Poor Kris Humphries

Has a Fool For a Client ...

Himself!

3/9/2012 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Humphries has filed legal documents in his divorce case appointing himself as his own lawyer
Kris Humphries
has filed legal documents in his divorce case appointing himself as his own lawyer ... TMZ has learned.

Kris -- who makes $8 mil a year with the New Jersey Nets -- wanted his Minnesota business lawyer to rep him in the Kim Kardashian divorce. But in California, an out-of-state lawyer must have a local attorney by his side. So Kris hired a Los Angeles lawyer.

But we found out the L.A. lawyer has withdrawn from the case, so the Minnesota lawyer doesn't have a sponsor anymore. Translation: Mr. Minnesota is persona non grata in court.

As if that's not bad enough for Kris ... guess who he's squaring off with in court? That would be disso-queen Laura Wasser, one of the most powerful divorce lawyers in Hollywood with a celeb roster that includes Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds, Kiefer Sutherland, Stevie Wonder ... get the picture.

Bottom line -- Kris has no chance on this court ...


A source close to Kris tells TMZ ... the bballer does not intend to rep himself. His Minnesota lawyer will look for another sponsor. And this is rich ... we're told the Minnesota lawyer is telling people he's not afraid of Laura Wasser because he's tried hundreds of cases.

I hope one day that Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian feel ALL OF THE PAIN and hurt that they have inflicted upon others that they have used, abused, exploited.

I really do hope they feel that same pain they caused others intentionally and maliciously, back tenfold one day.

Of course he will have a lawyer. He just doesn't need one at a $1,000.00 an hour. They have nothing to divide, no property, no kids. The pre-nup, they keep their own stuff. He just wants this sham of a marriage over.

This is simple divorce but Kim has to play poor little kimmy and milk this for attention for that stupid tv show. This is simply trying to boost the ratings.


She's probably going to ask the Humphries pay her legal fees. God, she is so disgusting.

Kris, HIRE a good attorney. Since the wedding gifts were for BOTH of you, DEMAND that she give the gifts back to the givers! It was NOT up to her to decide that her wedding guests should donate their money ANYWHERE. She is a greedy, self-serving human being. She's disgusting and should hide her head in shame.

Here's a Dash of Reality for you Kim. No person is perfect, in fact God made sure that even the most perfect looking person is flawed in some way. Evidently Kim, you must of felt that God didn't make you perfect because you tried to improve on his work. All that cosmetic surgery and it didn't make anything any better, just bigger! Wonder how he feels about that?
You wanted to be looked at and admired by all but when we took a closer look we saw all the warts. She hates the psoriasis she has and her hair is falling out leaving balding spots. Doesn't she realize that a lot of this is stress related and she is the one bringing this all down on her own head. Here is what Kim needs to do if she really wants to make a change in her life for the better.
1. Get off our friggen TV's.
2. Stay off of the magazine covers
3. Stay out from under the covers.
4. Give your ill gotten gains to charity, not yourself.
5. Stop destroying people to get what you want.
6. Get rid of Mom, for she will be the first person to throw you under the bus to get ahead. She is actually worse than Kimmy.
7. And the number one thing that Kim must do to make everything better and everyone happy is to JUST GO AWAY for good and never come back.

Kim is so shallow.
she knew where Kris family lifes . she knew where Kris team plays and she went through with the Wedding for the money .
She planned already the new york trip and how she wanted to potrait the end of relationship ..
Guess what people are not dumb enough to buy your scam. Kris should sue her .

The slanted reporting I read here reminds me of the early days of the Mel Gibson / Oksana Grigorieva saga. In those days, the articles posted on TMZ were heavily biased against Gibson. Even the photographs selected to accompany posts were complimentary of Grigorieva and showed Gibson in the worst possible light. It was not until the comments section stood firmly behind Gibson, researched and posted about Grigorieva's questionable past and present that the tone of the articles changed.

They are pulling the same maneuver here, attempting to show Humphries in the worst possible light.

The problem with this approach is that people have no difficulty seeing the obvious phoniness that is Kim Kardashian. She has shown that herself on her TV shows and in her behavior. In her zeal to paint herself as victim and Humphries as villain, she showed herself as nothing more than disingenuous.

Regardless of the outcome of their marriage - be it a divorce or annulment - she has discredited herself and the Kardashian Brand. If she can treat her husband in such a manner while stomping on the institution of marriage, who in their right mind would give credence to what she has to say?

All of the Reality "Stars" are deluting the integrity of real movie stars. There once was a time when people wanted to keep all of their dirty laundry under wraps. But now days anything goes, lets show it all. Need more attention? Then why not tell them about the time you cheated on your husband. Or the time that you overdosed or woke up naked in some guys bed that you don't know. Let's tell them about the abuse that goes on in the home too while we're at it. They also push the young up and coming teens into the spotlight while making them dress in as little as possible for ratings. I honestly feel that the reality ho's are the s cu m of the earth and the downfall of our society.
Just say No to the reality show!
