(LOS ANGELES) — It’s perhaps a surprise to no one, but sworn testimony in the Kris Humphries/Kim Kardashian divorce case from a Keeping Up with the Kardashians producer indicates several scenes of the reality show were faked.
While some producers of “unscripted” shows occasionally re-do scenes for various reasons, Life & Style magazine reports a deposition reveals major sequences — including Humphries’ proposal to Kardashian, and her “crying” about a rough spot in their 72-day marriage — were as phony as Kardashian’s eyelashes are.
As part of his fraud lawsuit against Kardashian, lawyers for Humphries took a deposition from Keeping Up producer Russell Jay last month, and he reportedly admitted Kardashian didn’t expect the NBA star to pop the question to her, and as such, she didn’t like her impromptu reaction.
She allegedly requested another take, saying, “Can we just like, have me come back in one more time and be, like, really surprised?”
Jay also stated in the deposition that a tear-filled heart-to-heart between Kardashian and her mom, Kris Jenner, about the difficulty of the new marriage was actually shot after she filed for divorce in 2011, and the tears may have been prompted by a chemical irritant tool called a “tear stick.”
The magazine quotes a “pal” of the NBA star as saying, “Kris feels vindicated…This will prove how fake Kim and the show are.”
Kardashian, now pregnant with Kanye West’s baby, is expected to provide sworn testimony in a deposition in the case in two weeks.
