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?

No no no. He needs to just bow out gracefully so he comes out looking better than her. Unless he is POSITIVE with no doubt at all, then I would just leave well enough alone. He'll make himself look like an idiot.

Kardashians have become nothing more than a joke...the punchline of many jokes. Worse than Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton combined.

TMZ dead wrong, The prenup is that way for just that, to show that her intentions were good and yes this is fake, she took advantage of a moron. He WILL win and no he will NEVER make millions on anything except basketball. Are you suggesting he will have a TV show? How will he make money, he has no interest in fame. Its TMZ who will loose if he wins in the long run.

Wow. Is TMZ that dumb?

The last sentence of this news post is EXACTLY what you would do if the marriage was a TV sham.

Why is TMZ so blatantly on team KK? That reality show did everything it could possibly do to feature in a sympathetic light, and she still came across as a selfish, whiney, narcissistic brat. Humphries should get his annulment and be able to move on. It obviously means something to him from a religious perspective. KK didn't even respect the institution of marriage and the commitment it represents to even try counseling or break up with him to his face.

Kims Q score is a NEGITIVE 53 (what companies use to rate a personality's likeability, sencerity so forth to endorse and promote their products) that score is off the charts horrible. Public despises her/Kardashians. (Kardashians never responed to the report) because it's true.

Mattel dumped the Kardashian Barbi Dolls (big time loss) She is not getting any offers to endorse products. That negitive 53 Q score. Companies won't go near her.

Her lawsuite against Old Navy (The Gap) claiming $20 million in damages for a commercial that had nothing to do with her whatsoever, claiming her 'likeness' was used and caused damage to her name and image, brand and so on. Of course The Gaps lawyers will dive into her/their finances to counteract the bogus suite. Kardashian can claim all she want's she can't proove it.

Lawyers consider her "Libel Proof" meaning she has done so much self-damage to herself, reputation, image, brand and so on. Sueing someone else for damages Kim/Kardashians did to themselves. No. Kimmy, proove your $20 million claim. Oh, that's right you can't.

The thing is that she also admitted that she had doubts about marrying him BEFORE the wedding and that she went through with it because she felt pressured and THAT IS FRAUD! Regardless if she intended to stay married when she did the prenup or because he proposed...

I bet momma Kris wants to kick Kims azz right now. What right does Kim have of destroying all she has worked and pimped for. Even though Kris probably came up with the whole wedding scenerio herself. Kim jumped the gun on the divorce and screwed up Kris's future plans for future stories of fighting and miscarrages and blah blah blah....And Kris is also probably behind all the bad mouthing of Kris to take heat off of Kim which also backfired. Kris has been spinning yarns faster than a spider, trying to fill all the holes in this leaky dike that is about to collapse under it's own weight. So in Momanger's eyes it's all Kim's fault that it is falling apart. They are all so delusional.

Kim K is should actually be looked up to. As an inspiration to young women with immigrant parents. All you have to do is video tape sexual escapades with anyone that raps and pretend that it leaked on the web and BLAM. You have a clothing line at K mart. Amurrika wut a ****ree.
