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?

Second, the publicity has made him famous and marketable and he'll make millions more than he would have otherwise.


That sentence right there sums up the Kardashians. Publicity has made them famous and marketable, but publicity has a way of turning around and biting you in the azz. It will also show your true colors that you thought were hidden. There are two sides to publicity just like there are two sides of Kim. Not to bad on the outside but ugly as hell on the inside. Acts all sweet and innocent on the outside but on the inside resides a bitch. So looking at what is happening to the Kardashians you could say that the publicity is killing them.

The whole line that marriage existed before governments is utter bull****t. You know what marriage was then, it was a contract between a man and the woman's father.It used to be about owning a woman and joining families together for power and property.

Do not forget,Kim is a trained femme fatale.She can come off as "sweet,quiet,reserved" for the public (& the men.)A master at hiding the venom in her mind and heart.She set the trap and lured him in with her obvious sexual allure.She manipulated a proposal of marriage from the unsuspecting victim.

Please. Kim didn't spend any time on this. She had her mommy and her lawyers do all "the complicated stuff". She probably didn't spend a full minute worrying about anything other than her makeup, hair and clothes.

That prenup being long doesn't help the defense. It is probably the same prenup Khloe used.

Kris Humphries is an idiot and is proving that he is the one all about the money, not Kim. I hope the prenup is upheld and that he gets nothing from Kim. I'm surprised to admit that Kim was the one who tried to save the marriage not Kris; all he did was constantly insult her run back to Minnesota. The only way he comes out of this with something is if he admits that he’s slightly retarded and perhaps didn’t know what he was signing.

If I were Kim I'd be changing my grounds for divorce to emotional abuse. The guy is a big kid who has never had anyone tell him no. Or maybe she can claim he was the one committing fraud, because after all he knew what he was in for, nobody knew anything about him.

This was essentially a quickie Vegas marriage on a bigger scale, they went into it without realizing what they were getting into and now they're both regretting it. But while Kim is admitting her mistake and trying to rectify it, Kris is just refusing to admit he could ever do anything that doesn't fit in with his supposedly Christian beliefs. Just grow up for once in your life and move on!

Doesn't everyone realize this was part of the plan all along. The marriage was a sham and so is the divorce!
