Kris Humphries: Victim of Wire Fraud by His Own Friend!
Talk about an ungrateful guest! Kris Humphries was sure to include his friend Audrey C. Hicks on the ultra-exclusive guest list for his wedding to Kim in August — Audrey even sat right behind Kris and Kim at the rehearsal dinner. Audrey was known to Kris as a Harvard grad and hedge fund manager, in whose fund Kris invested hundreds of thousand dollars.
Now, TMZ reports that Audrey was at the center of a $1.7 million scam — and got kicked out of Harvard for poor academic performance. (In his one math class, he got a D-. Ouch!) With a federal investigation into Audrey's suspicious business activities ramping up, Audrey was arrested in Canada and charged with wire fraud — on his way out of the country, allegedly on his way to neutral Switzerland. TMZ says that Hicks could face a $250,000 fine and 20 years in federal prison if he's convicted of the offense.
