Kim Kardashian's Lawyer

The Marriage Was Real

11/15/2011 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Laura Wasser and Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian's marriage was absolutely, positively the real deal ... this according to her divorce lawyer.

Disso Queen Laura Wasser, who reps oodles of celebs, not only filed divorce docs on Kim's behalf, she negotiated her prenup.  Wasser tells TMZ, "Our office did indeed negotiate and prepare a prenup for Ms. Kardashian.  Given what I know regarding that document, it is not plausible that this marriage was a sham."

Wasser -- who is notorious for not speaking publicly about her cases --  tells us the negotiations were "prolonged" and dealt with financial issues "that go well into the future" -- markers that would not be present if someone intended a short marriage from the get go.

Sources connected with Kim tell us ... the prenup covered Kim's long-range career plans ... as one source put it, "Why on earth would they [Kim, Kris and their lawyers] create a document which looks far into the future if they planned a marriage that would only last a few months."

And the same sources tell us the prenup was exhaustive -- 30 pages, including exhibits, tax returns and other financial documents. 

As we previously reported, there was a lot of bickering between Kim, Kris and the lawyers during the prenup negotiations -- something that is not a marker of a phony marriage.

Why is she fighting so hard to let people know that the marriage was real. Why can't she fight this hard for her marriage. Unless he has cheated on her and has another woman, want she use these two months of down time to fight for her marriage. I believe that is the only way the public will not believe it was not a sham marriage. Go to Minnesota with your husband and fight for your marriage. How can you fall out of love in less than three months. unless someone else is ready to take your husband's place. If she dates Reggie under a year people will view this as a shame marriage.

Nobody is saying the marriage was fake in the eyes of the law or "on paper". It's fake in that Kim never cared **** about Kris, but faked to him and the public that she did when all along she knew she'd divorce him very soon. Kim must be a very delusional person or she'd have faked for at least a year to avoid a backlash.

Wow - What else is a laywer to say.... They are trying so hard to repair the damage done... Calling a 72 day marriage - that "wrapped up" after filming the K & K NY show is real... the only ones now delusional is KK, her PR & TMZ for posting this foolishness - I'm done - TMZ is starting to look pretty silly - You notice that TMZ post these stories around the same time - almost every night... it's all a part of the sham... I'm through writing my thoughts ... I see I'm writing on TMZ - which is partner to this whole sham... Peace & out

Why would you have a prenup that deals with issues in the future if the wedding is sham? Here's why you'd do that:

1. So that when people questioned whether or not your marriage was a sham, you could point to the pre-nup and say "why would I ..?" No brainer

2. Because any pre-nup is based on another pre-nup. And all pre-nups presume longevity of the relationship. It's actually cheaper for KK to have an existing pre-nup that includes long term plans and modify it, rather than create a short-term one from scratch (which, see #1 above, would prove her short-term ambitions). Another no-brainer.

Honestly, this twit and her lawyer think people are idiots. The fact that she has THIS lawyer commenting publicly shows how desperate Kris Jenner is (and she's the one, Kim, the rest, they're just moron pawns in this game).

I just find it strange when women love , they love hard, regardless of differences and fights. Look at both of her sister relationships. It must not have been love. She should have never married him. She should have married the one she loved.

Kim - You are a nasty pig. You are on video with some thug getting laid. That makes you a pig.
Your brother Kloe is also a fat cow.
Somehow your ugly mom has become a bigger media whore than you. Bruce is a puppet along for this embarassing ride - although he too is a clown.
Eventually you will see how absolutely disgusting you really are then the cycle of sever depression will set it - it is inevitable.
The entire Kardashian franchise was born because of a filthy video that slutbag Kim made.....
How honorable.

And I LOVE this bit from TMZ:

"As we previously reported, there was a lot of bickering between Kim, Kris and the lawyers during the prenup negotiations -- something that is not a marker of a phony marriage."

"Something not a marker of a phony marriage"? It sure as HELL is the HALLMARK of reality TV to get people to watch it! Bickering, will they, won't they, that is EVERYTHING to do with the appeal of the pre-wedding show. And just part and parcel of the sham wedding.

Honestly, not only do the Kardashian Klan and Wasser think people are stupid, now TMZ do too. Lordy, who's paying your bills, TMZ? That comment is either phenomenally naive (not something you're known for) or you're being paid to sway it (something you ARE known for). Cheap, nasty, silly.

Does anyone really question or care about whether or not the marriage was real? Anyone? No? Right. The marriage is being ended, so, it doesn't really matter anymore. Someone should slap that former manager of hers for bring this argument up again.

What's worse. Constant Kim news or constant Spencer/Heidi Pratt news? Thank goodness TMZ is no longer reporting on one of them.

Good riddance!    

Liar and lawyer. Two very similar sounding words. Coincidence? I think not.
