As entertaining as it would be, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries will not be representing himself in his Kim Kardashian divorce case.
According to TMZ:
Kris Humphries has filed legal documents in his divorce case, appointing himself as his own lawyer.
Kris wanted his Minnesota business lawyer to rep him in the Kim Kardashian divorce. But in California, an out-of-state lawyer must have a local attorney by his side. So Kris hired a Los Angeles lawyer. But we found out the L.A. lawyer has withdrawn from the case, so the Minnesota lawyer doesn’t have a sponsor anymore. “
A source close to Kris tells RumorFix that Kris changed law firms to strengthen his legal team. The insider tells us that Kris is “taking this [divorce] very seriously,” and will not represent himself in court as other outlets have suggested.
As for claims that Kris’ current Minnesota attorney, Lee Hutton, isn’t afraid of Kim Kardashian’s divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, our source points out that Lee has tried hundreds of cases, and recently made attorney of the year for fraud.
