Kim Kardashian has suffered a legal setback in her ongoing bitter divorce battle as reports that her star witness is pregnant with Kris Humphries‘ baby have proved to be false, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As we previously reported, after stories surfaced that Myla Sinanaj was pregnant with Humphries’ baby, she finally set the record straight on Tuesday and emphatically stated that she wasn’t expecting a bundle of joy anytime soon and had never been carrying his baby.
“Myla had absolutely been telling her friends that she was pregnant with Kris’ baby,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “Everyone in Kris’ camp, including the NBA star, thought Myla was indeed pregnant. No one could get a straight answer from her.”
It’s a major legal setback for Kardashian as her lawyers had subpoenaed Myla to be deposed in divorce proceedings and could have poked holes in Humphries’ claims that he had been defrauded by the reality star in the marriage.
“Kim’s lawyers are certainly going to have to re-think their strategy to determine if they still want to depose Myla. Myla would easily be impeached under questioning from Kris’ lawyers. Yes, Kris did hook up with Myla, but they were never in an exclusive relationship,” the source told Radar. It’s unclear if Myla’s deposition will still proceed as scheduled.
Sinanaj had hired Joe Tacopina as her attorney after Humphries accused the hotel worker of attempting to extort him. However, “Joe fired Myla as a client several days ago. Myla no longer has an attorney,” an insider told Radar. “Myla’s inability to be honest and forthcoming with information to Joe is the main reason he had no choice but to fire her. Joe just doesn’t have the time for this ridiculous drama.”
Team Humphries plans to depose Kim Kardashian in the next several weeks.
