- Sparked by fears short-lived marriage could damage the Kardashian brand
But according to a U.S. magazine the breakdown of the relationship was in fact down to Kris Humphries and his mean behaviour.
It has been claimed that the basketball star not only neglected his new wife, but he made a series of derogatory comments towards and is accused of referring to Kim’s famous sizable derriere as a‘fat ass’
Mean man? Kris Humphries has been accused of belittling Kim Kardashian and it has been alleged he called her 'fat ass'
A source told the magazine: ‘He belittled her in front of people. He'd call her stupid. It was truly sickening.
‘He tried to control Kim by bringing her down...He would say truly terrible things. One time, he said she had no talent and her fame wouldn't last.’
A source close to Humphries told MailOnline: 'The Us Weekly story is completely taken out of context and a manipulation of the media. The show is completely staged; there is nothing real about this reality show.'
'Kris teased Kim a lot, but it was never malicious, and he never resented her. He loved her and still does. Too bad they have to tear someone down to propel their own careers.'
It has also been alleged that Kris is planning to sue Kim for $10million over his role in the upcoming Kim and Kourtney take New York series.
According to Life&Style magazine: ‘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. But Kris is also suing because he’s really worried about how badly he’s going to be portrayed on the series.’
