Kris Humphries’ lawyer leaves Kim Kardashian divorce case as trial date is set


Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries marriage lasted less than three months, but it seems like the divorce is taking three years. Kim’s kid with Kanye is gonna be in kindergarten before all this is over. Thankfully, for all of us, things seem to be moving along because a trial date has been set and Kris Humphries’ lawyer has allegedly quit.

TMZ has sources telling them that his lawyer Marshall Waller even told Kris “there are NO legal grounds for annulling his marriage to Kim, because there’s absolutely NO evidence of fraud,” and that he is “abusing the legal system.”

A court date has been set for May 6, and Judge Scott Gordon, who presided over Britney Spears and Kevin Federline’s 2007 divorce will hear the case.

Today (Friday, February 15,) the same day he allegedly filed papers to be relieved of counsel, Waller appeared before judge Judge Stephen Moloney, who ordered that the case proceed to trial despite Humphries’ attempt to delay the trial due to “uncooperative third parties.”

According to E Online, Waller told the court: “This is a fraud case. It really is. And that is a case that takes a lot of time to develop. We are not ready to go forward. We do need more time.”

According to NYDN Waller argued that he needed more time to “obtain and review 13,000 hours of footage from Kardashian’s reality shows to try to prove the fraud claim but noted he does not yet have an agreement to receive the footage.”

TMZ states that Waller cited “irreconcilable differences” as his reason to part from Humphries. UPDATE: TMZ is now saying that Waller decided to leave because Humphries’ out-of-state lawyer Lee Hutton refused to let go of seeking an annulment.

    Not a big fan of Kim, but this is literally grasping at straws here. Even from the short amount of footage he was involved in, you could see that he was the spiteful type and he’s doing this just to embarrass her. Won’t call her a “poor girl,” but seriously. Dragging it out this long? Makes you look desperate and an asshat.

    “Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries marriage lasted less than three months…”
    No, legally they are still married.

    • Mickey

      Everybody says the marriage lasted 72 days. They were only married 3 months before she filed for divorce

    Not really on either of their sides here seeing as he clearly chose to propose to her when they obviously did not know each other well enough and she accepted. I think they are both at fault here. I think he really needs to get over this annulment thing so they can just get divorced and move on with their lives already.

    I guess I am the only person who really doesn’t feel bad for Kim. You reap what you sow, and when you make a mockery out of marriage; karma does happen and this just happens to be her karma.

      I agree with you but he was the one who decided to propose to her when they hadn’t been dating for very long at all. So I don’t see why he should expect that he can just get annulment. They both need to just settle on the divorce.

        He wants an annulment because she didn’t intend to stay married to him, which I believe is true.
        In one of her interviews she expresses that she wants to be exactly like Elizabeth Taylor (who married many times), let’s say she didn’t mean it that way- well if you look at how she acted up until the wedding and even after, it was almost as if she was getting us ready for them to eventually split just like what she’s doing on her new show KKTM is talking all about fertility, and now she’s pregnant. She kind of alludes to things that are going to happen.
        (I don’t like Kim, but that unfortuntely for me was the only thing that was on when I was sick a couple of weeks ago- that’s why I know about the new episodes)
