Kardashian: Divorce will refresh life
Kim Kardashian has reportedly asked a court magistrate to speed her divorce proceedings with Kris Humphries because she wants to create a “new, full life” with Kanye West.
The reality TV star wed basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011 but they split up after just 72 days of marriage.
After Kim filed for divorce, proceedings have been dragging ever since.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, Kim urges the magistrate to speed up the process because it “will help create a new, full life for me”.
The 32-year-old is pregnant with her first child with boyfriend Kanye West. The longtime friends began dating last year.
Kim claims the stress of stringing out her divorce is also threatening “the health and well-being of my unborn child”.
She also says Kanye is “eager to sign a Voluntary Declaration of Paternity when their child is born,” but won’t be able to do so if she is still married to Kris, according to the outlet.
Kim is due to give birth in July.
The documents have been revealed on the heels of an apparent warning from Kim’s doctor that the stress of her divorce could impact the foetus and have potential “long-term effects” for her child.
TMZ reported yesterday Kim called her physician in the middle of the night several days ago as she was experiencing “severe pains”.
According to the website, the medical expert examined her but concluded most of her symptoms were stress-related.
Sources claim the only “significant stress” in the star’s life is her divorce.
Kris Humphries’ lawyer Marshall Waller meanwhile submitted documents released earlier this week claiming that his client will not speed up the divorce due to Kim’s “unplanned pregnancy”.
"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,” attorney Marshall’s papers read.
The parties are reportedly working out scheduling conflicts for Kim’s upcoming deposition.
The case continues.
