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 not kidding anyone, it was faux marriage. As for prenup, she's smart enough to know she should make it look good in case it blew up in her face and the sham marriage was revealed. She's do anything for publicity and thinks the public are fools for believing it. She's got enough people fooled into buying her cheap clothing & accessories lines.

I think that Kris is insufferable and enough to drive anyone crazy. How dare he say that reality shows are a scam, so he goes to court to make a reality show to prove it? He makes no sense. I don't know if he is retarded or just evil and playing a dumb redneck creep getting over on a city slicker. Maybe people are backing him up and it is all a part of a plot to harm the Kardashians.

If he is so Christian, why does he get some much glee out of tormenting Kim? Everything he does toward her is annoying or stupid. He is like a redneck fungus that you can't get rid of.

of course she had a prenup, if married one day one month, she had to protect her scheme and money. he could write tell all, demanded money or even moved his belongings into her home. it was her mother who was behind the prenup, she didnt sell out her family just to have some reality show husband get a dime of it. i hope he gets it annulled. then he can say what he wants. like the so called party he had while she was away with all the e network people there(it was set up by e). all those newly entered comments from kim and family inserted, into show to make them look as if they labored over the divorce. poor dead father saying he made kris j cheat and giving kim the go ahead for divorce (that was so sickening, i felt sorry for the poor deceased man) thru that medium. they would do anything to keep money and attention coming, of course she had a prenup

I hope Humphries and his lawyers can expose Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner. I read he may sue Kris Jenner because she had been his manager and breached a contract and he never saw any money or something from things she lined up for him? Not sure if that is true or not.

I hope he can stick it to her and expose her for the fraud that she and her mother are. Tired of TMZ being a Kim Kardashian site. Does she pay you guys?

Durr even a marriage for TV is still a legal binding marriage, hence why her mother and their lawyer had that prenup. Kim used humphries as a groom prop in a TV wedding. Kris Jenner and Kim even staged that limo ride talk on the Dubai show, months after Kim and Kris split up, it is all edited, scripted and to try to make Kim look the victim and to look good, all the while Kim, Kris Jenner and their PR Team worked hard to bash Humphries in the headlines and try to put him in a bad light on that show. Kim made herself look bad though instead, IMO.

Team Humphries!

The 'extremely long and complicated' pre-nup was drawn up by Kim's mother/manager and attorney. Once Kris Jenner heard the news that Kris wanted to marry Kim, she rushed that proposal, and wedding just in time for the next season on E. Talk about the 'bums rush'. For those that tuned in, Jenner ran the entire show , including picking out the tuxes for the groom and his party. She neglected his side of the family entirely, it was all her production. It's a shame Kim and Kris can't settle this out of court. It's pretty simple to end a marriage. As for the annulment, Kris can get that anytime. I'd cut bait Kris Humphries and fold. There's no need to add further drama and stress for the tabloids.

GOD you are so disgustingly in the Kardashian's pocket, they just dictate directly to you. I'm going to a KKFF site -- Kim Kardashian Free February. Yes, they exist.

i dont know where people are getting info that kris h. has trashed kim k, i have never seen anything written about kim by kris. he is an honest young man working hard to make a living, just wasnt jaded enough for kim. he wasnt her normal type boyfriend (just with her to use her) he was inexperianced and niave (because of his lifestyle).

Kourtney's real father is a Kapuchin monkey.

The fact that he proposed isn't relevant to a claim of fraud cuz he's claiming he was duped and wasn't a party to the fraud. And the fact that Kim's lawyers threw in the kitcken sink prenup doesn't have any bearing on what her state of mind was when she said "I do"... which is what is really at issue here, right?

The lengthy prenup was just one of the props for the wedding... and she didn't write it, the lawyers have standard forms they fill in & customize, lol.
And they probably want TV cameras in court to keep those lying Kartrashys honest about the proceedings. Doh!
