TMZ has a different take on it...
UPDATE: TMZ has a different take on the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries story. They claim that Kardashian has refused to pay Kris Humphries anything and wants him to cover all of her attorney fees.
Humphries allegedly demanded $7 million to leave the marriage but Kardashian refused. They deny recent reports, including the one below, that she offered him money to settle. Kardashian believes that Humphries made money by marrying her and so she doesn't owe him anything.
She also thinks that he has dragged on the proceedings for too long and cost her a lot of money in legal fees and other expenses. The fees are said to be around $250,000 and Humphries has also spent around that amount.
Kardashian is happy for the case to go to trial because she thinks she'll win.
Original: Radar Online reports that Kim Kardashian offered Kris Humphries $10 million to settle their divorce but he turned her down.
A source said: "After Kim filed for divorce, she offered Kris a $10 million payoff, with the agreement that he would not continue to pursue an annulment to their marriage on the grounds of fraud. Kris flatly rejected the offer because it has never been about money for him. He wants to be able to marry in a church again, with a clear conscience, when he finds someone special. Kris is deeply religious and he believes that the only way he can do that is if his marriage to Kim is annulled. Kris wants to move on with his life just as badly as Kim does – he is constantly getting heckled by NBA players and fans – and he just wants to be able to close this disastrous chapter in his life once and for all. If Kim would just agree to grant him the annulment, they could both move on with their lives."
The earliest their divorce trial will begin is the middle of June because of Humphries' basketball schedule. Kardashian will likely still be married to Humphries when she gives birth to her baby with Kanye West in early July.
It was previously rumored that Humphries demanded a $10 million payment to get the divorce, but another source said it wasn't true.
The source added: "That absolutely never happened. Kris has given a sworn declaration that he has never asked Kim for a single dime. The only thing he has asked for, and continues to ask for, is for her to agree to an annulment."
