There’s one person who is not happy about Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy news: Kris Humphries. Kim and the NBA star are still legally married, and Kris is planning to make the divorce as difficult as possible.
“He is still bitter,” said an inside source. “He believes that he was a total pawn in their sham marriage. He truly loved Kim, but thinks she used him so she could have a wedding special on E! and make money.”
Kris reportedly wants a significant amount of money from Kim for what she’s put him through, especially because he has suspicions that she cheated on him with Kanye West.
“He wants to use that as ammunition in the divorce to get more money,” said the source. “He also wants to drag it out as long as possible just to infuriate Kim.”
Kim is so fed up that she’s close to giving Kris what he wants just so he’ll go away.
“All Kim has ever wanted was to get married and have a family,” the source said. “Now that she’s pregnant, she wants to pay Kris off, move on with her life and marry Kanye.”
Shockingly, Kim wants another TV wedding. She’s already shopping the special to networks — and E! has turned her down.
“She hasn’t learned anything from her tacky TV wedding,” the source said. “The producers at E! told her that they don’t want to do another wedding special with her. They fear there will be more backlash and the ratings will be poor.”
Bethenny Frankel’s marriage a sham?
Bethenny Frankel is saying she’s distraught over her divorce from husband Jason Hoppy. But inside sources tell me the marriage was a setup.
“Bethenny knew that she needed to get a husband and have a baby in order to get her own breakout show,” the source said. “That’s exactly what she did. She was never in love with Jason.”
Bethenny has had problems with Jason for a long time — she first met with a divorce lawyer almost a year ago.
“This has been a long time coming,” said the source. “She got what she wanted. Now that her reality show is canceled and she has a new talk show, she has no need for him anymore.”
Britney Spears and fiancé Jason Trawick have also split up, simply because he was tired of serving as more of a baby sitter than a boyfriend.
“The romance was long gone between them,” a source said. “The role of baby-sitter just wore him down. He wants his life back.”
Even though they’ve been engaged for a year, they never moved forward with wedding plans.
“It was a big red flag that they made no wedding arrangements,” the source said. “They knew the breakup was inevitable.”
