Kris Humphries opposes giving Kim Kardashian a speedy trial due to pregnancy

By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/06/2013 

Kris Humphries has filed a motion opposing estranged wife Kim Kardashian's request for a speedy trial to finalize their divorce.

Humphries is claiming that because the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is currently pregnant with boyfriend and rapper Kanye West's baby, Kardashian is attempting to gain an unfair advantage in their divorce proceedings by trying to rush setting their trial date, E! News reported.

According to the NBA basketball player's attorney Marshall Waller, Humphries is claiming Kardashian's pregnancy is not his problem nor is it a good enough excuse to accelerate their divorce.

"What is really going on here is that an 'urgency' in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something the Respondent had nothing to do with, is perceived by Plaintiff as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial," Waller stated in a filing obtained by E! News.

"Indeed, why would [Kim] plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?"

Waller is also suggesting Kardashian's desire to speed up the process may be a sign she's hiding information potentially harmful to her case.

"What are [Kim and her camp] hiding?" Humphries' attorney added. "What is there in the raw footage of this televised courtship, 72-day marriage and resultant breakup that they are so afraid of us discovering?"

Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries in late October 2011 citing irreconcilable differences, only 72 days after tying the knot.

The Kourtney and Kim Take Miami star has since believed Humphries has allegedly been dragging out the pair's divorce for over a year out of spite for how their relationship had ended. However, Humphries' attorneys are sternly claiming the NBA basketball player hasn't settled the case yet simply because he strongly believes he was frauded and wants an annulment.

In the court filing, Humphries is reportedly insisting he be present when Kardashian is questioned at her deposition but he won't be available until mid-May or June due to his game schedule.

E! News reported a hearing is scheduled for February 15 in which a trial date will hopefully be determined.
