Pregnancy rumors are swirling around Kim Kardashian and her beau Kanye West. Attorneys for both Kris Humphries and Kardashian appeared in court on Wednesday November 28 for a status hearing.
So what does Kim Kardashian want for Christmas, a divorce from estranged husband Kris Humphries. If the reality star is in fact pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West’s baby, still being married to another man just might further damage her already tarnished reputation.
Kim Kardashian has been trying to get divorced for over a year and a half. It’s taking much longer to get divorced than her 72 day marriage.
Famed attorney Laura Wasser is representing Kardashian in her divorce proceedings. Wasser appeared in court for the next status hearing in the Kardashian/Humphries divorce.
According to Wasser, poor Kim is “handcuffed” to Humphries. “Ms. Kardashian is now handcuffed to Kris Humphries. These delays are forcing her to be married. She wants to dissolve her marriage so she can move on with her life. I don’t think Kris has a case, it’s a fishing expedition.”
Kris Humphries attorney Marshall Waller told the judge on Wednesday that “All she has to do is agree to an annulment.” However, he did make a point to notify the judge that the witnesses he wanted to depose were making it difficult for him.
Waller stated in court that he wasn’t able to contact the witnesses he wanted to speak with because “these people are hard to locate.” Humphries is also asking for the return of the engagement ring he gave Kardashian.
Humphries paid $750,000 for the 20.5 carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring. He believes since she ended the marriage after only 72 days that she should return it to him. Kardashian on the other hand has refused to return the ring.
A source close to Humphries stated, “Kris is adamant that he wants the ring back. And it’s becoming a real sticking point between his and Kim’s attorneys. She has made it plain that she has no intention of returning it though and feels she is within her legal right to refuse as she went through with the wedding.”
“However, Kris contends that the marriage was a total sham and that Kim only wed him for the publicity so therefore she has no right to keep such an expensive gift. Kris doesn’t understand why Kim would even want to keep the ring anyway. It obviously has no sentimental value as she has publically declared their wedding as a ‘huge mistake’ and she certainly doesn’t need the money, so why doesn’t she just return it to him?”
Standing outside the courtroom, Wasser addressed the media which indicated they wanted the case to go to trial already. Her reasoning is “because that’s the only way this will end. There was no fraud.”
The source continued, “Kris is more than willing, and eager, to end this chapter of his life. But he wants it done on his terms. He thinks Kim tricked him into marrying and he wants his day in court to prove that.”
“There’s no ulterior motive, he just wants the record set straight and what he perceives as a massive wrongdoing against him put right.”
Humphries is out to prove that their entire marriage was nothing but a publicity stunt for her television shows, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and Kim and Kourtney Take New York. He filed his divorce with the cause listed as fraud.
The couple are due back in court on February 15 so the judge can determine whether or not this case will go to trial
