Kris Humphries Reportedly the Victim of an Investment Scam

by October 31, 2011

“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.”
