Kris Humphries One-Year $8 Million Contract
Humphries married reality TV personality Kim Kardashian on August 20, 2011. On October 31, 2011, it was announced that Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries after 72 days of marriage.
On December 1, 2011, Humphries filed his response to Kardashian’s petition, requesting an annulment on the grounds of fraud or a decree of legal separation rather than Kardashian’s requested divorce.
The one-year pact will return the Kim Kardashian’s soon to be ex-husband to his former team — and will last longer than his marriage.
