Kris Humphries

D DAY

In Kim K Divorce

8/15/2012 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0814_kris_humphries_kim_kardashian_articleLawyers for Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian will square off in court today and -- in technical legal terms -- we're told the judge will force Kris to either s**t or get off the pot.

Lawyers for both sides must tell the judge what they have done to either settle the case or prepare for trial.  As TMZ has previously reported ... Kris has refused to settle, even though he signed what we're told is an iron-clad prenup that gives him zilch in the 72-day marriage.

What makes things puzzling ... even though Kris won't settle, he hasn't prepared for trial. In fact, we know Kris' lawyers have not even taken Kim's deposition ... this, despite the fact the judge said all depos must be in the can by today's hearing.

As we previously reported, Kris' lawyers have said they want to put reality TV on trial, but it's unclear what their end game is because Kris has no damages. He made hundreds of thousands of bucks off "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" as well as the wedding special, and he signed a $24 million basketball contract -- and the notoriety that made him a celeb didn't hurt the negotiations.

Short story ... it's almost certain the judge will not screw around with the case by prolonging it. If Kris doesn't want to walk away with a clean divorce, the judge will almost certainly set the case for trial -- whether Kris and his legal team are prepared or not.

We're not so cynical to believe Kris is dragging things out because he likes the publicity.

Kim is irrelevant and sliding down the pole to oblivion....honestly I don't think I have ever witnessed a celebrity who is so desperate to have a man. Once her shrill voice grates on him for a year or two it will be over, as it is with her public over the age of 14.

TMZ, you just don't get it...KimK is the present day Speidi. soon you will realize just because the media covers their every move, we only have the interest of hating that family. and "celebrity" means people who celebrate/take interest in. NOT the case with these pyschopaths any more than we want to know what lipgloss Casey Anthony is wearing.

Not a K Fan    

Once again TMZ is showing it's bias in relation to the Kardashians (could they be on the Kardashian payroll I wonder?). I suspect K Humphries wants this case to go to court, and many others, including me, are hoping it will too. What are going to find out? Maybe TMZ will learn something if it does.

"It seems that every culture (including less developed and non-Western cultures) includes ideas and codes of behavior related to shame.
I believe that our society in an important sense has become “shameless”, at least on the surface. "

TMZ -- such a**holes! TMZ is the one that had been reporting Kris Humphries was an "unemployed" slacker -- totally Kim's spin, though it was the walkout and all NBA players were in the same boat. Now TMZ's position is he's independently wealthy, and besides, as far as TMZ knows the Kardashians gave him every cent he legallly is entitled to. F*ck off you Kardashians whore machine, TMZ.

Yup    

I hope the judge prolongs this as long as is possible. The piss whore doesn't deserve any special treatment; it'll be nice to see her not be able to point to something & not have it handed to her immediately...

It is funny how people like Bob think that they can accuse Kim of being a fraud with no evidence. It is funny not even their leader of the pack Kris can bring the evidence, neither can his lawyer, but they attack anyone who doesn't agree with them.


I call this revenge of the retards.

Bob tells me that I am short of braincelsls myself, but I should be ashamed for calling someone a retard. Excuse me, but what is the difference? This is pc policing by the ignorant people it was designed for. Is everyone a genius Bob? Are you a genius? Can you not say what someone else is, even in a forum where Kim is called every dirty name there is?


Maybe no one is really short, they are just vertically challenged. Maybe no one is fat, they are just horizontally handicapped. Maybe no one is evil, they are just doing their own thang. Maybe no one is mean except the victims of the name callers, they are just doing their job.


Welcome to the Nazi USA. Run by retards for retards. And have a nice day.

It is obvious from the picture TMZ posted and the very classy opening TMZ wrote that TMZ is supporting the whore Kim.

STFUP    

He simply wants Kim to admit that the entire marriage was a sham, designed specifically to increase ratings for her worthless TV un-reality show.
-
I with him. She needs to admit it. She NEVER loved him. She used him as a publicity stunt, then tried to dump him fast.

B**ch must pay.

The genetic testing results for every STD strain known to humanmankind probably haven't come back yet so he can link his dick rot to her.
