Kim Kardashian

Divorce Turns Ugly

Reality TV On Trial

2/7/2012 6:00 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?

Kim is no fool - a business woman first and a publicity junkie second. Hope it works out for both of them

So what if she had a long pre-nup? All she needed to do was pay a few thousands to her lawyers to draw it up, it's not like it's any extra effort on HER part to create the illusion of genuine intentions. What about this woman is NOT fake??

the prenup is mere window dressing, and a hedge against her deciding to keep him after she had milked all the publicity she could from it. she divorced him when he was unemployed and idle, at loose ends, due to a lockout of players in a strike. she proved she was not in it for anything but herself when she dumped him at that stage. a woman in love sticks by her man, employed or unemployed, in sickness and in health, till death do they part. that's what she promised, and she didn't deliver. fraud, pure and simple. she had no intention of seeing this marriage through. it was just for show and not for the long haul. she claims she wanted to pull the plug before saying I do, but she didn't. That's on her.

Kris needs to use all the reality Tv and the Movie she had
showing her being a freak with other men. She really did'nt
love him the money was all she wanted. She is a disgrace and
wearing some decent clothing would be nice.

If this goes on TMZ and TV America will have broken completely with any values of culture that sustain a nation or people. In other words, we have sunk to a low unseen if the public is flooded with this reality barf on their tv sets. Not to mention the integrity of marriage publicly stripped apart. This is a new low ~ Hollywood has lost it's tinsel and is just a dump if this goes forward.
