Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries Rare Couple Using a Prenup

A teammate of Kris Humphries on the New Jersey Nets introduced Humphries to Kim Kardashian one day in New York last December. The two hit it off, began dating and announced their engagement in June. Unlike many celebrity couples, however, Humphries and Kardashian will have a prenuptial agreement in place before they walk down the aisle.

Kardashian has worked as a model and actress and broke into the spotlight in 2007 when E!’s TV show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” debuted. Humphries began his career with the Utah Jazz in 2004 after the club selected him as the 14th overall draft pick that year. A New Jersey Net since 2009, Humphries has also played for the Toronto Raptors and the Dallas Mavericks. He proposed to Kardashian by spelling out “Will you marry me?” in rose petals on her bedroom floor and reportedly gave her a 20.5-carat diamond ring worth $2 million.

With substantial assets and income coming in from their different careers, both Humphries and Kardashian decided to put together a prenuptial agreement in the event that their marriage does not work out. It is a particularly wise decision for Kardashian, who is worth a reported $35 million versus Humphries’s $8 million. Humphries and Kardashian’s decision is in contrast to other celebrity couples, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver and Ryan Reynolds and Scarlet Johansson, who divorced without a prenup in place.
