Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries Divorcing?

Truth rating: 3

By Daniel Gates


Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have been the subject of near-constant split rumors ever since marrying, and Star magazine’s been leading the charge.

Earlier this month, the tabloid claimed the union was “in crisis,” alleging that Humphries was partying like he was single and that Kardashian was consulting a divorce attorney. The story was bogus. But Star isn’t finished beating the drum.

For this week’s cover story, the mag insists that the “crumbling” marriage could be nearing “the end,” and uses as the centerpiece of its premise the “new information that Kim may have already visited a divorce lawyer,” according to a supposed eyewitness sighting.

Here’s what actually happened. Star‘s sister company, Radar, had a reporter reach out to a New York lawyer named Rob Wallack, saying they’d heard Kardashian had come to speak with him about a divorce. When Wallack told them it wasn’t his policy to discuss clients or potential clients, they interpreted his non-denial to mean they were somehow on the right track. They were not.

Gossip Cop is told, unequivocally, that Wallack did not meet with Kardashian. The “divorce lawyer” that Star keeps dangling on its cover and in its article has nothing to do with Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. As a point of law, Kardashian couldn’t file for divorce in New York, even if they wanted to because they haven’t established residency in the state.

Still, a source close to the couple again tells Gossip Cop that Kardashian and Humphries are having some issues — the way newlyweds do — but are trying to work them out.
