Holy matrimony took an unholy turn back in October, when news broke that reality television star Kim Kardashian filed a disclaimer of interest -- wait, no, I meant a petition for divorce from New Jersey Nets free agent forward Kris Humphries.

Their marriage lasted 72 days, just enough time to get footage for Kardashian's new E! television series, Kourtney & Kim Take New York. The series debuted on Monday and featured startling footage of Kardashian winding up to punch Humphries for "accidentally breaking her toenail," according to TheImproper.com.

Kardashian appears to be smiling while throwing the punch and Humphries doesn't exactly cower in fear, but psychologist Dr. Drew Pinsky opined on CNN that the punch amounted to domestic violence.

"What you are seeing there is domestic violence," Pinsky told viewers. "A lot of people watching this may not understand that and I get that. It looks playful. What’s the big deal? It is a massive deal."

Pinsky continued: "Kris and Kim, listen, they're separating and that's over with, this doesn't need to be reported or anything. But anybody listening at home or viewing this has to understand the spectrum of domestic violence. And this is an incontrovertible piece of evidence of someone who is engaged in a domestic violence relationship."

Here's the video of Kim Kardashian punching New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries courtesy of CNN.com.

My question is, did Kris know ahead of time that he was entering into a fake marriage?  If not, I feel bad for the guy.

I mean seriously, she's got a NAKED YOGA INSTRUCTOR in her house less than a month after "wedding bliss"???

What a mockery.

I think this is wrong in the sense that the abuse started way before Kim "ATTEMPTED TO HIT Kris" (Kris caught the swing). I grew up in a family where we weren't allowed to horse play.......He horse played a lot and tossed her around....a lot..... he verbally bashed her as well (watch the video's)....but nobody mentions that....... abuse is abuse....... However, it is attempted abuse in the sense that she was upset and her intention was to cause pain ("allegedly", nobody knows what's in her mind).... So, please rewind and view all the video's before making irresponsible comments that make people look horrible.....This can be some form of foreplay in their world.....It's called SNM...... So, see for yourself not what BEN GOLLIVER (media) wants you to see. I can't believe how the media plays people....don't fall into their trap....

Ben Golliver...... SHE DIDN'T MAKE CONTACT....SO YOU'RE TITLE IS INCORRECT....SHE ATTEMPTED TO HIT KRIS...HE CAUGHT IT AND THE ABUSE DIDN'T START THERE...IT STARTED WITH ALL THE VERBAL ABUSE AND HORSE PLAY AND ROUGHNESS....MR. MAKE A STATEMENT DOES DURING THE WHOLE ENGAGEMENT. YES!!!!!....It's wrong, but so are you for being irresponsible in your journalism....YOU ARE NO BETTER.... 

It all started when the other men told Kris what he is getting married to....he saw that as a challenge (LISTEN TO ALL KRIS SAYS IN ENGAGEMENT VIDEO'S )and got all "I'm the man" "Mr. Male dominant" and then it all turned bad from there because he was trying to prove them wrong. You should be preaching "Don't get married until you know your partner"

You have to laugh when someone here posts a comment attacking Kris for being a wuss or poor basketball player.  I think it's a safe bet that those who crtiticize Kris here couldn't run the length of a basketball court without going into cardiac arrest. This same critic who disses Kris for being with Kim wouldn't know what to do with a woman who has all her teeth let alone someone who looks even remotley like her.  If you had the chance to make a half a million dollars to ride the bench in the NBA and get a piece of someone like Kim Kardashian, you would do it in a heartbeat.  Put the cheeto's down, get off the sofa and get a life!  Kim punching Kris should be treated 100% equally as if he punched her.  It is domestic violence and abuse either way.  Anyone who sees it differently has fallen in to the American cultural trap that views women as the victim and men as the perps no matter what the situation is.

Maybe he should have tried blocking it and breaking a fingernail or two - that would have pissed her off even more. But then again, he doesn't block shots that well either. Oh, the drama.

"Race?"

Uh, no.  Actually, we're a gender.  But don't let that get in the way of a mediocre rant.  Dr Drew is right.  If you are going to call it "domestic violence" when a man does it, you have to call it the same when a woman does it.  Women are equals in the eyes of the law; there is no "selective liberation" and no "selective equality." 
 
Documented abuse is abuse, no matter who does it.

Dr. Drew needs to grow a pair of balls.  This guy is an embarrassment to the entire male race!! (we are a "race" right?)
