He’s being sued by a woman who claims he gave her herpes after they spent the night together two years ago. And Kris Humphries plans on being ‘relentless’ in fighting Kayla Goldberg’s lawsuit and insists he’s ’100 percent sure’ he did not give her any venereal disease.
The NBA star claims that Goldberg’s attorney reached out to his lawyer last winter demanding the Brooklyn Nets player pay her $24 million otherwise she’d go public.
The young woman would reportedly not ‘take anything less than $1 million’ from Humphries, who was in the midst of NBA contract negotiations at the time.
‘[Humphries is] 100 percent sure she did not contract [herpes] from him,’ said his rep, adding that her case is ‘completely bogus.’
The most interesting part of Goldberg’s legal documents are the four other unnamed defendants, whom she claimed might have given her herpes.
Goldberg, suing for sexual battery among other charges, claimed the pair met on August 31 2010 – two months before he met Kardashian – at Los Angeles café The Newsroom and met up later that night at Trousdale nightclub.
The pair then allegedly went to Humphries’ hotel room at The Thompson where they had unprotected sex. The court documents state the two ‘had sexual intercourse more than once’ and ‘Defendant Humphries did not at any time inform Plaintiff that he was infected with the incurable venereal disease, Herpes Simplex Virus.’
Goldberg claims she was ‘free of any venereal diseases at the time she commenced her intimate relationship with Kris Humphries’ and developed symptoms four or five days later before being diagnosed on September 8.
However reports have now emerged that Humphries is claiming to friends there is no way he could have given Goldberg herpes, because he apparently recently tested negative for the sexually-transmitted disease.
‘Kris was recently accused by another woman of giving her herpes, this happened within the last two months.”
‘Kris tested negative for it though and for any other sexually transmitted disease and he is absolutely steadfast that he has never given anyone herpes.’
And the insider alleges that Humphries won’t be going down without a fight and may counter-sue.
The source said: ‘Kris plans on vigorously fighting the lawsuit filed against him by Kayla Goldberg and is considering counter-suing her for defamation.’
They added: ‘Kris will take the advice of his lawyers, but he absolutely wants to take legal action against Kayla Goldberg for her actions and this lawsuit.’
These legal troubles arrived right as Kris is in the midst of a messy divorce battle with estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
Humphries married Kardashian one year after the alleged illicit encounter on August 20, 2011. The reality star famously filed for divorce just 72 days later.
A court date has been set for November, meaning the couple’s divorce in unlikely to be settled before next year.
Meanwhile, his parents Debra and William finalized their divorce on what would have been the couple’s first wedding anniversary.
