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 ... ?

Ok it is Feb...I would imagine more than one team is on track to hopefully make it to the finals however it seems to be a few months away so I am sure they are pleased to know that TMZ has them there in spite of a number of things that could run amuck. Also no one knows what may happen in court but nice try TMZ. Kim also could end this farce and simply admit what everyone knows that she is fake and all about the money. Why else keep a ring from someone you have no felling for that is just creepy to me and then also keep all the wedding gifts and do some phoney baloney donation that is tax exempt as if many do not know what she was pulling.

I just noticed something peculiar, if you go to the TMZ fb page, there isn't one story about this trashy family. Does that seem weird to anyone else?? It tells me that the person in charge of the website is not in charge of the fb page. So who is in charge of each???

Hopefully someone at TimeWarner is taking note of how TMZ has been made into a Kardashian dog and pony show. As the Kardashians don't really DO anything there has to be more to it than just getting pithy "insider" Kardashian stories about nothing. Who's getting the perk$?

If the judge grants the annulment everything will just go away . If not people will just have more reason to question the direction of this country and hate Kim even more,

If the court finds the marriage was a fraud she may owe the company that sponsored it on tlevision and media outlets that paid for pictures of "the wedding" and stories of "the marriage" a whole lot of money. That's why she is fighting him and that's why she offered him millions to go away. She is going to owe a lot more millions if the marriage is deemed a fraud.

Meanwhile, the KW harlot is in Africa, fleecing the black population,for personal wealth and gain. They do not realize that she is only exploiting them for her continued personal gain!

Regardless of playoffs, move on moron. Reality shows aren't real? Oh my.
Annulment versus divorce? Who cares. He was sympathetic on day 73, now I realize why Kim dumped him.

Kris Jenner never respected Robert kardashian as he wrote in his diary, but she'll use his lawyer / court connections to fight their battles. They slap more gag orders on than anyone. Kris h is just one calling bs. They pay people hush money. I'm still wondering how much kris h lawyer got for quitting

I am losing any respect I had for TMZ by your one sided coverage of anything involving your worship of a two-bit porn star...Ms Kim

Her MOTHER'S biggest mistake was trying to f*** over someone who had the financial resources to call them on their bullshi**. He was totally effed over and used for ratings. That family is trash with money. I hope the trial convinces more people the Kardasians suck as "humans".

Unfortunately KIMMODE, the talentless/fame/money whore will probably win this. She used this guy for ratings for her fake, scripted reality show and the 18 MIL she received for the scam wedding was icing on the cake. This skank admitted she had reservations about marrying him but did it anyway. Gee, wonder why. (sarcasm) Best news is that the scripted, fake KKTM show is not doing great in ratings. Only 1.3 MIL viewers last week and KUWTK had 3.6 MIL for the finale. Quite a drop in viewers. KIMMODE has gotta be worried, not to mention PIMP MOMMA KRIS. LMAO!!!
