London: Kris Humphries`s family has finally broken their silence about his marriage to Kim Kardashian, saying that the reality star used the Basketball ace to boost her career.

The family has warned Kardashian that Humphries is out for revenge in his fight to quash their sham wedding, the Sun reported.

Relatives of the 28-year-old, who have kept a dignified silence since the 32-year-old dumped the Brooklyn Nets star in October 2011, said that he is determined to get an annulment, instead of just a divorce, because the wedding was a cynical trick to boost ratings of Kardashian`s reality show ` Keeping Up With The Kardashians `.

The marriage of the pair, which lasted only for 72-days, will be blown apart when the Hollywood divorce trial kicks off in May with claims that Humphries was Duped by the reality star.

Humphries`s aunt Dedria said that it was a sham as according to her, a married couple is suppose to give it more than 72 days unless there`s serious abuse.

According to reports, if the marriage is annulled, Humphries could argue that the pre-nuptial agreement was not legitimate and he would be freed from the confidentiality clause which prevents him from publicly shaming his former wife.
