When Kim Kardashian decided to file for divorce from Kris Humphries after a mere 72-days of marriage, I’m sure she never, ever, anticipated the fallout. It’s pretty much nuclear at this point for the 31-year-old reality star, as almost every aspect of her life has come plummeting down around her. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), things are potentially about to get much worse for Kim!
But first reports are circulating that the desperate for love and attention Kim is shacking up with NY Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez. Is there a professional athlete Kim hasn’t boinked?! No wonder Tebow rejected her!
According to the blog TerezOwens, a source reports that Kim was “secretly” dating the NFL player while she was in NYC filming the first season of KKTNY and now that she is done with old Hump things are once again hot and heavy – still in secret, of course – since Mark has a real girlfriend (reportedly model Kate Upton)! “Kim and Mark like to meet in hotels for dinner dates and flings”, a source reports. “Whenever Kim is in New York, they hang out. They are very careful with not being seen together, Mark is seeing someone!”
So are the two serious? “Kim’s just in it for the sex”, says an insider close to Kimmie. “She has her hopes set on a bigger ‘star’ than Sanchez. But for now, he will do.”
Kim is, however, denying any sort of relationship with Mark. Taking to Twitter, Kim claims the rumor is complete BS. “Dating rumors are always fun when u don’t even know the people your supposedly linked to! Who makes this stuff up!”, she wrote. And just in case you’ve forgotten, Kimmie Kakes denied she had a sex tape just weeks before it was “leaked.”
Moving on to Kimmie’s drama with Kris. If you recall, shortly after Kim filed for divorce, Kris retaliated by seeking an annulment claiming “fraud.” Because Kris filed for the annulment, Kim is now legally unable to end her marriage until a judge rules whether or not there is “clear and convincing evidence” that fraud occurred!
Currently there are no divorce talks taking place according to a Humphries family insider, since neither party wants to compromise or withdraw their petition. If Kimmie isn’t careful she could be headed for a very, very public divorce – like televised public. Oooohhhh… some real reality TV from the Kardashians for a change!
Family attorney Vikki Zeigler tells HollywoodLife exclusively that if Kim doesn’t start negotiating with Kris, she will likely find herself in court early this summer. Which would necessitate the many Kardashian family members (and Scott Disick) to testify! Since California has an “open policy on popular court cases,” television cameras will be allowed in the courthouse to capture every minute of Kim attempting to convince a jury that she went into her marriage with the purest of intentions.
Kim’s attorney, the famed Laura Wasser, is attempting to move the marriage dissolution to mediation instead, but Kris is resisting!
Kris believes he has evidence that proves fraud took place and is adamant he thought their marriage was real! According to an insider Kris is certain “Kim had no intention to stay married to him and she just got married to make money. He and his team wouldn’t go forward if they didn’t believe that they could prove this [in court.]”
“Kim was filming scenes saying that she was dissatisfied with her marriage during the week of Sept. 8, which was barely three weeks after the wedding,” says the source. “His team believes that the season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York was developed with the theme of divorce, without Kris being made aware of it.”
Claiming he never knew Kim was feeling unhappy in their relationship, Kris says “he was never in the scenes where they discuss Kim’s unhappiness and he never caught Kim talking to her sisters about being unhappy.” On last week’s season finale Kris was seen searching for Kim while she sat in her dressing room furtively sobbing to her sister. Kris seemed completely in the dark about Kim’s feelings.
“When the pair wasn’t filming, Kim was normal and affectionate to Kris”, the source explains. Additionally, it seems E! edited a scene of Kris to make it look like he was the one talking about divorce.
Kris’ motivation for an open trial is his desire for the public to see the truth about Kim and her dishonest behavior! “Kris wants the world to know how badly he was duped into this sham of a marriage”, a source tells Reality Weekly.
He believes he was fooled from the get-go and cast unwittingly to play a role as the groom to garner Kim attention and a huge payout! “Kris feels he was set up by the Kardashians. He wants to be able to tell his side”, says the insider. “When he married Kim, he thought it was forever, but he realized Kim wasn’t in love with him and now believes he was merely a prop.” Remember, Kim allegedly made an estimated $17M in endorsements, TV specials, photos, and product placements all due to her nuptials. No one knows how much of that money went to Kris, as it was reported he was only eligible for a “limited cut of the wedding money,” per their prenup.
And for all of those who think Kris is stupid, he insists he was well aware of what he was marrying into! “Kris understood that he was committing himself to the Kardashian way of life,” and was not surprised that he would be asked to participate in scripted scenes to further the plot of their shows.
Once Kim filed for divorce, “Kris knew he was going to look like the bad guy on Kourtney and Kim Take New York, but it’s so blatant and over-the-top, it’s just cruel “, says the source.
Vikki Zeigler believes scenes from Kim’s various reality shows could be admissible in court to help prove she had no intention of staying married to Kris! Citing the scene where the couple is discussing where they will live post-filming and Kim basically tries to convince Kris not to move in with her, Vikki believes, “It shows that she never had any intent of doing what a wife is supposed to do — live with her husband.”
And Kris may have another reason for wanting the trial to go public! Allegedly the prenup the couple signed bars Kris from publicly discussing the details of their marriage, including monies earned from the event, “But if a judge grants the divorce on the grounds of fraud,” a source explains, “the prenup is void.” Tell-all time!
So why is Kim willing to risk a public trial over agreeing to an annulment? Her already eviscerated reputation! If Kim admits her marriage was a fraud, she might be liable to pay back some of those vendors who offered services and products for her wedding. Potentially she could face civil suits from others who feel they were duped by Kim’s money grubbing, attention whoring ways!
Whether or not fraud was committed isn’t the only issue the former couple is facing-off over. Kris wants to know just what happened to all those wedding gifts and he believes legally he has a say in what happens to them! Kris wanted her to return all the gifts to their original senders. Kim instead decided to donate the estimated $200,000 the gifts were worth to the Dream Foundation, a charity she supports. Shortly after this promise, reports emerged that Kim had actually exchanged many of those exorbitantly priced gifts for Rolex watches!
Well Kris is still furious that greedykins-Kimmie still won’t return any of the remaining presents – even the very, very pricey ones! “One of the super expensive wedding gifts they received was a Ferrari and he thinks it, like all the other gifts should be returned to its sender,” a source close to Kris reveals. Kris claims he had no control over the gifts because he wasn’t involved in the decision of what to do with them post-wedding – believing his marriage was forever he wasn’t concerned!
“Kris has never seen any of his gifts. He doesn’t have a list of any of the gifts. He feels the gifts are communal property in the marriage and therefore, they should have been at least divided 50/50,” a source tells HollywoodLife. And because Kim isn’t communicating with her ex, he has been learning about her sketchy behaviors through the media and is appalled that she would exchange presents from his family and friends for personal items instead of returning them!
Even worse for Kim, apparently divorce court isn’t the only court Kris is hoping to visit with Kim! Sources are reporting he is looking to file a civil case (aka lawsuit!) against Kimmie for misleading him about her affections. ”Kris thought he was getting married for life and he found out he was getting a divorce on a radio show,” a source contends.
