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.

Didn't Kim state yesterday that "Kris H and her discussed anullment options prior to her filing for divorce" - yet Kris said he was "TMZ blindsided by her divorce filing"?

Kim's horsehit keeps pumping out.

Kris H, this is why Reggie ran far far away. You were just ********* #200 upon Kim's chin.

He probably deserves the annulment. Whether she realized it or not, she knew he was not mature enough to make a long-term commitment. She is not prepared for such serious decisions either, maybe the marriage hooplah was a distraction from the real relationship for her, consciously or not. Odd, she says in a clip from the show I will never watch that she expected to be married with kids by 30, but is obviously completely unprepared to be realistic about life and certainly not ready to be a mother. When your baby is crying, a messed up pedicure does not count as important. Call the nanny? UGH. Grow up.They both act very childish.

he should get an annulment! it was a total sham on her part. who gives up a "marriage" after 72 days unless they are being abused? i honestly didn't think this guy could be so in love with her, especially when every man on the planet has either screwed her, or watched her being screwed, unless he was acting a part in the sham, too. i am now thinking i was wrong. judging by his behavior and such eagerness to defend the sanctity of marriage it, really does seem like he was set up. i really don't know how that girl can sleep at night, or how anyone can sleep with her. just looking at her makes me feel all creepy and slutty. guys must be really, REALLY stupid.

I believe him. That family is very good at manipulating people. That's what they did. Manipulated him. Kim she uses Men to gain more famous. She did the same **** to her first hubby, then that what called rapper...Reggie and oh others...also Halle berry Ex. America need to protest against all crap reality shows. Please wake up and do it.All this nonsense wanna be stars will be done.

I think most of the public can see through the kkk's pathetic smear campaign against Kris. I don't think he's guilty of anything except for being naive. Just live and learn, dude. Hopefully he'll be able to get the marriage annulled on the grounds that he was deceived.

She's a spoiled, self-entitled user, who is just concerned with herself at the expense of others. Stop making this no talent slut rich everyone, let's send her the hell away,..her AND her family.

humphries wasn't just kim's pawn but the entire family's pawn on the show. now we have kourtney pregnant again by scott who she and her family say is a alcoholic and has anger issues. none of the family liked him and treat him like crap. kourtney broke up with him because she says he cheated on her then she claims she got pregnant accidently when they got back together. kourtney's not some teenage girl who has several babies not married. she has stated on the show he's not the kinda guy she would ever marry. kourtneys in her thirties and to continues to have babies with a man she and her family put down all the time on the show. scott is nothing but a sperm donor to her. this is great tv for all the young teenage girls and her 2 young sisters. just because the kardashians have money and don't live in a trailer park don't mean they're not TRASH.

I hate Ryan Seacrest because he brought such an unethical, demoralized person and family into the households of America in the guise of normal and acceptable behavior. Shame on RYAN SEACREST! Look how many people you have hurt, Dude! You, of all people, should be a *better* person. Why in the world would you encourage such psychopathic, narcissistic behavior?? You gross me out, Dude, along with the whole K Klan you are pimpin' out. RYAN SEACREST, JOE PATERNO, BERNIE MADOFF, KEN SCHILLING = DISGRACE IN THE NAME OF MONEY!! HANG YOU HEAD IN SHAME, BASTARD!

Kris, finally you see what we all knew. Don't let her get away with putting the blame on you. Fight her and make her pay for the attorney fees. She should pay for what she made you go through. I hope you take the smirk off the face of the Kardashian/Jenner Klan.
