As the divorce-annulment drama between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries heats up, Kris continues to fire back at his wife of 72-days!
A day after filing for annulment on the grounds of fraud, TMZ is now reporting Kris feels he was nothing but a pawn, simply used by Kim for her E! reality show.
Sources tell TMZ Kris feels “he was just slotted in the plot line of Kim Kardashian‘s latest headline and newest business venture.”
TMZ adds that Kris, 26, now believes Kim, 31, never intended to stay married to him and only needed a groom to boost ratings for her show — Kourtney and Kim Take New York. One source states: “Once they were finished taping, she just didn’t need a groom anymore.” Indeed, Kim filed for divorce not during taping of the show but immediately after filming ended.
Kris is reportedly outraged that some of the public believes he was in on the wedding scam. A friend of Kris states, “He would have never flown in his childhood pastor to marry them and involve his church.”
Kris also feels Kim’s own statement (the one she posted on her blog the day she filed for divorce) proves his point. Back on Oct. 31, Kim wrote: “I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up in the hoopla and the filming of the TV show.”
And just moments ago, Kim fired back once again at Kris also via TMZ. Kim, err “sources” close to Kim rather tell TMZ Kris’s claims can’t be true because “she and her mom are marketing geniuses, so why would she set herself up to be skewered in the media by dumping her husband after only 72 days?” Folks we can’t make these things up, but my answer to Kimmie is that she and her mother foolishly underestimated the backlash they would receive.
Kim is also telling friends that Kris’ latest move is “pathetic,” adding, “Why fight over any of this?”
Perhaps a reason for Kris’ sudden urge to fight back is this week’s cover of Star magazine and other numerous negative stories the Kardashian camp continues to plant about him in the press… in hopes of making him a villain and Kim a victim.
On this week’s Star cover (posted below), sources close to Kim claim the marriage fell apart because Kris is gay and apparently refused to touch her after their honeymoon. Yes they went there. Even better, this comes just weeks after the same sources were claiming Kris cheated on Kim with other women. A rep for Kris, however, denies the tabloid rumor telling the NY Post that Star Magazine’s story is “completely false and ridiculous. He is not gay.”
It appears the Kardashians continue to remain desperate to paint Kim as a victim as pretty much all of their previous attempts have failed. This includes the premiere episode of KKTNY which actually backfired as it showed Kris as being in love with his wife, while Kim was rather short with him.
In fact, Kim’s actions on that episode is also causing some new drama. See in one of the scenes, Kris ends up ruining Kim’s pedicure while roughhousing with her and a very annoyed Kim punches him in retaliation. Dr. Drew Pinsky who saw the footage stated that he considered Kim’s actions to be domestic abuse. Wowzers.
“What you are seeing there is domestic violence,” said Dr. Drew as he played the clip for his “Lifechangers” audience to see. “A lot of people watching this may not understand this, and I get that. It looks playful. What’s the big deal? It is a massive deal and it’s important.”
Dr. Drew added that his main concern was the message Kim’s actions are sending to viewers. “It’s important for everyone else,” he said. “For Kris and Kim, they’re separating. That’s over with. This doesn’t need to be reported or anything, but anybody listening at home and viewing this has to understand the spectrum of domestic violence, and this is incontrovertible evidence of someone engaged in a domestic violence relationship.”
He also added that Kim’s actions shouldn’t be excused due to her small size compared to NBA player Kris. “It’s illegal, and it goes to a bad place,” he stressed. “It progresses. It starts and goes — it doesn’t stay right there. The size, gender does not matter. It goes to a horrible, horrible place.”
Interesting. Did Kim cross the line with her punch? We’ll let you be the judge. The clip of the punch is below.
