The gloves are off in the Kim Kardashian Kris Humphries divorce. We told you yesterday that Kris countered Kim’s divorce proceedings with an application to have the marriage annulled. Now he is going after the prenup he signed with estranged wife Kim Kardashian too, as he doesn’t want to be barred from speaking out about their time together.
If Kris gets an annulment, then under California law the couple were never legally married, so the prenup agreement would be worthless.
There is a strict confidentiality clause in the prenup that prohibits both Kim and Kris from discussing intimate details of the relationship to the media. Kris wants out of that.
So, he is alleging that the wedding was a fraud aimed at increasing viewing figures for their reality TV program, and wants an annulment.
It’s a masterful stroke which is the only way for him not to be bound by the restrictive prenup agreement. Kris wants to be able to talk about his marriage to Kim Kardashian without having to be worried about being sued. Presumably, he has his eye on some lucrative deals to talk about his relationship.
If he can get an annulment, the prenup will most likely be tossed out too, as the couple will never have been legally married so it would not have come into force. And Kris Humphries will be free to talk to whoever her wants to about his marriage. That should make him a lot of money.
