Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries "was a sham," according to statements made by Humphries' family.

In an interview with U.K.'s The Sun, Humphries' Aunt Dedria and Uncle Mike expressed their feelings on their nephew's marriage to the reality starlet.

"It was a sham," Dedria said of Kris' failed marriage to Kim. "My understanding of marriage is people are going to give it more than 72 days unless there's serious abuse. If I felt somebody had duped me and used me in front of the whole world, I would be very angry. An annulment says it wasn't valid in the first place. She should admit that it was a sham at the very least."
