Kris Humphries

I Chose Basketball

Over Kim's Depo

3/22/2013 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0321_kris_humphries_getty2_article
Kris Humphries is true to the adage, Hoops before Hoes ... and that's precisely why he was a no-show at Kim Kardashian's deposition.

You'll recall ... Kris' lawyer, Lee Hutton, talked about Kris' constitutional right to look Kim in the eyes as she testified under oath about their short-lived marriage.

So why, you ask, did Kris miss that golden opportunity? Sources close to the BBaller tell TMZ ... Kris had practice and travel obligations Tuesday, as Kim sat for her marathon, 9-hour depo. He had just finished a game Monday night in Michigan, had practice Tuesday and was traveling later that day to Dallas for a Wednesday game.

We're told Kris is adamant about one thing -- attending the May 6 trial, even if it conflicts with the playoffs. So hoes don't always come in second.

Kris didn't need to show.... shows he has confidence in his case as well as his lawyers. Kim and disso queen would have pulled something anyway.

What is the big deal......he will have his time in court and will be able to respond to all of the lies that she has said. I am sure that she will bring her crystick with her has it will look good ....a pregnant woman crying. These Kartrash are an abomination and represent America in a very bad way. MB

For Sooth?    

No doubt Momager/Kim phoned this one in as well. Kim refused to say what media outlet she calls into daily. My guess is that on May 6 we will hear the letters TMZ. This is just them getting out ahead of the impending problem. But it won't wash, too little too late TMZinged.

Harvey, it's way to late for you to put out a story in Hump's favor and try to make it sound like you are dissing KimmyKakes. If you don't think attorney Hutton has copies of all the previous stories on this site already of your disgusting spin on things to make Humphries look really bad, think again. I had a feeling yesterday when ROL posted about a direct line the karstoogians had to a GOSSIP WEBSITE you were going to be quaking in your shoes. I can't wait to see how nice you plan on playing from now until May 6th. I have a sneaking suspicion Kris H has another attorney in the wings to slap TMZ with a lawsuit for all the garbage you've printed about him and it will be filed after May 6. You lay with a dog, you end up with fleas and dog shyte all over the place.

Why do everyone keep saying she has no talent??? She is obviously a model and she runs her own business, how is that not talent? She's probably doing more than what some of y'all are doing. No, she's not perfect, but who is? Her business is put in the spot light for everyone to see, how about the ones who are hating put their business out there so we can judge you. If you don't like the girl, you shouldn't be reading this article.

Mom Kardasian should be so proud of raising professional prostitutes,or tramps, and of course she sounds like she was one herself and is raising them as she lead her life. Worthless family, they need to fall off a cliff and never to be found

Simple. They were wrong for each other. Kris H wants a woman he can totally control. Kim wants a man she and her mother could totally control. I wish them both the best.

Here's my opinion... If I was his lawyer, I'm not saying he's a bad guy, but she's Soooooo annoying... Anyway... could it be he wanted to it said that he wanted her to know that he was going to be there for the deposition just so she can be prepared not to lie about everything that she has been lying about in the past? The trial will blow up in her face! Case in point, The Hills, or any other alleged "reality t.v. show" on! I'm on Kris' side just for this point!
