Kris Humphries is determined to prove his marriage to Kim Kardashian was a fraud, and testimony from one "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" producer may be just what he needs.
Life & Style reports that during producer Russell Jay's deposition last month, he admitted that at least two scenes depicting Humphries were scripted, reshot or edited.
According to Jay's deposition, Kardashian not only knew about Humphries' "surprise" proposal before it actually happened, but it was reshot because the reality star didn't like her reaction the first time around. It's common practice for reality shows to re-shoot certain scenes, and the fact that Kim knew she was going to be proposed to isn't surprising.
Reports that the proposal was staged go as far back as January, when sources told RadarOnline that producers and Kardashian nixed Humphries' initial plan to propose to her in Minnesota.
"Kim told Kris how, where and when to propose, it was absolutely no surprise to her whatsoever," an insider previously told the website. "First of all, Kris proposed in the middle of the day, and he had to do that because it would create better lighting to capture the moment. Kim looked so surprised but she knew it was happening. She was in full hair and make-up, as she always is on the show. Kris wanted it to be very intimate and romantic, but all of his ideas were shot down by production officials and Kim."
Life & Style also reports that Jay's deposition revealed that a scene where Kardashian confessed to her mother, Kris Jenner, that she was having regrets about her marriage was actually shot after the 32-year-old filed for divorce on Oct. 31, 2011.
Like the reports about the proposal, Reality Tea previously claimed that the scene between Kim and her mother had actually been shot on a sound stage in Los Angeles, not on their trip to Dubai as it appeared on the show -- and was added in afterward to make Kim appear more sympathetic.
Previously it was believed that Humphries had little chance at proving his marriage to Kardashian was a fraud, and even parted ways with one of his divorce lawyers who though it would be impossible to prove.
Only time will tell if evidence of staged scenes and reshoots will help Humphries' case, and the former couple is due in court on May 6.
