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.

Why does TMZ side with the s***bags. First Tom Cruise and now the Kardashians. Why? Because I guess Kim K and her s*** family feeds TMZ info. Well F you and your tone. Like you have some type of power to spin anything.
Kris H is right to make the biatch pay and not make it easy for the sham she pulled.
Levin and Kardasihians are equally s***my.

What bull****. if you watched the show, Kim obviously jumped into tis marriage out of jealousy of her sisters being married and THAN got to know this guy and ended it. SHE ended this marriage, why are they trying to make HIM pay? How idiotic. It doesnt matter anyway, because in Gods eyes, once you are married, you are married forever, regardless of a divorce...anything after that is just adultry.

I can't imagine what it's like to be divorced after only 2 months of marriage. With that said I think he is being childish and ridiculous. Why would he want anything from her. He earned money off of the show and their wedding special and now ppl actually know who he is. He has a girlfriend and a PHAT contract. It's time for him to let it go and be happy with his life now. No one forced him to be on the show. Get over it!!

Unless there is a valid prenup he is entitled to 50% of her earnings during their cohabitation, and I don't expect him to Russell Brand it and decline.

They both should walk away. The marriage isn't long enough for all the B.S. Kim seem to be doing fine she has a new toy in here life now. I think she should sit on it an give it a rest. An go get tested you all over the place with that Vjj. Chill out.

Actually this guy has a valid point... he was suckered by the money grubbing Kardashian's into this shame of a marriage... Kim knew she wanted out days before, but when through with it anyway. All Kris wants is for it to be annulled ... he doesn't want money, or a Divorce on his "history" ... but if Kim agrees to an Anullment, she basically admits it was fraud. It's not about money. For him anyway. People don't seem to understand that... seems to me he's pretty smart for not letting these people bend him over... I think he's handled himself great.
