Kris Humphries claims fraud in legal separation docs

As TMZ reported earlier this week, it seems Kris Humphries may be feeling duped.

In court documents received by CNN, the pro basketball player filed for legal separation from Kim Kardashian on December 1, citing irreconcilable differences. He's also seeking to nullify his marriage to the 31-year-old reality star, in that instance citing fraud.

According to TMZ, it's rumored that Kim has disclosed to friends that she didn't deceive Kris and married for love.

Attorney Debra Opri tells "Showbiz Tonight" that Kris' response to seek an annulment, "makes a big difference, because if there's no marriage and no divorce, there's no spousal support." But, Opri continues, "to prove fraud, even in an annulment, is  a very difficult burden of proof."

    It's highly unlikely that a judge would require Humphries to pay anything to KK. KK likely has a higher income than Humphries. And their marriage only lasted two months.

    Omg I really used to like them ladies, I really liked Kym, I found myself defending her. I do not know her personally, it was the point that they were great business women, their mom taught them well, and they were young ladies that grew up in the spot light.

    I suggest you get a very good lawyer-Kris. Break the prenup, there is always a way. Then sue the entire K famiy, especially that annoying meddling mother. -Art

    The mother is a poor example of a mother. She's all about the money and wll have her daughters almost anything to get. And yes she' s Kim's pimp. As long as Kris Jenner gets her 10 percent. she's happy The vile language of the mother and the daughters and references to body parts in the presence of anymore shows absolutely no self respect or respect for anyone else. They are all brats including Kris Jenner. Hope Kim is managing her money well because her NOW will not last forever, AND...she has no talent for ANYthing

    She thinks if she keeps saying she loved him that we are going to somehow start to believe her. Actions speak louder than words Kimmy. Your marriage was a sham.

      boocat You put it the best, next year, let's not hear anything that has anything to do with these self grandizing, self centered drama queens whom are so immature and self centered that I cannot imagine any parent wanting their daughters to even begin to watch their behavoirs, this is just so disgusting, and as for the mother, unbelievalbe that she cannot see what monsters she has raised in this world.. I hope the whole world forgets them for next year.I cannot stand to see the name let alone hear it

    Kris did ask Kim to marry him. He just came across as pompous and immature, and of course Kim is all for publicity any way, shape or form and not to mention she's an ass (no pun intended).

    Spousal support? what?? which one of them would even be eligible for alimony? In my experience, support amounts are based on the length of marriage and the factors of lifestyle that were shared during that marriage. I don't think the court could even calculate those numbers based on 72 days....?

    Wait a minute. How could this be fraud. He asked her to marry. Anyone watching the show can tell it was not going to work.

      He only asked her to marry him because it was written that way in the script. lol

    Why feel sorry for him? And dont tell me he didnt know what he was getting into. Unless he was living on Jupiter he cant have missed any of that spectacle beforehand. Nah, not feeling it. Man up Kris and move on.

    Not to defend these two...whatever we want to call them, but to be clear, Fraud is a legal term that can refer to information that is disclosed after an event that would have conceivably impacted the event. This information was not necessarily concealed, but the meaning could have been misunderstood or had not been confirmed with certainty prior to the event. It can also refer to something that one party should have known or had a duty to know, but didn't. Fraud is often the basis of a marriage annullment, and does not indicate criminal behavior or intent to deceive.

    In this case, "Fraud" could mean that he thought (or assumed) they were going to move to Minnesota after they got married and she needed to stay in New York due to a contractual obligation to her show. In which case, fraud would be a term used to describe the misunderstanding about living arrangements post-wedding, and not that she married him just to have a wedding.

    There are plenty of reasons to find these two distasteful without having to make ones up. 😉

    I actually feel sorry for Kris H. I also feel sorry for the other guy Scott as well, even thou he is an a** when he is ready. He (Scott) is/was trying to change but she is such a nag. These ladies don't treat their men well just like the mother is with Bruce.

    When Renee Zellwinger divorced Kenny Chesney she claimed fraud because he is a closet gay. It is fair for Kris to claim fraud because it was. She just wanted a wedding and not a husband.

      These women are not role models; for that matter no one in entertainment should be your role model. This is reality T.V., just entertainment nothing more. If your looking for role models try looking to the real people in your life.
