It’s no secret that things between Kris Humphries and the Kardashian family are strained, but now there are reports that the famous showbiz family is taking aim at Kim’s ex-husband with tabloid rumors.
According to FOX 411, inside sources have claimed that the Kardashians have “carefully disseminated” false stories about Humphries in an attempt to discredit him.
Author Cooper Lawrence told FOX, “Those pretty faces could be the face of evil if you are on the wrong side of them. They have said they will do anything to preserve their image, including blocking Kris from making money, so I'm not surprised they would start rumors about him. They have an empire to protect and it's pretty clear that nothing will get in their way.”
Dorothy Cascerceri of InTouch Weekly added, “The Kardashians are a brand powerhouse, and the name 'Kardashian' is the driving force behind the brand. So you better bet these ladies will be do anything to prevent their name from being tarnished, and if that means making sure Kris Humphries is history by dragging him through the mud, then that is exactly what they will do. The Kardashian name and image is everything to them, and they are not going to let an ex-husband destroy that. The Kardashian family seems determined to come out of this mess on top.”
So far, Humphries has been accused of being everything from abusive to lazy, and there are even rumors that he’s gay.
A rep for the Kardashians vehemently denies any wrongdoing by the family and calls the allegations “ridiculous and not true.”
