Kris Humphries’ lawyers want to interview Kim Kardashian’s current boyfriend, Kanye West, before setting a trial to end the estranged couple’s 72-day marriage. Humphries’ team reportedly tried a sneak attack with West’s subpoena by putting it in a Nordstrom box and sending it to Kardashian’s house, reports TMZ.
Kardashian’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, told the judge in a hearing Wednesday (Aug. 15) about the maneuver, noting that Humphries has also subpoenaed Kardashian’s mom, Kris Jenner, as well as NBC Universal and Bunim/Murray, which produces the Kardashian reality shows.
Kris Humphries’ lawyer, Marshall Waller, says he wants to prove the marriage was a fraud engineered by Kardashian to benefit her reality show. He says he wants to be informed about the show before taking Kardashian’s deposition.
As a result, the judge says it will likely be next year before the couple is granted a divorce or annulment, according to the Associated Press.
Wasser seems irked with the pace of the proceedings, noting that her firm has already spent $250,000 on the case, and says she will be billing Humphries for the work.
