Kim Kardashian’s divorce won’t be finalized any time soon, as her estranged hubby Kris Humphries’ lawyers want to interview her mom Kris Jenner and current boyfriend, Kanye West, before setting a trial date.
The NBA star’s attorney told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney during a hearing on Monday, that it would be at least four months before he could complete discovery and depositions, and be ready for trial and said that the 31-year-old reality star’s side hadn’t exactly sped things along, ABC News reported.
“I don’t want to use the word ‘uncooperative,’ but they are not making the process easier,” E! quoted Humphries’ attorney, Marshall Waller, as telling the judge.
Waller said that he had requested but was yet to obtain business records from Jenner and that he wouldn’t depose her until he received the records.
Waller is also seeking the information from companies that produce her reality shows, in an effort to prove that the couple’s 72-day marriage was a fraud.
Kardashian’s rapper boyfriend West, is also among the 33 witnesses he plans to depose.
However, 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 that “he had a box for Mr. West.”
She also said that 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.I’m at a loss to figure out what the holdup is. They had a prenup and were married 72 days,” she told the judge.
She said that Kardashian had already incurred $250,000 in legal fees, which she planned to bill to Humphries.
“We are going to ask for every cent of those fees back from his client.
“To what end does he want this annulment?” she told the judge.
