Lawyers wrangle in Kardashian split

Lawyers wrangle in Kardashian split

Lawyers for reality TV star Kim Kardashian’s estranged husband want to interview her mother and current boyfriend, singer Kanye West, before setting a trial to end the couple’s 72-day marriage.

A judge says the legal manoeuvring means it is likely to be at least next year before the couple are granted a divorce or an annulment, as NBA player Kris Humphries desires.

The pace drew derision from Kardashian’s attorney, Laura Wasser, who told the judge during a hearing today that her firm has already spent $250,000 on the case.

Ms Wasser says she will be billing Humphries for the work.

Humphries’ attorney, Marshall Waller, says he is encountering difficulty getting information from companies that produce Kardashian’s reality shows in his effort to prove the couple’s marriage was a fraud.

The couple’s divorce petition was filed in October.
