Still legally-married because MONIES, here’s an interim update on the divorce of Kim Kardashian from Kris Humphries to balance some of the annoying smearing that’s been going on. Pro-Kardashian mouthpieces like Us Weekly, who went on the couple’s honeymoon to take photos and got the exclusive for Kourtney’s preggo reveal, are claiming Kardashian’s life is ‘hell’ during this divorce. Probably because she’s somewhat limited in the ways she can play it for money/ publicity/ attention. And most pro-Kardashian outlets have been smearing Humphries since the previews of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, claiming that Humphries is a slow opportunist which is mean because they’re only half right.
Humphries makes $8 million a year in the NBA but her pimps at E! and mouthpieces like TMZ claim Humphries is basically playing hardball and trying to extort money by waiting his estranged wife out until she’s desperate enough to pay the reported $7 million settlement that supposedly includes a gag-clause. He had his lawyer talk to Lies&Style. And now, it seems, more-sympathetic RadarOnline.com is countering the smearing with a story about how Humphries is probably done with any negotiaiton because it wouldn’t be worth ruining his name in the tabloids: ‘Kris is furious about reports that he is making Kim’s life hell…. he won’t be bullied by her anymore. Kris has told his lawyer to no longer attempt to reach a settlement with Kim… he is ready to take this to trial, and he will. A judge can decide if the marriage should be annulled on grounds of fraud. Kris’ name has been trashed in the press by Kim’s camp… and he has the right to fight back, but he isn’t doing it the way she is. He will have his day in court.’
