Kim Kardashian’s Lawyer Accuses Kris Humphries of Dragging Out Divorce for Media Attention
Estranged newlyweds Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries just can’t seem to play nice. TMZ reports that Kim’s lawyer, super-powered attorney Laura Wasser, is convinced the NBA star is loving the media attention from his ill-fated relationship with the sexy tabloid fave so much that he’s determined to draw it out.
Wasser appeared in court today for a brief hearing and announced that Kim and Kris haven’t made any headway in their divorce case. The duo (who were married only 72 days) had an air-tight prenup in place, which should have made dividing their assets easy-peasy. But Wasser says it’s Kris who is making things difficult — and keeping his name in the press — by making salacious claims against Kim and refusing to settle matter outside of court proceedings. Among the assertions made, Kris alleges that his marriage to the reality star was a fraud.
According to RadarOnline, the reason for the hearing in the first place was to decide if Lee Hutton, Kris's Minnesota-based lawyer, would be able to represent the basketball star in California.
But this matrimonial scuffle may soon come to an end. The judge has said Kim can now be questioned about her motives for marrying the hoopster, which means the truth will come out once and for all. And if the twosome go to court over the fraud issue and Kim comes out on top — which her lawyer clearly thinks she will — she says Kim will demand Kris pay her attorney fees. Ouch.
