Kris Humphries

I Can't Handle Divorce

12/2/2011 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Humphries cannot handle divorce
Kris Humphries has a plan A and B to end his relationship with Kim Kardashian, but neither involves divorce.

Sources directly connected to Kris tell us ... the BBaller has deep-seated feelings -- rooted in religion -- against divorce. He's filed for an annulment because it wipes the slate clean by erasing the marriage.

If the judge refuses to grant an annulment, we've learned Kris will then ask for a legal separation that will extend indefinitely. He feels even though an indefinite separation would preclude him from marrying again, it's preferable to divorce.

The legal experts we've spoken with say ... unless Kris can prove with "clear and convincing evidence" Kim defrauded him into marrying her ... the judge will almost certainly grant her divorce petition.

In California and most states, it only takes one to UN-tango.

"He feels even though an indefinite separation would preclude him from marrying again, it's preferable to divorce"....wait, am I reading this correctly?????

Either Kris has went over the deep end, he's lying, or someone from Kim's camp sent this to TMZ and want us to think it came from Kris. What 26 year old male thinks this way? And, if he was that deep into his religion what the hell was he doing with Kim in the first place? This story sounds fishy.

The term is "deep-seated" not "deep-seeded", you morons! Learn proper grammar if you are going to be reporting and writing articles. Get an editor that knows how to read and can correct these embarrassing grammar mistakes before you publish these articles. I hope this was just a play on words (not sure what you would mean by it though) and you are not just a bunch on uneducated idiots.

So this goober is too religious for divorce but not religious enough to NOT marry a person who let some black dude p1ss on her in a sex video that she put out on the market. OK..

Unless he is gay and never "hit it" neither party can annul this marriage.
Void marriages are those which are afflicted with a fatal flaw which nullifies the marriage no matter what the position of the spouses might be. The legal status of void marriages is as if they never occurred. Examples of void marriages are those involving a child below the age of seven, those where one of the spouses is already married, those between closely related persons (related lineally or by adoption) or where a mistake of identity of the partner has been made.
Voidable marriages mean that even though there is legal flaw in the marriage, it will be recognized until and unless someone brings the flaw to the attention of a court.
This would be the case, for example, where one or both of the parties were intoxicated during the ceremony to the point where their consent could not have been given.
Another example is where a person is coerced (threatened) into marriage or where they were mislead as to the nature of the ceremony (this could occur where it was held in a language not understood by one of the parties).
Marriages have to be consummated by sexual intercourse between the couple and are voidable if impotency is discovered. Impotency includes an aversion to sexual intercourse. However, a single act of consummation eliminates this possible ground for voiding a marriage (once consummated, always consummated).
Marriages of convenience, such as for social assistance, income tax or immigration purposes, are not voidable on that grounds alone because the courts don't care about the motive for marrying. Attempts to void marriages done on a bet, on a dare, to avoid a court-martial or to get a conditional gift from a will, have all failed.
Religious annulments are not recognized by civic or judicial authorities and are valid only to the extent that they may be recognized by the Church. Divorce or annulment proceedings on one of the above-mentioned grounds are the proper way to affect a legal end to a marriage.

This is just more PR ratings propaganda for both parties.

That's Right    

This story is faker then Kim's face.....come on people there is no proof Kris said that....EXCLUSIVE: Kim Kardashian ‘Keeping up’ with Boycotts, Sears May ‘Reevaluate’ Relationship. Many celebrities are also tired of this mess. Kris remained silent and did not leak what he was going to do so why all of these stories now? I bet some are not true......Team Kris because Kim is a bytoch

Oh so this goody two-shoes Kris means that he would rather remain celibate the rest of his life than to get a divorce from Kim? This is because he is so religious? Is he a priest? Maybe he is gay then, and just wanted to use Kim as a cover. There is the fraud, fraud.


This guy is cracking me up any more, after my head stops feeling like it is going to explode from the stupidity of it all. Was he a virgin when he got married then? If he is so religious, why didin't he follow the command to love his wife as his own flesh, not rip out her toenails and throw her on the bed like a sack of potatoes?


Maybe he is the one playing a big joke and that is why he is alwayas smiling when he is acting so innapropriate. What in the world? He is so snippy and mean, it is unbelievable, and then that anyone fell for him being genuine does sort of crack me up. Sad but true.


I think he is a joke of a husband. Seriously.

Itt's a shame that his religion didn't teach him to get into marriage a little slower than he did. Fool........

He looks like Will Farrell in Step Brothers in that picture. This is getting funnier and funnier.


You know that after the honeymoon, he didn't even want to touch Kim? He stayed away from her hotel room for a whole month before she filed for the divorce. Khloe said he might be gay then. I mean really, Kim is considered one of the most desirable women in the world. I would think men would take advantage of her FOR the sex. Why is he so not interested?


There is actually a picture of him with his hand down his pants while Kim lies in a bikini next to him on his honeymoon. It seems like he has no interest in her at all.


I sort of wish I could see this show just to watch this train wreck. This has to be one of the worst relationships ever.

You have to admire a young man in this day o****e that still has strong religious beliefs about marriage. His faith should keep him strong. He would not have filed for an annulment, or a separation if his legal team did not feel that they have sufficient grounds to do so. It's so sad to see that this young, successful, athlete was truly in love with this money hungry, fame seeking, greedy, ruthless, manipulative porn star and truly wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. She is a woman that truly didn't appreciate him nor the sanctity of marriage. You will be fine kris, whatever happens, you still have supporters! I hope you get chosen by a worthy NBA team, one that will appreciate you. Play hard...win big!
