For nine hours on Tuesday, Kim Kardashian faced a chapter of her life that she (and the rest of us) would prefer to forget. TMZ says the stork-awaiting starlet sat for an extended deposition in her attempt to divorce her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries.
During her testimony at the Los Angeles office of her attorney, Lauren Wasser, Kim reportedly denied that TV ratings had anything to do with her decision to tie the knot with the basketball player. She told Humphries' lawyer, Lee Hutton, that she was in love when she accepted his proposal and when she agreed to walk down the aisle in a lavish, E!-filmed ceremony.
Humphries, who was a no-show at the deposition despite his lawyer arguing in court that he had a right to attend, wants their brief union annulled, insisting he was a victim of fraud. Kardashian is eager to be free of him before she gives birth to the fruit of Kanye West's loins.
According to Radar Online, Kris' lawyer focused some of the questioning on whispers that ongoing stress from the divorce proceedings caused Kim to experience a miscarriage scare.
"Kim admitted that it wasn't just the divorce that caused the scare, but rather her very active lifestyle, which has included numerous promotional appearances that require travel," asserts a source. "Kris feels this is yet another ploy by Kim's camp to make him look bad. The only stress Kim is experiencing is temper tantrums because Kris isn't just going to give her a divorce because it's convenient for her."
Although, at this point, is it really convenient for anyone? Kim and Kris committed to stick together forever on August 20, 2011. They called it quits a little more than two months later.
A trial is scheduled for May 6.
