Kris Humphries Shouldn't Want a Dime From Kim Kardashian, Much Less $7 Million

Kris HumphriesFor a marriage that only lasted 72 days, the ensuing aftermath of Kim Kardashian's split from Kris Humphries feels like it has droned on forever. And it's still far from finished. The latest news: Humphries is reportedly secretly asking for $7 million in order to walk away from the marriage and spare Kim an ugly court case.

If my math is right, that's about $97,222 a day for the length of their marriage, which seems nothing short of ridiculous. Now he may deserve something, but that's krazy.


According to TMZ's sources, he and Kim opened a joint account before their nuptials and put all of the money they made from the wedding into it, but  he's never seen a penny of it. If that's the case, then  I agree it should be split evenly between the two, though that doesn't seem so complicated, especially because there was reportedly a pretty tight prenup in place. Beyond that, however, I don't think Kim owes him a dime nor should he want one if he has any integrity or pride.

IF it was a "fraud" of a marriage then I believe he went into it knowing it was a fraud. I don't in anyway believe that Kim conned him into walking down the aisle, and that he truly believed they were headed for happily ever after. If there's guilt there, it's his to share.

If it was really just a relationship gone wrong, something they both jumped into too quickly without thinking through, then it was just an unfortunate mistake. The marriage lasted less than three months; he gained an incredible amount of publicity, and endorsement and potential endorsement deals; and he should just call it a day and wish her well.

At least one source told the TMZ he really doesn't care about the money, that it's an annulment that he really wants. If that's that case and he'd really walk without a dime, then I would actually muster up some respect for the guy. But asking for an obnoxious amount of money just makes him even more obnoxious in this whole big obnoxious mess.
