London: Basketball player Kris Humphries has accused estranged wife Kim Kardashian of trying to use her 'unplanned pregnancy' to speed up their divorce battle.
Humphries, who married to Kasrdashian in a failytale ceremony one and half years back, thinks his divorce is being unnecessarily rushed because she is pregnant with her current beau, rapper Kanye West's baby, reported Contactmusic.
The basketball star's lawyer Marshall Waller has filed new documents accusing Kardashian of trying to use the situation to speed up a settlement, stating that his client had nothing to do with her "unplanned pregnancy" and it should have no impact on their litigation.
"What is really going on here is that an urgency in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something (Humphries) had nothing to do with, is perceived by (Kardashian) as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter or trial," a document stated.
The former couple's split has dragged on for more than a year, despite their marriage lasting a mere 72 days because they continue to disagree about how to end their marriage.
Humphries wants an annulment on the grounds of fraud. Kardashian denies that she married him under false pretenses and wants a divorce.
The new documents also state that Humphries is happy to stipulate that he is not the father of Kardashian's baby given they are still legally married and the court might assume he is the father.
Humphries also wants to be present for Kardashian's deposition and has a right to be there, but claims that due to his work schedule he's unavailable until mid-May or June.
