Kris Humphries wants to annul marriage to Kim

Kim Kardashian may have asked for a divorce, but her estranged husband Kris Humphries wants something a little different.

The NBA player is seeking a legal separation, his rep tells CNN, and does not plan to go through with signing the divorce papers Kim filed on October 31. That way, the couple's 72-day marriage could then be annulled.

Update, 4:30 p.m.: Kris Humphries' rep tells CNN that he has filed to legally separate from and nullify his marriage to Kim Kardashian. (And, by the way: Any reports you see about him being gay aren't true, the rep says.)

According to People magazine, this is a new plan for Kris. Sources close to the basketball player had previously claimed that he wanted to sign off on the divorce and move forward.

    Gr8 fgiure but still don't know who the heck she is. That must mean she's another one famous for having no skills, no talent, no nothing.'- LI, London, 08/2/2011 12:48Rubbish. She has a massive talent for making huge amounts of money. That's what we all go to school in the hope of achieving. If you have it as a natural, God-given talent, you are truly blessed. If you can make money out of nothing,' you are even more so. And unless you personally have an equivalent fortune to the one she has stashed away, I can't see how you are in a position to pontificate on her skills or talent, or the lack thereof.

    He should annul it. They are making him look like the jerk on the show, and She knew going in she didn't want to marry him but did it anyway. THATS FRAUD

    I feel sorry for Kris's immediate family, i believe his mom and dad live in Minnesota. What must they thing when all this trash is on every front page of the tabloids. What little I read about them I am sure that they could not begin to compete on same level as the TRASH/KARDAH. It must not be easy for them either. When you marry off your children you want only happiness for them.

    Frankly speaking, I don't know why we are so bothered about a bunch of self-serving, uncharitable, narcissists who will do anything for fame and money. I pity Kris for falling for this white-washed, cosmetically enhanced brat. If he wins the case, all good and great but if he doesn't, may Heaven have mercy on Kim cos u know, what goes around, comes around...

      Are you kidding?! It's ridiculously easy! They both got paid big money to star in a made-for-tv sham "marriage". Everything is turning out exactly as they planned it. Note how there's a different headline about this story every week?...just like they drew it up. Designed for maximum media exposure.

    I firmly believe that Kris was blindsided by this whole sham. I firmly believe he married for love. I firmly believe he truly loved her but didn't get to see her true colors until after they were married. According to reports, he wanted to work it out. Which is a sign that he wanted to compromise, which is what marriage is all about. Kim, on the other hand, doesn't know the meaning of compromise. I feel sorry for Kris. I'm not saying he's completely innocent in the fall of this "marriage", if you can call it that. But, I think that she used him for PR, married him for PR and in turn divorced him for PR. I certainly hope he can move past this and focus on what's really important in his life.

    This topic is moldy old. So you do or do not like or dislike. Personally, I would like to hear more about the starving children in America and how that compares to what Ex Mrs H. made in cash on the whole shin dig. Sheisters come and go but hunger seems to loom. Maybe she will donate to a worthy cause outside of herself. As for me, I will never take anything anyone attached to Hollywood or the media says. They are worth their weight in gold as actors.

      I happen to like watching the show, as do millions of other people, so why so much hate and anger? I for one think their marriage was not a sham, even if over the top for tv, so let them both just go through the separation without assuming you know what the truth is. Why do you care so much, if you don't watch and you hate them anyway?

    It might be he's playing something smart with the anullment. It may go back to the prenup. Obviously with an anullment, He doesn't get a bunch more money from her but it prevents Kim K from cashing in on his wealth. He's got a bunch of money rolling in from endorsements and his NBA career might take off. If there isn't anything in the prenup specifically about his future earnings not being accessible to her in the event of divorce, the 72 day marriage may be something that's pretty costly to him. I wouldn't put it past the Kardashians and their lawyers doings omethingw here Kris K. ends up having to give up half his NBA salary to Kim K and pretty much half of every endorsement deal he's done between the time he said 'I do.' and the time he signed the divorce papers. An anullment prevents the Kardashians from doing this.

    Interesting move on his part, it's like he "one-upped" her. She files for divorce, he says screw that, the marriage never existed.... I did see a preview for the new show and it did appear in those few seconds the honeymoon was looong over.
