Kim Kardashian asks court to block spousal support for Kris Humphries

Apparently Kris Humphries was one of the last ones to know that Kim Kardashian is beginning divorce proceedings. And Ms. Kardashian is throwing on a full court press. Not only has she hired celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser (past clients Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, Kiefer Sutherland), but she’s also asked a judge to make sure that Humphries keeps his mitts off her money. Huffington Post:

According to divorce docs filed by Kardashian Monday, the reality starlet asked the court to reject any request by Humphries for spousal support. She also asked that both parties cover their own legal fees.

The couples assets will be divided in accordance with their prenup. According to Us Weekly, the prenup protects all of Kardashian’s assets prior to the marriage (the Kardashians pulled in $65 million last year alone), and she will also keep everything she earned during their short union.

By contrast, Humpries — who is currently unemployed due to the NBA lockout — reportedly makes around $3.2 million a year.

Meanwhile, Humphries seems taken aback by the news.

“I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work,” the NBA star told TMZ.

    I’ll feel bad for him as soon as I quit laughing. Grab a sammich, it could be a while.

    I hope the judge rules against this woman. She needs to learn not to play around with something as serious as marriage.

      What can a judge do? People get married, regret it, and get divorced real fast all the time. The fact that the whole sordid affair was planned out is irrelevant. Hell, Hump may have been in on it from the start. I kinda hope he was; otherwise she’s like the biggest See You Next Tuesday in history.

    What I really want to say about her is too inappropriate to post.
