LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Kim Kardashian has a due date for her baby and now a trial date for her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries.
A judge on Friday set a May 6 trial for the reality TV star who wants to end her marriage before July, when her child with Kanye West is due.
Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31, 2011, after she and Humphries had been married just 72 days. Their lavish, star-studded nuptials were recorded and broadcast.
Humphries wants the marriage annulled based on his claim that Kardashian only married him for the sake of her show. She denies that allegation.
The trial could reveal details about Kardashian’s reality show empire, which includes “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and several spinoffs.
Two judges determined Friday that Humphries’ lawyers had adequate time to prepare for the trial.
Humphries’ attorney Marshall Waller asked for a delay until basketball season is over, but that was rejected.
Waller filed paperwork Thursday to withdraw from the case but didn’t mention that development in court and refused to answer any questions about the document on Friday.
Waller said he was still hoping to obtain and review 13,000 hours of footage from Kardashian’s reality shows to try to prove the fraud claim but noted he does not yet have an agreement to receive the footage.
