Kim Kardashian

Excused From First Day

Of Divorce Trial

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian is not going to attend the first day of her divorce trial ... but it turns out she's not needed.

Kim has a commitment for an appearance in New York City for her perfume line on May 6, the opening day of her courtroom face-off with Kris Humphries

Kim's lawyer filed legal docs asking the judge to move the trial up to May 3 so she could attend, but the judge wouldn't allow it because of a schedule conflict. 

But sources say the solution is simple.  Kris has the burden of proving fraud in his annulment request, so he's first up in calling witnesses, and Kim won't have to take the stand until day 2 or 3.

Bottom line -- she doesn't have to see Kris' face as much as she feared.

The perfume should be named like J'Adore, by Dior, but it should be called J'abwhore.

Kim so desperate to hang on to Kris so the baby will have a daddy ... Kanye is done with her. Those was the most miserable pair in France over the weekend... And he sent her back to LA alone.

NICE TRY TMZ to SPIN things in the Trash-Kan direction. Your article states that Kim wanted to move the date UP because she had a PREVIOUSLY scheduled event.
.
Now correct me if I'm wrong BUT the MAY 6 trail date was set several weeks ago....and SUDDENLY she remembers her perfume launch date? Sorry Harvey NOT BUYIN' IT.
.
Sounds more like Kimmie wants to hightail it back to GAY Paris!

Inconceivable!    

Kim Humphries wants a divorce SO BADLY instead if an annulment, but she cannot be bothered to be there the first day? Quite an impression she is making on the Divorce Courts!!

I'm guessing that Kanye dumped her on or around March 3rd. On her return to LA on March 8th, the stress from the breakup sent her to the doctors with a miscarriage scare from the stress... And of course they made it out that it was the stress from the divorce and blamed Kris.

another SPIN TMZ? Suddenly she's EXCUSED?
.
I love how you wrote that kim doesnt have to face Kris as she has FEARED.....what is she afraid of? If this is such a slam dunk divorce she should WANT to be there to stare him down, RIGHT?
.
I mean if she did do anything wrong why not destroy him in court....or if she DID defraud him, then find a reason to suddenly run to an event....
.
KEEP TRYIN' Harvey.

WOW KImmie for someone who's demanding a divorce and refusing to agree to an annulment you sure are missing the best day of the trail....why miss the chance to see KH squire on the stand?
.
I have a feeling Miss Kimmie has signed the annulment and will go into hiding (flying back to Paris). Disso-queen Laura will hand the judge the annulment - which will be granted and this will be over.....no hearing no nothing....
