TV Doc Brands Kim K.
An Abuser

Celebrity Rehab's Dr. Drew is weighing in on the Kris Humphries-Kim Kardashian divorce drama. The TV doc has prompted dialogue and debate after accusing the reality star of battering her estranged spouse.

Now that Courtney Love has volunteered to be Lindsay Lohan's pseudo-sobriety specialist, TV's Dr. Drew Pinsky has turned his focus to weighing in on the business of other folks in Tinseltown -- like Kim Kardashian's "If-You-Blinked-You-Missed-It" marriage to Kris Humphries.

The professional headshrinker has branded Kim a husband-beater after catching the footage from the premiere of the E! docu-soap Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Dr. Drew pointed to the scene in which an enraged Kim (who is 5-foot 2-inches), punches the 6-foot 9-inch Kris for accidentally breaking her toenail as evidence that the short-lived marriage was an abusive one.

"You ruined my whole pedicure. Seriously, my whole toenail just broke in half. It hurts, Kris. You always do this (bleep) to me because you're so rough," Kim yelled, socking her now-estranged husband in the arm.

"What you are seeing there is domestic violence," the Celebrity Rehab doc remarked as he reviewed the footage on his self-titled HLN talk show this week. "A lot of people watching this may not understand this. And I get that. It looks playful. What's the big deal? But it's a massive deal."

Pinsky argued that Kim's petite frame and the jovial nature of the former couple's roughhousing is of little importance:

"Anybody listening at home or viewing this has to understand the spectrum of domestic violence. And this is an incontrovertible piece of evidence of someone who is engaged in a domestic violence relationship… When it starts like that, and it always starts like that… it progresses. The size and gender doesn't matter. It goes to a horrible place."

Pinsky's guest, clinical psychologist Michelle Golland, strongly agreed. "We wouldn't let our children do this to each other," she said.

Meanwhile, Kris just wants to pretend his 72-day marriage to Kim never happened. Don't we all?

The jilted basketballer is filing for a legal separation rather than a divorce. He wants the marriage annulled — as in, totally wiped from the public record. Poof!

Annulments are traditionally granted when a marriage hasn't been consummated, so the tabloid magazine, Star, must be happy that Kris' decision totally backs up their new cover story claiming that he's gay.

What about when Kim was packing and Kris made her get into the shower with him, she told him no but that didn't matter? I can only imagine what happened next, would we call that rape? Kim did the right thing and ran as fast as she could!

I dont agree with Dr Drew Kim is not absive.Stop painting her bad because she followed her heart.Kris is the one who i personally think is absive especially with his words.

I guess Dr. Drew didn't see previous episodes of Kris abusing Kim, e.g., when he picked her up and threw her into the ocean twice in Bora Bora; or the time they were at her house in the bedroom and he picked her up and threw her across the room onto the bed. It is not fun to have someone physically remove your freedom of choice in a situation. There are also the insulting verbally abusive comments that Kris made to her or about her.
