Kim Kardashian On Kris Humphries Divorce: Reality Star Wants Ex-Hubby To Pay Lawyer's Bill

Can't Kris Humphries just move on already?

In conjunction with legal handlings that have been drawn out since their October 2011 separation, Kim Kardashian is now saying she wants ex-husband Kris Humphries to pay for her hefty attorney fees.

Because Humphries refuses to officially divorce Kardashian unless she acknowledges his claims that their marriage was a fraud, there's a chance the couple technically will still be married at the time the reality star gives birth to her and boyfriend Kanye West's baby in June -- and Kardashian is none too pleased about that.

But while people close to Humphries reportedly are urging him to settle the case and walk away, Kardashian is demanding that the Nets player take care of her lawyer's bill after putting her through this ordeal for a year and a half.

Sources tell TMZ that Kardashian has no immediate plans to marry West, nor does she feel the need to in order to validate having his baby. But, at the very least, Kardashian says she does not want to be married to another man at the time of the birth.

TMZ reports that no evidence has been presented that legitimizes Humphries' claims. Kardashian feels her 72-day former flame is being "spiteful and vindictive."

If the two don't settle the case, a judge will set a trial date next month. That date may not come until after June because of Humphries' basketball schedule. TMZ reports that Kardashian's lawyer, Laura Wasser, predicts the trial would last all of one day, whereas Humphries' lawyer expects more like five days.
