Kris Humphries is trying to get Kim Kardashian to pay him the whopping sum of $7 million to officially extricate herself from their marriage, TMZ reports. (Wait, they’re actually still married?)
The athlete’s lawyer — based in Minnesota, so clearly out of his league going up against the daughter of O.J. Simpson’s attorney — is said to be threatening an “ugly, public trial” if Kim doesn’t fork over the money.
But not surprisingly, the reality star’s legal team isn’t impressed by the ultimatum — they reportedly pointed out that the couple had a prenup; the marriage only lasted 72 days; and Kris actually made money on the marriage, what with it being televised and all.
Besides, we’re thinking that his threat about dragging out the divorce might have backfired. Has Kris really not yet figured out that for Kim, there’s no such thing as bad publicity?
Eva: Single again
Eva Longoria now has to start looking for work and looking for love. As she prepares for “Desperate Housewives” to end its TV run, the actress has also reportedly ended her relationship with boyfriend Eduardo Cruz.
“It was a mutual decision,” a source tells Us magazine. “They are staying friends.”
“She’s focusing on work and the end of ‘Desperate Housewives,’” adds the source.
The actress, who turns 37 on March 15, had been dating the 27-year-old singer and younger brother of Penelope Cruz for a little more than a year after her split from husband Tony Parker. The passionate couple seemed to get serious quickly, and last we heard, they were very much still hot and heavy.
Well, look at it this way: They had a pretty good run for a rebound romance!
Olivier: Bling of truth
Since January, Halle Berry has been cagey about whether she actually got engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez — but now we can consider the cat out of the bag.
Though the actress said she had sworn off marriage after two failed ones, evidently Olivier changed her mind. When asked about the speculation by the Miami Herald, he sniffed, “Yes, of course it’s true.”
“There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it’s a lie!” Olivier added. “They have nothing to do with this.”
He noted that Halle’s emerald engagement bauble was designed by Robert Mazlo.
Don’t you just hate it when jewelers try to take credit for the engagement ring you bought your Oscar-winning fiancee? The nerve of some people!
