Kris Humphries’ Lawyer Wants To QuitBy: Amanda Crum - February 15, 2013
Kris Humphries, who has been locked in a legal battle with ex-wife Kim Kardashian for over a year now as the two try to finalize their divorce, is facing another setback in the case after his attorney Marshall Waller filed a motion to be removed as his legal counsel.
Citing “irreconcilable differences”, Waller petitioned the court to quit the case right before a hearing based on Kardashian’s request to get a court date set as soon as possible. It’s not clear yet what those differences may be, but it’s possible Waller just wants to move on from the case that won’t die.
The famous couple were married just 72 days before splitting, with Humphries claiming that Kim orchestrated their relationship and elaborate wedding just for ratings for her immensely popular reality show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”. Since Kim broke the news that she’s now pregnant with rapper Kanye West’s baby, the legal drama has reached an all-time high, with reports that Humphries could legally claim the baby as his own and speculation that Humphries has deliberately been delaying the case in order to get some sort of revenge.
Depending on today’s court date, this may not be over for a while. Kim is due to give birth in July.
