As you know, venal succubus Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from idiot man child Kris Humphries and everyone realized (was reminded?) their marriage was a ploy for publicity. Now, Humphries is striking back in a pretty stunning display of “Not if I divorce you first!” by filing for an annulment. But why?

Apparently Humphries was the only person alive (well, one out of a few hundred) who didn’t realize this was a union forged in attention whoredom. He’s citing fraud and claiming he was duped into a sham marriage.

According to TMZ:

Kris was not in on the alleged fraud, meaning he did not stage the marriage for Kim’s reality show.  We’re told Kris wanted this to be a genuine marriage, but Kim was never really on board.

Kim has already filed for divorce — but according to the docs, obtained by TMZ — Kris wants Kim to pay his attorney’s fees.

Now there’s going to occur the inevitable legal battle over community assets and we can be sure it will (at least in part) by televised.

Somehow, they’ve managed to make this into an even bigger circus than we imagined. …Kind of impressed?
