Looks like Kim Kardashian’s divorce won’t be finalized any time soon; attorneys for her estranged husband want to interview the reality star’s mom and current boyfriend, Kanye West, before setting a trial date.
An attorney for NBA star Kris Humphries told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney during a hearing Monday that it would be at least four months before he could complete discovery and depositions, and be ready for trial. He said Kardashian’s side hadn’t exactly sped things along.
“I don’t want to use the word ‘uncooperative,’ but they are not making the process easier,” Humphries’ attorney, Marshall Waller, told the judge, according to E!
Waller said he had requested but has yet to obtain business records from Kris Jenner, Kardashian’s mom. He said he wouldn’t depose Jenner until he received the records.
Waller is seeking the information from companies that produce Kardashian’s reality shows in an effort to prove the couple’s 72-day marriage was a fraud.
Among the 33 witnesses he plans to depose is rapper Kanye West.
According to E!, Kardashian’s attorney, Laura Wasser, complained to the judge that West was served with a summons from Humphries’ attorneys by a “strange individual outside my client’s house,” saying “he had a box for Mr. West.”
Wasser said it was unnecessary, since she would have gladly given the name of West’s attorney to Waller.
“To say I am frustrated is an understatement,” Wasser told the judge, according to E! “I’m at a loss to figure out what the holdup is. They had a prenup and were married 72 days.”
Wasser said Kardashian had already incurred $250,000 in legal fees, which she plans to bill to Humphries.
“We are going to ask for every cent of those fees back from his client,” Wasser told the judge, according to E! “To what end does he want this annulment?”
The couple was married in August 2011. Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31, citing irreconcilable differences and noting that there was a prenuptial agreement. A month later, Humphries requested a legal separation or an annulment, making no mention of a prenup.
