not have happened. I mean, really? 6 months?? Give me a break. These Kardashians nauseate me!

I agree he is just wanting attention. He was a goober from the beginning let alone a contolling freak. I wish she could have seen it earlier but love is blind. He knew before he even met her where her homebase is and that she has a close family. Not many of those left today. I know she can do 100 x better than him. She's a good hearted person and will meet the right man one day. We all live & learn and I wish her the best of luck with her bright future.
