Apart from his basketball career, Kris Humphries is best known for being the ex-husband of The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian. The former couple was married for a total of 72 days.
Kris and Kim began dating in October 2010. Nearly after less than a year of dating, Humphries proposed to Kardashian in May 2011. The pair walked down the aisle in August of the same year. The two of them tied the knot on August 20, 2011.
The athlete and the fashion mogul’s wedding and the preparations for the big day were covered in a two-part E! News special which aired on the channel in early October 2011. But Kris and Kim’s marriage wasn’t built to last forever.
On October 31, 2011, it was revealed that Kim had filed for divorce from Kris after 72 days of marriage. On December 1, 2011, Humphries filed his response to Kim’s petition. At that point, he asked the court for an annulment on the grounds of fraud or a decree of legal separation rather than the requested divorce. After a long legal battle, the pair finally reached a settlement in April 2013 and their divorce got finalized on June 3, 2013.
What did Kim Kardashian have to say about Kris Humphries?
In the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reunion episode that saw the light of day on June 17, 2021, Kim went on to say that she owes Kris an apology. She also stated that she dealt with the pair’s split “totally the wrong way.”
Before Kim and Kris’ rehearsal dinner, her mom Kris Jenner tried to convince her to not get married. Kim recalled her mom saying, “What you said to me is: ‘I’m going to put you in a car, no one will find you, just leave and I’ll handle it.'”
Kim further added, “And I thought, ‘Okay, we’re filming this for a TV show. If I leave, I’m going to be known as the runaway bride forever and it’s going to be a huge joke, and I think I just have cold feet.’ So I was like, ‘Okay guys, it’s just cold feet, I got this, it’s cold feet, we’re filming the show.'”
Then, Kardashian addressed the rumors that stated her marriage to Kris Humphries was a publicity stunt. She said, “The show paid us, obviously, a fee to film the show. I took my entire fee and probably Kris’ because I wanted a bigger wedding than what they were going to pay for. So I used all of our production money on the wedding, right. So, if that was fake, I would have saved my money.”
Soon after, the host of the reunion episode, Andy Cohen asked Kim, “Would you say you partially went through with the wedding because of the show?” She said, ‘yes’ and continued, “Because I felt pressured, I felt like I was going to let everyone down.” She also confessed that she handled the pair’s split the wrong way and owes him an apology.
Kardashian shared, “I was so nervous to break up with someone, I handled it totally the wrong way. I fully broke up with him in the worst way, and I couldn’t, I just didn’t know how to deal, I learned so much from it.” Andy asked Kim, “Do you think you owe him an apology?” to which she responded, “Absolutely, and I tried to, I tried calling him for months.”
Kim disclosed that Humphries wanted an annulment of the duo’s marriage instead of a divorce, meanwhile, she insisted on getting a divorce. She stated she wishes she had gone with the annulment.
The social media queen went on to say, “All of his friends got up and said hi to me. He just literally looked at me and wouldn’t even speak to me. He’s very faith-based, and so, I’m sure he would have loved to not have marriage on his record. He wanted an annulment.”
Kardashian added, “The only legal way to get an annulment is if fraud is involved, so he marked fraud to get an annulment. So the whole world wondered, ‘What is this fraud?’ … If I was mature, I would have wanted the annulment too. I wish I was only married once.”
