Kim Kardashian's divorce from Kris Humphries may end up costing her a lot more than she ever bargained for. The reality TV fixture's estranged husband has rejected a $10 million settlement offer from the "star," RadarOnline first reported.
"After Kim filed for divorce, she offered Kris a $10 million payoff, with the agreement that he would not continue to pursue an annulment to their marriage on the grounds of fraud," a source close to the situation told Radar.

Humphries looks determined to get an annulment from Kardashian, seemingly holding out for a more priceless offer: her pride.
"Kris flatly rejected the offer because it has never been about money for him," the source says. "He wants to be able to marry in a church again, with a clear conscience, when he finds someone special. Kris is deeply religious and he believes that the only way he can do that is if his marriage to Kim is annulled."
Humphries's lawyers claim the Brooklyn Nets player won't proceed with the divorce unless Kardashian admits their 72-day marriage was a fraud. His attorneys say the whole union was a charade for "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," while the socialite says it was for love.
Kardashian's reportedly desperate to finalize her divorce, and has claimed Humphries is "spiteful and vindictive" and blames him for dragging out the process, sources told TMZ.
"I can't speak for anyone else [about why Kris hasn't signed]. It's a process. ... It's happening, hopefully," she awkwardly explained.
"Kris wants to move on with his life just as badly as Kim does - he is constantly getting heckled by NBA players and fans - and he just wants to be able to close this disastrous chapter in his life once and for all. If Kim would just agree to grant him the annulment, they could both move on with their lives," the source told RadarOnline.
While Humphries and Kardashian are still married, the model has been dating rapper Kanye West since April of 2012. Kardashian and West recently announced they would welcome their first child together in July.
As it stands now, though, the couple's child is likely to be born while Kardashian is still married to Humphries. If Humphries and Kardashian can't reach a settlement soon, due to Humphries' basketball schedule, the earliest date for a divorce trial is June.
