Eighteen months after Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian got divorced, Kris's family has broken their silence. Kris's Aunt Dedria and Uncle Mike have come forth and echoed the sentiments Kris has been litigiously implicating for over a year now: That his and Kim's marriage was a sham; that Kim only wed him for ratings; and that Kris Jenner is the evil, mustache-twirling mastermind behind it all.
Aunt Dedria, who had no idea who Kim was when she learned that her nephew was engaged to her, stated: "It was a sham. My understanding of marriage is people are going to give it more than 72 days unless there’s serious abuse. If I felt somebody had duped me and used me in front of the whole world, I would be very angry." She then added: "An annulment says it wasn’t valid in the first place. She should admit that it was a sham at the very least." Uncle Mike, who used less euphemistic terminology said: "I can just see him wanting a pound of flesh back. I believe he wants payback." He then blasted Kris Jenner, saying: "He wants to thump that mom -- she uses people. I would dearly love for her to get thumped. She’s the mastermind. You can just see that’s the brains making that thing go. The wicked part is she’s using her family to make that thing. All of it’s really due to her." He also called Kanye a "chump" for getting "mixed up" with Kim.
I wouldn't dispute anything Uncle Mike or Aunt Dedria said, as I, too, believe that Kim and Kris's marriage was solely for the purpose of ratings. But at the same time, having relatives speak to the media is just turning this shit show into more of a media circus than it already is. I think most people think Kim married Kris for fame. No need to belabor the point by having relatives come out of the woodwork.
Part of me hopes that Kris gets what he wants, as it would be epically awesome if Kim had to come out and say their marriage was fake, but another part of me just wants this to be over with. Enough already. I feel bad that Kris got/is getting/will get screwed, but I think it's time he close this chapter of his life and move on already.
Do you think Kim and Kris' marriage was fake?
