Kris Humphries dad is coming to the defense of his son after his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian. William Humphries tells Life & Style,“There was never a discussion about it — it just came out of nowhere and blindsided Kris. How could someone do that? Kris was completely surprised. The news was already published before he found out!”
While Kardashian has spoken publicity about her divorce in an Australian television interview and in a blog post, she is not happy Kris is voicing his opinion, “Kris told me that Kim was texting him a lot, but he wouldn’t respond. They did speak briefly the day the split was announced — but only because Kim was apparently pissed that Kris had released his own statement.”
Over the weekend Kardashian flew to Minneapolis to meet with her estranged husband, “It’s not a nice situation. No matter how you look at it, he’s going through a divorce,” William said.
According to the New York Post,Kardashian has apologised to the Humphries family for the “media attention and hurt this has caused them,” as also “not calling them to explain before she filed for divorce.” As irony would have it, Kardashianis now working on her first major movie titled Marriage Counselor.
It’s been 72-days and Kim Kardashian has already filed for divorce from Kris Humphries. But was Humphries Kim K’s first choice for a husband? Wetpaint.com is reporting the Kardashian camp originally approached New York Knicks Danilo Gallinari to date the reality star.
According to the site: “They asked if he would be interested in dating her and being on a reality show,” a source said. “Danilo said he would love to meet Kim but was not interested in dating her or being on a reality show, even though E! explained it would be great for his career, Gallinari turned the offer down.”
As Thejerseychaser posted back in December, Gallinari was linked to Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg. Despite being a “reality” show, Kim needed a storyline for the first season of “Kim and Kourtney Take New York” and wanted to date a New York athlete.
While Gallinari may have been approached, Kardashian and Humphries say they met after Kim spotted Kris at a Nets game and had a mutual friend introduce each other. Humphries Nets teammate Jordan Farmar told US Weekly he introduced the two: “I introduced them in New York and they have come a long way since. They both fit each other. He is a good kid. He is from the country … So he kind of slows it down, and she is fast paced and has a lot of stuff going on, so they kind of balance each other out.”
For as famous as Kardashian is, she sure has a thing for mediocre athletes.
Perez Hilton is reporting marriage problems for Kim Kardashian and Kris Humprhies. Despite making $65 million in 2010, Humphries apparently has problems with his wife’s spending habits.
“One of the biggest issues for Kris is Kim’s preoccupation with money. He has started to pay attention to how much she spends, and it’s been a major shock. He tried to talk to her about slowing down, but she told him it was none of his business.”
The report comes out the same day Kim’s Fairy Tale Wedding special debuts on E! The previews of the two night-four hour special highlights the family drama leading up to the wedding. Problems or no problems, Kardashian told Ryan Seacrest this morning that she hopes to have kids a year from now.
Humphries made $3 million last season with the New Jersey Nets but is now a free agent. His future remains uncertain during the NBA lockout, while the couple are filming Kim and Kourtney Take New York. Looks like Kris a reality star chaser!
Before Kim Kardashian made $18 million on her wedding, she made a sex tape with R&B singer Ray J that was leaked to the public. Coincidentally, Kris Humphries was seated next to Ray Jay on a cross country flight no less than two-weeks after he married Kardashian.
On the Delta flight from LA to New Orleans, Humprhies sat across the aisle from Brandy’s younger brother who broke the awkward silence. According to the New York Post, Ray J said: “Come on, you know who I am. I just want to say congratulations.”
While many credit the tape as being the rise to Kardashian’s fame, a secret buyer has come forward offering Vivid Entertainment to buy the rights to the film and to take it off the market. Despite the $30 million price tag, I am sure it is a less complicated take off than Humphries and Ray J’s exchange, and we doubt they shared peanuts!
