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 is going to shoot himself right in the foot for all his big ego. He will never beat the Kardashian family at head games. The one thing he has going for him careerwise is basketball. If he destroys that, he can go back to MN and maybe work as a valet.


He is hell bent on proving that Kim is a faud, so he does that by marrying her, treating her like dirt, and then saying she was wrong to leave him. He isn't acting hurt, he is acting like he knows better than her and her legal team. All he really focusses on is bringing down reality TV.


He doesn't realize that reality TV has nothing to do with his own marriage behavior. He made his bed and got kicked out of it, it is not the fault of people making reality TV shows.


I don't think the show is that staged if at all. Maybe they adjust their lives for the effect, but I think that is how they live and act. It looks real to me. Strange, but real.


He is not a very nice person from what I can see. The only reason he got on reality TV and got famous is because of Kim. He should be grateful, but maybe he doesn't understand that concept.

The marriage only lasted 72 days, so why should he not get an annulemnet? She refused to live with her husband in Minnesota, knowing that that's where his home was. Other than the "show for the cameras" trip to Minnesota, did she EVER give his home a chance?
IF she truely, wants to have this baby, well it's already out of wedlock, but not be married to another man when she gives birth, then there is a very, very simple solution.
GIVE KRIS the annulement. Really, it's in her court to END the whole thing immediately. Why wouldn't one sacrifice that for her child?? Why?
If she doesn't give Kris an annulement, and has another man's baby while married, then she is being very, very selfish.
Put the baby ahead of your own pride!

TMZ has blatantly put themselves right in the Kardashian corner. Do the writer's for this article know something we readers don't? It's anyones' guess how this dissolution will be resolved. I'm sticking w/ the naive mid-western boy, and BTW, stop publishing such unflattering photo's of Kris, he's a good looking guy.

What's amazing here is that Kim offered Kris $10 million to settle the divorce and he turned it down. Kris will probably lose in court because he has no evidence to support his claims so he basically turned down $10 million for nothing.

I don't care - the Kartrashians deserve every ounce of bad karma they get for being the vapid hoars that they are. Whatever Kris does to delay the inevitable is okay. Make Kim waddle around pregnant while married to someone else as long as possible - it's hilarious.
