During a Tuesday deposition, Kim Kardashian stated that she truly loved Kris Humphries when she said, "I do."
Kris Humphries has accused Kim Kardashian of staging her entire marriage to him for the sake of a publicity stunt. On Tuesday, Kardashian denied those claims.
Under oath, the reality star testified that she "really did love" Humphries when she agreed to marry him, according to TMZ. The site reported that the deposition lasted for about nine hours and took place at the office of Kardashian's lawyer. But Humphries didn't show up, even after his lawyer argued in court that he "deserved to be there," TMZ reported.
Members of Humphries' family have also suggested that Kardashian's marriage was not legitimate and supported Humphries' attempts to have the marriage annulled.
"[The wedding] was a sham," Humphries aunt Dedria said during an interview with The Sun U.K. She also said that it was time for Kardashian to own up.
"An annulment says it wasn't valid in the first place. She should admit that it was a sham at the very least," Deidra added.
Humphries "fraud" claims were disputed when footage of his proposal to Kardashian was discovered. The original footage, which was obtained by Life & Style magazine, was re-done for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" because Kim was "so surprised" she didn't like her reaction.
Some suggested, however, that the proposal was not a surprise at all.
"Kim told Kris how, where and when to propose, it was absolutely no surprise to her whatsoever," a source told Radar Online.
"First of all, Kris proposed in the middle of the day, and he had to do that because it would create better lighting to capture the moment. Kim looked so surprised but she knew it was happening," the source added. "She was in full hair and make-up, as she always is on the show. Kris wanted it to be very intimate and romantic, but all of his ideas were shot down by production officials and Kim."
Kardashian has been attempting to divorce Humphries for over a year and a half. She is currently pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West. The couple has been dating for about a year; the baby is due this summer.
