Kim Kardashian will finally have her day in court for her long awaited divorce trial, but she won’t even there for it !
TMZ.com reports that Kim has been excused from having to attend the first day of her divorce proceedings next month. Kim filed for divorce from her estranged husband Kris Humphries on Halloween 2011 after just 72 days of marriage, and she’s been fighting to haul him into court ever since. He’s held up the case over his demands that Kim admit that their marriage was a sham. This is why he’s seeking an annulment instead of a divorce.
Kim told the court that she has a commitment to appear in New York on May 6, when the divorce trial is set to begin, so that she can promote her new perfume. Originally, Kim’s legal team filed documents asking that a judge move the proceedings up to May 3, but the request was denied over scheduling conflicts.
Instead, the judge excused her from having to attend the kick off her divorce proceedings. Since Kris claims that he was unwittingly coaxed into a marriage that was fake from the beginning, he has the burden of proof. His team will be calling witnesses to the stand first, and Kim won’t have to show up until two or three days into the trial.
This is good news Kim, who was recently spotted shopping for baby clothes in Paris with babydaddy Kanye West.
