Lawyers for Kardashian, Humphries go to court
Posted November 28, 2012
Kim Kardashian's battle to end her marriage to Kris Humphries has stretched out well beyond the actual amount of time the couple was married.
More than a year after their 72-day marriage died a most unceremonious death, Kardashian and Humphries are still trying to make the split official. Their lawyers went before a judge today in L.A. where both sides argued that it was the other side's fault that the matter was still tangled up in court and is heading for trial.
"Ms. Kardashian is now handcuffed to Kris Humphries," her lawyer Laura Wasser said. "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."
Wasser added, "We want a trial because that's the only way this will end. There was no fraud."
Humphries' side disagrees, though, alleging that the reality star's desire to marry him was all for show -- literally, since Kardashian and her family have a slew of unscripted shows on E!
The NBA player's counsel claims that Kardashian "had no intent of being married" and that their lavish August 2011 wedding was all "for the benefit of her TV show."
"All she has to do is agree to an annulment (based on fraud)," Humphries' attorney Marshall Waller said.
And, in an effort to prove the allegedly fradulent nature of their relationship, Humphries' team has deposed, among others, Kardashian's mother Kris Jenner and her boyfriend, rapper Kanye West.
But don't expect the drama to wrap up any time soon. If both sides can't reach an agreement and settle, they'll be back in court on Feb. 15 for a hearing to determine a possible trial date.
