Kim Kardashian can breathe again because the judge dissolved her marriage to KrisHumphries in today’s court hearing and we’ve learned Kris walked away with zero. Kim won’t have to worry about being married when she gives birth to Kanye’s baby.
Here’s what sources connected with the case tell TMZ:
– Kris gets NO money from Kim. As we’ve reported … he had previously demanded $7 mil.
– Kris dropped his demand for an annulment based on fraud.
– Each party will pay their own attorney’s fees.
This is not just a settlement. It’s a WIN for Kim and her lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser.
The judge sent 2 different messages — on the one hand saying the status of the marriage was dissolved, but then said it’s over when they sign the official papers. But it seems like she’s officially divorced, especially since the judge said to Kim, “Congratulations on your dissolution.”
“Being a member of the Nets organization surpassed some of my greatest ambitions. It was never about an investment; it was about the NETS and Brooklyn. My job as an owner is over but as a fan it has just begun. I’m a Brooklyn Net forever. It’s been an honor to work with Mikhail Prokhorov, Dmitry Razumov, Christophe Charlier, ONEXIM Sports and Entertainment, Brett Yormark and all the wonderful people involved in making the Nets first class. My sincerest thanks goes to Bruce Ratner, who first introduced the idea of moving the Nets to Brooklyn. A thank you and deepest appreciation goes to the fans. You are the lifeblood of any team.
The Nets have made their mark on the NBA and as they enter a new era, Roc Nation does as well; as we embark on Roc Nation Sports. Our newest endeavor is committed to building the brands of professional athletes as we have done for some of today’s top music artists. For Roc Nation Sports to function at its full potential, NBA rules stipulate that I relinquish my ownership in the Brooklyn Nets. It was a tough decision but as I stated earlier, it’s not about ownership. Congratulations to The Nets on a great season and making the playoffs! I will always be a Brooklyn Net.”
Free NFL Agent Kerry Rhodes is feeling the raft of a jilted ex lover/assistant Russell “Hollywood” Simpson.
According to Simpson, Rhodes’ denial of their relationship isn’t truthful, and the free agent safety asked his ex-boyfriend not to talk about their past.
“He actually text [sic] me like ‘Hey baby, can you just not say anything about all this’ but that’s what I don’t like,” Simpson told Bossip.com. “He’s lying because he’s trying to protect his free agency.”
Simpson went on to tell the web site that he and Rhodes had met at an NFL training camp, and afterward, Rhodes asked him to join the franchise as a personal manager. Two months after joining the Cardinals staff, Simpson claims the two began dating.
“I got to know Kerry and we became very close. I moved in with Kerry at his home in Arizona. At first we were just friends and we were getting to know eachother. Then we got into a relationship. We were in a relationship for a whole year. I was there, people knew who I was, they saw me as his top assistant. I handled everything for him. No one went to Kerry for anything.”
“They said ‘Well maybe [Rhodes] loved him like a little brother.’ Listen, if he loved me like a little brother, he f#cked me like a wife! and that’s just me being real with you. People knew something was up but they didn’t know. It was just not normal for a guy to be like we were. You can see in the picture. A picture says a lot of things. You could see in the pictures that it was something there. The first set of pictures, I don’t know how they got out because I did not put them out. If you go on my Facebook page you will see the same pictures but I always crop him out because it was nobody’s business. Now what pissed me off about the whole situation is when he and I stopped talking and the pics got out. He said that he was NOT gay. To me he shouldn’t have said sh#t. If you’re not going to tell the truth, don’t try to make me look stupid. This is what I say: You can play Nintendo, You play XBox, You play lottery, You Don’t Play Hollywood! I think he made a comment that he’s as straight as an arm. An arm has an elbow dummy! What really set me off is when he had Alton the assistant call TMZ, saying he was me and to say Kerry and I are just friends, he’s like my brother.”
“We went on a lot of trips, out of the country, Hawaii, whatever… He loved me so much that he did spend a lot of money. He definitely took care of me. Kerry did do a lot for me. He bought me a lot of things. He bought me the new Infiniti truck. I’m the type of person, if you buy me something, you’re putting it in MY name. If you’re buying me something you’re paying it off. He definitely did the TWO things. You’re not going to buy me nothing and it still be in your name because then it’s your car. You’re not going to buy me nothing and leave me with the payments. I don’t think so!”
“I just want girls to know my sh#t is for real! This sh#t happened! You can think that you got a boyfriend and all that sh#t but THIS sh#t is for real! It happened. I think that a lot of girls are lost because they play football. That don’t mean nothing. You’d be better getting yourself a boy cheerleader… This is how I work. I don’t date boys with girlfriends and I don’t date men with kids. I’m selfish. I’m not the type to go with the downlow brothers. Either you’re down with me or you ain’t. Kerry was NOT messing with girls when he was with me. He was with me every single day, all day long. I have pictures. I have text messages… You can sit around and think your boyfriend ain’t doing nothing. He probably ain’t doing nothing with another girl because he’s probably with a boy.”
Kerry should of made him sign a confidentiality agreement
