Kim Kardashian - Kanye West Wanted For Deposition In Kim Kardashian's Divorce Battle

Lawyers want Kim Kardashian's new boyfriend Kanye West to testify in her ongoing divorce battle with estranged husband Kris Humphries.
The socialite split from the basketball star in October (11) after just 72 days of marriage and they have been locked in bitter legal wrangling ever since, with Humphries claiming Kardashian used the nuptials as a publicity stunt to boost her earnings.
The case went to court in Los Angeles on Wednesday (15Aug12) and during the hearing, Kardashian's attorney, Laura Wasser, told Judge Stephen Moloney about a summons which Humphries' lawyers attempted serve on West.
Wasser claims an order calling him for a deposition was left in a box from U.S. store Nordstrom outside Kardashian's house and she complained about the legal team's tactics, saying "A strange individual (was) outside my client's house (saying) he had a box for Mr. West."
Humphries' lawyer Marshall Waller insisted they only went to such lengths because West's attorneys have failed to return their calls.
He told Los Angeles Superior Court, "Our process server rang the doorbell and amazingly she (Kardashian) answered... He asked if (West) was present, and she said he was on the telephone. If Mr. West's attorney ever calls us back, we'll be happy to have a talk. But as a practical matter, that hasn't happened. We're jumping through hoops. We'll probably have to serve him in public."
During the hearing, Wasser also insisted she was unhappy with the slow pace of the proceedings as the socialite "just wants to be divorced" and has already paid more than $250,000 (£156,250) in legal fees.
She told the judge, "To say I am frustrated is an understatement. I'm at a loss to figure out what the holdup is. They had a pre-nup and were married (for) 72 days."
The divorce now looks unlikely to be granted until 2013. The judge ordered both sides to return to court on 28 November (12) for a progress hearing.
