Radar Online has learned that Kim Kardashian wants to give NBA star Kris Humphries an annulment. Sources told the gossip site on Jan. 17, the 32-year-old wants to move on with her life, but her mother and manager, Kris Jenner, will not allow her daughter to dissolve the marriage.
According to the report, Jenner fears that an annulment – which would be on the grounds that the marriage to Humphries was fraudulent – could be damaging to the Kardashian brand.
“Kim has made it known that she is ready to give Kris an annulment because she just wants to move on with her life. If she doesn’t give an annulment, Kim will be forced to testify at a trial after her baby is born this summer, which is the last thing she will want to do,” an insider told Radar Online exclusively.
“Kim’s baby daddy, Kanye West, doesn’t understand why she hasn’t already just given Kris the annulment. Kim’s momager, Kris Jenner is adamantly protesting to her daughter’s idea because of the possible ramifications it could have for the Kardashian empire. Kris is concerned about the negative press and criticism Kim will get if she goes through with it. Kris’ main concern is how E! would react to Kim’s decision since the network aired their wedding special,” the source added.
Kardashian has denied marrying Humphries under fraudulent pretenses. The mom-to-be has maintained that she loved her husband, but she pulled the plug on the relationship because she realized he was not the right person for her.
“He was someone that I loved a lot, but you can love someone a lot and then realize they are not the right person for you,” she said. “And I would have rather ended it when I felt that way then waste a year of my life not being happy. For him too.”
Insiders tell the website, boyfriend and superstar rapper Kanye West says, “it’s time for Kim to pull away from reality television. Kanye just wants Kim to be happy and feels that she should do whatever it takes to just end this marriage.”
