Kris Humphries' Lawyer

Kris' Annulment Claim

TOTAL BS

EXCLUSIVE

0215_lawyer_kris_01
Even Kris Humphries' soon-to-be ex-lawyer thinks Kris is abusing the legal system by fighting for an annulment from Kim Kardashian ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with Kris tell TMZ ... attorney Marshall Waller made it clear to his client ... there are NO legal grounds for annulling his marriage to Kim, because there's absolutely NO evidence of fraud.

Our sources say Waller and Kris reached an impasse ... because Kris' out-of-state attorney, Lee Hutton won't budge from the whole annulment thing.  So, as TMZ first reported, Waller filed legal docs Thursday asking the judge to get him the hell out of the case.

And get this ... In Waller's motion to be relieved as counsel, he zings Kris by saying they have "irreconcilable differences" -- EXACTLY the grounds for a garden-variety divorce. 

One final thing ... lawyers for Kim and Kris are in court this morning, and as we previously reported, Kim's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, will demand a trial date as early as next month.  The question now -- will Kris argue that since he just lost his California lawyer, he needs more time? 

If the judge buys Kris' rather lame argument, it will be the 4th time the judge would have delayed the trial for a 72-day marriage that effectively ended nearly a year-and-a-half ago.

Kris H deserves the annulment. How does TMZ get away with being a Kardashian advocate? Makes me want to stop watching TMZ. Every time I here Harvey praising the K's I sink...Yuk.... Harvey does Kris Jenner really have that much power over you? Is her $ & power worth that much to you?

Ya know, lawyers=liars. And this one seems to be the lawyer from Hades. AH is covering his A$$ because he's probably on a contingency basis, and Humphries probably fired him for incompetence.

Or he quit with payoff and extra money for lying. He figures if he violates attorney/client privilege (for which he should be disbarred, even though he's lying through his teeth) or accepts the bribe from the Ks, that he looks good. Lying sack of . . . well you know.

No lawyer, for any reason, is permitted to (or should, by ethics) talk good or bad, about ex-clients whether they are fired or quit, win or lose.

I'd suggest that NO ONE go to that lawyer! Clearly, he's a real dirtbag.

I'm totally in Team Kris.


but


This is another Lohan type tactic..


Lawyer fires client. New lawyer comes on board and asks for furtherance.


Wide Load Kraptashian squirms some more.


I hope he is able to delay it until she gives birth. If she really is pregnant.

Regardless if Kris is legally correct or not I applaud him for the angst and expense he is creating for the Kartrashians. Lawyers salivate thinking about the money they make litigating for idiots.They should be waiting on tables in my opinion.

TMZ's bias is gross. They will always lick Kardashian boots because Harvey believes TMZ made Kim. Gee, thanks, TMZ for making Kim happen.

TMZ always sides with s*** bags like Kim Kardashian, Scientolgists, Halle Berre, because they are the PR firm for sleazeballs who leak information to them. And no matter their spin it won't help the celebs because everyone knows the people behind TMZ are moral garbage.

Remind me why does Kim care if there's an annulment to this sham marriage that lasted 72 DAYS??? Embarrassment??? Ego???

I'd rather admit it was an ill conceived publicity stunt then acknowledge i was stupid enough to marry i guy i couldn't even live with for 72 days before filing for divorce. I mean it was HER that filed for divorce right!?!? So now we have to listen to this dumb **** whine about how long the divorce is taking because her ego won't let her take the easy way out, throw the ring and some money at him, give him an annulment and MOVE THE FVCK ON ALREADY!

Jesus Christ.... 1rst world problems of the mega rich and famous!
