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 ... ?

Bench-rider, soon-to-be-traded Humphries isn't even needed during the playoffs.

Oh come on TMZ, if Kris really had no chance of winning then no lawyer would've taken his case, it wouldn't still be ongoing, Kim's side would turn over the show footage, the majority of comments would be negative toward him, and so on. The real question is why Kim says she hasn't had time to give her deposition but she has plenty of time to travel the world. She's blaming Kris for stressing her out and putting her baby at risk but she finds it perfectly fine to fly and prance around in high heels? BS

Let me break it down for you TMZ:

Bench players like KRis Humphries don't have the power to put an the NBA championship at "risk."
LOL.


Kris is only depriving himself -- not the team. The team can get along just fine without him. The starting lineup doens't include him and the bench will be fine without him. HOwever, Kris himself has never ever been on a team that made it to the playoffs. So, he's taking away his chance to play in the post-season. That's how self-sabotaging he is. Good. Let him be a dunce.

Do the kardashians own TMZ? Harvey have something going on with Kris Jenner? Because you are so biased in every article.

TMZ, I HOPE YOUR ASS GETS SUED BY KH FOR SLANDER & DEFAMATION!!! YOU ARE PURE S***!!!

Kris wants the annulment not for spite, but because he was scammed as a publicity stunt by KK, and he can never have a Catholic wedding again unless he gets it annulled.

I don't think there is a Judge out there stupid enough to grant this media whoring sub rate porn star a divorce. Kris definitely deserves the annulment. I only saw bits of the show and media concerning this debacle but if anyone saw even half of what I did we all know she is a trashy money sucking fraud. However, this does not exempt Kris from being a Retard!

In spite of TMZ's constant assertion that he isn't entitled to any money, I'm sure he is entitled to the money that was made off the wedding and those wedding gifts she never returned.

Absolutely agree with #4 Callie.....I am sure Mike Walters wrote this story as the pipeline to TMZ from Kris Jenner is straight through to Walters.

TMZ: These Kardashian "supportive promotion stories " will not work to your benefit at the end. 1: Support to either party make you look bias. Obviously your support goes to Kim Kardashian. 2. TMZ was held in very high regard my many readers when it came to reporting the truth. Your oneside support for the Kardashians will take this image away forever. ? Whether we support Kim K or not. This is a major story as for as TMZ market. It definitely draws viewers - new and old - but you should want your viewers to leave reading all your articles with an opinion about the story - not you. I don't support Kim Kardashian. I do believe that she should give Kris an annulment, his ring and now some Cash. This is slander; similiar to the National Enquirer time slander. I am so disappointed TMZ It is sad, but I guess the Kardashians will use anyone or anything to get what they want.

Hopefully the judge will see through this B's antics and make her pay for her careless judgement. You can't buy everything, but you always have to pay....
