Kim Kardashian lists mum Kris Jenner as witness in divorce trial

10 APRIL 2013

It seems Keeping Up With The Kardashians is headed for the courtroom. Kim Kardashian's reality show will go head-to-head with real life at her divorce trial next month with the news that her mother Kris Jenner and a show producer are being called as witnesses.

Court records show that pregnant Kim's legal team intend to call her mum and manager Kris to the witness stand to testify about her brief marriage to Kris Humphries. Keeping Up With The Kardashian's longtime producer Farnaz Farjam is also on the list, alongside Kim herself and her ex-husband.

Basketball star Kris is seeking an annulment of the pair's 72-day marriage, claiming it was based on fraud.

Papers filed by Kim's lawyer Laura Wasser state that Kim will testify that she "did not defraud (Humphires) into marrying her". Her mother Kris is expected to show "communications with the parties regarding their relationship" to corroborate Kim's assertion, and Farnaz has also been listed to show that "no conspiracy to defraud" the NBA star existed.

Kim will also provide "reasons why the parties' marriage should be dissolved and not annulled" — as Kris has requested — and she will also testify about their pre-nuptial agreement.

Her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, and her new man Kanye West — who she is expecting a baby with in July — are not listed as probable witnesses.

Kris' witness list, meanwhile, has not yet been filed.

Last week, a judge refused Kim's request to move the start of her divorce trial from 6 May. In court documents, Laura Wasser "respectfully requests the trial start one day earlier… and that there be no trial on May 6 due to (Kim's) unavailability. Kim Kardashian has a previously scheduled engagement in New York on May 6."

However, the judge sided with Kris' lawyer, Benjamin Johnson, who argued that 'Counsel for Petitioner Kimberly Kardashian specifically requested the May 6 trial start date back in February."

Kim and Kris have been arguing over how to end their short marriage since October 2011. They tied the knot in a lavish and widely-publicised ceremony in August 2011, which featured in a two-part special on the reality show.
