Kris Humphries Angers "Furious" Judge, Skips Kim Kardashian Divorce Settlement Hearing
If it's true that 80 percent of success is just showing up, Kim Kardashian is already one victory ahead of Kris Humphries in their ongoing divorce battle. The reality star and her estranged basketball-playing husband were supposed to face off in court on Friday, April 12, at a mandatory settlement conference in L.A. -- but sources tell Us Weekly that Humphries, 28, was a no-show.
UPDATE: According to one insider, the judge at the settlement hearing was "furious" that the Brooklyn Nets athlete didn't show and said it was like he was "mocking" the court system. "Kim showed up pregnant!" the source tells Us. "He's just wasting everyone's time at this point...The judge is furious. So disrespectful."
Fortunately for Humphries, there will be a different judge presiding over the official trial next month. Since no settlement was reached on Friday, the estranged couple will go to court on May 6; a source says the process is expected to take around five days.
Kardashian, for her part, was present and accounted for, though a source tells Us she seemed nervous and fidgeted with her hands a little. Photographed leaving the courthouse, the six-months-pregnant star kept her look appropriately understated, wearing a long, light-colored blouse and white dress pants.
Friday's settlement hearing was supposed to bring the former lovebirds together so they could try to hash out a resolution before their scheduled May 6 trial date. Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries in October 2011 after just 72 days of marriage; he countered with annulment based on fraud.
Earlier this week, Kardashian and her legal team filed their witness list for the upcoming trial. According to court records (via E! News), her mom, Kris Jenner, is among those expected to testify, along with lawyers, managers, and even Humphries himself. The NBA player has not yet filed his list.
