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?

I think she exactly knew she would not be in marriage for long and that is exactly why there was a long prenup! Come on Harvey how did you miss that one! Remeber Britneys 58 hour wedding without a prenup? If Brits 58 hour flame wouldnt of signed the annulment he would be swimming in money today.

Lovely "photo ops" on the Italian honeymoon.After the desired publicity was achieved and "the honeymoon scenario",was complete,her attitude toward her "husband",became "GO away,you bother me." Nuff said.

Ok, let me see if I have this straight: they dated for like 3 weeks before becoming engaged, had a million dollar tv wedding, then she decides Kris is not the guy for her 75 days into the marriage. I do agree that Kris is a totally midwest corn fed kind of guy as opposed to her NY/LA camera lifestyle. She knew who he was before she married him, but I am sure he didn't really know who she was. And isn't this her third marriage????? WTF?????

How stupid do you think the public is:First off..The prenup. everyone is bitching about was written weeks before the marriage proposal.Everything had to be plan out before filming began.Ladies..How hard is it to get a man to propose.Kris Humphries was wrong not only by his ex-wife plus her family..Also by the media.Thanks media and Kardashian for all the horse crap and helping to destroy the America values.Money can not nor will it ever buy back a person integrity.Thanks to people like the Kardashian and the media.You, just showed the world.Lot of people don't have any values.

If my voodoo dolls are working, Humphrey Dumphrey will have a great fall! His head is absolutely huge and you would think there would be a few brain cells, but this Frankenstein lookalike has none.

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.


Mattel dumped the Kardashian Barbi Dolls (big time loss) She is not getting any offers to endorse products. That negitive 53 Q score. Her own doing.

Ok. Back to bashing Humphries

Damn, it must not be easy to be the most hated family in America. I think this family is dangerously close to being taken out by some lunatic if they keep getting publicity. Harvey, you need to tone it down with these people for their own safety.

Of course the pre-nup would be long and detailed, mostly IF she intended to end it quickly - no loopholes. I think they should show it, but, unfortunately, Kartrashian would lie and play the victim. It is obvious in the show that the footage is heavily edited in favor of Ms. Big Butt Pee Show and her Minions. She is a disgusting, vile, pig who will live life as a twice divorced, fat, ugly, soiled, single ho.
