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 ... ?

Are the kashdashians paying TMZ to write these articles slandering Kris? I think Kris is a moron but he has every right to drag this out. Kim is a total narcissis. She knew she didnt love him but she weng ahead and married him while she and pimp mama made money off of the wedding. So if kris wants to drag it out then so be it.

I hope the hearing falls right on the day of a playoff game. Double whammy fail. After the Nets lose and he gets his ass burned at the trial, he can go back to his man cave in MN where he belongs, and have his mamma bake him some cookies.

I have never seen such bias on any gossip site. I think the real reason Harvey opposes the annulment is because he’s scared Kris H. will have something to say about TMZ being paid to constantly advertise this non-talented family.

Wow TMZ,, you sound so one sided here. Kissing Kim's ass too? kris is right, she did use him and why shouldn't he get something for what she's done to him and continues to make him look like a fool? She cares about no one but herself. She isn't even classy enough to wait to get divorced before going public with this idiot boytoy and now unborn child... I hope the judge makes an example out of her.

Everyone seems to forget that Kris was paid a lot of $ for bein part of the show. I think that is what he is pissed about. Not getting any more air time since he doesn't get much playing ball.

Would just LOVE to see Kim Kard. in court 6 months pregnant with another man, trying to get a divorce from her ex. Such a classy girl.

kim and family humilitated kris buy using him for the kardashian 'brand.' everyone knows the marriage was just a staged event for the tv show. the people who gave them pricey gifts should also sue her if they did not get their gifts back. i say best wishes and hope you win in court and get the annullment you deserves,kris.

Sheesh. The TMZ "newsroom" must now be stationed in Kim Kardashian's disgustingly fat ass. Just three blocks north of the big loose grand canyon in Tuna Town and around the corner, right next to the dump. Harvey's gonna have to change the name if the place to DPZ, "Dirty Pile Zone".

I Don't blame Kris -- he's redeeming himself by proving to the world what a complete fraud Kim K Superstar is.

Kris Humphries should get a Nobel Peace Prize!

Or He can always appeal the divorce and drag it out even longer, Kim would not get her divorce by the time of the baby, 2. she could be so"stressed" and actually goes into bed rest and can't make the trial. Everyone sees it as fraud, why doesn't Harvey?
