Kris Humphries

Demands $7 Million From

Kim Kardashian

Kris Humphries
is secretly demanding $7 MILLION from Kim Kardashian to walk away from their marriage ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected to Kris tell TMZ ... the bballer -- through his Minnesota lawyer -- has given Kim an ultimatum ... either pay up, or endure an ugly, public trial.

Our sources say Kris and his lawyer have been told to pound sand, and with good reason.

For starters, even if there wasn't a prenup, the marriage lasted a grand total of 72 days, so the community property wouldn't be in the universe of $7 mil.

Second, there was an iron-clad prenup, which provided that Kim owes Kris zilch.

Third, Kris actually MADE MONEY from the marriage. Sources tell us ... Kris raked in around $1 mil from the wedding and the TV special that showcased the nuptials. And Kris made off like a bandit because Kim ended up using a portion of what she got to pay for the ring.

In addition, we're told Kris made somewhere between $250,000 and $300,000 from the Kardashian reality show.

Looks like the Bank of Kardashian is officially closed.

Kris Humphries is a crap bag period. He is not even close to the calaber of a basketball player as Lamar. No one knew who he was until HE chose to hookup with the Kardashians. He was not forced and was aware of everything that was going on. If this was some type of game with Kim he was a willing player. Considering the money he earned, he was a better player at this then basketball.

For all you reading ALL this stories that quote "sources close to" whomever - don't believe it any further than you can throw those sources. THIS is not straight from Kris H's mouth (just like stories of Kim from "sources") and is like a game of telephone - it all gets jumbled by time it gets to then end of the line. Until I see REAL proof any of this is happening I won't believe it - of ANY celeb.

Let me help TMZ out a bit since they enjoy humping Kardasian leg and look foolish doing it.


Under California law, a nullity is granted if the court finds that no valid marriage ever occurred. Along with fraud, grounds for an annulment include bigamy, incest, force or if the couple are under the age of consent.

Humphries's papers say that if he's denied an annulment then he wants a legal separation – not a divorce.

Humphries and Kardashian do agree on one point: the date of separation, which he also lists as Oct. 31.

After a whirlwind three-month engagement, the pair were married in a lavish ceremony filmed for Kardashian's show on E!.

So in other words....Big Jethro is seeking an annulment and Pygmy Butt is seeking a divorce.
Fat Butt can get the worlds greatest divorce lawyer ...erm, I mean her show can hire.....but its the show thats on trial.

October 30th

Kim Kardashian's new husband, Kris Humphries, has reportedly lost a good chunk of money in an investment scam. Even worse, the guy alleged to have perpetrated the fraud was a guest at the Kardashian-Humphries wedding.

Andrey C. Hicks was arrested Friday (Oct. 28) in Canada on wire-fraud charges, TMZ reports. Federal authorities say he ran a $1.7 million investment scam; Humphries reportedly gave him "hundreds of thousands of dollars."

Authorities say the 27-year-old Hicks told investors he was a Harvard graduate who ran a billion-dollar hedge fund. The hedge fund doesn't exist, and though Hicks did attend Harvard for three semesters, TMZ says he was kicked out of the university because of poor grades.

Hicks was one of the hundreds of guests at Humphries and Kardashian's made-for-TV wedding in August.

Kris Humphries and his lawyer are going to look into Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner’s stage conversation about her marriage and possibly use it to prove their marriage was a fraud!

Kim Kardashian doesn’t have anyone fooled with her marriage — including her ex-husband to be, Kris Humphries, who is planning to get his lawyers to investigate a seemingly staged conversation about their divorce between Kim and her mom, Kris Jenner.

“Kris feels that if this is true and the whole conversation was faked, this would help prove that he got married under fraudulent cir***stances,” a source told RadarOnline.com about the talk, which was staged to look like it took place in Dubai — before she announced their divorce.

Added the insider, “Yes, this did occur after the marriage, but this is one clear example that could help sway the judge to grant the divorce on the grounds of fraud.”

Kris stick to your gun re the $7M, you might even deserve more for the hell the family put you thru. Tried to get your attorney fees paid also. There is no $$$$$ figure for the pain and suffering they put you thru. Their brand will be so blemished by the time you drag them thru the mud.

I think he is a secret mole or special agent who is trying to destroy Kim Kardashian any way possible. He is just one nuisance after another. I hope her lawyer swats him down like the pesky insect he is. He demands seven million dollars for what? For messing up her closets and being a big whiney baby who wouldn't even live with her in the same state? OMG. And he calls himself a sincere Christian also, that is just icing on the cake, or mud pie as it were.


Look at how the goofy husband of Katy Perry handled himself. I think he really did get shafted, but he was a gentleman and wasn't trying to get sympathy for being a good guy or some Christian martyr. He wished her well and let her keep her money and left her alone. Kris is out for every ounce of blood he can get, even when he isn't entitled to anything.


What makes him feel so entitled to harrass Kim all the time? Maybe his mother should teach him how to treat women instead of how to bake cookies.

Kris Humphries was a fool to begin with. Who, in their right mind, would want to marry this Armenian piece of trash to start with? She's probably bedded down every black guy within eyesight & earshot. She didn't get that Cadillac size a** from sittin' on it.

Really TMZ... You guys are NOT shoring any bias at all. Kim should pay bc she just used him for her show. That family is just trash and no matter how bad Kris may be, the KKlan are a million times worst. You're going to lose a fan, but I guess you don't care.

NOTICE, the last 2 days of the typical Kardashian and Jonathan smear campaign (oh and add to Jonathan calling in to put his wanting his gift back slam in the other day).

Don't believe their little attempt to further humiliate and smear Kris Humphries, it is the malicious mode of operation that Kris Jenner, Kim and Jonathan use to try to bully Humphries.

So transparent. The minute Kris Humphries speaks out for himself (yesterday to say it is not true that he is not going to represent himself as his own lawyer), then Kris Jenner has her phone line burning up to their lawyer, and out pops more of their sensationalized BS, just like their sensationalized BS on their show.

They will exploit, humiliate, use, hurt anyone for attention and money. They especially will do it to the men in their lives (Bruce, Scott, even Rob, now Humphries) because they want to try to bully their men into spineless servants.
