Kris Humphries

I Was Kim's

Reality Show Pawn

12/1/2011 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian arguingSources very close to Kris Humphries tell TMZ ... Kris is gunning for an annulment based on fraud because he feels "he was just slotted in the plot line of Kim Kardashian's latest headline and newest business venture."

We're told Kris believes Kim never intended to stay married to him, but needed a groom to fuel ratings for her show.  One source says, "Once they were finished taping, she just didn't need a groom anymore."

Kris is telling people he feels like a pawn in the game. 

And, we're told, Kris is outraged by people who think he was in on the wedding scam -- according to one friend, "He would have never flown in his childhood pastor to marry them and involve his church."

Finally, Kris feels Kim's own statement that she posted on her blog is a smoking gun ... specifically, "I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have.  I got caught up in the hoopla and the filming of the TV show."

Bottom line -- the divorce/annulment war is on.

Seems Kris has other things on his mind too -- he was spotted yesterday at the airport in Washington, DC with his mother. They were in town to attend a children's health conference ... "Building A Healthier Future Conference." We're told Kris is very active in the cause.

Kim is the current Heidi Montag: Useless, meaningless, and, thank God, soon to be gone.

KarTRASHIANS go away. We, as americans, are sick and tired of your sick money tactics. We see right thru you and you are all so ugly and money grubbing fools.

Who in the world would STAGE a 'fairytale wedding' at the tune of $18 million and a zillion sponsors????????????

Answer: The sick KarTRASHIANS...they will stop at nothing to make a buck. Kris: Stay strong and sue the KRap out of them!!!!!! Enough is Enough and you have so many rights/reasons to sue this sicko family. They need to go away and find another job...instead of living off of LYING to us thru the pimp mother's antics.

Sick. Sick. Sick.

Kim and her family are dumber than I thought? They are still trying to paint Humpfries as the bad guy and spin this in a positive direction for her. What they don't understand is WE DON'T CARE! America is done with you! The Kardashian family has overstayed their welcome with the American public. We are tired of your greed, your need for attention and your crude behavior. We don't want to hear Kim's side of the story, we just want you all to just go away. Go buy an island somewhere and take the whole family there! You can all tell eachother how wonderful you all think you are, Rob and Scott can continue to do nothing and not have jobs and we would never have to see your ugly botoxes faces again. I can't think of a more horrible family than this

Lets see-- $1.5 million in gifts (keeping 'em) will not send back but will (Per mom Chris) give a 'generous' $200,000 to charity!! Huh? and then write it off as a charitable contribution I suppose. Gotta be a first to collect over a million in gifts then get a tax write off for nearly 1/4 of it. That is a first!!!

It's too funny with Kim now being put on the Austrailian Watch List.


Guess those sponsers and endorsements maybe fading. Love to see the IRS take a look at them.

I didn't read all the comments, but does anyone even consider that Kris is a pretty traditional guy (in terms of values)? If he cares about the institution of marriage, and thought his was going to last when he proposed, then it's easy to understand why he wanted an annulment after it fell apart after 72 days. In the end, if you can only get a marriage annuled in CA for certain reasons (incest, bigamy, fraud, coercion, party under age of consent), he had to choose the one option that would allow him to ask that the marriage be annulled. The media is making it seem vastly different than it likely is. There's no way Kim could legally have said the same, so it had to be Kris that filed that way - if he wanted it annulled. While it's "bad" publicity for Kim, it doesn't look great for Kris either. I'd bet money they both knew what Kris was going to do and are just dealing with the media frenzy. Can't tell the truth or the annullment legally can't happen.

It's about time he faced the truth.He was used for ratings and free stuff for Kim and her mother.I agree get this scam annulled and get all you can. The world is crashing down on their fifteen minutes of fame. Kim just had to top the quick wedding of one sister and the bastard baby machine of the other along with the loser brother and last but not least beat out the other little tramp in the making baby sister. Run Kris Run

maybe, he will be able to salvage his pride and his dignity after being suckered into her sham reality. maybe, he can regain some of his obscurity. the reality is that exploiting her life is her career. it's a family business. it's their livelihood and it's being managed and scripted by the mom. the more annoying they are the more money they earn. they have no pride or dignity, it's anything goes. they're all cashing in on seeking fame and fortune. he is so much younger than she is and it's possible he really had no idea what was happening. he didn't catch on to what he was dealing with...the true nature of the beast.
