Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries' Divorce Trial Will Be On TV

Thu, February 2, 2012 5:42pm EST by 129 Comments

Kris Humprhies and Kim Kardashian are headed for a very public divorce trial in LA, and it is likely that it will all be open to the public and televised, HollywoodLife.com has learned.

That means that Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries and probably many KardashiansKourtney, Khloe and even Kris Jenner too — will have to testify about all aspects of the Kardashian/Humphries marriage for the world to hear and the trial will likely go on for weeks, says family attorney Vikki Zeigler.

“There are no divorce settlement talks going on,” a source close to the Humphries family reveals to HollywoodLife.com exclusively.

Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris on Oct. 31, 2011, 72 days after her wedding and then Kris Humphries filed to annul the marriage based on fraud on Dec. 1.

As much as she wants, Kim can not end her marriage to Kris right now until a judge rules whether or not there is “clear and convincing evidence” that fraud has occurred in the marriage.

Kris truly believes that “Kim had no intention to stay married to him and she just got married to make money,” the Humphries source reveals to HollywoodLife. “He and his team wouldn’t go forward if they didn’t believe that they could prove this [in court.]”

So right now, Kim and Kris are on track to face-off in court by the end of summer and they will most likely find that the proceedings are all televised because California has an “open policy on popular court cases.” In other words, cases that are expected to be highly popular like the O.J. Simpson case, which Kim’s father Robert Karadshian prosecuted , and the Lindsay Lohan cases, are all open to the television cameras.

The only way for Kim to keep her divorce from airing in public is to make a financial settlement with Kris or to agree to his request for an annulment based on fraud.

The problem for Kim is that is she agrees to the annulment, there’s a lot of risk on her side, points out the source. Aside from damaging her reputation, there may be suppliers to her “fairy tale” wedding who won’t be too happy, if it’s found to be a fraudulent marriage.

So what will Kris’s team use to prove the marriage is fraud?

“Kim was filming scenes saying that she was dissatisfied with her marriage during the week of Sept. 8, which was barely three weeks after the wedding,” says the source. “His team believe that the season of  KKTNY was developed with the theme of divorce, without Kris being made aware of it.”

Kris never had any idea that Kim was unhappy in her marriage to him, says the source. “Kris was never in the scenes where they discuss Kim’s unhappiness and he never caught Kim talking to her sisters about being unhappy.”

So couldn’t Kris tell that Kim was being cool to him as she was on the show?

“When the pair wasn’t filming, Kim was normal and affectionate to Kris,” the source contends.

“Kris understood that he was committing himself to the Kardashian way of life,” so he wasn’t surprised when he was asked to film scenes that seemed scripted.

Interestingly, scenes that were filmed for KKTNY that appeared on the show, like Kim refusing to allow Kris to move his boxes into her house in LA, can actually bolster Kris’s case that the marriage was a fraud, says Vikki.

“It shows that she never had any intent of doing what a wife is supposed to do — live with her husband.” Vikki explains.

Vikki adds that there are several KKTNY scenes that could be used as evidence in court, including “the fact that she was so cold to him on camera, and that she was talking about having major issues in her marriage so soon after her wedding and that she never made a real effort to repair her marriage.”

HollywoodLife.com has also learned that Kris Humphries may be initiating other civil cases against Kim, according to the source.”Kris thought he was getting married for life and he found out he was getting a divorce on a radio show,” says the source.

Whew! We don’t think that when Kim and the Kardashians planned her Fairytale Wedding Special and this last season of KKTNY, that they thought they might be participating in  a “real” TV show following their divorce trial with Kris!

What do you think of all this, HollywoodLifers?

They get married on TV, they get divorced on TV… how much is the media willing to pay them to broadcast every part of their relationship?

It’s funny how she stated she wanted privacy during this matter yet it’s aired on E! Weekly and her divorce may be televised as well. Wow Kat-Face can’t even seem sincere…LOL. As for Kris Humphries he’s just as bad as Kim-K to me, he is such and idiot and I believe he actually has a learning disability so I don’t want to be to harsh here, but he knew what he was getting into, I don’t believe for a second he so innocent. Just because of a learning curb.

It seemed like Kim knew from the very first ep that she had no intentions to stay with kris. from the start she was complaining about how messy he is and how she can’t live with that & bla bla bla. every issue that came up that made her ‘decide’ she wanted a device she baught on in the first place. she was the one who decided to stop her birth control pills then when discussing where they were going to live if they had children, cracked it because he didnt agree with her. kris might have not said things in the right way but all his points were fair and true. I think she had regrets before the wedding and didnt know how to back out. any other couple would try counseling, even moving in with wag other to see how they go, but she didn’t want I try anything.. her mind was made up.. what ever happened to marriage being sacred ?

Unless it was intentionally put into a context to make Kris look bad, Kris’ behavior on many occasions didn’t exactly come off as him taking on the role of a devoted husband. He was constantly critiscizing Kim, didn’t inform Kim that his sister was coming down, kept putting her down..let’s not forget how he behaved with her friends. He had a party and was negligent enough to create an atmosphere where random ppl were in their bedroom…and generally antagonizing Kim, knowing what upsets her. He been told his friend he wants a divorce. It’s rather ridiculous for him to cry fraud now. I think he’s just hugely humiliated, which is understandable, and now wants to get even. Will be interesting to see how it all unfolds in court….

i dont understand why you people hate on kim and her family so much…yeah its obvious they’re famewhores but they didnt do anything personal to you…and u can bash her but it doesnt stop her from earning all those millions and hate is not a good feeling, its not okay that bringing someone down makes u happy. i’ve watched her shows, and i think kim and khris were cute together and i wanted them to work things out. it would’ve made kim earn a bit more respect, i think.

Why do you care so much? When you’re famous, you get criticized, whether it be good or bad. The Kardashians want and look for fame, and they get it. Just because it isn’t good fame doesn’t mean that they all of a sudden can ask for privacy. A wedding is a sacred event, and the Kardashians turned it into a media circus. And clearly, you don’t see that the Kardashian empire is tumbling down. Her fans are what made them big, and once the divorce hit, a lot of them felt betrayed and taken for stupid. THAT’S when all her fans turned into not liking them anymore. And the Kardashian make people feel bad by using them, quit acting like they’re little angels who never do anything wrong. The Kardashians use people for their selfish ways and once they have no use for them anymore, they drop them. So stop blaming everyone else, it’s their actions that were the tipping point. Not the people who dislike them.

And, it’s not ok for you to lecture people on what they are allowed to feel and write about. Grow up. People can rag on her as much as their little hearts desire, Kimmy knew that when she signed on for all of this.

Really? So Kris was doing was newlywed husbands are supposed to do? There were also scenes from the show with him not telling his wife his sister was coming to town, going out partying, not making an effort to hang out w/Kim or get to know sisters. He probably married her for the celebrity benefits.

You’re an idiot. SO many things about the Kardashians have been exposed, but you’re still riding their d-ck. They are money hungry, narcissistic, selfish broads. They don’t care about anyone. Just because you watch their shows doesn’t mean you know them, they edit their shows to put them in a good light. Why do you think the Kardashians threaten to sue everyone who talks about them badly? But more then usually, it ends up being true. People aren’t made that Kim Kardashian got divorced, they’re made that 10 MILLION dollars were spent on a wedding that didn’t even last long. Plus it’s even come out of her mouth, she never loved Kris. A simple Google search will tell you that, it was her first statement after she got divorced and got all the backlash. So how you can say that she didn’t get married for the money and publicity? Unless you’re in the family, as a sibling of Kim, I doubt you don’t know sh-t. They lie to Bruce, why the hell wouldn’t they lie to their fans?

FACT CHECK: Robert Kardashian did not proescute the O.J. Simpson case, he was a long time friend of Simpson and was on the defense team, possily to avoid being called as a witness for the prosecution.

OMG she’s divorcing you because your an immature insensitive A-Hole. Your lucky she put up with you for 72 days till she just couldn’t do it anymore! Would you rather her have stayed in a marriage she was unhappy in? If anyone was in it for the money I think Humpty Dumpty was till he had a good fall! that’s what he’s pissed about not being able to be riding that Kardashian Kash train anymore!

You are honestly mentally retarded. You keep commenting making it seem in your eyes that Kim was this little angel, please. She was in it for the money and publicity of the marriage, get that through your head doll. It seems that you are riding the Kardashians d-ck extremely hard to be defending their narcissistic ways. It’s even come out of her mouth, she never loved Kris to begin with. She married him because she got caught up in the ‘hoopla’ of the wedding, not marriage itself.

God, how I wish I would have had the nerve and good sense to do the same thing when I discovered I had married an abusive, greedy s.o.b. when I was only 23 yrs old. I was ashamed of having made a horrible mistake that only got worse each year. I gave my worthless ex-husband every opportunity to grow up and realize what he stood to lose but instead he continually walked all over me, even throwing me up against the wall of MY condo because I had hidden a bag of chocolate chips to make cookies 2 months after we were married. He refused to pay for any of his expenses even though he had a job and lived off of me like the parasite he is the entire 6 yrs I was stuck with him. To all women who wake up and find they made a mistake and were fooled/tricked into marriage, I hope that KIM comes out of this the winner.

Ease up people.. She was searching for true love, as all us females do !
you cannot help who you fall inlove with or who fall out of love with! we have all thought we’ve found our forever and always but then we learn the hard way it isn’t. Theres lots of love found and more love lost! we’d all still be with our first boyfriend if people didn’t fall out of love.. Pretty unrealistic hey?! But at that time we thought he was the one! ….Now I don’t disagree that everything was rushed! Regardless, Kim keep your head up, there IS love after love

I am happy Kris Humphries is following through with the divorce case. This will show future reality shows to respect the rights of those participating in the show. Honesty and integrity should always come before television ratings. You go Kris! May the truth prevail and your reputation of a straight up guy be protected. I truly believe Kris Humphries had good intentions towards his committment in the marriage. Hopefully, Kim Kardashian will learn not to take advantage of the men she chooses to be with in the future.

No need to bring a historic philosopher into this(Hypocrates was a man…you are trying to call us hypocrites). And no, we’re not hypocrites. I read this crap the same reason I used to watch Jerry Springer-to feel better about myself. So yeah, I think the Kardashians blow hard, but I’ll still read about them, because it makes me realize my life is still pretty good.
