NBA star Kris Humphries is seeking to erase his marriage to Kim Kardashian from the record. The 26-year-old wants to annul his 72-day marriage to reality star Kim Kardashian, 31 , on the grounds of fraud, and filed the papers today.
According to People Magazine, his Superior Court filing is seeking an annulment instead of a divorce on the basis of 'fraud.' According to California law, a nullity is granted if the court finds that no valid marriage ever took place. Along with fraud, grounds for an annulment include bigamy, incest, force or if the couple are under the age of consent.
Humphries's papers say that if he's not granted an annulment then he wants a legal separation and not a divorce under any circumstances. The basketball star agrees on the date of separation, however, which he also lists as October 31. However, annulments can be difficult to obtain, with a legal expert telling the publication that he will likely have to prove that fraud was actually committed.
Kim is telling her friends that she absolutely loved Kris and the marriage just fell apart, so it is unlikely that an annulment will be granted.. Whatever tha case, It could mean the pair will end up in a bitter court battle.
