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.

"Why should he give in Kim K? I believe that she frauded him into marrying her. On another note..ANY classy women knows, if you called off the wedding or marriage and the ring is that expensive, you give it back."
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
It's about the engagement ring, she bought it herself from her people at a discount, K.Hump wants half the value because he says it's community property, but community property law doesn't start until AFTER the marriage, she bought it BEFORE they were married.
As for "giving in to Kim", she'll never be his wife no matter how long it takes for divorce to go through, all that's going to happen is he's going to have to pay ALL her legal bills, which is why I think his lawyer is quitting, because K.Hump won't take his advice and as a result K.Hump is giong to have to pay Kim millions.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
That's the whole nut in a shell, K.Hump and his fans are out to "get Kim" and are attempting to use the Courts to hurt her, NOT because she hurt any of you, and not even because she didn't anything to hurt K.Hump, IT'S ALL BECAUSE HE WANTS TO HURT KIM, and in my book that's grounds for divorce!

How is it possible that people - especially a lawyer - would say there's "no proof of fraud?" If anyone took a few hours of their lives to watch the show that season (... but if you can avoid it, I recommend it) you'll see Kim saying that she realized before the wedding that she wasn't sure about it, and then after they were married you see them having conversations about having kids and Kim's all for it... and then we see her going on birth control without speaking to her husband about it. Her husband who thought they were in the process of trying to have a baby. THAT right there is fraud. TWICE ... on national TV ... she was caught lying to him.

All the Trashians had to do was take one of their lawyers and get them to ask to "retain" Kris lawyer for one of their "corporations", they would say something like "If you can free yourself from previous obligations we would like to put you on retainer", everything is "understood". Basically you hire a lawyer to just be available and you can put up a cash retainer, lets say $1 million dollars. Now Kris lawyer is on retainer for something like "Whatever Inc" which is an extension of one of their corporations or they can form a new corp and because the lawyer is now under retainer with them he does not talk about it because of client attorney privilege. There is no direct linkage to the Trashians, Kris lawyer finds a reason to walk away from Kris and he gets a cool million for doing nothing. That's how it could happen.

Oh TMZ your concern for Kim is shown all through this biased one sided article. Poor Kimmie, nothing is ever her fault. Everyone is so mean to her. Kris hang in there until the bitter end. And tmz what makes you think this lawyer didnt do this so Kris CAN be granted another delay. Lets face it, honor and truthfulness from lawyers is an oxymoron.

Oh really? What about all that un-edited footage from the show, which you have so far refused to share? THAT is where the evidence is - but you are keeping it from the courts!
-
Kris has EVERY right to fight for an annulment, because Kim DID defraud him into marriage. Period.

TMZ doing their best to continue as their position as un-official spokesperson for the Kardashian family. I would all but guarantee this source close to Humphries is Kris Kardashian. The attorney would not disclose anything in the motion regarding his discussions with the client because it is privileged information and he would be disbarred for it.

Canye bought her a $69,800. bracelet for V. Day? Are you sure she didn't pay for it herself,(like the said engagement ring)? She likes to pretend that she is Elizabeth Taylor-never going to happen, girl. Get a grip on "reality".

Yeah its time for Kris H to let it go. He got his point across. The marriage was a shame. Just by all the episodes before the marriage you knew it wasn't going to last long. Even when Scott had to ask her you do know your married don't you that said it all right there :)
