We didn’t fully realize until today just how angry Kris Humphries was about whole Kim Kardashian divorce drama. How mad, you ask? Mad enough to turn down $10 million. So yeah, that’s pretty mad. According to RadarOnline, Kim offered the Brooklyn Net a $10 million settlement to end the legal stalemate in their divorce. Yes, $10 million. But Kris turned her down, because he’s not out for money, he’s out for some cold courtroom vengeance.
“After Kim filed for divorce, she offered Kris a $10 million payoff with the agreement that he would not continue to pursue an annulment to their marriage on the grounds of fraud,” and insider told the website. An annulment is basically the marriage-equivalent of a “freebie oops” card (that’s a thing, right?), which voids a marriage in any spiritual or religious capacity. ”He wants to be able to marry in a church again, with a clear conscience, when he finds someone special. Kris is deeply religious and he believes that the only way he can do that is if his marriage to Kim is annulled.”
When you see the above photos of Kanye West wearing a red ski mask yesterday, you wouldn’t be blamed for coming up with a number of theories:
1) He’s finally lost it.
2) It’s as cold in Paris as it’s been here in New York.
3) He’s finally a little bit ashamed of the showy nature of his relationship with baby mama Kim Kardashian.
Is it the end of the road for Kim Kardashian’s reality TV show career? Of course not, “momager” Kris Jenner would never let that happen, but it sounds like Kim’s baby daddy Kanye West is trying hard to make that a reality. Although he’s relatively tolerant of the famous family’s camera-friendly outlook on life, an insider close to the couple tell Hollywood Life that it’s not the life he wants for his child.
“I know deep down, [Kanye] isn’t trying to pimp out his baby like that,” the source says, creating a truly disturbing image in the process. “He and Kim got way more than enough money to take care of 100 kids if they want to have that many. But he know that when it comes to Kim and her family, especially that mother of hers, it’s all business and that show is how they make their money. So he juggling all this [stuff] in his head right now, but he ain’t all hyped about it yet because [the filming] hasn’t gone down yet.”
The friend goes on to remind us that Yeezy is a dude who does his own thing, regardless of what other people might think. ”Kanye is a man who acts on his own! People need to remember that.” This is not exactly news to most of us. Remember the whole Taylor Swift VMAs thing? Or that Katrina telethon? Or…pretty much his entire career?
The People’s Choice Awards are certainly a thing you enjoy in the moment, not an event whose results you discuss in depth the next day — but one item from last night’s show seems to have piqued the curiosity of viewers: the bouncy leather dress Jennifer Aniston wore onstage to accept another Favorite Comedic Actress award. The Christian Dior look was unusually playful for Jen, maybe symbolic of the happy place the engaged actress finds herself in these days.
This is the second time a leather outfit has caught the Internet’s attention after the fact — the first, of course being the black leather Givenchy skirt, or kilt if you want to quibble, that Kanye West wore onstage at the 12.12.12. benefit for Sandy relief last month.
So here’s a question for you, will either of these trends make it past curiosity and into your closet? Vote, and watch Kanye and his stylist discuss his pleats in the video below.
If Kim Kardashian’s baby turns out to be a boy, we are already bracing ourselves for Fresh Prince of Bel Air jokes now that she and Kanye West have reportedly bought an $11 million home in the ritzy neighborhood. According to TMZ, the couple are turning the 10,000 square-foot home into a 14,000 square foot “Italian-style villa,” complete with movie theater, salon, bowling alley, basketball court, and indoor and outdoor pools. With that many recreation options, we hope they don’t opt to stay home too much instead of hitting the town where we can catch site of them and Babye.
After plunking down money for a new home like that, we are still surprised they didn’t take that $3 million deal for baby pics. Must be nice to have enough money to take a moral stand like that! (Unless, of course, they’re still waiting for a better offer.) Anyway, if paying the mortgage gets tough, they could always turn to the latest tactic Khloe is trying out on the eBay site she and Lamar Odom started to raise money for his Catherine’s Kids Foundation. Khloe’s unloading old clothing, including a used sports bra!

From the start, we’ve been skeptical about the pairing of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West — would her reality-TV personality spoil his artsy ambitions? — but today comes a good sign that ‘Ye may actually be a great influence on his girlfriend. According to TMZ, Kardashian — who made mountains of cash selling her wedding to E! and People — and her baby daddy have refused a $3 million deal from an overseas tabloid for the first pics of Babye.
Now, if you still want to be cynical, you could suspect that they’re holding out for an even bigger deal, but TMZ’s sources say they’re not planning to sell the pics at all. That’s right in line with earlier stories that they don’t plan to make the kid a TV star either. Shocking, right? Could it be that Kimye are taking a parenting tip from BFFs Jay-Z and Beyonce, who have done a frustratingly good job at keeping coverage of Blue Ivy to a bare minimum? (BTW, happy birthday, BIC!) Hmmm, something tells us that they won’t go that far — some habits are hard to break.

10 Important Life Lessons We Hope Kimye Passes On To Babye (Kimby? Kanbabe?)
By Melissa Smith
With news of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s bun in the oven, we can’t help but wonder just how powerful their offspring is going to be. Just take the case of Blue Ivy, who reached number 7 on our list of celebs who dominated 2012 … just by being born! When it comes to Kimye’s spawn, the baby might actually be genetically primed for world domination, at least if he/she is anything like Kanye’s mom says he was as an infant.
Before Donda West tragically passed away in 2007, she sat down with VH1 News to talk about raising her son. Apparently there were very early signs of his powerful personality — even indications he’d like to rule the planet!
“I never saw that blank stare in Kanye’s eyes,” she told us. “Some babies come here, and it takes them a little bit longer to focus. It just seems like he came here knowing something, maybe something that I didn’t even know. … I looked into his eyes, and he had those two fingers in his mouth, and it just seemed like he was saying, ‘OK, I’m a few months old now; let me plan how I’m going to take over the world.’ ”
What a weird (wrong) world we live in when the first thing everyone asks about a pregnant celebrity is who will be paying her to lose her baby weight? But when that celebrity is Kim Kardashian, whose very fame relies on people paying her to live her life, we guess it’s not such an odd thing to speculate about. Which is probably why TMZ went straight to diet companies Medifast and Jenny Craig to see if they were considering a deal with Kim. The answer is nope, ’cause neither companies are interested in famous ladies at the moment.
If you were hoping for that “very special” fairytale birthing edition of Keeping Up With The Kardashians you’re about to be really disappointed: Kim K has vowed to keep her baby with Kanye West off of reality television. This comes as surprising news to critics who view the entire Kardashian Klan as exploitive fame whores and attention seekers who will do essentially anything for ratings. Some have questioned the validity and sincerity of her relationship with West, as well as her true motive behind the pregnancy. However, TMZ reports that the couple are insisting on keeping that side of their lives to themselves to ”ensure real privacy” for the unborn child. Either that or it’s a page from rarely seen baby Blue Ivy Carter’s playbook.
Despite this, Kim says that her pregnancy will definitely feature prominently on KUWTK. That’s more like it! Kimye intend to learn the gender of their child as soon as possible, which usually happens around the 16th week. Insiders say that the couple don’t care whether it’s a boy or a girl…but you can be damn sure that it’ll have a “K” name!
Although the family is notoriously close, brother Rob Kardashian sounded something of a sour note in People Magazine recently, criticising the fact that all of his nieces and nephews have so far been out of wedlock. “I’m so proud of my sisters, but I’ll be married before I have a baby,” he told the press while co-hosting a New Years Eve party in Miami. It’s an impressive moral stand from the guy who referred to his ex girlfriend as “Rita Whora.” But it seems like Rob is forgetting one thing: Kim IS married! Just not to Kanye, but Kris Humphries. Details…
