The divorce proceedings between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries began this week, which means all of the dirty laundry is going to be aired - and it starts with a doozy: Sources say Kim physically abused Kris!

According to Star Magazine (via, Kim would physically attack the basketball player in fits of rage. "It was much worse behind the scenes. She would pound her fists on his chest and throw sharp objects off her nightstand at him. It could have escalated into a scary situation," said a source.

Another source claims that Kim despises her fan base, claiming Kris has phone messages "Where she calls her audience 'gullible,' 'stupid imbeciles,' 'boring little nobodies' and 'pathetic people with no lives of their own.'"

Despite all this, Kim told Oprah in an interview that nothing "horrible" happened between them. We may find out how wrong she is as the divorce proceedings continue.
