Kim Kardashian making Kris Humphries look like a jerk, so he's suing
The spin war has begun over at E!, which is in full damage-control mode after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries after a mere 72 days. The solution? Go all-out to make Kris look like a giant jackass who mistreated his young bride. Yeah, that's the ticket.
Us Weekly sends the first volley, running a cover story that says Humphries (described as an "out-of-work NBA star," because yeah, he locked out all the players himself) loved the perks of being a celebrity and liked to stay out all night. Never mind he made $3.2 million last season and actually has a talent besides doing nasty things on video.
"He belittled her in front of people," a source tells the mag about Kris. "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." And worst of all, he one time called her a "fat ass." Not a nice thing to say, but prove him wrong, Kim.
"Kris has a legal team investigating his options," another source tells that glossy. "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." That's because E! has decided to make him look like a homophobic meathead.
"Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim's best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality," a source says. "Jonathan isn't gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset." Kris' daddy, William Humphries, even says the scenes in question were scripted and that Kris was "100 percent used."
Let's get one thing straight, friends of The Juice*: We never believe anything we see on reality TV. Those shows are totally cobbled together in a way that makes things appear anything but true-to-life. Didn't you see what Ben Stiller did in Reality Bites? Besides, we already know they're edited to portray impossible scenarios. They made Kim seem likable, didn't they?
