Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries finally have a trial date for their divorce proceedings, but it couldn’t come at a worse time for the basketball star. At the onset of the trial, Humphries is predicted to be playing in the NBA playoffs, according to TMZ on Feb 17.
A judge set the trial for May 6 while the NBA playoffs run from April 20 to June 20. The reality star has been pushing for a quick divorce from Humphries, but the Brooklyn Nets power forward refuses to settle because he wants an annulment on the grounds that she defrauded him.
The website reports the trial could last a few days with Humphries’ options being: Settle the case BEFORE it goes to trial so he can play in the playoffs, play in Playoff games but miss the trial (It can go on without him though it puts him at a handicap), or go to the trial and let his team down.
Sources close to Humphries tell TMZ if Humphries’ team makes the playoffs and a game falls on a trial day he’ll skip the game to appear in court.
Humphries is seemingly willing to put his lofty $24 million NBA contract at risk for a chance to blast Kardashian in court. The website claims that Humphries has nothing to gain financially due to the prenup and the short length of the marriage.
What’s more, Humphries will likely not get the annulment as one of his own lawyers – who reportedly resigned last week due to irreconcilable differences - allegedly revealed there is no evidence of fraud.
Kardashian and Humphries will battle it out in a Los Angeles court starting on May 6.
