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.

What a snotty little attitude you have there, TMZ, you sure Kim didn't write this article for you?

They probably left out that he is asking for his half of what was made off of Kim's mockery of a wedding. Thought it was reported that Kris Jenner was Humphries manager and stiffed him. His Minnesota lawyer is not going to have him request it if it is not DUE to him fairly and squarely.

So looks like Kim and her Mommy got caught in another lie yet again, "we didn't make anything off of the wedding".

Give the gifts back you selfishly registered for Kim/Kris Jenner (you even blew up at Humphries for being late to your "entitled" wedding registry on the show.) For how dare he not have expensive china and crystal on his mind like you two did, to stiff wedding guests with.

Why do Bruce, Scott or Rob even stick around any of those Kardashian women, the way they treat men is abusive and wrong. Selfish women.

This guy is such a tool....How desparate do you have to be to marry a guy who, when he gets stressed, sucks his thumb. Whenever they would fight or he would feel pressured by someone (Khloe) his hand would move to his face and it LOOKED like he was sucking his thumb. He's a loser and she shouldn't have to give him a penny. I just can't figure out how she didn't see it BEFORE the wedding...it would have been way better for her publicity to CANCEL the wedding than to go through with it and then annul. jmo

The biggest mistake KIM's mom is doing to believe he is for the money . We all know that Kim makes no decision lol . Her mom freaks out that he wants her money .

All Kris H. wants is revange not money lol and if the Kardashians go for a fight they will lose .
Kris H. wants it public and humiliate KIM because his whole family and friends showed up to the wedding. And she keeps all the gifts
He wanted to take it serious and she faked it

Kris just shut up.You have no case.You are a loser.Sitting home,let Kim bring the bread home and not even perfoming your duties under the nuptials.
Kim should take to trial,more behind the scene reality -show material for her, besides media circus at trial.She can have so much fun at trial implying that Kris is GAY,which he is not.

Im sure his lawyer is putting that figure in his head, probably looking for a payday himself. Chris needs to just walk away from everything. I'm sure he profitted from the reality show and wedding as well, so he needs to just get his divorce and continue with his life. Plus, from the show, he really seemed as if that whole lifestyle was annoying to him. It seemed the only thing they had in common was that theyre both attractive people. I never saw a common foundation. Maybe he was excited he was getting a hot wife? He got married after only 6 mo of knowing her too. I really don't think he or she was truly in love. I think Chris knows that deep down

No matter your opinion of Kim or her mom we know they are no dummies. I'm pretty sure Kris won't get his demands and if he says too much he'll probably owe them money. He needs a lawyer. Someone to explain to him what he can and cannot do based on contracts he signed. And everyone saying she needs to give the ring back...to whom is she returning it? SHE PAID FOR IT. It's worth almost all he has made so far in his NBA career. No way in Hades he bought that ring

What in the heck do the Kardashians have on TMZ that you continue to pander to them? Yuck. I usually like you guys for your unbiased realistic reporting but you clearly have some sort of blind spot with these superficial publicity mongers. Enough with trashing Kris Humphries. Dude deserves more than $7m for pain and suffering!

He's trying to rake in as much money as he can by any means like kimmy taught him to do, so why shouldn't he be allowed to do the same?

I thought and still think that Kris and Kim were PERFECT for each other. Reality show producers should dig deep and pay them like $20 million each to do a series of shows over a year where they try to work through their problems as a married couple. Even if they still divorce, investors will make xxxx millions because few of you can look away from the life story of people with more money; but the same kind of problems as you and me. Well, not me but most of you... :-)
