Kim Kardashian

Divorce Turns Ugly

Reality TV On Trial

2/7/2012 12:33 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
The Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries divorce has become a bitter fight, and we've learned Kris' lawyer intends to put reality TV on trial ... but that could blow up in his face.

Sources tell us ... Kris and his lawyer, Lee Hutton, want to "expose the M.O. of reality TV" by proving Kim had no intention of staying married to him, but just wanted big ratings for her reality show.

Now here's the irony. The duo wants to prove their point by asking the judge to allow TMZ and TV stations to broadcast the trial -- something that the judge might find a tad hypocritical ... not that we're complaining.

TMZ broke the story ... Kim filed for divorce on grounds of "irreconcilable differences." Kris has countered that he wants the marriage annulled based on fraud.

Kris has a couple of problems with the fraud claim. First of all, he's the one who proposed. Second, the publicity has made him famous and marketable and he'll make millions more than he would have otherwise.

And another big point in Kim's favor ... We've learned the prenup is extremely long and complicated ... accounting for what would happen years into the future. Why would she go through the time and trouble of having a long prenup if she planned on pulling the plug on the marriage within a few months?

BEYONCE

Flaunts New Mom Curves

In First Appearance Since Baby!

Baby Blue Ivy's mom, Beyonce Knowles, has finally made her post-pregnancy debut!

The 30-year-old singer stepped out last night for the first time since giving birth in to her little girl with Jay-Z last month.

Beyonce put her new curves on display in a tight red-orange Alice Temperly dress, which she paired with some bedazzled Christian Louboutin heels -- proving she's still as stylish as ever since having a baby.

Bey, Jay-Z and her mom Tina were at Carnegie Hall, where the rapper had his first of two benefit concerts for the United Way of New York City and the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.

With mom and dad back out in public, will we be seeing Blue Ivy soon too?!





'Bayou Billionaires'

Humping in Dubai


0203_bayou_billionaires_launch_EX_v2 Here's a photo of the super-rich couple from CMT's "Bayou Billionaires" doing what most oil moguls do best ... spoiling themselves!!!

Gerald and Kitten Dowden -- who became a real life "Beverly Hillbillies" family when they found oil on their property in Louisiana last year -- recently booked a trip to Dubai ... and TMZ has the pics.

Ever since the family struck it rich, they've been treating themselves to the finer things in life ... and when we asked why they decided to travel to the Middle East, Kitty told us ... "because we CAN!”

Mama Dowden says the couple rode dune buggies, participated in an authentic Bedouin dinner ... and of course, treated themselves to a camel ride.

Kitty adds, "We would definitely go back again, it was a great experience!"

Better hope that well doesn't dry up ...

Both Kim and Kris should not put another word about their situation out into the public. Their marriage should be annulled. If they are not trying to use this for publicity, then we should not hear another word about this matter. I wish the Kardashian girl's mom would think about how important money really is compared to one's children.

I'm not to sure about the journalist that wrote this article. The point of a pre nup is because their is a high likleyhood of you not staying and married and you want to take no loss as a result. Pre nup is nothing more than a reminder I can stay or leave when I feel like it.

The arguments against Kris H are ridiculous. Kim didn't right the damn prenupt, that was lawyers. So her involvement vs. intent has nothing to do with that. Also, the fact that Kris proposed does not relieve her from potential "fraud". Her acceptance / promise to marry and move forward as a couple is legally binding and if she did anything to intentionally sabotage that, she's liable. Just the same as if someone asks me to start a business, and I do it with the intent of embezzlement. Kris was up front and discussed his hopes for kids and where they'd live. She changed her mind when she found out she'd have to give up the TV gravy train. Once a whore, always a whore. Kris' a fool for falling in love with a tramp that knowingly has sex with a little ghetto hood in front of a camera and then posts it for the world to see.

This is the results of a greedy family with a program on reality TV. I have no idea what Kris ever saw in that woman, she has the same bad taste as her mother and all of her bad habits.

Oh please! Did anyone else check out that photo of Beyonce ONE MONTH after claiming she had a baby? Don't believe that for a minute! There's no way she had that kid herself. If they got a surragate to carry their baby then what's the harm in saying that? Maybe they adopted? Who knows.. All I know is that is not normal. Her body never looked like she was pregnant except in a few pics and then the next week she looked normal again. Now she's stepping out only 4 weeks after having a baby and looks like her normal self? WEIRD!
