The NBA star has been warned that because of their prenup agreement and the expertise of his estranged wife and reality TV star Kim Kardashan’s legal team, it is futile to oppose the divorce and fight for an annulment.
But, if he is up for it, there may be a way he could grab millions from Kim.
Sources are reporting that both Kim and Kris know that their prenuptial agreement was water-tight. And if Kris gets his way and has the marriage annulled based on fraud, that would mean there was never a marriage and as a result he would have absolutely no claim to any of Kim’s earnings during their 72 days of bliss because no marriage would have existed.
So is there anything Kris Humphries can do to stay in the money? It seems that there is, but he may not be up for it and even then it is not easy to prove a successful claim.
Kris would have to file a claim against Kim for intentional infliction of emotional distress based on fraud. If he could prove Kim used him as a disposable groom for her reality TV show as he claims is the case, he could get substantial financial damages.
Further, if Kris does badly during the lockout shortened basketball season and gets cut from the Nets, which is a possibility, he could blame his poor performance on the distractions caused by his short and ill-fated marriage and fallout. As Kris pulls in $3.2 million a year he could be claiming an awful lot of money back from Kim Kardashian.
It is obvious that Kris Humphries is upset, hurt and even maybe humiliated by his treatment by his soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian. But it’s another question entirely of whether Kris would be willing to sue the ass off her in a civil court. That’s in addition to his doubtful chances of convincing a court he is entitled to substantial financial damages, when presumably, he should have had a good idea of what he was in for, marrying the reality TV star.
