(LOS ANGELES) — In the latest in Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ divorce proceedings, the reality star is claiming that the lengthy court negotiations are harming her baby.
TMZ reports that Kardashian filed new legal documents claiming the slow divorce process is hindering her health and “…the health and well-being of my unborn child.” She also said she wants to speed up the divorce process as it “will help create a new, full life for me.”
In an earlier report, TMZ claimed that Humphries was in no rush to finalize the divorce.
In a court filing obtained by the website, a lawyer for the Brooklyn Nets basketball player argued, “What is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something [Humphries] had nothing to do with, is perceived by [Kim] as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial.”
The attorney reportedly also wondered, “Indeed, why would [Kim] plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?”
Kardashian initially filed for divorce in late October of 2011, 72 days after she tied the knot with Humphries.
