The Duke Of Divorce Weighs In On Kim Kardashian!

Very, very inneresting!

Pretty much everyone has an opinion on Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, and the media scrutiny now surrounding their divorce, including lawyer Raoul Felder, otherwise known as the Duke of Divorce, who has represented such high-profile clients as Martin Scorsese, David Gest, and Rudy Giuliani!

Check out some of his insight (below):

On why she filed for divorce and not an annulment:

An annulment is based on fraud… it requires corroboration, witnesses to back it up. The average person with a 60-day marriage would be talking with their lawyer about an annulment. But there is a lot of exposure involved in it and I just don't think they want that. I think in this case it would hurt them; it's easier to get divorced.

What will happen to her engagement ring:

An engagement ring is a gift of contemplation, a contemplation of marriage. If the marriage takes place it a completed gift. If it doesn't take place, the prospective husband has an argument to get the ring back. But this marriage took place. I think there is also a question of who bought the ring? She's not wearing it now, I saw in a photograph. For all we know maybe this whole thing was for show.

If sponsors and vendors from the wedding can rightfully sue:

Presumably, when [Kim and Kris] got married they made a commitment that it was going to be forever. Well forever was two months. If the [sponsors] came to me I would investigate it. I would think they have a shot at a lawsuit. I would find out what their real intentions were, whether he intended to be married forever, when she made the airplane reservations to go to Australia, all kinds of questions like that. I’m sure that most of the people [who gave] products, anyone from jewelers to wedding gowns, to whatever, [thought it would be] very good exposure. Now it’s part of a joke, a national joke.

If it was $50 you write it off–I don't mean grandma giving a soup terrine. They gave expensive gifts. I think some of the stuff they received was in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. These are people that are giving for commercial reasons, I think. [I would need to] get a deposition to figure out what the true story is.

If Kim can successfully ban Kris from requesting spousal support:

Spousal support was probably worked out in the prenuptial agreement. I would be shocked if it wasn't…It's not his fault he's unemployed. It's because of the strike that he's unemployed. If he's any kind of earner he may not get spousal support, because when he's working he's really making money and self supporting. The 800-pound gorilla in the room is that they were only married two months for all intents and purposes. What kind of spousal support can you get for two months' marriage? It's a long date, that's all it is. A 2-month date.

How the profits of the wedding will be divided:

That could be shared. If that's not covered in the prenuptial agreement, that's joint money they made. That would probably be something that would be divided. Or returned. Most people who have class return a lot of stuff.

Well, unfortunately, we already know that the profits of the wedding pretty much went to Kim, as through their prenuptial agreement, so there you go!

But we think that pretty much only further gives credit to his assertion the entire debacle is a "joke, a national joke!"

Congratulations, gurl! Is this the kind of press you were looking for?

    congratulations indeed! good one Perez! ha! wow. talk about making yourself a prime target….haters gonna be lovin' this!



  2. 2

    Who is going to want to be in a serious relationship with Kim after this public shame, now every guy in the world know what kind of a diva she is. I think that after this she will be alone for the rest of her life!



  3. 3

    im surprised shes not trying to GET spousal support…or take whatevers his.. greedy litiny pithiny lust



  4. 4

    Ummmm, this wedding just reaffirmed what everyone already knew. "Hi my name is Kim, I like shopping, getting banged by every guy I meet, making money, getting married to make more money, going shopping again, did I mention I like to make money, my mom pimps me out like I was a goddamn whore but its okay, because she claims its only because she loves me, she must right?" And this poor Kris fellow, what a damn shame. He is ruined because she is a FUCKING GREEDY SLUT!



  5. 5

    She is nothing more than an uneducated, classless, worthless, money-hungry fame whore. What a pathetic mockery of marriage and its true meaningful purpose. Her scripted response that publicists make her say is, "I have to follow my heart." By this, do you mean, "I have to follow my pocketbook"?



  6. 6

    Its one thing been a Skank its another thing been a scammer. Looks like the end of the KKK scammers. Now go and join Paris Hilton so we dont hear from you again.



  7. 7

    Oh Perez nice posting. Thank you



  8. 8

    Kim Kardashian makes me SICK!!! What a fake ass money whore!!!!!!!!!! I hope this will bite her big fat ass out of celebrity life! BARFFF



  9. 9

    Kim is a pathological liar and I am starting to believe that her mother is too. Just maybe this scam of a wedding will result in it being the end of Kim K. Let's hope so anyways. I think that she has lost most of the respect of her fans. She stepped over the line with this fiasco and it's about time she faces the music. Last year even her entire family called her a liar. Now that is pretty sad.



  10. 10

    my 2 daughters are lawyers..1 is divorce lawyer who says if you annul marriage the ring 100% needs to be returned and @ 2million$ thats quite a return..[tho kris jenner said on tv it,s not worth 2 million..where did anyone get that idea..lol..real grifters the krapdashians are…



  11. 11

    What's the one word that stands out in Felder's statement - CLASS - most people would return the gifts but that pertains to people who really marry for love and commitment not for a tv show and money - Let's face it, ask yourself, if you did this, could you live with your extended family and friends who now resent that you took and kept gifts after only 2 months of marriage? especially when you have more money than God but then again this family has shown time and time again that they have no shame, it's me me me, Where's the charity, compassion and caring for fellow human beings - Never hear press about this and don't tell me they do it privately - Nothing is private, if they gave and gave big it would be plastered over all the news media. Again notice Humphries camp is not talking but the Kardashians and their PR are round the clock.



  12. 12

    I love how he said: Most people who have class return a lot of stuff.



  13. 13

    "Most people who have class…." Well this family has zero class, so I guess greedy Kimmy will be keeping all the gifts. And actually, I though it was scandalous that they even asked for gifs, given the family's income last year. If they had class, they would have asked guests to make a donation to charity in their name, instead of buying a gift for a couple that has everything they need or can buy it for themselves.



  14. 14

    After all this i'd say i like Paris Hilton A LOT comparing to this uberattentionwhore



  15. 15

    Give back the RING you fat ass money whore Kim KarTRASHian…the RING was Given to you as a promise for marraige….you are nothing but a whore and now the entire world hates YOU!



  16. 16

    Just asking.. What will happen if Kris file for annulment. Now knowing that she was not in love with him before she got marry to him. Can he do that?



  17. 17

    Re: tracker
    Ask your daughter can Kris file for annulment, now that he knows that the wedding was a fraud. She been saying that she was not really in love with him.



  18. 18

    I'm so glad YOU took off you blinders when it came to this family! About dam time! Anywho… I'm sure kim is smiling behind closed doors, she already got caught being fake right before her interview in Australia, she was fine, she didn't realize the cameras were recording, right when they went "live", she turned on the gloom, poor me pity face. You should see the comments/pics on her blog, quite entertaining! lol

    Whatever happened to…"for richer or poorer"? Oh wait…wedding vows aren't takin serious by gold diggin whores! I mean let's be honest about the situation…just cause of the whole NBA situation…she isn't willing to wait for Kris to get a job?! And let's not forget how she became famous…and young girls idolize this? What is this world coming to???



  20. 20

    SHE IS COMPLETE AND UTTER TRASH!!!!!!!!!



  21. 21

    It still floors me she isn't giving any of the wedding gifts back and instead making "donations" to charities. What a joke indeed, that whole family. I feel so bad for Kris getting caught up in her arrogance.



  22. 22

    Congrautlations to Kris for keeping quiet.
    On the other hand the loud mouth Armenian Grifter Gypsies are disgusting.
    Run for your life Kris, and hang on to your wallet!!!



  23. 23

    Couldn't Chris "counter sue" for an annulment instead, since KK DID COMMIT fraud? Her actions speak loud and clear for her motives. Why didn't Chris know about the divorce?

    If the wedding was indeed sincere, I'm pretty sure neither of them thinks of it as a 'joke.'
    Calling it a joke is only his opinion, and colors the case and might stir up thoughts of litigation from various sponsors. Did you say he's a lawyer? Yeah.



  25. 25

    The only press who hasn't covered this pile of bullshit is the obituary page. We're waiting. . . .



  26. 26

    The best revenge for anyone is to not buy any of the kardashian shit — have you seen the "purses" from Sears? The look like used condoms and smell even worse. You can bet the Kardashian Kunts wouldn't be caught dead toting that trash.



  27. 27

    Just enjoy your last seconds of "fame"… it will be over SOON!!



  28. 28

    Re: mad_la – I know lol…he definitely took some not so subtle digs at her…while still sounding intelligent. Interesting to hear his take on it…and to understand that the sponsors could actually sue her! I didn't think of that…I'd kinda like to see that happen, haha.

    Also, I actually appreciate, Perez, that you are calling it like it is with them.



  29. 29

    DO NOT WATCH THE KARDASHIAN'S OR BUY ANYTHING WITH THE KARDASHIAN NAME ON IT. SICK OF THIS GREEDY FAMILY.



  30. 30

    Have you lookd up lawyer in the Bible? Do a search on it. Even God hates lawyers. It may be the law, but it doesn't make it right. It doesn't make it moral. 94% of the people (accord to a People Magazine article) think Kim K should give back the ring. 94% of the people think its scum bag, low life to keep the ring. She and her family are bringing their reputation down even further by keeping the ring. Its running their business and running their life. Its a business decision if not a moral ethical decision. Dont be so greedy you shoot yourself in the foot. Dumb butts. You call Kris H dump. You are the stupidest of them all.

    Re: RubyRose – ruining not running…



  32. 32

    There is no such thing as bad publicity.



  33. 33

    She's not giving back the ring because she bought it herself! The wedding presents are a different story though. How on earth do you justify taking other people's money and donating it to charity without their consent? Ridiculous. …and suspicious. Why? Did she already have her minions return/exchange/use everything and can't send them back to the givers at this point?
