Kim Kardashian is having a heck of a time making her husband go away, and grant her a divorce. Kim’s doing anything in her power to make it go away quickly, and Kris’ lawyers are putting on the breaks and aren’t interested in a quickie divorce (although at this point, there’s no chance of it being a quickie divorce).
Kris Humphries filed some paperwork yesterday saying he doesn’t understand the urgency in their divorce, and claims he shouldn’t have to jump through any hoops just because Kim is knocked up.
Kris’ lawyer, Marshall Waller, says in the docs, “What is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something [Humphries] had nothing to do with, is perceived by [Kim] as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial.”
And get this … after the word “pregnancy” there’s a footnote that reads, “Indeed, why would [Kim] plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?”
Translation — Waller thinks Kim is putting a gun to his client’s head, which is bizarre because the divorce has dragged on for well over a year for a marriage that lasted 72 days.
Waller says Kim shouldn’t worry about the legal presumption that Kris is the father of Kim’s kid because she got pregnant while they were still married — Waller says Kris is happy to stipulate he’s not the daddy.
Kris says in the docs he wants to be present for Kim’s deposition and has a right to be there, but due to his work schedule he’s unavailable until mid-May or June.
We’re guessing the judge is going to lose patience at the trial setting conference and set the divorce trial for March.
I don’t know what the holdup, is, really. Why does Kris want this to drag on? What’s his sticking point? I don’t get why he doesn’t want to just be done with it as well. It’s annoying that we have to keep hearing about this over and over. Just divorce and be over with it!
One person who’s dying to get this thing over with is Kim. According to Kim’s people, her doctor thinks that her unborn baby is at risk because of the amount of stress she’s under.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … several days ago Kim called her doctor in the middle of the night to come to the house because she was having severe pains. The doctor examined her, but then warned he believed the problems were largely stress-related.
Sources say … the only significant stress in her life right now is the divorce. And hours before her meeting Tuesday with her lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, Kim’s pains returned in full force.
The doctor warned Kim she needs to handle the stress or else there could be “long-term effects.” The doctor did not elaborate, but we’re told Kim is freaked out her baby may be at risk.
Maybe if Kim were really “at risk,” she should give Kris what he wants, and call it a day!
Here are some new pictures of Kim leaving leaving a meeting in Los Angeles today.
