Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian’s marriage only lasted 72 days before she filed for divorce and now speculation she had married for money and publicity were rife.
According to Us Weekly, the breakdown of the relationship was in fact down to basketball star Kris Humphries and his mean behaviour.
It has been claimed that Kris Humphries, 26, not only neglected his new wife, but he made a series of derogatory comments towards and is accused of referring to Kim Kardashian’s famous sizable derriere as a “fat ass”.
The magazine also reports that the basketball star was brutal with his comments towards his new wife and insulted her constantly.
A source told Us Weekly: “He belittled her in front of people. He’d call her stupid. It was truly sickening.
“He tried to control Kim by bringing her down…He would say truly terrible things. One time, he said she had no talent and her fame wouldn’t last.”
It has also been alleged that Kris Humphries is planning to sue Kim Kardashian for $10 million over his role in the upcoming “Kim and Kourtney take New York” series.
Life&Style magazine claimed: “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.”
In the trailer for the upcoming “Kim and Kourtney take New York” series viewers see a furious Kim Kardashian blasting Kris Humphries for his partying ways and asking why she found out he wasn’t even in the country through Twitter.
Kourtney Kardashian is seen offering her distraught sister relationship advice suggesting the marriage was over before it ever really began.
Kim Kardashian announced she was filing for divorce on October 31, just 72 days after their lavish wedding.
In the wake of their split both kept a low profile and Kim Kardashian cut a trip to Australia short before visiting Kris in his hometown.
Kim Kardashian then went to work on Tyler Perry’s new film The Marriage Counsellor in Atlanta but has returned to LA and was cheering on her brother Robert in Dancing With The Stars yesterday.
While Kris Humphries cancelled personal appearances in the wake of the split last week he stepped out as the face of a watch brand, cashing in on his heightened fame.
Spokespeople for both Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were unavailable for comment earlier today.
Meanwhile, RadarOnline reports Kim Kardashian’s manager and mother Kris Jenner has got her on lockdown – and is limiting her public appearances until the backlash over her divorce has settled down.
Kris Jenner has told Kim Kardashian to stay out of the spotlight and has gone into damage control after being shocked at the amount of bad Press the short-lived marriage has received.
A source told RadarOnline: “They did not anticipate the extreme backlash and the damage it would cause to the K-brand as a whole.
“The whole empire has been affected by this dumb marriage and Kris Jenner is all about getting paid.”
