Kris Humphries Seeking Annulment From Kim Kardashian (Report)
The NBA player submits papers in Superior Court a month after his estranged wife filed for a divorce only 72 days into their marriage.
Kris Humphries has reportedly filed for an annulment from Kim Kardashian, his wife of 72 days.
The NBA player filed papers Wednesday in Superior Court, checked off the box reading "nullity of voidable marriage" and another saying the reason is "fraud," People reported.
The papers also say that if he isn't granted an annulment, he wants a legal separation instead of a divorce.
According to California law, an annulment can only be granted under one of eight conditions: incest, bigamy, underage spouse who didn't obtain parental consent, previous existing marriage or domestic partnership, unsound mind, fraud, force or incapacity, where the spouse is physically unable to consummate the marriage.
Kardashian filed for divorce Oct. 31.
"After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage," Kardashian said in a statement at the time. "I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best."
The couple were married Aug. 20 after a whirlwind six-month romance. Among the 400 guests at their lavish Montecito wedding were Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, Kathy Lee Gifford, Mel B, George Lopez and Serena Williams.
The only cameras allowed inside during the ceremony were from E! Entertainment, which aired a two-part wedding special on Oct. 9 and 10.
The Hollywood Reporter reported that exclusive photos of Kardashian's wedding to Humphries were sold to People for $1.5 million, according to insiders. The glossy paid $300,000 to the couple for their engagement announcement in May. British magazine OK! paid $100,000 for the exclusive bridal shower coverage. It wasn't just the wedding photos that the pair made out in the black on. Everything from Kardashian's 20.5 carat wedding ring (worth $2 million), day-of-hair ($150,000) and Lehr & Black crystal-embellished invitations ($10,000), were received via discount (or just for free), THR reported.
