According to the latest issue of Life & Style magazine, NBA player Kris Humphries is suing his soon-to-be ex-wife, Kim Kardashian — for a whopping ten million dollars.
We’ve told you earlier how the Kardashian machine is going after Kris, saying that he used to call Kim “fat”. Now apparently, he has launched a lawsuit against her.
An insider said, “Kris has a legal team investigating his options. He’s claiming his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told, and that’s why he wants more money. But Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.”
We’ve heard that he’s worried about the footage of him bullying Kim’s friend Jonathan Cheban. The source went on to reveal, “Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality. Jonathan isn’t gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset.”
Life & Style reports:
As is Kim. “Kris used the word ‘gay’ as an insult, to try and hurt Jonathan,” an E! insider tells Life & Style. “He’s the lowest of the low bullying someone like this.”
While it’s too late for him to stop the premiere from airing, Kris has retained lawyer Lee Hutton III and is trying his hardest to prevent the most inflammatory moments from being broadcast. Kris, his family and his friends maintain that much of Kris’ appearance on Kourtney & Kim was scripted — including scenes in which he ponders Jonathan’s sexuality — and that he’s not homophobic.
“Little did Kris know that he was being set up,” his father, William Humphries, tells Life & Style exclusively. “Kris got used —100 percent used.”
What do you think of the whole situation? Do you think Kris was portrayed unfairly? Or is it some handy scripting that was geared to make him look bad? Kim does have creative control over the show and it’s already been said that she wouldn’t let anything air that would put her in a bad light.
