LOS ANGELES – NBA player Kris Humphries asked a judge Thursday to annul his 10-week, highly publicized marriage to Kim Kardashian on the basis that it was fraudulent. The filing comes roughly a month after Kardashian filed for divorce and apologized to fans.

Humphries’ petition did not offer any details to support his contention that the marriage was a fraud, which a judge would have to determine is true for the marriage to be completely nullified.

The couple signed a prenuptial agreement before marrying Aug. 20 at an estate in California. Kardashian’s sisters and TV co-stars Kourtney Kardashian, 32, and Khloe Kardashian, 27, served as co-maids of honor.

Kim Kardashian and Humphries began dating late last year and announced their engagement in May. He proposed on bended knee with a 20.5-carat ring by spelling out “Will you marry me?” in rose petals.

Kardashian filed for divorce Oct. 31, citing irreconcilable differences. The actress-model is the star of the E! Entertainment Television series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” and her marriage to Humphries was turned into a highly touted televised special.

Humphries is a free agent NBA forward who played last season for the New Jersey Nets. He is requesting that if an annulment isn’t granted, the couple be deemed legally separated.

Humphries’ marriage to Kardashian is his first; she was previously married to a music producer for four years.

Walsh returns to airwaves on Lifetime

NEW YORK – John Walsh is rallying America against the nation’s bad guys again.

“America’s Most Wanted,” a Fox Broadcasting mainstay for 23 years before that network canceled it last spring, returns to weekly television at a new address: Lifetime, where it premieres today at 9 p.m. EST.

“It will be basically the same show,” said Walsh, whose criminal roundup has led to the capture of more than 1,100 fugitives in the United States and 30 countries, plus the rescue of 61 children and missing persons.

Walsh says there will be no softening of the show’s gritty, tough-guy tone in its new home, despite Lifetime being chiefly a channel aimed at women.

“It will still be tough enough for people sitting in their living rooms to say, ‘My God, that happened to a real person, that’s not a scripted drama,”‘ he said, “and then get off their couch and go to their phone if they recognize the fugitive, and do the right thing.”
