Kris Humphries is being sued by a clothing store in Beverly Hills, according to new reports out Thursday.

Scott Hill has already filed a lawsuit against the Brooklyn Nets NBA star this week, celebrity news website TMZ has claimed.

In the lawsuit, Scott Hill has claimed that Humphries was given a 30 percent discount on everything in the store as part of an agreement that would also see the basketball star deliver two NBA clients within a 12 month period. However, it has been alleged that Humphries has not lived up to his end of the deal.

Scott Hill is claiming that Humphries owes them $52,000 in damages for breaching the agreement.

The clothing company has told Hip Hollywood: "The simple matter is that we hoped Kris would live up to his side of the agreement, but he chose not to appreciate that hard work my company put in … We gave Kris the opportunity to clear things up. For sometime, there's been a difference of opinion on how things should be handled. Therefore, we had to take legal remedy."

The lawsuit claims that following the agreement, Humphries purchased more than $46,000 in merchandise from the store, and still has more than $6,000 in unpaid bills.

Scott Hill is now claiming that the NBA star should deliver back a sum equal to the discounted figure he has been previously offered, as well as further damages for the breached contract.

Despite the lawsuit circulating around the media this week, Humphries as yet has declined to speak out on the situation publicly.

The report of the lawsuit also comes as Humphries' legal battle with estranged wife Kim Kardashian nears a climax.

The two are finally set to get their day in court in the coming months, and Humphries will look to show that the reality TV star was never serious about their marriage and only wed for publicity reasons.

Kardashian, who is now pregnant by rapper Kanye West despite still legally being married to Humphries, has refuted all claims that their marriage was a sham.
