Kim Kardashian’s lawyer: Kim is ‘handcuffed’ to Kris Humphries

Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian departing from Fort Lauderdale airport two days ago, catching a flight to Kuwait. Kim is in the Middle East right now! You know why? She’s promoting her milkshakes. Literally. She’s doing photo ops and promotion for Millions of Milkshakes. I can only guess that the money is fantastic. Funnily enough, Kim wore this same sheer blouse when she arrived in Kuwait, and she even wore this outfit to meet the American ambassador to Kuwait. Because of course. She’s all class!

Meanwhile, did you know that Kim and Kris Humphries are STILL married? True story. And Kim is super-pissed about it too. Her lawyer just released a bitchy statement about how long this is taking:

More than a year after divorce papers were filed, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are still unhappily married in the eyes of the law. Now, Kardashian’s lawyer says the reality star wants a trial ASAP to bring the ordeal to an end.

“Ms. Kardashian is now handcuffed to Kris Humphries,” her A-list attorney Laura Wasser told an L.A. Superior Court judge Wednesday. “These delays are forcing her to be married. She wants to dissolve her marriage so she can move on with her life. I don’t think [Kris] has a case, it’s a fishing expedition.”

Added Wasser to PEOPLE outside the courtroom: “We want a trial because that’s the only way this will end. There was no fraud.”

Humphries’s attorneys have been gathering evidence to prove their claim the 72-day union was based on fraud, going so far as to depose Kardashian’s mother, her wedding planner and even her current boyfriend Kanye West. Humphries, who is seeking an annulment (typically used to clear one’s marital record, often for religious reasons), has claimed in documents that Kardashian “had no intent of being married” and that it was all “for the benefit of her TV show.”

“All she has to do is agree to an annulment [based on fraud],” his attorney Marshall Waller said in court.

Waller expressed frustration that “third parties” involved in the case have been slow to surrender evidence, including those involved in the production of Kardashian’s show.

“These are people who are hard to locate,” Waller said, who added that private investigators are seeking out desired witnesses.

Asked outside the courtroom if a trial was inevitable, Humphries’s attorney told PEOPLE, “Every case is capable of settling before trial.”

The judge set a Feb. 15 hearing date to determine when a trial might begin.

I know many of you are on Team Basketball Humphries, but I just can’t get on board. I think Humphries is an idiot, and I think his grudge against Kim is particularly immature. He’s still pissed off that he came across like an idiot on the Kardashian show, and that Kim could dump him with such ease. Don’t get me wrong, Kim’s an idiot too, and she’s totally at fault as well. But she’s an idiot who wants to move on and put this whole mess to bed. Humphries just looks so petty and vindictive.

Oh, and apparently Kris’s lawyer deposed Kanye West too. That must have been awesome. Ten bucks says ‘Ye lied under oath about when his sexual relationship with Kim began.

    well, her marriage was a sham so, admit it and be done with it.. they’re both idiots..

  2. Skipper says:

    He’s getting revenge in an ironic way

  3. GossipG says:

    he should just take a saw, and go to work.(cut off the hadcuffs)

  4. Agnes says:

    They’re both idiots, but I sympathize with him more. She’s a professional fraud and hustler – he seemed to have little idea as to what he was getting himself into. Bless his heart.

  5. Jennika says:

    Kim keeps pushing back her deposition date and won’t release her finances to the court!!! She is trying everything not to go to court, since this was a fraud marriage and she probably is being sketchy with the money. I don’t care how long it takes, I want Kris Humphries to bring this bitch down!!

  6. Eleonor says:

    Her divorce is lasting more than her marriage, I find this quite amusing.
    They are two idiots.I think it will end with HUGE check signed pimp mama to Kris.

    • Evelyn says:

      That’s EXACTLY what I thought when I read this! Their divorce has *literally* lasted five times as long as their marriage, and twice as long as their relationship.
      I think Hump is fighting a war he can’t win. Neither of them are bright but Kim has a lot more money and probably many more (and much smarter) people helping her handle this

  7. Sisi says:

    all she has to do is agree witht he annulment and she’s rid of him

  8. alex says:

    They are both idiots. But if KK just agreed to the annulment months ago, this whole thing would have been over then. She didn’t want the annulment because it would have proved the marriage was a sham. She kept all the gifts and still won’t give the ring back. And she has dragged KH name through the mud and tried to make it look like he was abusive to her on the show.

    If she really wanted to be done with all of this, she would sign the annulment papers.

  9. Dawn says:

    Here’s the deal, if she wants out, it’s simple, give the man an annulment. She knew she didn’t love him when she married him, she knew she had no intention of staying in the marriage before she married him and come on truth be told almost everyone here knew it too. Was Kris Humphries an idiot to marry her? You bet he was and I would also wager that no one knows that better than him now. But in my eyes the real idiot is Kim who believes that she has the right to do whatever she wants for money and that people will always forgive her and love her but most importantly of all PAY her. I say hang in there Kris and do whatever you need to do to pin this fake, phony bitch down. Again if idiot yucky Kim wants out, sign the annulment papers.

  10. Redheadwriter says:

    I think they’re both idiots, with Kim taking a much larger lead on things. But that said, if Kris was such a shark and so fame hungry, how come we never see or hear from him now? The only time his name pops up is from Kim. If she wanted this divorce to be done, she’s got the money and power to have made that happen a long, long time ago.

  11. dorothy says:

    Sign annulment papers, give the ring back and shut up. End of story.

  12. kimcheee says:

    Kris actually makes Kim look like she’s Mensa. He is DUMB, arrogant and a spoiled little boy. He must be hung. Why else would Kim put up with him?

  13. Dea says:

    Gotta love these lawyers for using the word “handcuffed”
    I would imagine Kim handcuffed while having sex but not under this situation. She has been with Kanye as soon as she got separated (if not before then) and she is crying over the long divorce case because she wants to have another marriage so she can make money out of Kanye. She knows he is loaded so Pimp Kris is drafting a nice nuptial for her daughter.
    Kim is a trash and I hope this case goes to trial on Feb 15th as the court had noted.

  14. hoya_chick says:

    They both suck. I don’t care about this story but seeing it reminded me that Basketball Humphries got beat up last night in Boston. Lol! Go Celtics. Too bad Rajon got ejected. It pains my heart that I live in Brooklyn and love Basketball but cannot even muster anything other than a ‘meh’ when it comes to the Nets.

  15. Dani says:

    They’re both SO dumb but it’s actually stated somewhere (trying to find it) that he spent almost a years basketball contract on her engagement ring. Dude only makes like $7 mil a year (or used to), just give it back you hustlin’ HO. And besides that, I don’t blame him for doing this to her. Almost immediately after they filed for divorce she went for Kanye. I know it’s hard to have class in that family, but everyone knows her marriage was a fraud. I really think he thought she loved him…he clearly isn’t that bright.

  16. judyjudy says:

    Of course the whole marriage was a sham. I don’t understand why they are allowed to drag it out like this.

  17. says:

    I agree that if Kim really wanted to move on with her life, she should have signed the annulment papers. But no, she doesn’t want to admit the truth that she married Kris for the wedding, gifts, and the endorsement money. Kris is ruined forever; the only way he’s going to live down that he was Mr. Kim Kardashian with some kind of dignity is if he erases that marriage off the record.

  18. Sweet Dee says:

    Kaiser, does that mean you don’t think that Kim defrauded Kris or that he’s just so stupid that he didn’t see it coming and is hanging on too long to the grudge? Clarification, please.

    I have a hard time with any sane individual thinking she was in it for wuv from the start and not ratings, even if it was all orchestrated by the pimp mama.

  19. MsGoblin says:

    Traveling to an Islamic country wearing a see-through blouse – way to go, Kimmy. You’re a respectful, class-act.

    Good thing Kuwait does not observe Sharia law; she’d be arrested for sure.

  20. KellyinSeattle says:

    I never heard….are they diet milkshakes or what? And she’ll get a video of anything she’s handcuffed to, anything for more attention.

  21. Happyhat says:

    Sometimes I think celebs only get married and divorced in Hollywood because secretly VH1 pays them so they can make those “50 Most Shocking Celebrity Divorces” shows.

    I wish they’d hurry up, because I’ve seen the same batch of “50 most shocking…” programs loads of times and they’re all out of date.

    Come on people, get a move on!

  22. TheEntrepreneursWife says:

    Setting aside the fact that an annulment would be an admission that the marriage was fraudulent, which would hurt her with her fan base, wouldn’t an annulment also invalidate the pre-nup? Then she would have to write him a HUGE check. She may not have the (liquid) cash. Seems like she spends spends spends to keep up with appearances.

  23. stephanie says:

    well, she was a dumbass to not get a better prenup, and frankly, I don’t care if humpheries takes her for all she’s worth. that’s what you get for getting married just to make millions on national TV. what a load of unbelievable bullshit.

  24. Lola says:

    She’s just a scank-ho! Expose her Kris for the money grubbing dumb ho that she is. Yuk, I can’t stand the thought of … Kim K.

  25. lady X says:

    Ok let me help you all out…. Kim does not want to sign the annulment because he signed a confidentiality agreement… if the marriage is deem null and void or that it never happened.. which is what annulment is …then he is free to talk about the sham of a marriage and how the whole thing is for tv ratings… and there are people out there who actually still believe she loved him and it was real LOL…. also Kris did not buy that ring… the network did… he was way too much of a cheap skate and was concerned about her spending while they were together …. at that time he only made $3million a year and had no endorsements… no jeweler in their right might with the economy the way it is would have given him a loan for that amount… the ring was $2 million

  26. floridaseaturtle says:

    Handcuffed? is her analogy? Really? Um, no, she is a *! that doesn’t like parting with money. I can envision her wearing a wide handcuff belt as long as it was in gold lame’ and leopard. Next, from the kartrashian kollection.
