Kris Humphries believes that Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy is no reason to rush their long divorce battle. Despite the fact that Kardashian filed for divorce in 2011, she and Humphries, 28, are still legally married, reportedly due to his unwillingness to settle.
In December, Kardashian, 32, announced she was carrying the baby of her current boyfriend, Kanye West. The two have been dating for around a year.
Now, a lawyer for Humphries, Marshall Waller, has filed new documents accusing Kardashian of using her pregnancy as an excuse to speed up the divorce proceedings. Waller states Humphries had nothing to do with her “unplanned pregnancy,” and it should not affect litigation.
According to TMZ, the documents read: “What is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something [Humphries] had nothing to do with, is perceived by [Kim] as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial.”
Humphries’ lawyer took a further jab at Kim in a footnote after the word “pregnancy” stating: “Indeed, why would [Kim] plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?”
The pair have been playing dirty in court ever since Kardashian filed for divorce in October 2011 to end their 72-day marriage, which featured in an over-the-top TV special. The primary source of disagreement is how to legally end the marriage. Kris wants an annulment on grounds of fraud, while Kardashian denies she married him under false pretenses and wants a divorce.
