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 ... ?

He needs a psychiatrist, this is sounding like an obsession. Plus if I were the owners of his team, I'd fire his ass in a New York minute. If they pay him $24M and he has that attitude about his boss, he needs to be fired. And put in a mental institution. I've gone from hating Kim over this to seeing exactly why she dumped this nut bag. He could have had the whole world in his hand if he'd have just taken it like a man and walked away. This spoiled entitled child routine is getting a little lame.

All Kris H. has to do is keep being a legal pain in the ass. Kim K isn't getting less pregnant, she'll start to stress out, and start worrying that it will effect the baby and then Kanye will step up with an undisclosed cash settlement. Ex wives do this all of the time after hubby gets a new girlfriend. They want to fight it tooth and nail and the guy usually relents to get on with his life. Looks good on that piss mop.

I used to have a ounce of sympathy for this guy, BUT now I can see why Kim wanted out. In watching the show, he always seemed very disrespectful towards her, almost to the point where he wanted to make her feel beneath him. Douche bag needs to get over it.

This is all a bunch of lies that Mama Kardashian put out to make him look like a jerk and Kim the poor victim. Don't believe a word of it.

OR....He simply requests a continuation/postponement due to his employment responsibilities (which would easily be granted) and the case would continue at a later date. She could request a bifurcation. As usual, TMZ never gives the whole story.

Literature    

Not every TMZ article is based on legal fact finding. Most of what is on this site as is with many other gossip sites is for entertainment purposes only. They have taken their shots at Kim in the past and I am sure they will again. Some are incensed that TMZ articles have a different point of view than many of the posters. Maybe, just maybe they are just trying to counterbalance all of the hate filled comments. Or maybe they are just doing it to ensure their website gets the traffic like a number of other sites like it. Not for journalistic integrity. It is working!

I still can't decide if he's that much of a chump to think that she really loved him or if he was going along with the plan and things went south when mama decided to change things up.

Everyone knew the marriage and this show is a scam. By saying all this, He just looks like an idiot for not knowing it.

Every one knows that "Keeping up with the Kardashian's" and all the other Kardashian reality shows are directed by the producers in terms of what they want for a scene.


The season that Kris Humphries was on was a laugh at best. There were scenes that were re-shot, voice overs and Humphries knows this.


If Kim wants this divorce so badly then she should grant him the annulment!

I hope Kim has bodyguards. She is realty hated and that alone is scary. I hate her for what she stands for especially how she got so rich for nothing. She just needs to go away for her own sake. She has enough money for five lifetimes. Enough is enough. What is she thinking ? Give Chris what he wants you know what you did was wrong. Stay safe and take care of yourself most importantly your new baby.
