There was some confusion this morning regarding Kim Kardashian and Kanye's West's baby. Some people thought -- and blogged -- that California law would automatically declare Kris Humphries as the baby's daddy until "clear and convincing evidence" proved otherwise, since, technically, he and Kim are still married. But now, after an attorney spoke to The Huffington Post, things are cleared up. Evidently, "California law is clear that when a child is born to a married couple the presumption of fatherhood is in favor of the husband, but that assumes they are living together, cohabitating in legal terms. Since Kim and Kris are separated the presumption of Kris as the father would not apply."
That fact that there was any type of confusion about this at all proves one thing: Kris needs to divorce Kim now. It sucks because he's never going to get what he wants (Kim to admit their marriage was a sham), but still -- he's gotta do it. I mean, Kim is having a child. Time to move on, dude.
Even though I thought he was incredibly annoying during Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and I wondered what the hell Kim was doing with him, I feel kind of bad for him. It seriously is like Kim came into his life, completely ruined everything -- his heart, his reputation, his job -- and then peaced. Before Kim, most non-basketball fans never heard of Kris Humphries. Now everyone knows who he is, and thinks he's obnoxious (even if they feel bad for him). Kanye West hates him -- he even rapped something about him being lucky he doesn't have Jay-Z drop him from the Nets. Dude's life was wrecked, thanks to Kim. And from what it seems, he thought he was actually getting married for love, while Kim was getting married for publicity. He's basically a punchline now.

I know it probably sounds like I'm Kris' PR manager right now, but trust me, I'm not. Like I said, I just feel bad for the guy, even if he was one of the more annoying people I've ever seen on reality TV. And he needs to move on. Divorce Kim already. Close this chapter of his life. Kim will never, ever, ever in a million years admit that this marriage was a sham. She's just wearing him down. And I think this -- the baby -- should be the breaking point.
Think about it this way. It's like when you feel you've been done wrong by a company -- say, a bank or an airline. You call the toll-free number (after searching god knows how long for it); then you sit on hold; then you go through various menus; then you push buttons; then you hear a computer say: "I'm sorry, can you repeat that?" nine times; until eventually you just give up. It isn't worth it. Kim's an airline, Kris. And I hate to break it to you -- but she's too big to fail.
Do you think Kris should divorce Kim or stick to his guns?
