Hollywood, CA- Kim Kardashian’s divorce is dragging on much longer that her brief 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries and after yesterday’s court appearance there seems to be no end in sight.
Humphries divorce team accused Kim’s attorney from holding up proceedings by delaying the discovery process. In court, Humphries team asked for detailed record about her reality show and depositions from Kim’s mother and current boyfriend, Kanye West in order to prove that his marriage was a fraud. If they can successfully prove fraud Humphries can be granted and annulment.
Marshall Waller, Humphries’ attorney told the judge, “I don’t want to use the word uncooperative, but they are not making the process easier.” Waller also told the judge he would need four more months to prepare for trial.
Kim’s divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, accused Humphries of overreach and noted that the delayed proceedings have cost her client $250,000 in legal fees, which they plan to pass on to Humphries.
“To say I am frustrated is an understatement,” Wasser told the judge, “I’m at a loss to figure out what the hold-up is. They had a prenup and were married for 72 days. To what end does he want an annulment?”
Waller clarified their reasoning for seeking annulment stating he was trying to prove Kim “had no intention of proceeding with this marriage. That is was basically a contrivance for the benefit of her show and to make money.”
For Humphries, a Catholic, the divorce battle seems to be more about principle than money; he recently signed a contract with the Brooklyn Nets for $24 million.
