Lights, camera, divorce! The world watched as Kim Kardashian lived out her fairy tale romance alongside NBA star Kris Humphries, but will we get to see them battle it out in divorce court? According to Mr. Humphries this is a definite possibility, apparently the 72 days he was married to Kim were not the most blissful ones.
Kris, along with his attorney, Lee Hutton, plan on televising the divorce to expose Kim as a liar who only wanted to get married to raise the ratings for her E! reality show.
Whether or not Kim’s intentions were true, her ridiculously over-the-top fairy tale wedding racked up more than 10.5 million viewers, the highest in E’s history. Kardashian-mania was rampant and as interests peaked, Kourtney and Kim took the opportunity to take New York as well as more ratings and endorsement deals. Millions all over the world have been tuning in to the sister’s hit spin-off to find out what exactly went wrong in this seemingly perfect fairy tale.
Taking all of this into consideration, it’s pretty to easy to see why Kris would think that Kim is taking advantage of the situation. Either that or he picked up a few tricks from his ex and figured that if millions tuned in for the wedding millions more would tune in for the divorce.
Yet, Kim Kardashian is not going down without a fight and she is formally petitioning for a private mediator with the help of her attorney Laura Wasser. This would mean that cameras would not be allowed inside of the court room and, if Kim has her way, any other future encounters between the pair.
A source tells RadarOnline.com,
“Kim doesn’t want a long drawn out trial. She wants the mediation to be private, confidential and legally binding. She and Kris have no assets together and kept separate bank accounts, so this is a fairly routine divorce proceeding. Kim just wants this over and done with.”
But this is definitely far from over. Kris is refusing to acknowledge “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for separation and is calling fraud on Kim thereby annulling the marriage altogether (¡qué novela!). We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for the next chapter in this never ending divorce saga.
