Kris Humphries Reportedly the Victim of an Investment Scam


“Kim Kardashian’s husband”, as TMZ helpfully identies him, was reportedly taken for hundreds of thousands of bucks by a guy who attended his wedding. Not cool, bro: “Andrey C. Hicks was a guest at Kim and Kris Humphries televised wedding bonanza in August and sat right behind the happy couple during the rehearsal dinner. But TMZ has learned after the wedding, Kris learned Andrey was a target in a federal investigation in which he’s suspected of raising money for a purported billion dollar hedge fund that didn’t really exist … Officials claim [the] 27-year-old Hicks stole $1.7 million from various investors and sources close to Kris tell us the NBA star accounted for hundreds of thousands of dollars himself. Hicks was arrested in Canada on Friday and charged with wire fraud. Officials believe he was trying to flee to Switzerland. If convicted, Hicks could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.”

    This is the same moron who spent his whole season salary on an engagement ring to a women he knew for like 3 months who has dated what 6 famous people? Pretty clear this guy is an idiot.

    Plenty of business savvy people have gotten taken by the scam artist hedge fund “managers.” I think it all boils down to your greed allowing you to believe in something that is too good to be true. Kris is still an idiot tho for trying to turn that hoe into a housewife.

  • irondan21

    Where did he get that much money in the first place? Does Kim give him an allowance or something?

  • Chukaz

    Let’s be honest this guy’s real easy to take advantage of. I bet u kim didn’t have to sign a prenup but he did

  • Fat Lever

    Is that what they’re calling marriage in Hollywood now?

  • http://cnbc.com JTaylor21

    Okay, so a guy steals millions of dollars from unsuspecting victims and is looking at 20yrs meanwhile people are getting 30yrs to Life for drug offenses? The real scam is the so-called “justice” system.

  • BAWSE

    The people getting 30 yrs or Life probably dont look like the guy who scammed millions. Bad week for Kris. I hope he rebounds.

    Divorce, eh? So sad. Sextape publishing botox faces don’t make wifey material?
    Still working on how to best formulate the following to my Kardashian obsessed fiancé without cackling like a wicked witch.
    ‘Sooo, honey?
    Can i finally CANCEL the E! Channel?’

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com albie1kenobi

    @Darksaber: do your thing. E! is tabloid in motion.
    Kris and Kim were both in this “marriage” together for publicity and money. my wife comments that the marriage/divorce is more embarrassing than her tape with Ray J, because at least there’s use for the tape and the wedding has no use. i’m not even sure how to take that comment.

  • http://www.slamonline.com UNFROZEN CAVEMAN LAWYER

    DARK, YOU KNOW DAMN WELL THERE WILL BE TONS OF COVERAGE ON THIS, AND SHE WANTS TO WATCH EVERY SECOND.

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    AH, my Caps lock inclined friend, the difference being this time, I’LL BE IN HER EAR LAUGHING MY BUTT OFF AT HER FASCINATION WITH SUCH A SHAM!

  • Rik Smits Mullet

    If it wasnt for the wedding. nobody except for nets fans knew who kris humpries was.
    If it wasnt for the sextape with ray j nobody would know kim karadashian.

    at least humpries has some talent.

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    @albie1kenobi: i think that’s one of those moments when you just nod and keep your opinion to yourself in front of the wife.
    Great comment by her though.

  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com albie1kenobi

    @Dark: word. what does your girl think of that tape in relation to her bigger body of work on the esteemed channel of E!?

  • http://theurbangriot.com The Nupe

    I don’t understand why ANYBODY would think this is funny. Some people have lost their life savings etc. in these kinds of scams. I’m assuming Humphries has enough other investments that this isn’t a ‘total loss’ for him. But regardless, I don’t see anything even the slightest bit funny/amusing about getting scamed out of your earned money.

  • ManOfMystery

    This post is Hilarious.

    LMAO @ irondan21, I was thinking the same thing, maybe he is not as dumb as he looks because it’s not like he been great money from hoops. last season was his only experience getting significant playing time.
