Kim Kardashian‘s divorce attorney has called a foul on her estranged husband, New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries.
According to the Associated Press, Laura Wasser, representing Kardashian in the divorce proceedings, told a Los Angeles judge Friday she believes Humphries’ “personal feelings and maybe some media drive is keeping the case alive,” and added that the couple is now, by law, eligible for a divorce “since it has been more than six months since Kardashian filed her petition.” (The reality star, 31, filed her papers on October 31.)
“Certainly, they’ve been separated longer than they’ve been married,” Wasser added, emphasizing that Humphries is needlessly delaying the case. (Humphries’ attorneys counter that they require more time to gather information, in order to weigh the viability of pursuing an annulment, the route the NBA star hopes to take.)
Though both of their legal representation was present in the courtroom Friday, neither Kardashian or Humphries attended.
Sources close to Kim back up her attorney’s claim that Humphries is indeed the one holding up the case for him and his soon-to-be ex, now dating Kanye West.
“He’s doing anything he can to get her attention,” an insider revealed toUs Weekly. “She would grant a divorce in a second. But he won’t sign the papers. He won’t let go.”
Adds a second source close to the E! star, “He’s doing this to humiliate her, plain and simple. Kris wants to hurt her.”
