Kris Humphries

Suing Kim for Emotional Distress

Is Only Option to Score $$$

12/3/2011 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Humphries Upset
Kris Humphries will not get any money by fighting Kim Kardashian's attempt to divorce him -- but if he really wants to fight, there is something he can do to try and score millions from KK.

Sources directly connected with both Kris and Kim tell TMZ ... there is no point in challenging the prenup -- it's iron-clad and both sides know it. Fact is, if Kris gets his way and has the marriage annulled based on fraud, that would mean there was never a marriage and as a result he would have NO CLAIM to any of Kim's earnings during their 72 days of bliss because no marriage would have existed.

We've poked around and asked some experts what Kris might be able to do to score some cash, if he really wanted to do that. The only plausible scenario is if Kris files a claim against Kim for intentional infliction of emotional distress based on fraud. If he could prove Kim used him as a disposable groom for her reality show -- he could get monetary damages.

So, you ask, what would his monetary damages be? Well how 'bout this? If Kris sucks during the lockout shortened BBall season and gets cut from the Nets -- which is a possibility -- he could blame the distractions on his disastrous marriage and try to sock Kim for the money he'd be out.  Kris pulls in $3.2 mil a year.

Here's the deal. We know Kris is really hurt and feels he was used by Kim. The question -- does he have the stomach to sue her in civil court. And there's this -- the likelihood of Kris winning is about as great as Harvey Levin replacing him on the Nets.

I don't understand all the comments from people that "ohh they feel so bad for Kris, he was used by the Kardashians for publicity" when "In case you people forgot" he asked her to marry him, he bought a ring and asked her. Open your eyes, if anyones guilty for fraud it would be Kris Humphries....

Kris should check out all viable options..including suing KK for fraud..KK is a dispicable person..she admitted she knew before the wedding that it was the wrong thing to do..but because of the $$$ she did it anyway..$$$ is the only language those Kardashian women know and they have no concern what-so-ever for the people they abuse to get it..I would hope the world gets on the band wagon and boycotts every product that is in anyway connected with the Kardashian's..maybe if they aren't getting any $$$ they will fall off the face of the earth and the earth would be a better place for it.

The Kardashian family is nothing but a bunch of blood sucking leetches on society. This family has a serious problem with narcissim. There is also a huge problem with our culture when individuals pay attention to "Keeping Up with The Kardashians." When we permit our children to watch this toxic garbage, it proves society has become a bunch of brainless wonders in an already societal toxic sess pool. And the Kardashians are laughing all the way to the bank, knowing they are fleecing the public. I feel sorry for intellects that have nothing more constructive to do than pay attention to this family of leetches.
