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.

Kris is right. He was just a parenthesis in the story of her life. A blip. No. Make that a period (.)

A convenient part of the business plan.

Best news I've heard on this pitiful Kim non-stop drama. If this story is true it implies that Kris has real feelings/love for Kim and intended to have a true marriage. If he sees no way for the marriage to work - since Kim defrauded him into the marriage and then turned around and instantly filed for divorce - it makes sense for him to push for annulment instead.
That also forces Kim to make a personal decision at least in her mind, if not publicly. She will have to deal with the fact that all signs point to her husband believes that she NEVER loved him and didn't marry him for love. If that is true she will have no problem agreeing to annulment based on the marriage was a fraud. If on the other hand this prompts her to really examine her feelings, her actions and what message her actions have shown her husband she may come to the realization that she did love Kris - not just the idea of a fairytale marriage. If she loved him at all she surely still can figure out a way to work on that love and relationship. You don't throw away a marriage after 72 days without working on the relationship. If she loves this man, who IS her husband, she might figure out all this nonsense, drama, pain and stress goes away when she starts working on the marriage instead of working on ending it as quickly as she can.
She should spend every hour she can away from the cameras and slowly - without other family and friends in the mix - and quietly get away with Kris and have alone time for a few weekends or few weeks over the next few months. They shouldn't talk about decisions like divorce or annulment, just let the legal process take its course while the two of them spend time together and see in a few months if they really want to pull the plug on the marriage or not. Kris filing for annulment indicates to me that with work and trust his love/desire to stay married to her can prevail. If Kim had any love for him at all she would try much, much harder to show him its worth a try. What does she lose by trying for a couple of months privately - alone with Kris not with others, away from cameras to see if they have a relationship?
Lastly, all the public disgust of Kim would disappear in a heartbeat if she gave her marriage a true and fighting chance.

Are you kidding me!! You were in on it, you wanted the publicity because unlike klohe's husband, you're nobody basketball player and now that you are in the line of fire with Kim and her family, you want to play the victim! She is going to win and you will end up with NOTHING. Go back to being the nobody you were before you met her. You're not even in her "class".

I'm glad you finally get it, Kris!! It was about money and ratings. You should start your own reality show, and everyone who is sick and tired of the Kardashians can be on it!! You would need a very, very large studio!! There is Kim and Kourtney take New York---your show could be called "Kris and friends take on the Kardahsians". Go for it!!

She competed with Kate M    

Did anyone notice months ago that as soon as the media started talking about the expense of and interest in William and Kate's wedding, suddenly Kim got engaged and started talking about the expense and coverage of that "wedding"? Coincidence or publicity wh***? You decide.

Uh    

The power of TV plus the gullibility of the masses....sigh.
Makes one wonder about the content of any television show. They either can't police themselves, or they are all eating from the same pie. One thing for sure...the stench from the vomit they spew out really stinks.

I don't know if someone whispered in his ear or he figured it out himself but he's right. He should get a piece of her $ from the show or sue her for fraud.
