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.

Perhaps Kris and his legal team haven't prepared anything because, like the reset of the country, they're completely over and bored with Kim "Petri Dish" Kardashian, want to move on, and hope that she'll just fade away. I love how TMZ is trying to make it look like Kris is some kind of villain in all of this. Fact is, he's the one who's going to come out looking good after all is said on done. Meanwhile, Kim sticks her gigantic arse in the camera at every possible opportunity, tells the media that she loves being Kanye's "perfet b***h," and gets photographed with a hickey on her neck. Yup, TMZ, Kim's golden, isn't she (well, okay, if you count those golden showers she takes)?

ANNULMENT! Is Kim paying TMZ to fight her battle?! Since Kim never planned on being married, Hump wants an ANNULMENT!

"the notoriety that made him a celeb"??? wtf? like being a top bb player isn't good enough; he 'got in' with the big stars today (no-talent reality show people) and got lucky or something? this tmz buttkiss of the kardashians is just sick and out of control. I wouldn't want to be named Kardashian when I drop dead and have to face the Maker.

What is funny is this "divorce" has lasted immensely longer than their marriage. Kris should take Kim.K to court, she used him then publicly humiliated him, and then months later publicly humiliated him again. Sure he wants to be compensated but he also wants an Annulment, as he should be granted. The whole marriage was a sham, and she knew it before she walked down the aisle but didn't want to lose her Wedding Special money. They lived together in New York for about 30 days, then she was in Dubai for a week and then she was at court filing divorce docs. Take her to court and make her get a CLUE. The world doesn't revolve around you Kim, and finally someone has the Gall to stand up to your bull!

you people seriously need help. you claim you don't like kim kardashian and don't want to hear anything about her yet on any story about her you people post page after page after page of comments about her. you're obviously reading the articles... so which is it? you don't care and don't want to hear anymore about her or you care and do want to hear about her.

wake up people. if you really honestly don't want to hear about her ever again it's really simple...

STOP reading articles about her. sites like tmz aren't reading your comments, but they are looking at page views and the sheer number of comments. the more comments, the more stories they will continue to put out about her.

STOP watching their shows. i've never in my life seen so many people in one place who claim to never watch the show and then in their comments lay out storylines from said show in minute detail.

STOP watching her sex tape. same as above. everyone here says they hate her and yet they all seem to know the play by play of this video.

STOP buying their merchandise. i wasn't aware that people still shopped at sears, but apparently their sales are up since the introduction of the kardashian line. and the dash stores are doing pretty well.

and ffs, STOP defending kris humphries. i would love to believe that he's as stupid as he comes across, but i don't think that he is. just as much as she know what she was doing when she got into this whole situation, i'm pretty sure that he knew what he was doing. after all, e! aired that god awful promo for one of their episodes when he asked her sister upon first meeting if her marriage was real or for the show. he had some clue as to what was going on.

i don't like the kardashians and i don't like kris humphries and i'm sick of seeing both as every other story on tmz and many other sites... but i like many others realize that the easiest way to get it across to these sites, stores, etc is to simply ignore them until they go away.

And there are people who say that gay's marrying will desecrate the sanctity of marriage. What are these people doing?

Here's an angle for thought.....
`
I have heard that Kanye is gay( I don't know if it's true), thus making Kim his beard. Kim wanting good press gets Harvey and Kanye together for a little "gossip " if you know what I mean. Kim" gets ahead " with good press from Harvey as thanks, and Harvey "gets good head" form Kanye. Plus a little money from Momma Jenner to keep things business like.
`
Who knows stranger things have happened.

Hey is poor little kimmy still wanting Kris to pay her lawyers fees?


Kimmy is shaking in her boots. A Kardashian telling the truth.


Hey it was Kim who insisted on the confidentially clause. Why if the sham/scam marriage was so sincere and honest and truly heartfelt and she really loved him and blah, blah, blah. Yet, she can badmouth him all she wants and now West is in on the badmouthing but Kris can't say a word. Oh, that's right Humphries has class.


Don't care how much money they make because that's all they got. Not an ounce of class between all of them. Money can't buy class never could.

Good grief TMZ seriously how much does that lying, fraudulent, skanky, un-godly, attention whoring family pay you guys. You are actually saying that her marring him for a reality show's sake helped him get a bigger NBA contract. Apparently nobody there has ever played sports, if anything he is a joke because he got played by a lard A$$ and the distraction would hurt his value to a team. With salary caps nobody gets extra money for being a chump. If the lying skank would admit she married him for ratings and committed fraud she could be planning her next TV marriage to the racist.
