When you talk about Kim Kardashian’s disastrous marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries, there are a few incidents that possibly led to their divorce, and the latest one apparently involves an unnamed Malaysian businessman!
According to British tabloid Daily Mail, the “wealthy Malaysian businessman” reportedly gifted the pair, who got hitched in August 2011, a white Ferrari worth a cool RM1mil as a wedding gift, and as their 72-day marriage head towards the divorce courts, Kris wants to know what the 31-year-old socialite did with the sports car.
The buzz over the gift has been spreading like wildfire on the Internet since late April when Kim hit the headlines for head-scratchingly donating RM700,000 – twice the value of her wedding gifts – to the Dream Foundation, but she left out the value of the Ferrari when she tallied up the value of their wedding gifts.
Now, 27-year-old Kris wants his wife to “tell the truth” about the gift and his lawyers intend to question Kim under oath at a divorce trial – Kris apparently wanted a trial instead of an ‘out-of-court settlement – as to why she did not include the value of the car. According to a source, Kris has no intention of asking for the car or in any way “interested in the money”, but he only wanted to know the truth.
Camp Kardashian, however, brushed off Kris’ allegations, stating that Kim bought the Ferrari herself. And according to a source close to the couple, they are desperate to avoid a divorce trial.
The source told a gossip website: “Kris' attorneys also plan on calling the Malaysian gift giver as a witness because Kim has denied that they received the US$325k gift and said instead that he gave them a vase valued at around US$200.
“The man is a billionaire, there is no way he would have given them a vase and Kris has proof that the businessman gave them the over the top gift.”
According to another source, the only way Kim can avoid a divorce trial is if she apologises to Kris and admits that she only married him for television ratings – in public! It’s going to be messy; we can feel it in our bones.

Most of us pay our bills with checks or credit cards, but some people still prefer cash…even if all they have is small denominations. This past month, for example, a couple in Florida decided to pay their $11,000 property tax in $1 bills. It took six county employees over an hour to count the money, and then stuff it into three bags to take to the bank. The couple said they were trying to make a statement that taxes were too high. But a California man had a very different reason for paying his property taxes in cash: he had fallen on hard times financially and asked friends and family members to donate spare change to help him out. As a result, this past January, he was able to pay his $14,000 property tax bill in coins and small bills, which he transported by wheelbarrow.Unusual cash payments aren’t limited to taxes. In 2012, a Massachusetts man made the final mortgage payment on his house using pennies that he had been saving since he bought the house in the 1970s. He gave the bank a heads up before dropping off metal boxes containing around 62,000 rolled up pennies, weighing more than 800 pounds. But a Utah man was not nearly as courteous in 2011 when he paid a $25 medical bill using 2,500 pennies. Upset about the bill, the man dumped the pennies on the receptionist’s desk, startling staff and patients by the loud sound. A judge later ruled the action constituted disorderly conduct and issued a $140 fine. And if the judge were smart, he’d specify payment for the fine be made by check.
