Kris Humphries' attorney, Marshall Waller, is reportedly no longer representing the NBA star in his divorce battle against Kim Kardashian due to alleged differences.
Waller, who recently severed his relationship with Humphries, cited "irremediable breakdown of the attorney-client relationship" in court documents. The pair reportedly do not agree on the case, according to TMZ.com.
Humphries, who is insisting on an annulment of his 72-day marriage to Kardashian as opposed to her request for a divorce, is still represented by his Minnesota-based attorney Lee Hutton. However, he will now need to hire a new California-based attorney.
"Kris' case will be very simple and straightforward. He believes the key to proving that the marriage was fraudulent lies in the production and filming of the Kardashian reality shows," a source reportedly told RadarOnline.com.
"The only way that this case won't go to trial is if Kim publicly apologizes to Kris and admits that she only married him for television ratings. Kris just wants the truth to come out and Kim is just absolutely livid that she isn't getting her own way," a separate source previously explained.
Humphries, 28, reportedly believes that his 72-day marriage to Kardashian, 32, was a sham to boost publicity and generate revenue for the reality TV star. She has consistently denied the allegations.
Humphries was featured as the groom on the E! reality TV show special "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event," which aired the over-the-top lavish wedding in 2011. The reality TV star, who is now expecting a child with rapper Kanye West, reportedly raked in $17.9 million through filming and allegedly by selling photo rights to People magazine, according to The New York Post.
"Kris says that just before filming began on the fourth season of 'Kourtney & Kim Take New York,' he started to have boxes of his belongings shipped from Minnesota to Kim's house in Los Angeles ... she began freaking out ... he was stunned by her reaction ... he subsequently decided to stay in Minnesota longer than he had originally planned because of it," a source said.
"[Kris] claims, a short time later, Kim began to bombard him with text messages and phone calls ordering him to come back to New York and be with her because filming was about to start. Kris says he couldn't believe it … here was his new wife losing her mind because he was having stuff sent to her house in California, but then she has no problem pressuring him to return to NYC for the show!" the source explained.
