Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are heading for the mother of all divorces that could take months to make its way through court because of Humphries determination to expose Kim’s reality television shows as elaborate frauds.
Humphries’ attorney, Marshall Waller, charged today (Aug. 15) that he is being stonewalled by the production companies that film “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Kourtney and Kim Take New York.”
In a shocking revelation, Waller disclosed that he wanted to depose 33 witnesses before trial, according to E! Online, a process that could take months, pushing the trail into next year. Among those on the list, Kanye West and momager Kris Jenner.
Humphries claims his marriage to Kardashian was a set up to drive ratings for the shows and to make possible a wedding extravaganza that reportedly generated $18 million in product endorsements and advertising for two, two-hour television shows.
Evidence has surfaced that parts of the Kardashian reality shows are fabricated, while other parts appeared to be scripted. The last season of “Kourtney and Kim Take New York,” bashed Humphries almost non-stop. The baskeballer said the show grossly distorted his character.
Kardashian lawyer Laura Wasser complained about the lengthy discovery process and rising legal bills, not that Kim can’t afford them. Or Humphries for that matter. Money at this point appears to be no object.
Kim’s credibility and image were severely tarnished when she announced the end of the marriage after just 72 days and has a lot more to lose if Humphries is successful at trial.
Los Angeles Court Judge Stephen Moloney has set a hearing to update the case in November.
