Kris Humphries' Family

Kim K Should Admit ...

Marriage Was a 'Sham'

Kris Humphries
' relatives have a major bone to pick with Kim Kardashian ... claiming Kim K's 72-day-marriage to the NBA star was nothing but a "sham" and it's about damn time she fess up to it.

Kris' aunt Dedria -- who attended K & K's wedding back in 2011 -- is adamant Kim duped her nephew into tying the knot as a ploy to boost ratings for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," telling The UK Sun, "[The wedding] was a sham."

Not only that, Dedria says Kim needs to own up to her fraud so Kris can get the annulment he desires, explaining, "An annulment says it wasn’t valid in the first place. She should admit that it was a sham at the very least.”

As TMZ previously reported, Kim wants a simple divorce, but Kris is hell-bent on fighting for an annulment ... claiming he was defrauded, which could render any pre-nup illegitimate and free the NBA'er from his confidentiality clause.

That said, Kris' Uncle Mike believes his nephew's legal battle is motivated by revenge, telling the paper, "I believe he wants payback."

A trial is set to begin May 6.

Kris Humphries needs to get a life and move on. Did you people watch his behavior on the show?! I was shocked and I applaud Kim for not prolonging a relationship that clearly was a huge mistake on her part. He used her as much as you seem to think she used him. His 15 minutes of fame have been over for some time. Let's see what he can accomplish now without her.

What did Kris do to try to make the marriage work? Demand that she move to MN? Push her around? Walk out when he didn't get his way?

Kris's mama is backing him on this. He's not the type to make decisions for himself. She's still fuming that she couldn't parlay her son's dumb luck into fortune and fame for herself. Now she's got her sister crying to the press. She's so jealous of Kim and her fame and money. She didn't approve of her on the show so she should be overjoyed about the outcome.

The bottom line is the shame the child will endure....will be exposed to.
Children's lives are nothing to play with, I don'tknow her well enough .....and don't want to know her....the only victim in all of this is the child.
Have any one even heard the word "baby"come out of

This is the same family that just got their own reality show"Keeping up with the Humphries". The thank you note isn't even Kim's signature(falsifying a signature is not legal). His family is admitting that they want prenup gone so he can get money. This all reeks of desperation because Kris is going to be traded and is not getting the same money he once did. His annulment was and will always be about the money.

Obviously that marriage was a fraud, plain & simple. Kris should be given an annulment & Kim should pay for his legal expenses.

72 Days does not make a marriage, or a case for a Divorce....But it does give grounds for a Legal Annulment.
