Kim Kardashian’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, accused Kris Humphries of attempting to prolong the proceedings to dissolve their marriage for publicity’s sake during a brief hearing Friday morning.
But Kris Humphries is not intimidated, according to Radar Online, and he is pressing for a divorce trial rather than an out-of-court settlement in order to get the truth out.
“The only way that this case won’t go to trial is if Kim publicly apologizes to Kris and admits that she only married him for television ratings,” revealed a source close to Kris Humphries.
“Kris just wants the truth to come out and Kim is just absolutely livid that she isn’t getting her own way. Kris wants Kim to answer questions about their relationship, under oath.”
The source continued: “Kris is ready for a fight and he has said that Kim should <<bring it on>>. Kris won’t be silenced and he isn’t after her money, he doesn’t want one dime from her.
“It’s just about the truth coming out, something that Kim’s camp seems to be petrified about.”
Kris Humphries, 27, wants to know what happened to one of their wedding presents – a $325,000 white Ferrari – given to the couple by a wealthy Malaysian businessman, among other things.
“Kris is ready to be deposed and answer questions under oath. He looks forward to Kim being deposed and he will be there when it happens,” the source said.
Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian tweeted her approval of a radio show that was publicly criticizing Kris Humphries.
The hosts of the Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg radio show on Hot 97 approved of Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend rapper Kanye West and called Kris Humphries a “nobody” on the air.
“He went from being an unknown NBA player to one of the most talked about players, just because of dating Kim,” said Rosenberg, adding: “He even became a better basketball player after dating and marrying her.”
Kim Kardashian, who has 14 million followers and was just recognized as the number one most-followed person on Instagram, immediately took to her Twitter page to comment.
She wrote: “Was listening to Hot 97 this morning! Thanks for the shout out lol! I love those guys!!!”
It’s a move that Kris Humphries allegedly considers really low since he has never “stooped” to the same tactics.
“Kris wasn’t listening to the show but he would never support anyone speaking unkindly or maliciously about Kim. It’s just not who he is as a person,” the source told Radar Online.
“It’s disappointing that Kim has chosen to embrace that sort of negativity about their relationship. Kris has moved on and even if she continues to behave in this manner he won’t change who he is and sink to her level, it’s just not necessary.”
Kim Kardashian infamously split from Kris Humphries and filed for divorce just 72 days into their union last October.
Kris Humphries is seeking an annulment. However his legal team argued they need more time to gather information to decide whether to pursue allegations that the couple’s marriage was a fraud.
Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney told both sides to return to court on August 15 for a status hearing.
