Kim Kardashian's Lawyer

Kris' Lawyer Is a

LIAR!

2/13/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0212-kim-kardashian-kris-humphries-tmz
Kris Humphries is threatening to destroy Kim Kardashian's reality TV career, unless he gets what he wants in their divorce case ... this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.

Disso queen Laura Wasser complains in new docs ... Humphries' lawyer, Lee Hutton, was LYING when he told the judge he didn't tell her he was on a mission to "blow the lid off reality television"

What's more ... Wasser strongly insinuates Humphries and Hutton have been threatening to use the divorce case to "expose" Kim's show, unless they get money and/or an annulment.  

As for Hutton's threat, Wasser says he bluntly told her, "The Kardashians or Bunim-Murray [producers of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians'] do not want that to happen."

Wasser says Hutton has virtually ignored the divorce ... she says 95% of his deposition questions have been about the ins and outs of Kim's show. Among the questions Hutton asked producers:

  • "Is any aspect of season 6 [which features Humphries] scripted? If so, who maintains those scripts?"
  • "Are storyboards created for season 6?"
  • "It's not uncommon for a producer ... to give direction to cast members during a particular scene, is it?"
  • "Can you tell me who gave direction to the characters for the Bora Bora episode on what topics they should discuss? [The episode in which Kris finds out Kim had previously been married]."

Wasser also calls BS on Humphries' claim he can't deal with his divorce case during basketball season. Wasser says he has plenty of days off, including the upcoming All-Star Game -- which she's certain will not require his participation.

Ouch.

Kim Kardashian to Judge

Help Me Create a

New, Full Life

2/6/2013 11:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0206-kim-kardashian-kris-humphries
Kim Kardashian says she wants a divorce because it "will help create a new, full life for me" ... this according to new legal docs.

Kim filed a declaration in her divorce case obtained by TMZ, complaining to the judge that Kris Humphries is not only standing in the way of her happiness, but threatening her health and welfare, and "also ... the health and well-being of my unborn child." We broke the story, her doctor is concerned as well.

Kim scoffs at Kris' claim she defrauded him in the marriage, and says it's actually Kris who is screwing with her life. She says she wants a divorce so she can move on with her life, and "the same should hold true for [Kris].

Kim notes Kanye is eager to sign a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity when their child is born, but he won't be able to if she's still married to Kris.

And Kim is citing some stories claiming Kris is saying he now has "all the power" and that "he is in control of my misery."

Kim Kardashian's Doctor

Divorce Stress Puts

FETUS AT RISK

Kim Kardashian
's doctor thinks Kim's unborn baby may be at risk, because of the stress Kris Humphries is causing by dragging out their divorce ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... several days ago Kim called her doctor in the middle of the night to come to the house because she was having severe pains.  The doctor examined her, but then warned he believed the problems were largely stress-related.

Sources say ... the only significant stress in her life right now is the divorce.  And hours before her meeting Tuesday with her lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, Kim's pains returned in full force.

The doctor warned Kim she needs to handle the stress or else there could be "long-term effects."  The doctor did not elaborate, but we're told Kim is freaked out her baby may be at risk.

Kim's mom Kris Jenner appeared on "The View" this morning, saying, "Kim has been going through this divorce for months. She has been under a lot of stress because of it and the doctors told her you’ve had a really tough week and the stress could become a problem if she isn't careful."

Kris Humphries

It's Not My Fault

Kim's Pregnancy was Unplanned

2/5/2013 3:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205-kirs-humphries-2
Kris Humphries
just filed legal docs saying he doesn't understand the urgency for a quick divorce, and he shouldn't have to jump just because Kim Kardashian got accidentally knocked up.

Kris' lawyer, Marshall Waller, says in the docs, "What is really going on here is that an 'urgency' in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something [Humphries] had nothing to do with, is perceived by [Kim] as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial."

And get this ... after the word "pregnancy" there's a footnote that reads, "Indeed, why would [Kim] plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?" 

Translation -- Waller thinks Kim is putting a gun to his client's head, which is bizarre because the divorce has dragged on for well over a year for a marriage that lasted 72 days.

Waller says Kim shouldn't worry about the legal presumption that Kris is the father of Kim's kid because she got pregnant while they were still married -- Waller says Kris is happy to stipulate he's not the daddy.

Kris says in the docs he wants to be present for Kim's deposition and has a right to be there, but due to his work schedule he's unavailable until mid-May or June.

We're guessing the judge is going to lose patience at the trial setting conference and set the divorce trial for March.

& Hot Friend Plan Trial Strategy in Divorce

Exclusive Details

In case you're wondering who Kim Kardashian's hot friend is ... well, it's her lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser!

Kim showed up at Wasser's office today, and we're told the two of them are gearing up for a divorce trial against Kris Humphries.

Our sources say Kim isn't even thinking about settling anymore, because Kris has made it clear he wants the case to drag on endlessly, so she spent hours with Wasser going over trial strategy.

As for when the trial will take place ... there's a trial setting conference set for Feb 15, and Wasser has made it clear she wants a trial in March.

If history repeats itself, Kris' lawyer will appear and say Kris needs more time to prepare.  By our count this will be the 4th time Kris' lawyer made the delay argument. The judge has bought it 3 times, but we're guessing this time a trial date will be set.

As for reports that Kim is an emotional wreck because she doesn't want to have her baby while still legally married to Kris -- not so. We're told she's over the whole thing and just wants a divorce so she can get him out of her life.

The Getting Over Kim Tour

Keeps on Rolling

EXCLUSIVE

0202-tmz-kris-humphriesKris Humphries only had one point during last night's Brooklyn Nets game, but saved his real scoring for afterward ... where he landed a hot chick at a NYC nightclub.

Humphries was spotted leaving a club called Finale at around 3:00 AM ... arm-in-arm with a new squeeze. We're told Kris came to the club with a group of friends, but was only talking to this girl all night.

Our spies inside the club say Kris and the girl were very affectionate and dancing together the entire time and Kris went out of his way to avoid pics while inside. After the pics were taken, we're told the pair got into a cab and drove off.

Sources close to Kris tell TMZ they don't know who the girl is, but said she is definitely "not his girlfriend."

Careful Kris, remember your last not-a-girlfriend?

I WON'T PAY YOU SQUAT

YOU GOTTA PAY ME

EXCLUSIVE

0125_kim_kardashian_kris_humphries_article_getty_tmz
Kim Kardashian has drawn a hard line in the sand ... not only is she refusing to pay Kris Humphries a dime ... she's demanding he cover ALL of her attorney's fees ... sources connected to the case tell TMZ.

TMZ first reported ... Kris demanded $7 MILLION to walk away from their marriage ... but Kim told him to pound sand. Contrary to recent reports, Kim has never offered Kris a penny to settle the divorce case.

We know ... Kim's position has always been that Kris actually MADE money by marrying her and therefore she doesn't owe him anything.

But now, our sources say, Kim feels Kris has needlessly dragged this on for so long and it cost her so much $$$ in legal fees and other expenses ... she wants the NBA star to cover those costs.

Sources tell us ... Kim's fees have ballooned to around $250,000 ... and Kris has spent somewhere in the same neighborhood. 

And our sources say ... Kim is more than happy to try the case before a judge, because she's convinced she'll win the divorce and he'll walk away owing her.

I Don't Want Kris Humphries

Around When I Give Birth

1/9/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0108_kanye_kim_kris_getty
Kim Kardashian
does not plan to tie the knot with Kanye West -- at least not yet -- but she is angry and frustrated that Kris Humphries is putting her in a position where she may have a baby with one man while still married to another.

Sources connected to Kim tell TMZ ... she does not feel the need to marry Kanye, even though she's having his baby. But she does not want to be legally married to Kris Humphries when she gives birth. 

Our sources say ... Kim feels Kris is being "spiteful and vindictive" in dragging out the divorce -- which has dragged on for nearly a year-and-a-half -- for no reason. We're told with all the depositions and paperwork, there's been no evidence presented by either side suggesting Kim defrauded Kris when she agreed to marry him.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... people in Kris' life are now urging him to just settle and walk away. But here's the problem ... Both sides have now incurred big attorney's fees, and we're told Kim believes so strongly Kris' legal challenge is so bogus that she wants him to foot her lawyer's bills.

If they can't settle, the judge will set a trial date next month.  Kim's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, estimates a trial would take a grand total of 1 day. Kris' lawyer thinks it's more like 5 days, because he wants to put reality TV on trial.

Stay tuned.

Presumption Is ...

He's the Daddy!!!

1/2/2013 12:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0102_kris_kim_01
They've been separated for more than a year, but that don't matter much in California, where the husband of a pregnant woman is PRESUMED to be the father.

Translation -- Kris Humphries has the edge going in as Kim Kardashian's baby daddy.  If he were to lay claim to the kid, Kim and Kanye would have to present "clear and convincing evidence" to a judge that Kanye did the dirty.

Fact is ... it wouldn't be hard to prove, since Kris hasn't gone near Kim for a long, long time ... and it appears the baby was conceived while Kim and Kanye were in Rome 3 months ago.

Nonetheless, there is a rebuttable presumption in Kris' favor, and Kim of all people should know a thing or two about re-butts.

's got a little Kanye in her -- as in she's pregnant with Kanye West's baby ... according to the rapper himself.

Yeezy dropped the baby bombshell on stage Sunday night in Atlantic City by singing, "God brought us a whole new plan, baby. 'Cause now you're having my baby."

As Kanye went into the next song ... he asked the crowd, "Can we make some noise for my baby mama right quick?"

Our Kardashian sources confirm Kim is 12 weeks pregnant, and apparently several members of the K clan have been sitting on the secret.

Shortly after Kanye's announcement ... Khloe Kardashian tweeted, "Keeping secrets is hard with so many family members! Especially when you are so freaking excited!!!"

Kourtney also tweeted, "Been wanting to shout from the rooftops with joy and now I can."

Had "NO IDEA" Kanye

Was Revealing Pregnancy

12/31/2012 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1230-kim-k-getty-ipadKanye West's on stage announcement that Kim Kardashian is pregnant was a total shock -- to Kim Kardashian ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Kim, who were at the concert, tell us Kim had "no idea" Kanye was going to tell the world she's knocked up. We're told she and Kanye had not discussed announcing it -- and, in fact, had planned to say nothing until she started showing.

According to our sources, Kanye was moved to blab on stage because Kim's BFF and her mom were at the show -- along with several of Kanye's family members.

Kim didn't seem to mind the surprise -- we're told she was crying tears of joy when Kanye revealed they're expecting, and was especially moved because he did it during one of her fave songs ... "Lost in the World."

DEPOSED

In Kim K Divorce

EXCLUSIVE

1128_kanye_West_kim_kardashian_kris_humphries_article_tmz
Kanye West has officially been dragged into the longest, most ridiculous divorce case ever -- Kris Humphries made Kim's rapper/bf sit for a deposition ... TMZ has learned.

Kim's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, is in court right now, essentially asking the judge to make Kris either s**t or get off the pot. As Wasser put it, "She [Kim] is now handcuffed to Mr. Humphries."

Wasser mentioned Kris and his lawyers are now raising issues over the prenup he signed, which we know gives him squat. 

Wasser also expressed frustration that Kris is dragging his feet -- he hasn't even deposed Kim yet.  Wasser calls the whole thing a "fishing expedition."

The judge said he'll set a trial date February 15. Hey, it's the day after Valentine's Day. Sweet.

Friends & Family PISSED

He Lied About Myla

Kris Humphries
' closest friends and family were BLINDSIDED by TMZ's footage of the NBA player hanging out with his ex-girlfriend -- telling us, they now believe Kris is in a full-blown relationship with Myla Sinanaj ... and has been lying about it for months.

If you recall, Kris had sicked the FBI on Myla in the past ... telling the feds she tried to extort him by demanding a large sum of money, or else she'd release damaging information about their relationship to the media.

Kris told friends he was totally done with Myla ... insisting she was nothing more than a one night stand. Now his friends and family know ... he was lying through his pearly white teeth.

Sources connected to Kris' inner-circle tells us ... they had long-suspected he was secretly getting back together with Myla, but the video of the two leaving her home in Jersey together this week is the smoking gun they were waiting for.

091112_humphres_launch
When his inner circle confronted Kris about the TMZ footage, we're told Kris refused to answer any questions ... and changed the subject.

As for Kris' extortion allegations, Myla denied the claim ... and her lawyer even drafted a 26-page defamation lawsuit against the NBA star.

Seems like they've kissed and made up.
