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.

update_bar
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.

Is it just me that thinks he now looks goodlooking. When he was with Kim, he just looked like a dummie following his master around. And Kris, the next time you date, be with someone a bit more taller. He really looked like a giant dummy next to Kim.

Why do some intelligent successful women think these overpaid Neaderthal Jocks can act like adults in the real world? Come on already, they play kiddie games for a living, many have trouble even spelling their own name, what did Kim expect?

Kris Humphries is a great guy despite all Kim Kartrashian's false negative rhetoric about him which the K family spins to make him look bad to salvage Kim and the K family's careers. Kris took some time to think this out and sought some good legal advise. He should seek an annulment because he has morals and character. He should be awarded an annulment based on Kim's first hand statements to the press and on her blog/website and in interviews. But the Kartrashaians will make him pay steeply for seeking an annulment emotionally, psychologically, and of course their ultimate goal, monetarily. He will literally be required by Kim to give up something of great monetary value for an annulment. She will make him suffer for him to take the high road of annulment. And, she NEVER wanted an annulment!! Actions speak louder than words-she never cared to get one from her prior husband, or did she?!! So it obviously was never important to her. Besides, because Kim never previously got an annulment, if that is the case, from husband #1, she was not eligible to get one from Kris H. But Kris H. is eligible. Kris H should be awarded the annulment, without having to give up something as the wedding was fraud, but more so, the MARRIAGE was obviously fraud; she was always off for her career and did not even move in to Kris's place. Kim there is a difference between a wedding and a MARRIAGE. I believe she wanted a wedding, but not the marriage. She did use Kris H as a money making pawn. History on TV has proven in soap operas the #1 way to get advertising revenue is to have a HUGE wedding and publicze it. That is what the K family and Kim did. There is nothing that could get them a higher viewership than a wedding. It's a proven TV fact for female actresses. Additionally, Kim admitted she knew she was caught up in it all-all the wedding frenzy- and admitting knowing this, she still went through with it. And she never sought counseling to remedy the issue in the marriage, because she does not value marriage; she say it as profits. SHe only wishes she could have milked the afterwards marriage for more, but since Kris H. NBA career was on lockout, she could not be filmed at the basketball courts cheering her husband on, on TV. And if she genuinely valued the commitment of marriage and saying "I do" forever she did, she would not have had such a personal moment broadcast for millions of complete stranger to view for ratings revenue to pay for it, publicity, ratings, and money. Her actions demonstrated money and publicity were more important than a marriage ceremony. Therefore, it is fraud and grounds for an annulment

Moreover, Kim K should be willing to give over Kris H money from the wedding profits, his expenses for his family to be there, as at the moment they marriage the advertising revenue became his property as well. Why is she so selfish, unkind, and disparaging of Kris H. Kim K and her cult family have made so many immoral and poor excuses, acts, and statements to the public since Kim K ran off and had divorce papers written up, without personally discussing things with Kris H from what Kris H said-that he did not know she was asking for divorce papers to be filed. The depths of her, her Mother's, and Kholes's moral corruptness are endless and shocking to the conscience; they all need some long term professional counseling or they will continue to appear hopeless and unhappy forever.

K family- stop disparaging the man you all allegedly loved and who you all used to pay for the wedding, increase your ratings, and get more TV, internet, and magazine exposure. He is not the problem, you all are. And no, I am not related to Kris H and never met him. This is just an honest point of view from one of your former fans.

And Kim, where is that confidentiality agreement you allegedly had with Jonathan your former PR and friend. (Appears like you sue people just because you do not like what their opinions and statements are to salvage your career.) Cannot he attest to your prior fraud as well at least in the past so this seems to be a pattern of behavior in the headlines. (Remember to use that Kris H. in your request for annulment.) Jonathan posted it on his website. And Kim, what's status on your own laser hair removal sponsor suing you as well. Seems your statements are getting several entities to sue you and getting you in trouble all over the place. You reap what you sow as the cliche goes.

Your viewership may have been good for your last K&K show, but those were looky-loos getting a peek at what a functioning morally corrupt freak show. Money and things will never make you happy. And your waning career which you are trying to save by publicly responding negatively to Kris H just makes you loose more fans. It appears Kim, you are as you stated, a ". . . dummy" although you said you were not. You are having to pay Kris H for a ring you otherwise would have had for free. You were therefore wrong again Kim. Seems you are a ". . . dummy" as was your lawyer. Good luck with that Einstein lawyer Kim, for fighting Kris' annulment if that is how dumb your lawyer is.

Oh, Kim, and what about your alleged proven false statements you make to fans and people-remember the lie you wrote and published on Twitter about Justin Beiber wanting phone calls when you were lying to get unsuspecting people to call and vote for your brother on DWTS? Yes, a lie according to the press. So how can the Court or your fans believe anything you say anymore. Again, the divorce is not causing you to loose fans, rather you and only you are.

So funny, you think you chose a smart lawyer and think you are smart. You made a sex film. You were lucky and had a big asset, that propelled you into the K franchise freak shows, but if you were smart, you would have not now be a two time divorcee and would not have fans leaving you because of our dislike of your treatment toward a human being you allegedly loved after filing for divorce and blaming his family. It's the way you handled everything that has hurt you, not the divorce in itself. Take some personal responsibility and get at least some morals. Our family will not see "The Marriage Counselor" or buy anything from Sears. We will no longer help you earn the millions we previously helped you earn. And I spend time telling the K family this, because it is important to me that you know why we no longer like your morally corrupt empire. We are not haters because we dislike you. We are just not as sallow as you thought your fans were.

If I remember correct Kris was the one that went out and bought a ring, did all the flowers and asked her to marry him. Do you REALLY think that Kim could have faked her reaction when Kris propossed to her. I think that she was truely Happy with him at the beginning & I think that it all went to fast. One episode Kloe if you remember questioned "Kris's Intentions" that he was looking for fame. Then he attacked Kloe's marriage. When he attacked her marriage he was trying to take the attention off himself. When people are quilty of something they do tend to try to get the attention of themselves. Just Saying.... I think that she has taken enough of the Haters(sorry I think that Hate is a strong word) & just needs to be left alone. I think that she has a GREAT family and that they all are very close & a good support for each other as well. Yes they have their tiff's prob just like a lot of other families out there. Her family has done a lot to help with diffrent charities & donated money. People just want to look at her as fake, a lier & talk mean stuff about her & not look at what good she & her family have done to helpthe community. I Hope that everyone would just leave Kim & her family alone. Just Saying.....

It's hard to believe that there are still air heads out there who think the Kartrasians are okay. Eventually they will realize that these idiots are in it for nobody but themselves and will do whatever they have to do to make a dollar. Kim has made a complete fool out of herself and she is going to end up an old crochety bag who doesn't have anybody.

With allll the things going on in this world, what has been exposed are the Kardashians. They have come to represent everything false, plastic, dis-engenuine, where you feel......... dirty and sorry for the other guy(gender neutral)afterwards.

But there is good to their exposing of themselves. We all can become better fore it, as their lesson to you is a "never wanna be that".
Empty, not hopeless romantic

A midwest man is not the type of man to please a Kardashian. He's just too nice for their type. Maybe a middle Eastern wealthy man or a hood rat is more like it. Here's the inside article of Star magazine claiming that Kim and Chloe Kardashian were allegedly stating that Kris Humphries was gay: http://tinyurl.com/7w2nzcz
