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 ... ?

Kris Humphries never speaks to the press, why make up such a ridiculous headline, TMZ? Milking this saga for all it's worth.

No way he'll win this trial? Then it probably wouldn't go to trial anyway. Saying things like that could actually get you sued.

TMZ you are right on. Kris is so immature and seems pretty dumb. His atty stayed with him longer than Kim did but in the end couldn't stay with him either. He should settle and try to find someone else.

Until this tramp gets off the boob tube and out off the mind of folks, we will continue to be dumb downed as a society. The devils influence is in the K's.

Another non-story created for the sole intention of bashing Kris Humphries – and trying to make Kim look like the victim!


Nice try, Harvey … except you probably forgot what you said on TMZ live Friday. Besides calling Kris Humphries ‘dumb’ and ‘stupid’, you said Kris will not be granted another extension and he has no choice but to show up to court on May 6 – playoffs or not. You said he will simply have to miss ‘work’ just like everyone else.


Please stop making Kris H. out to be a ‘stupid’, horrible, vindictive monster. TMZ ran a story which said the reason Kris wanted the annulment was because he doesn’t believe in divorce, and he did not feel that his 72 marriage was a ‘real marriage’. Can you blame him for wanting to wipe the slate clean?


If he wants to call out the Kardashians on their ‘reality shows’, then let him! He was obviously portrayed in a negative way, and we all know Kim and Kris Jenner have the final say on what makes it to air. It seems rather obvious the show was edited to portray Kris as the bad guy, when Kim is the one who gave up on the marriage so quickly and filed for divorce. The guy was bashed on the show and in the press – can you blame him for wanting to clear his name?

Let them figure things out with the legal system. It's not my place to speculate. Not my place to 'judge'.

Why doesn't kim do her deposition ? Her fans say she did but she has not. Only Kris H, Kris K and stupid Kanye have done it. The court says this trial may last 3-5 days, not 2-3 as TMZ is saying here. Kris H has 90 days left to prepare, lets hope he can get it together to sink this evil family.

Ok…the two got married strictly for the show's ratings. After the wedding show, they separated. He had to know about this and was paid. She definitely knew about it.

The problem is neither slut Kim or the show's producers are going to admit the whole thing was a publicity ploy, and Kris is never going to admit he knew it was a ploy all along.

So it is going to be up to a jury to decide who is the worst sleaze.

Nice
