Only Kris Humphries – and PETA – can paint Kim Kardashian in a positive light…

According to an E! News insider, a divorce settlement is yet to be signed between this briefly-married pair because the bruising NBA power forward is hoping to holdout for a payday beyond the offer on the table.

“Kris is dragging it out,” claims this Kardashian source. “Kim is ready to move on, but Kris is hoping that stretching it out will get him even more money.”

As has been previously reported, this mole says Humphries wants to bank $ 7 million from the split… or $ 1 million less than his one-year contract with the New Jersey Nets. In exchange, reports have said he’ll keep silent about supposedly damaging facts related to the failed union.

But “Kim never considered signing something like that,” this insider says. “Kris can’t take the time to consider [her] offer, but he finds time to do an interview with a tabloid magazine.”

Ohhh, zing! It’s important to keep this source in mind, too, of course. It’s E! Online. Which pretty much views Kim Kardashian and her family as its personal ATM.

Seriously, Kris, Kim and those at E! who promote these people make the Nets look like winners.

Katy Perry’s parents are conservative Christian ministers, so you would assume they would be devastated by her divorce. If so, they’re definitely not showing it.

It’s been reported that Russell Brand filed for divorce in large part so Katy, who was raised in a devout Christian household, wouldn’t have to do so.

God works in mysterious ways, though, and in the eyes of Katy’s parents, her recent split from Russell is one of those ways. Say what now?

Because He used to the divorce to fill the rafters of their church, they say.

Katy Perry, Father Keith Hudson

Pastors Keith and Mary Hudson preached at Church On The Rise in Westlake, Ohio, on Wednesday, in an appearance advertised by the church.

Perry’s mom, Mary, speaking for the first time about the split, half-joked, “I’m sure Katy is trending on the internet just to get you to church tonight.”

“All over the world, who knows how God is bringing them in? The most important thing is you are here and God wants to put the fire in you in 2012.”

It is a solid glass-half-full attitude if nothing else.

Perry’s dad Keith added, “What has taken place in my daughter’s life has opened many opportunities to go in and be with guarded and gated people.”

“God has given us a new platform to go in and meet people – and they like us because you know what, we are cool. We are not threatening.”

They do actually sound pretty cool.

SIDE NOTE / FUN FACT: Katheryn Elizbaeth Hudson uses her mom’s maiden name, Perry, because she felt Katy Hudson would be confused with Kate Hudson.

According to reports, a video was shown beforehand featuring the Hudsons with Katy. The Hudsons are scheduled to appear tomorrow at a church in Georgia. This video (below) is posted on the church’s site promoting the appearance:

Vanessa Bryant to Receive at Least Million in Divorce From Kobe
Celebrity News


Vanessa Bryant is positioned to make out like a bandit in her divorce from Kobe Bryant, in large part due to the couple’s apparent lack of a prenuptial agreement.

Coupled with 10 years of marriage, her settlement should be upwards of $ 75 million – half the L.A. Lakers guard’s fortune – along with support for their daughters.

Vanessa Bryant’s mom told the Los Angeles Times that the couple did not sign a prenuptial agreement when they wed – entitling Vanessa to half of their assets.

Vanessa and Kobe Bryant

Estimates put Kobe Bryant’s net worth at $ 150 million. The NBA’s highest-paid player, he earned $ 24.8 million last season, part of an extension worth $ 83.5 million.

Forbes magazine estimates that with endorsement deals, Kobe last year earned $ 53 million before taxes and agent fees. So basically, Vanessa is sitting pretty.

The fact the marriage lasted 10 years also gives Vanessa big advantages under California law, as she is allowed to maintain her standard of living after the split.

In the petition filed Friday, Vanessa cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce. The couple says the terms have already been settled privately.

The NBA star was caught cheating with multiple women by his wife, according to sources, with good old-fashioned gossip among basketball spouses to blame.

His latest mistress is rumored to be Jessica Burciaga, but that has not been confirmed.

The lesson in all of this? Get a prenup and/or don’t cheat on your wife all the time.

Rodney Atkins Divorce Details: All About Safety

Rodney Atkins Divorce Details: All About Safety
Celebrity News

We have an update on the ugly Rodney Atkins situation.

As previously reported, the country singer was arrested last month on a charge of domestic violence that included trying to smother his wife with a pillow, an allegation Atkins denies. Now, TMZ has obtained the divorce documents between Rodney and Tammy Atkins and they at least prove the couple can agree on something.

Both sides acknowledge they are “unable to live together successfully as husband and wife,” while each says the other is “guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper.”

Tammy is asking for sole custody of the pair’s 10-year old son (who she also says witnessed his dad’s attack), along with alimony and child support payments.

The judge has agreed on a restraining order for the time being, barring Rodney and Tammy from “harassing, threatening, assaulting or abusing the other party.” That seems like a start.
