Hedge Fund Scam Artist Claims Kardashian Affair

Jul 11 2014 | 6:18am ET

Did the hedge fund fraudster who ripped basketball player Kris Humphries off also cuckhold him on the eve of his wedding?

Andrey Hicks, who is serving a three-and-a-half year prison sentence for defrauding Humphries and others of $2.3 million, claimed earlier this week that he and Kardashian had a romantic encounter in Monaco just before her marriage to Humphries in 2011—a trip that included Humphries. But Kardashian’s lawyer has denied the allegations, and challenged Hicks to take a lie-detector test.

In an interview with Perez Hilton, Hicks said that his rendezvous with Kardashian occurred during a fight with Humphries, and that she initiated it.

“Before I could figure anything out she grabbed my hand and came in close,” Hicks said. And while hi “hesitated for a minute,” he eventually “did what any warm-blooded man would do when he’s got Kim Kardashian pressed up against him.”

Hicks said Kardashian later sent him an e-mail calling the encounter “a mistake.”

Kardashian lawyer Marty Singer is having none of it. In a letter to Hicks, Singer blasted him as “a swindling convict and a liar.” He denied that Kardashian ever slept with Hicks or sent the e-mail, and challenged Hicks to take a polygraph test. Nor did Singer miss the opportunity to remind Hicks of one of his more well-known fibs, claiming to have a PhD from Harvard University when “you dropped out of Harvard after three semesters and earned only a D-minus in the only math course you took.”

The Humphries-Kardashian union lasted only 72 days.
