Kim’s refusal to say that the marriage was a fraud is holding up divorce proceedings.
“Unless Kim Kardashian gives in to Kris’ demand that she admit the marriage fraudulent, the divorce proceedings will still be ongoing and she will still be legally married to him when she gives birth,” a source close to the situation says.
On February 15, Kim and Kris’ divorce lawyers will be in court setting a date for the trial. The earliest the trial that can be scheduled would be the middle of June to accommodate Kris’s basketball schedule. His team, the Nets is now in second place in its division, and the play-offs don’t end until June.
Kim, who is three months pregnant, will likely give birth in late June.
The source said,
“Kris isn’t trying to drag this out, but he wants to be vindicated in court. Kris will see this through to the end” the source said.
Kim’s pregnancy is progressing well. In Sin City for New Year’s Eve, she told Entertainment Tonight that she hasn’t had any morning sickness.
“I wouldn’t say it has been easy, but no morning sickness,” the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star said.
“It is not as easy as people think,” she added apparently neither is marriage.
Humphries and Kardashian’s union lasted just 72 days. Now the NBA player wants the 20.5 carat Elaine Schwartz diamond ring, worth $2 million, he gave to his estranged wife back. She is refusing.
Kim’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, told the judge during a routine hearing in the proceedings in November that her client was being kept “handcuffed” to Humphries by his refusal to grant a divorce and insistence that the former couple head to trial instead of ending their brief marriage.
“These delays are forcing her to be married. She wants to dissolve her marriage so she can move on with her life. I don’t think [Kris] has a case, it’s a fishing expedition.”
Fired back Humphries’ attorney Marshall Waller: “All she has to do is agree to an annulment.”
But even though Kim has now clearly moved on in her life and is pregnant, it’s thought she will never agree to an annulment on the grounds that the marriage was fraudulent because it would cause catastrophic damage to her brand, the insider said.
