“Unless Kim Kardashian gives in to Kris’ demand that she admit the marriage fraudulent, the divorce proceedings will still be ongoing and she will still be legally married to him when she gives birth, a source close to the situation tells Radar.
On Friday, February 15 — the day after Valentine’s Day — Kim and Kris’ divorce lawyers will be in court setting a date for the trial. The earliest the trial that can be scheduled would be the middle of June to accommodate Kris’s basketball schedule. His team, the Nets is now in second place in its division, and the play-offs don’t end until June.
Kim — who’s three months pregnant — will likely give birth in late June.
“Kris isn’t trying to drag this out, but he wants to be vindicated in court. Kris will see this through to the end” the source tells us exclusively.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the reality starlet’s rapper boyfriend announced Kim’s pregnancy at his concert at Atlantic City of Sunday night.
Kardashian was in Sin City for New Year’s Eve, and she told Entertainment Tonight that she hasn’t had any morning sickness.
“I wouldn’t say it has been easy, but no morning sickness,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star said.
“It is not as easy as people think,” she added while doing red carpet duties at 1 Oak nightclub.
Humphries and Kardashian’s ill-fated marriage lasted a whopping 72 days, and the NBA player wants the 20.5 carat Elaine Schwartz diamond ring he gave to his estranged wife back.
Kimye is refusing to return the $2 million dollar bauble to Humphries.
The E! reality star’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, told the judge during a routine hearing in the proceedings in November that her client was being kept “handcuffed” to Humphries by his refusal to grant a divorce and insistence that the former couple head to trial instead of ending their brief marriage.
“Ms. Kardashian is now handcuffed to Kris Humphries,” Wasser told the judge. “These delays are forcing her to be married. She wants to dissolve her marriage so she can move on with her life. I don’t think [Kris] has a case, it’s a fishing expedition.”
Fired back Humphries’ attorney Marshall Waller: “All she has to do is agree to an annulment.”
Even with the delivery of her first child, “Kim is refusing to cave to any of Kris’ demands. She has moved on with her life, and she won’t agree to an annulment on grounds that the marriage was fraudulent because it would cause catastrophic damage to her brand,” the insider said.
