Kris Humphries just filed a claim in the California courts for an order annulling his marriage to Ms. Kardashian on the basis of fraud. If an annulment is granted, it is as if there was no marriage at all.
How does one qualify for an annulment rather than a divorce? In British Columbia a marriage may be annulled under any of the following circumstances:
1. The spouses were over the age of seven, but the female spouse was under the age of twelve and the male spouse was under the age of fourteen;
2. One of both of the spouses did not consent to the marriage or were under duress or were coerced into the marriage;
3. The male spouse is impotent or the female spouse is sterile;
4. The marriage cannot be consummated;
5. The marriage was a sham;
6. One or both of the spouses agreed to marry as a result of fraud or misrepresentation.
Mr. Humphries says that Kim mislead him to believe their marriage would be “til death do us part”, but her real motive was ratings on the Kardashian reality television show. His view is shared by Ms. Kardashian’s former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, who publicly opined that Kim never intended her marriage to Kris to be real, as she was still pining for old boyfriend Reggie Bush. Kim’s now suing Jaxson for breaching a confidentiality contract, although she may have trouble with that since neither Jaxson or Kim signed the contract.
When Kim filed for divorce and then left town, she apparently blindsided Mr. Humphries. Looks like she’s getting a little of her own medicine back and is reportedly incensed.
I’m having trouble conjuring up any sympathy for her. What do you think?
