Kris Humphries

I'd Miss NBA Playoffs ...

To Screw Kim in Court

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 ... ?

For the love of pete, Harvey, get your nose out of kin's ass. It's so unbecoming for an adult man to do this with his own show.

This situation flabbergasts me. I understand where Kris is coming from in the sense that he obviously doesn't believe in divorce and Kim could care less. But what was he thinking getting married to Kim Kardarshian?! Everyone knows that the Kardashians don't care about anything but money and fame. Even Kris knew that. His ex-gf, Bianka, got interviewed after the split and said that before Kris met Kim, he refused to watch the show and called the Kardashians "trash"! So, all of a sudden, he meets Kim, and his good sense goes out the window? Seems to me that he was in it for the money and fame too, although he was more committed to staying married and Kim literally just wanted the engagement ring, the money from televising the wedding, and the publicity. But, why'd he pick her if he wanted a long-lasting, traditional union?! Especially knowing that she had already been divorced once when she married him? Do the math. Kris got blinded by the opportunity to have a beautiful, famous, wealthy wife, "forgot" about the fact that Kim and the Kardashians are only interested in money, and now wants vengeance for being the losing party in a game he could never have won.

The media is that terrified of Kris Jenner, huh? WOW. Good for him for putting religion first. He doesn't believe in divorce and all she had to do was admit her fraud. He's not out for money(despite the tabloids pathetic claims otherwise). He just wants an annulment. What a little bitch. She deserves Kanye
