Kris Humphries

I'd Miss NBA Playoffs ...

To Screw Kim in Court

EXCLUSIVE

Kris Humphries
is so hell-bent on humiliating Kim Kardashian ... he's willing to screw over his team and risk the NBA championship ... just to face off with her in court.

A judge has set a May 6th trial date for K & K's long-awaited showdown. Kim has wanted a simple divorce for nearly a year-and-a-half, but Kris wants an annulment on grounds she allegedly defrauded him ... he also wants to prove her reality show is fake. 

Problem is  ... Kris' team, the Brooklyn Nets, are on track to score a spot in the 2013 Playoffs -- which run from April 20th to June 20th.

Since the trial could last 2-3 days ... Kris has several options:

1. Settle the case BEFORE it goes to trial so he can play in the playoffs.
2. Play in Playoff games but miss the trial. It can go on without him, though it puts him at a handicap.
3. Go to the trial and let his team down

Sources close to Kris tell TMZ ... the NBA'er has already made up his mind -- if the Nets make the playoffs, and the trial falls on game days ... he'll ditch the games.

Now the really stupid part.  There's no way Kris is going to win this trial.  The judge will grant the divorce and Kris will get no money, because of the prenup (and the fact the marriage lasted 72 days).   As for what Kris will risk ... his 2-year, $24 million contract.

What's that saying? Bros before ... ?

Kim    

For all you that believe Kris Humphries is dumb. Think again. 1. He grew up in Minnesota. Minnesota public school graduates are rated extremely high when compared to other public school graduates nationally in other states. 2. Minnesota high school and college sports regulations have very high grade standards or you are kicked off. No matter how good you are. Google it. My cousin from Florida was a starter for the Gopher football team. He couldnt keep up and was kicked off. He now plays for another college as a starter. 3. Kris was accepted into Duke and the University of Minnesota. Not easy. 4. His father (including his mother) are successful business people. Now as far as him being swindled. This can happen to us all when we are in love and blinded by love. Look who is at risk of losing the most when they took their oath and you will know who was truly in love and who was the swindler.

The one who is "hellbent" is the one knocked up by another man in an adulterous relationship. Team Kris.

Clearly we know what side TMZ is on.. I want to know why KIM has not given a deposition.. Dont give me the crap baby stress.. If she can fly all over the country twice a week that is baby stress & were not talking two hour flights.. she keeps going out of the country so as not to give one apparently.. Harvey maybe a lawyer but IM not so sure Kris isnt intitled to something here.. lets see what bomb comes next.

You don't think it is messed up that they would make the trial at a time that would be departmental to his career? His moral compass is obviously much bigger than the Kardashian's. Kris just cant fathom loosing 24 million to prove a point she would sell her kids for a million herself. He has substantial evidence proving his case, I guarantee. People are trying to go way out of their way to keep him quiet. Maybe he can sue E for a 100 million easy and basketball can then be a hobby! lol He has morals that must kill you fake people! You picked the wrong guy for your little show!

Don't be stupid TMZ. The judge decides the date. That was the first available date. Clearly, you are biased toward the Kardashian family.

Do you honestly think we don't already know that? It is mutually beneficial for TMZ and the Kardsahians to team up together. It's all about money, we all know that. Harvey, normally I do like you, but You have lost my respect on this one...Team Kris H.

Why wouldn't he win his annulment?

Even if he doesn't win, the fact that he's manage to drag this out for song--and likely flustered and scared Kim (he must know something potentially disastrous for her to fight this as much as she had, particularly since money and possessions aren't even at stake.) is a mini win itself.

Don't disagree that this marriage was a TV stunt, but at this point, cut your losses and get out, unless Kris H. has something in his back pocket, to use against her (Kim) at trial! Time will tell....

Clearly, Hump and his outta town lawyer do not understand California law. 1. This is a no fault state. There is a prenup. This is a trial by judge not jury. There will not be a parade of witnesses. Reality TV is not on trial. This is a divorce. Fraud is very hard to prove. The judge is not going to allow the Hump Revenge Circus to come to town. This will be a simple dissolution. I am on Team No one. There is no one to root for in this clusterf.....
