Apparently it’s not just the claims of a sham-marriage or the demands for more money that’s keeping the drawn-out divorce between Kim Kardashian and estranged hubby Kris Humphries alive: It’s Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner!
 
According to Hollywood Life, the momager refuses to let the two exes settle.
 
“Kris Jenner has decided that she will let the divorce drag on because she is not willing to give into any of Kris’ demands,” said an insider. “Kim wants them to just settle out of court, but Kris Jenner is adamant that Kris will not get away with calling the marriage a scam.”

 

Now that Kim and Kanye have a baby on the way, the Kardashian matriarch is also worried that the divorce may sully the family's power as a brand.

 

"Kris is concerned about the negative press and criticism Kim will get if she goes through with it," a source told Radar Online. "Kris’s main concern is how E! would react to Kim’s decision since the network aired their wedding special."

But the hard-driving momager reportedly won’t rest until things go the Kardashian way, which includes denying Kris’s claims that his marriage to Kim was a fraud.

“So for now and probably for some time, Kim will remain stuck in this marriage,” the source said. “Believe me: it’s going to drag on for a very long time!”
