Kim Kardashian: Seeking divorce trial
LOS ANGELES -- Kim Kardashian’s divorce attorney is urging a speedy end to her marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries.
Lawyers for the pregnant reality star and the Brooklyn Nets power forward disagree over a timetable for a trial to end the marriage, which Humphries wants annulled.
Kardashian is asking a judge to order a trial as soon as possible. Humphries wants the case to remain on hold until the basketball season ends.
Kardashian’s attorney Laura Wasser has repeatedly sought a trial date so that the marriage can be ended.
The model is due to give birth in July to a child conceived with her boyfriend Kanye West. Each side accuses the other of trying to use Kardashian’s pregnancy for a legal advantage.
"It appears from (Kardashian’s) moving papers that what is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy Š is perceived by (Kardashian) as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial," Waller wrote in a court filing earlier this month.
"(Humphries) to his great discredit thinks that because (Kardashian) is now pregnant he can exert some leverage over (her) knowing that she wants to be divorced," Wasser wrote.
