We know how ecstatic Kanye, Kim Kardashian and her family and friends are about the couple’s engagement, but what does the family of her ex, Kris Humphries, think about it? The New York Daily News spoke with William Humphries about it, and while he didn’t want to be too negative, he said that her decision to get married to someone else so soon after her divorce could lead to another divorce–and pain for Yeezy. But he says, he does wish her well, despite the embarrassment she brought upon his son by ending their marriage after only 72 days, and then starting a relationship with West soon after: “I don’t really care, it’s water under the bridge. But I wish her all best”
But when asked what he thought about the engagement ring, which was made my Lorraine Schwartz (the same company Kris bought his engagement ring for her from), he said that he believed Kim probably picked it out for herself and controlled the whole situation.
“(West) probably didn’t choose it. Does a leopard really change its spots? I don’t think so. Not much changes, it’s just different actors this time around.”
However, in the same interview with the New York Daily News, a representative said that West custom designed the engagement ring himself, so there was no help from his bride-to-be.
When asked what his son Kris thinks about all the hoopla around Kim’s new engagement, pops says that after his brief time as part of the family, his son isn’t worried about the Kardashian clan anymore (“I’m sure he doesn’t think about that stuff anymore. He’s getting ready to play”) But in his own opinion, Williams says that Kim is going to mess around and end up like her mom Kris, who is going through her second divorce, this time with husband Bruce Jenner.
“Well, if Bruce and Kris are any indication, I’d say good luck. She’s stepping right into it all over again.”
Very interesting responses from papa Humphries, but what do you think about what he had to say? Is he speaking the “real,” or possibly speaking out of a little left over anger towards Kim?
As MN reported before, Kris Humphries planned to get rid of his ex-wife’s engagement ring in a New York auction. Estimates claimed that Kim Kardashian’s old trinket would not surpass $500,000 among bidders. Pricing experts were nearly $250,000 off target!
After bids bounced around four buyers, the reality TV star’s 16-carat diamond ring sold for a whopping $749,000, Today reports. However, sources say that NBA player Humphries doesn’t plan on keeping all of the fortune. He plans to donate a portion to charity. ”The rep adds that Humphries hasn’t decided on which charity to donate the proceeds to, but that it’s a “top priority” for the 28-year-old basketballer,” Today said.
In defense of those who question whether Humphries had the right to sell the ring, a Humphries rep said. ”The ring is indeed Kris’ property that he received through his marriage dissolution. He has long-since moved on and is very much looking forward [...] to returning to the court this upcoming NBA season as a Boston Celtic.”
Kardashian and Humphries got engaged in May of 2011 and wedded on Aug. 20 of the same year. After the marriage lasted only 72 days, the divorce was finalized in June of 2013.
Perhaps it was part of a court order, but if it wasn’t, would you have given the ring back if you were Kim?
In a last-ditch effort to show America he’s completely over his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries is wiping off the last residue of their failed 72-day-long marriage by auctioning off her diamond engagement ring, US Weekly reports.
The ring is going up for sale at Christie’s auction house in New York City on October 15th. The 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement band is set to reel in between $300,000 and $500,000.
Humphries was not specifically named as the seller, but according to a source in US Weekly, “The ring in question is identical to the one Kardashian wore during her brief engagement and marriage to the athlete.”
The magazine also has details about the ring. “A rep for Christie’s confirmed to the site that the bauble up for auction is a Lorraine Schwartz creation with a 16.21-carat center diamond and two 1.80-carat side diamonds — the exact dimensions of Kardashian’s ring. The auction house could not disclose the seller’s name but said it was ‘a gentleman,’” it says.
Due to client confidentiality, Kris Humphries could not be named, but a close friend of the Kardashians tells US Weekly that the auctioned gem is 100 percent the same ring. ”Kim has been waiting for the day he would auction it. Everyone always asked what Kim did with the ring — she silently gave it back over a year ago! And Kris waited until the divorce was final to sell it.”
Although the auction house plans to sell the ring for a half a million dollars, US Weekly says that the ring is worth $2 million.
It seems like celebrities are in a rush to do everything from growing up to walking down the aisle. So many celebs get married after dating for a couple months or a year, which is just crazy to us regular folks. However, its pretty standard practice among the young, rich and famous. Check out celeb couples that just couldn’t wait and how their marriage ended up.
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian
After dating for just one month, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom walked down the aisle after meeting at a party in 2009. The couple has been going strong, but with reports of Lamar Odom’s drug abuse there may be trouble in paradise.
Husbands On Deck: Reports Claim Kim And Kanye Are Getting Married Immediately After Birth Of Their Child
After finally reaching a divorce settlement with ex Kris Humphries last month, rumor has it that Kim Kardashian is ready to be wifed up again, and very soon. But first thing first–she has to have that baby.
According to Radar Online, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will allegedly be trying to tie the knot in Los Angeles soon after their little one comes into the world. The source, an individual close to the Kardashians, told Radar that Kanye has signed off on “all of the stipulations,” and is down with whichever wedding planner Kim wants. However, he’s not about to have the ceremony become some sort of front-of-the-magazine spectacle, as her marriage to Kris Humphries was. No selling of wedding photos to any magazines for the sake of just having some extra pocket change. But they claim that he reportedly wants to do a short film (no word on what it will specifically be about), and any profits made would go to one of Kim’s charities of choice.
Word is, if the divorce paperwork is finalized in time (the baby is reportedly supposed to arrive in June, after she originally told the media July to throw folks off), all should be good to go. But until then, Yeezy will stay in Paris, doing whatever he’s doing…while Kim jets all over the world to be with him. Ready to pop.
It would be nice if before they actually married, they were in the same place together for more than a few days…I’m just saying. But we’ll have to wait and see what happens won’t we?
The 536-Day Divorce Battle To End A 72-Day Marriage Is Over! Kim Kardashian And Kris Humphries Are (Almost) Officially Divorced
TMZ is reporting that reality star Kim Kardashian and Brooklyn Nets power forward, Kris Humphries have finally reached a settlement, bringing an end to their seemingly never-ending divorce. A judge dissolved the pairs marriage today during a court hearing.
While the terms of the settlement have not been officially announced, sources tell TMZ that Kris dropped annulment demands, is no longer claiming that Kim committed fraud by marrying him and he will not receive the requested $7 million that he’d originally asked for. He actually won’t be receiving any money from Kim for that matter. The insider also says that both parties will take care of their own attorney’s fees.
Official papers still need to be signed by both Kris and Kim, but the judge reportedly told Kim, ”Congratulations on your dissolution.” Kris and Kim even appear to be playing nice with one another. Kris would’ve had to pay a court penalty fee for pulling a no-show at a scheduled hearing last week pertaining to the case, but Kim kindly asked the courts to drop the penalty and they obliged, letting Kris off the hook. The divorce will be official once both parties sign off on necessary legal docs.
Thank God! Now Kim can stop crying about having Kanye’s baby while she’s someone else’s wife.
“I’m scared with the divorce, I’m probably going to have this baby being married to someone else,” Kim said during the Keeping Up With The Kardashians‘ Season 8 supertrailer.
On a more serious note, we’re sure she’s happy to have that burden lifted.
Can you believe everything you read in the tabloids? Of course not. But how do you deny things people see in black and white and color on the TV set — or on your Twitter page? That’s what these stars have done, claiming what most people see as bad behavior is really just a misrepresentation. But are they fakin’ the front to save face? Or do we have it twisted sometimes? You be the judge.
“My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me.”
Maybe Erica and I saw two different shows. She tried to have the Kimbella fight scene pulled from the show. Maybe she forgot that this video of her whoopin’ on her baby daddy in the street was already circling the web. Let’s not even get on her antics now that she’s a real cast member.
We don’t have to tell you that just like most reality shows, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a scripted and inorganic television program. But, one of the show’s producers Russell Jay recently revealed that the show is more fake than some of us even imagined, in a testimony on behalf of Kim Kardashian’s soon-to-be ex-husband Kris Humphries. Court documents retrieved by Life & Style reveal that Jay testified that many of the scenes from the show were scripted, reshot and edited by Kim to portray Kris in a negative light. He also exposed many other deceptive tactics used in the filming of the show.
One point that Jay highlighted was that Kris’s surprise proposal depicted on the show wasn’t actually a surprise at all. Jay says that Kim was well aware of the proposal beforehand and that she repeatedly filmed the scene until she nailed the perfect “surprised face.” It was also revealed that Kim would literally orchestrate scenes from scratch. For example, there was one scene where Kim is shown asking her mom and manager Kris Jenner for advice and confessing that she was having trouble in her marriage. According to Jay, the scene was filmed well after Kim filed for divorce in October of 2011.
There was also a scene where Kim blasted Kris for throwing a party in their hotel room while she was “out of town.” Jay testified that Kim was actually in the hotel the entire time and completely aware of everything that was going on. It seems that many of the crying scenes from the show weren’t even real. Jay says the Kardashians frequently used crying sticks to stimulate tears during filming.
While no one really needs to be told that Keeping Up With the Kardashians is a pile of bologna, Russell Jay’s deposition certainly helps Kris Humphries’s claim that Kim only married him for publicity reasons.
Kim and Kris are both schedule to appear in court on May 6th.

One Down, ‘Bout 8 Or 9 More To Go: Kim Kardashian Says She’s Done With Family Reality Show After Season 9
Kim Kardashian has been exposing her life to us without our permission since about 2006-2007, and since then, she’s been damn near everywhere, promoted almost everything, dated almost everybody (that was black) and made her living from being part of the overexposed. But everybody gets tired of participating in the rat race, whatever their particular rat race is, at one time or another, and according to Kim Kardashian, she’s getting tired of reality television.
According to US Weekly, even though she has signed on for season nine of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, after it’s over, she’s going to make an exit from reality television and focus on her growing family with Kanye West and the husband that won’t let go–Kris Humphries. She told DuJour magazine, “My boyfriend has taught me a lot about privacy. I’m ready to be a little less open about some things, like my relationships. I’m realizing everyone doesn’t need to know everything.”
Word?? You’re just now realizing the importance of keeping some things to yourself? Interesting…
“When you live your life so publicly, like on a reality show, people assume that they know every side of you already. But they always want more.”
But despite what the people want, Kardashian claims that she wants to back away slowly but surely from the show. It’s a part of her growing up and maturing. “I think there’s always an evolution of, you know, what you want to do in life. It’s all about finding things that really excite you and motivate you and spark you all over again. I’m realizing that no matter what, if you go into something with all these expectations and plans, once you’re actually living it, it could be completely different.”
So what could this mean for Keeping Up With the Kardashians and their spinoffs? Can it still be a reality powerhouse without Kim? Probably, but then again, do we really believe that she would be fully capable of walking away from reality television for good? She says a lot of things for attention and press, but you never know how motherhood can change people, so we’ll have to wait and see now won’t we?
These Kardashians Won’t Hold Me Back: Family Of Kris Humphries Wants Him To Give Kim A Divorce So THEY Can Move On
Seems that we’re not the only ones who think Kris Humphries needs to get on his Fantasia and go ahead and free himself, and Kim, by giving that girl a divorce. I mean seriously, it’s getting a little petty. She’s having a baby with another dude, people he plays ball with are making fun of his marital situation because they can, and no matter what he does or who he dates, talk of Kim follows him–he needs to do himself a favor and let it go already.
According to Radar Online, a source close to the family says they’re getting sick and tired of his “need to seek revenge” because being attached to the drama as a family is holding them back.
“Kris’ family finds the entire matter really annoying because they’re tired of the negative attention and don’t want to be tied to Kim at all anymore. They just want it to be over…It’s gone on too long and it’s upsetting for the family to know that Kris is out for revenge…The family doesn’t want to be connected to Kim or any of the Kardashians anymore, and they’re worried that Kris will get burned in the end.”
Humphries’ sister Kaela is particularly peeved as she’s thinking the negative attachment between her bro and Kim could be hampering her new modeling career with Ford Models. According to the source, Kaela, who is a plus-size model, seems to be getting turned down more than usual for jobs because the family thinks a lot of agencies that could help her book work are “pro Kim.”
Hmmm, I doubt all that, but it’s her story, not mine. But I will say, that even when I do see news online about Kaela getting work for different companies, a lot of sites like to claim that she’s cashing in on her brother’s sudden fame and popularity that came with dating and marrying Kim.
All in all, the family at this point doesn’t seem to have any ill will towards Kim, and it’s Kris who is still angry, but Kaela and the gang just want to move on. However, we’re not sure that’s going to happen anytime soon. Kris turned down Kim’s recent offer of $10 million for him to sign divorce papers, because, as the story continues to go, he feels that she tricked him and that the whole marriage was a fraud to begin with. He’s asking for her to go through with an annulment instead. According to Radar, their divorce trial isn’t set to happen until JUNE, so unless he cuts the bull and signs, or she just gives up and calls their time together a fraud, Kim will have to bring a child into the world with her boo Kanye, and her husband Kris on the sideline booing them along the way. Buuuuurn.
