Reality star Kim Kardashian’s attorney told a judge Friday that the reality star wants her divorce from Kris Humphries to move forward but sources say that the case has been slowed by the NBA player’s hurt feelings and his desire for an annulment.
Humphries’ attorneys said they needed more time to gathers information to decide whether the couple’s 72-day marriage was a fraud.
Which will require a big trial, which Kardashian’s attorney Laura Wasser said could prove costly to her ex husband.
The couple got married last summer in a lavish, star-studded and televised ceremony, and Kim filed for divorce on Oct. 31. Chris responded by claiming the couple’s nuptials were based on a fraud, but not laying out specific evidence.
“I feel that personal (Humphries’) feelings and maybe some media drive is keeping this case alive,” Wasser said.
L.A. law says that the couple are eligible for a divorce since it has been more than six months since Kardashian filed her petition.
“Certainly, they’ve been separated longer than they’ve been married,” Wasser said.
She also said if the case goes to trial and Kardashian wins, she will ask that Humphries pay all her legal fees.
As of now each side pays their own legal fees.
Humphries’ Los Angeles-based attorney Marshall Waller said they had to wait for the motion to be approved but that he expects to seek key information and the depositions of essential witnesses in the next few weeks.
Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney told both sides to return to court on Aug. 15 for a status hearing.
Neither Kardashian nor Humphries attended Friday’s proceedings. Who do you think will win?
