Kris Humphries is considering suing Kim Kardashian and her family for $10m (€7.5m).
The basketball star – whose socialite wife announced at the end of last month that she was filing for divorce after just 72 days of marriage - has reportedly met with lawyers because he feels he should be paid more for his contribution to reality TV show 'Kourtney & Kim Take New York' and is also concerned about the way he will be portrayed on the programme,
A source told the new issue of Life & Style magazine: "Kris has a legal team investigating his options. He's claiming his role on 'Kourtney & Kim Take New York' is bigger than he was told, and that's why he wants more money. But Kris is also suing because he's really worried about how badly he's going to be portrayed on the series."
Kris is said to be particularly concerned about footage of him allegedly "bullying" Kim's best friend Jonathan Cheban with a string of homophobic comments.
A source told Life & Style magazine: "Midway through the season, Kris starts bullying Kim's best friend, Jonathan Cheban, about his sexuality. Jonathan isn't gay, but Kris accuses him of being gay and criticizes him for it in a really homophobic way. Jonathan is really upset."
Kris has now hired lawyer Lee Hutton III who has been tasked with trying to prevent the most shocking moments from being included in the programme as the sportsman insists he was "set up" because his scenes were scripted.
His father William Humphries said: "Little did Kris know that he was being set up. Kris got used - 100% used."
