The divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries has turned into an all-out war, and Star magazine has exclusively learned that Kris is taking aim at the Kardashians by threatening to sue the E! network.
According to a production insider, Kris wants his $28,500 per episode salary doubled to $50,000 and will retaliate by suing the cable network if they don't adhere to his demands.
"Kris is freaking out about his finances, even though the NBA lockout has ended," the insider revealed.
"After all, it's his storyline that is making the show a success this season!"
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Kim maintains a lot of editorial control over Kourtney & Kim Take New York and after filing for divorce, made sure the new season of the hit show would portray her as the "victim" and Kris as the "lazy and insensitive" villain.
Star magazine's insider points to those editorial decisions as Kris' backing for a multi-million dollar lawsuit, citing emotional distress he has suffered because of how poorly the show has made him look.
"He was nothing more than a disposable groom, used for ratings," the source said.
"He feels he deserves some type of compensation."
