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 ... ?

Oh, and the good thing is that Kim's baby won't be a bastard --it will be a legitimate baby ('cause she'll still be married to Kris). So many celebs CHOOSE to make their kids bastards.

This isn't a news post - it's an op-ed by a Kardashian. The judge set the date and Kris H has a right to have his case for annulment heard in court before a judge. Kimmie can't get an undisputed divorce just because she wants one - the other party disagrees that it should be a divorce but rather says it should be an annulment based on fraud. A judge has to decide if that claim has sufficient evidence to grant an annulment, no matter what Kimmie wants. I'm sure he's not the first ball player who had to take time off for a court hearing during the season. He doesn't have control over the court schedule.
-
Kim could have settled all this long ago if she just did her deposition and financial disclosure early last year and made sure the unedited footage from the show was made available as requested. The fact that she's been dragging her feet on all 3 issues makes it clear that she has a lot to hide, and these Kardashian posts are getting more and more obviously written by Mama Ten Percent in a futile attempt to influence the court proceedings. Kris H did his deposition (at a time when Kim could be present, as each has the right to be) and his financial disclosure long, long ago, and he is obviously unafraid of other disclosures in a public hearing. Since the Kardashians can't buy him off and don't want us to know the truth, they've been trying for more than a year to smear him in the tabloids and on their fakey pseudoreality shows, hoping they can wear him down. He just quietly and patiently waits for his day in court, and that is what is driving the Kardashian Klan insane.

I hope Kris can prove fraud!! She needs to be taught a lesson in humility and understand that everything is not for publicity!! People actually do things out of love and from their heart

She is disgusting. Why would any woman want inside of her the same color of something that comes out of her after her morning cup of coffee?? And her ugly sister, too?! Yuck.

Says who. I think he'll be able to prove fraud easily. She is just afraid of what he will be able to say once the pre-nup is invalidated. I for one can't wait.
Team Kris.

Kris H hasn't been grabbing the spotlight. He hasn't said anything past his first very simple statement after Kim unilaterally decided to file for divorce. He's waiting for court, not feeding smear pieces to tabloids. He's been asked about it by media but has refused to discuss it in public. He's just been doing his job and has refused to trash Kim the way she's been trashing him at every opportunity, in tabloids and one her fakey tv show.

Dragging out this divorce has done nothing for him other than make him look like the tool that he is. What a loser.

Yup    

As much of a dumbass as he is, I hope he nails her lying, arrogant, entitled fatass to the wall. I hope he does prove how fake her "reality" show is, and I also hope she loses it & gets sued for fraud. She's a pathetic piece of trash & deserves to lose everything...
