There’s chatter that Kris Humphries is holding up his divorce from Kim Kardahsian out of sheer spite.
The New York Daily News reports that Kim and Kris probably won’t be able to settle their divorce until at least June. With Kim expecting to welcome her baby with Kanye West some time that month, it looks like their child will be born while she’s still technically married to Kris.
According to one insider, Kris wouldn’t have it any other way.
“They can’t go to court until his basketball season is over, so he tells people that he is in control of her misery," a source told the Daily News. "When he found out about the baby, he was bragging to all of his friends that he wasn’t going to ‘allow’ her to be divorced when she had the baby."
Kim and Kris are slated to set a date for their divorce trial on February 15. Kim is supposedly devastated with the timing, but that doesn’t mean she’ll give in to Kris’ demand that she admit their marriage was nothing more than a reality TV stunt.
"She would never," a source close to Kim reportedly said. “She wants to end all ties with Kris ASAP!” Not only does Kris want Kim to state that their union was a sham, he also wants her to return the $2 million engagement ring he got her. Supposedly, she seems intent on keeping it and Kris seems determined to drag out their divorce proceedings, which have now lasted nearly seven times longer than their actual marriage.
"He intends to tell his attorney when they set a trial date next month that he can’t do it until late summer. It’s all planned and calculated," the first insider said.
Kris himself has yet to comment on the matter publicly.
