Report: Kris Humphries to File for Annulment, Not Divorce

Kim Kardashian's soon-to-be ex-husband plans to seek a legal separation, according to a new report from People.


Sources close to Kris Humphries claim he wants to annul the 72-day marriage, rather than sign the divorce papers. The New Jersey Nets star plans to file the documents in the next few days.

Earlier this month, Kris had reportedly agreed to sign the divorce papers after Kim flew to Minnesota, but it seems he's had a change of heart and has opted to seek an annulment instead. An annulment would mean that the marriage was never valid.

Meanwhile, Humprhies, 26, was reportedly "disappointed" with how he was portrayed on the season premiere of "Kim and Kourtney Take New York," according to RadarOnline. The show, in its second season, kicked off on Sunday to high ratings, as viewers were given an opportunity to see the couple's troublesome situation come to a boiling point.

Among the bickering that took place during the premiere, Kris told Kim she ate too much cake on their wedding day, and Kim punched Kris, saying he ruined her pedicure.

An insider close to Humphries said Kris watched the episode in "utter horror, because it's just not a true depiction about what was actually going on between Kim and Kris. Kris did jokingly say that Kim ate too much wedding cake, but what viewers didn't see was Kim nagging Kris about working."

Kim and Kris were married on August 20, and Kim filed for divorce on October 31, citing irreconcilable differences.

Damon Thomas

Kim was previously married to record producer Damon Thomas. In 2000, 20-year-old Kim married Thomas in a quickie Las Vegas wedding. After three years, the couple divorced but not before some nasty allegations. In divorce papers that leaked in 2010, she accused Thomas of physical and emotional abuse. Thomas denied the allegations and accused his ex-wife of being "obsessed with fame."

Kardashian sued for invasion of privacy and received a $5 million settlement. By the end of the year, the couple had split, but by then E! had begun airing "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." And the rest is history!
