Kris Humphries just filed legal docs saying he doesn’t understand the urgency for a quick divorce, and he shouldn’t have to jump just because Kim Kardashian got accidentally knocked up.
Kris’ lawyer, Marshall Waller, says in the docs, “What is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something [Humphries] had nothing to do with, is perceived by [Kim] as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial.”
And get this … after the word “pregnancy” there’s a footnote that reads, “Indeed, why would [Kim] plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?”
Translation — Waller thinks Kim is putting a gun to his client’s head, which is bizarre because the divorce has dragged on for well over a year for a marriage that lasted 72 days.
Waller says Kim shouldn’t worry about the legal presumption that Kris is the father of Kim’s kid because she got pregnant while they were still married — Waller says Kris is happy to stipulate he’s not the daddy.
Kris says in the docs he wants to be present for Kim’s deposition and has a right to be there, but due to his work schedule he’s unavailable until mid-May or June.
We’re guessing the judge is going to lose patience at the trial setting conference and set the divorce trial for March.
