Kim Kardashian

Kris' Media Whoring

Is Keeping Divorce Alive

5/4/2012 9:42 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0504_kim_kardashian_kris_getty
Kris Humphries is the opposite of upset over his divorce from Kim Kardashian -- he's loving the attention ... so says Kim's lawyer.

Disso-Queen Laura Wasser appeared in court today, saying there has been no progress in settling the spoils over the 72-day marriage.  Kind of ridiculous, since there was an iron-clad prenup in which Kris and Kim have all of their assets separated.  Kris is challenging the prenup, claiming Kim defrauded him by allegedly tying the knot ONLY for TV ratings -- good luck with that.

Wasser told the judge ... media attention and Kris' personal feelings seem to be keeping the case alive.  Translation -- he wants the publicity of a drawn-out divorce.

The judge said depositions are now fair game, which means Kim can now be deposed about her motivations for marrying the b-baller.

Wasser also said Kim will be requesting that Kris pay her attorney's fees if they have to go to trial on Kris' fraud allegations and she wins.

BTW, the judge mentioned there's a dispute over jewelry.

Why isn't this divorce getting more coverage? Seems media like TMZ and the Daily Mail who obviously love the KarTRASHians and print all these non-stories about what they're wearing, should be on top of this. Why the secrecy?

It's funny how Kris says that Kim married him for the ratings but the show had good ratings without him. If anything I think Kris has it backwards, we didn't know who the hell he was before the wedding. This is about money and that's it. He can put any spin on it but it still comes down to money. I wish the judge would decide on just the prenup and just put an end to this. He was all for the ratings when he was getting paid by "E" and he was fine with it then. He's just ticked because the gravy train stopped. Get a life Kris and stop humiliating yourself. Kris is the only one making himself look foolish.

So, if Kris is media whoring, doesn't that make TMZ a John? And again, regarding this "iron-clad" prenup you (M.W.) continue to flog. If it were so man in the mask wouldn't this ordeal actually be over by now? Seems to be a little something that we are leaving out here, perhaps a more than a dispute about jewelry, tee-he. Congratulations on actually reporting something about these two that loosely fits the definition of news though. For a while there it was about their every bowel movement. Seriously, I think you did a story about the Teepee in his Minnesota home. My finger was on the button there for a minute.

Also, just because someone gives a deposition doesn't mean it is the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Second to last. Saying Kim wants attorneys fees is a cheap distortion on your part. Kris requests them as well. That is par for the course the winner always wants the looser to pay the article seems to omit that fact. One final correction, Kris wants a long drawn out annulment, not divorce. Isn't that what this whole thing is about?

America get real :)
Who needs publicity most ?
Why do you think Kim is with Kayne West?
Simply because she know that many TRUE American women were against her breaking up with Kris. She also knew,that she was losing the publicity war. So she created another avenue of publicity. By being with ignorance Kayne
Kim is with Kayne for herself, as she is trying to set herself her own 74 days marriage record.
But Kayne is in it (WITH THIS OTHER MAN'S WIFE) for he knows she will sex him up.
GLADLY ! For Kris
SADLY :) For Kim. Though Kayne is ignorant. But, he is no fool. There will be no 1 day ,1 hour or 74 days marriage with Kayne and Kim. It's not in his future picture.

KRIS, KILL THIS 'LAWYER UP' DIVORCE GRABBING. GET OUT QUICKLY, AND MOVE ON
YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT YOU AS A MAN,YOU HAD DARE TO GO, AND WENT, WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO THREAD.
REPENT AND MOVE ON.
KRIS MORAL AMERICA GOT YOUR BACK

Well, well! What an affhole attorney! Then what in God's name does this crazy Wasser attorney think of her own client is she thinks that Humphries is a media-whore.
Just cheap, classic courtroom intimidation. I hate all the kardashians. They think they are above the law and connected to big shot judges and lawyers. I hope Humphries gets the annulment. Go Kris!!

...and yes I know what a deposition is, but people lie under oath all the time. Its called perjury. Something that K.K. is about to do in addition to her fraud.

Ok, no really, one more then I'm done. Hope it doesn't double post...but forgive me if it does.

Disso-Diva should set up a new website for K.K. along with a Twitter account and Facebook to raise money for her clients divorce trial... she could call it KKLegalCase.com, shameless.

Nice to see even her lawyer is having a laugh! Saying that Kris is the media whore only makes Kim look more pathetic! Her lawyer has to know this! I bet she just wants her money. Probably goes home at night and says the same things about Kim that everyone else says. She's a whore, she's trash, etc. etc. while counting the $$$ she's making from her! Silly Kim lol

Yeah... Except I haven't seen him in the news for a few weeks except with his fan who is sick with cancer... I see Kim in the news almost daily shopping. I don't see her doing community service or hanging out with a sick fan

I hope he goes after everything he can get, I mean I don't see him out there whoring like her, and I really do believe she tricked him and she should pay for it.
This is a bad person

He hasn't said any thing about this cheap ho, but she and her family have been out there since they broke up throwing dirt at him. Kim the skank has been on talk shows and every place else blabbing about her "marriage"
