Jilted Ex Filing Suit Against Kim?

Kris Humphries is reportedly plotting a seven-figure lawsuit against his soon-to-be ex-wife over allegations she stiffed him out of fair compensation for his role on her E! reality show.

In another embarrassing post-wedding blunder for Kim Kardashian, we've learned that the socialite's not-quite ex-husband is planning to file suit against her for cheating him out of millions he believes he's owed for his appearance on the upcoming season of her E! reality show, Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Professional hoopster Kris Humphries, 26, is still stunned that his marriage to the docu-soap star fizzled just 72 days after their lavish nuptials last August; and it's going to take more than Kim's infamous pouty lips and curvy hips to get The Hump out of her hair.

Life & Style (L&S) reports that Kris has hired a legal team as he prepares to slap his estranged wife with a lawsuit worth $10 million. Kim's net worth is valued at roughly $35 million, thanks to her reality TV empire and a bevy of endorsement deals. Even though he signed a prenuptial agreement entitling him to (Drumroll, please) absolutely nothing, the 6-foot 9-inch athlete insists Kimmy owes him a small hunk of Kardashian Kash for showing up to work on Season Two of Kourtney & Kim.

The show was filmed in the Big Apple earlier this year and focuses largely on the former couple's short-lived marriage. Humphries earned approximately $20,000 per episode and had been threatening to boycott the show over the salary dispute in the weeks before his split from Kim. Now that the exes are headed for divorce court, the claws are out and the lawyers are coming in.

"Kris has a legal team investigating his options. He's claiming his role on Kourtney & Kim Take New York is bigger than he was told, and that's why he wants more money," an unidentified source told the publication.

Kim Kardashian left mortified by footage of her ex-husband >>

Other insiders suggests that image is the real reason Kris has retained legal counsel. He's "worried about how badly he's going to be portrayed on the series," one such source squeals. Already labeled borderline verbally abusive and a "clumsy oaf" by many in the Kardashian Kamp, Kris reportedly wants to keep particularly damaging footage of him chiding Kim's bestie about his sexuality from hitting the airwaves.

"Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim's best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality," another L&S spy-witness claims. "Jonathan isn't gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticized him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset."

We won't have to wait long to figure out what all the fuss is about. Kourtney & Kim Take New York is set to premiere Nov. 27 on E!

From the moment I saw Kris Hump I thought, "What a douche Lord!" Everytime he opens his mouth, I'm annoyed and rolling my eyes. I thought Kim was a complete idiot for marrying him; but it seems like she's wised up. I wouldn't be able to handle him for more than 72-hours.

I agree with 'scamalert'. There were supposed interviews for the role of Kim's 'HUSBANDS' and hey, let's not be too hard on 'lil' Kim NO BRAIN' who wont make decisions on her own. Her MOMAGER Kris Jenner rules/runs/monitors and receives at least 10% of Kim's earnings, therefore, who do you think cooked this little scheme/publicity SCAM up? Yep, MOMMY DEAREST and Kris H. thought he'd be the one to change things...NOT when you go up against Kris Jenner and her 'DREAM SCHEME TEAM...Kim is bought and paid for a long time ago/BIRTH and Kris H. was just in the wrong place at their RIGHT time.

Kim should have known better than to marry a condescending, Minnesota farm boy like Doofus Hump!! He is trying to sue Kim because he knows once this season of "Kim and Kourtney Take NY" airs, he won't have any future endorsement deals. Going forward, Kim should let Khloe pick her future husband. It's clear Kim is a smart businesswoman but not so saavy in the love & marriage department! Doofus won't be missed, in fact, most have already forgot about him! If I had to listen to his nasal voice; I would slit my wrists immediately!! lol

Jenner/Seacrest Scam II - Kris Humphries is part of it fools(the bad guy) bought/paid for. And, if Kardashian-generated publicity is true we’re going to see how badly he treats Kimmie - if you’re stupid enough to tune in. If he plays his part well, sympathy goes to poor Kimmie and the family once again takes the public for a ride while making millions and laughing at the stupidity of those who watch their shows and buy their products.
