Kris Humphries has just put his soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian on notice that he wants a full accounting of money earned during their 72-day marriage, and accuses the E! reality star of breaching fiduciary duty, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
Kardashian and Humphries were married in an extravagant on camera wedding at a mansion in Montecito, California last summer. The subsequent wedding special on E! was a ratings blockbuster, but there was trouble immediately between the newlyweds and Kardashian filed for divorce after only 72 days of marriage.
According to court docs filed by Humphries: “A husband and wife are subject to the general rules governing fiduciary relationships which control the actions of persons occupying confidential relations to each other. This confidential relationship imposes a duty of the highest good faith and fair dealing on each spouse, and neither will take unfair advantage of each other.”
The documents accuse Kardashian of breaching the fiduciary duty, because, a source tells RadarOnline.com, “Kris feels that Kim hasn’t given an honest and accurate accounting of money they made while they were married. Kris has complied with turning over his bank records, credit card statements, but Kim hasn’t, and she has been stalling. Kris didn’t want to take her to court over this, but he isn’t playing Mr. Nice Guy anymore.”
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Humphries has laid down the gauntlet to Kardashian, vowing he won’t be bullied by her anymore and has instructed his attorney to stop settlement talks in their ongoing bitter divorce battle.
“Kris is furious about reports that he is making Kim’s life hell. It’s absolutely ridiculous, and he is telling his friends that he won’t be bullied by her anymore,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. “Kris has told his lawyer to no longer attempt to reach a settlement with Kim. It’s a waste of time and he is ready to take this to trial, and he will. This was the last straw for Kris because Kim is attempting to drag his family into this drama and that crosses the line. Kris just wants the truth to come out and that is what the courts are for. A judge can decide if the marriage should be annulled on grounds of fraud. What is Kim so afraid of and why is she fighting their divorce going to trial? Kris’ name has been trashed in the press by Kim’s camp for a very long time, and he has the right to fight back but he isn’t doing it the way she is, and he will have his day in court.”
