Never have family lawyers in Pasadena seen such a short marriage lead to such a long and increasingly ugly divorce. But when it comes to celebrity all-time lows, we've learned to expect Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries to exceed our expectations.
That much-ballyhooed marriage that ended in a much-ridiculed divorce last October between sometime NBA star Kris Humphries and reality TV star Kim Kardashian is just starting to heat up, and sources say it's Humphries who wants to take down not only Kardashian but her mom/manager Kris Jenner and the entire reality TV genre. RadarOnline.com is reporting that Humphries' divorce attorney is looking to question Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner and several E! network executives regarding a filmed conversation Kardashian and Jenner had on-camera about her divorce. Kim and Kourtney Take New York had viewers believing that the mom and daughter head-to-head took place in Dubai while on a business trip. But Humphries' attorney says it was all filmed on a Hollywood sound stage nearly two months after the actual trip. And December photos captured Jenner and Kardashian leaving the studio wearing the same clothes as featured in the Dubai episode.
Humphries cites "fraud" in his initial divorce response and he feels the phony filming backs his case.
"Kris feels that if this is true and the whole conversation was faked, this would help prove that he got married under fraudulent circumstances. Yes, this did occur after the marriage, but this is one clear example that could help sway the judge to grant the divorce on the grounds of fraud," an insider told RadarOnline.com.
Humphries also hopes that this line of questioning will help get their divorce proceedings televised, much to the dismay of his usually camera-hungry ex.
"A public trial is the last thing that Kim wants, and she has instructed her lawyer to formally petition the court so that the divorce can be heard by a mediator, which is routinely done in California, since it's a no-fault state," a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com. "Kim doesn't want a long, drawn-out trial. She wants the mediation to be private, confidential, and legally binding. She and Kris have no assets together and kept separate bank accounts, so this is a fairly routine divorce proceeding. Kim just wants this over and done with."
