Kris Humphries probably should have taken the last deal offered by Kim Kardashian after all.
The basketball player’s divorce attorney, Marshall Waller, dropped Humphries this morning just before his joint court appearance with Kim Kardashian.
According to TMZ, Waller says there has been “irremediable breakdown of the attorney-client relationship.”
Kardashian’s attorney, Laura Wasser, is expected to demand a trial date as early as March. The pregnant reality star, 32, filed for divorce on Oct. 31, 2011, just 72 days after tying the knot in a two-part E! special seen by 10.5 million viewers.
Humphries responded by an annulment based on fraud while asking Kardashian to pay his legal fees. Because of the athlete’s repeated protests, the trial has been delayed three times. By demanding everyone from Kris Jenner to his wedding planner be deposed in his annulment request, Humphries has stretched the case to more than 450 days.
The 27-year-old basketball player’s team is expected to complete the discovery phase by Feb 15. If they don’t, Judge Stephen Moloney recently warned, “I’ll indicate the respondent is not complying.”
“It’s sad Kris is playing this game,” a Kardashian source said in Us Weekly’s Jan. 28 issue. “Kim doesn’t think he can be happy until he moves on.”
This guy drives me nuts. I think it’s hilarious his lawyer dropped him.
