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?

The article's assertion about a long prenup confirming Kim (the whore) did not plan on a divorce is nonsense. It confirms it in my mind. I hope Kris wins as he has been made out to be the fool so far. Sad that he can't tell the truth due to confidentiality agreements, though the lawsuit will allow him to get past those agreements and air the truth publicly. By the way, did I mention Kim is a whore?

I think they are both a fraud looking for ratings to pad both of their pockets.

Do you people in America really care what happens to Kim Kardashian? Of course she is a looker and I hear the reality show is popular but come on!! While you are all being sucked into this reality TV stuff, the politicians are getting away with passing bills and laws that you later say"When did that happen". Wake up America, don't be fooled by TV!

PRECISELY because of that.
Even the way you ask is not very bright. Get a brain.

What is Kris thinking?! He is so stupid. He could have just quit while he was ahead. He wants to expose the M.O. of reality tv? Oh, please! Now he is basketball player turned vigilante? He's digging his own hole for cash, what a joke.

Personally, I think the story lines are real, with a few minor set up situations to add interest. I don't think the marriage was fake...And even if it was. Who gives a ****! Its a freakin sitcom people! Just entertain me! I watch the news for the real stuff! K.H. is so stupid. He's got talent and education... I guess you cant learn or buy common sense.

We all know the truth no matter what they do on reality tv. Kris H. is safe now thanks to his mothers prayers. Can you even imagine Kim K. being the mother of your grandchildren eeewwwwwwwwwwwwww. God is good. Kris H. will be just fine. And Kim K. will always be her empty headed self because some things never change.

Great points TMZ. Anyone with an extensive prenup is definitely into the marriage for the long haul and anyone who is fraudulently induced into, say, purchasing something, just blew their fraud claim. That's exactly how it works.

I can't stand Kim. She thinks she is so hot, but she is not. Inside ur ugly. Pride can make u deep ugly. Don't hope for anything bad for her, but I hope she wakes up and quits listening to her mom.
