In To Be Out: Gay Celebrities
MIAMI (CBSMiami/CBS) — From televised wedding to bitter divorce, Kris Humphries, soon to be Kim Kardashian’s ex-hubby, apparently wants a televised divorce as well.
Kardashian and Humphries split last October after an over-the-top televised wedding held 72 days earlier. But now sources say Humphries and his attorney, Lee Hutton, want to televise the divorce trial.
An insider tells TMZ they want to “expose the M.O. of reality TV” by trying to prove that Kardashian didn’t want to stay together and was going through with the ceremony to get ratings for her E! reality show.
But Kardashian wants none of it. A source told RadarOnline.com the TV star’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, is formally petitioning for a private mediator – without a camera in sight.
“Kim doesn’t want a long drawn out trial,” an insider told the website. “She wants the mediation to be private, confidential, and legally binding. She and Kris have no assets together and kept separate bank accounts, so this is a fairly routine divorce proceeding. Kim just wants this over and done with.”
Kardashian filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.” Humphries, though, has called fraud and wants to annul the marriage.
