Kim Kardashian - May 6 Court Date Finally Set For Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries Divorce Trial

Could Kim Kardashian finally be getting that divorce she’s been hankering after for so long? Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphies’ marriage is often touted as the infamous ’72 day marriage’ but in actual fact, their marriage technically lasted significantly longer than that. Kim filed for divorce on October 31, 2011. Since then, she’s embarked upon a relationship with Kanye West and is even pregnant with her first child, by him. She is, however, technically still married to basketball player Kris Humphies as that divorce never got processed. However, a court date has finally been set for May 6, 2013, E! Online report today.

Humphries has been the one holding up the divorce proceedings; he maintains that the divorce should be annulled, as Kim only married him for publicity reasons. Sadly, even his own lawyer has given up trying to convince him that fighting the Kardashian clan is a lost cause. He has now left the case, explaining to Kris that there’s not enough evidence to pursue his claims. The trial will be presided over by Judge Scott Gordon, who has pedigree when it comes to overseeing high profile celebrity divorce cases, after overseeing Britney Spears’ split from Kevin Federline, back in 2007.

Initially, Humphries had tried to wriggle out of an earlier court date, citing his basketball schedule as the reason. Kim’s lawyer Laura Wasser was having none of that, though, and nor was Gordon, who reminded him that everybody – including the likes of police officers and firefighters – have to make the time to be available in court. It was made clear that Humphries won’t be getting any special treatment on account of being a sports player. The trial is expected to last for five days.
