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 want to know how much money Kim Kardashian is paying both TMZ and Perez Hilton to speak of her favorably...it's extremely obvious money has been exchanged.

I hope Kris takes the bitch to the frigging cleaners...This whole marriage was a Kardashian sham for ratings & money. Kim has full editorial control on what will be seen & said regarding the "divorce" on upcoming Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and you know Kim will make herself look like a victim, which she is not....GO FOR THE JUGGLER KRIS

TMZ, do you really not have a picture of him in a Nets outfit? Instead you need to do a stupid Photoshop?

Kris Humphries definitely has a case: Kim KarTrashian's whiny nagging voice, paying more attention to her greedy mother for advice, and looking as scary as her sister without spending 2hrs applying a ton of makeup everyday, this most certainly caused emotional distress.

Most of you need to learn how to read. This article DOES NOT say that Kris H is going to sue Kim K. It is TMZ's way of stirring up the pot again. It is an article SPECULATING what he COULD do not what he IS doing. Right now all he is doing is filing for legal separation and annullment. Before you all comment, don't base the article on the headline.

I actually wish Kris would make some money out of this. Kim seems to have made millions of dollars off her "marriage" why can't he?

Everyone knew JOLLY GIANT was inmature but Kim and her family are CIRCUS FREAKS on the way to disaster as human beings and family "selling their souls for the dollar"
Kim and family are on a roller coaster without wheels.
