Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries may have been a PR stunt but, if so, Kris himself wasn’t in on it. In fact, he’d been warned not to rush into the relationship by tying the knot, says a family source.
Ever since Kim announced her decision to divorce Kris after 72 days, there has been a lot of speculation on whether the entire thing hadn’t been just a PR stunt to boost ratings for her show.
Most theories now making the rounds online claim there’s proof to confirm that it was. Even so, Kris’ family is saying, he had no idea about what was going on.
If anything, Kris was with his head up in the clouds and wouldn’t even listen to reason when his loved ones tried to warn him to put off marriage for a while longer, says a family source for Radar Online
News that they would be tying the knot came as a shock and, his family believed, too much too soon into the relationship.
As it turned out, Kris was in love and didn’t want to wait to see if he and Kim could really work as a couple in the long run.
"We expressed concern to him about his relationship with Kim. We were quite surprised that it was as serious as it was with them. But he was just taken away by her, and you can't tell someone in love to open their eyes a little wider. He just saw what he wanted to see,” a Humphries family source says.
Shortly after the wedding, Kris got to see with his own eyes that he’d made a bad choice but, by that time, his family and Kim’s weren’t even on speaking terms.
“It was really hard on Kris that Kim and her family weren't very accepting to his side of the family, or very welcoming to them,” the insider explains for the same celebrity publication.
While the tipster doesn’t rule out the possibility that the marriage was a sham from the start, s/he stresses Kris had nothing to do with it, which can only mean it was orchestrated by Kim, her family and E! producers.
“Kris was very much blind-sided when Kim filed for divorce,” the spy explains.
In all fairness, word online has it Kris learned Kim had filed for divorce in the press.
