Kanye West Dragged Into Kim Kardashian Divorce: Rapper Is Deposed

Love Triangle? Kim Kardashian, Kanye West And Kris Humphries

Los Angeles — Kanye West has been deposed in Kim Kardashian’s ongoing divorce case against NBA player Kris Humphries.

Reasons why West has been pulled into the face-off between his girlfriend and her estranged husband will likely center on when the flamboyant rapper began a relationship with the reality star.

Allegations that West and Kardashian became intimately involved before she filed for a divorce from Humphries have circulated in the public domain for over a year.

Kardashian is expected to deny those claims at trial.

West and Kardashian went public as a couple in April 2012, but the Watch The Throne star appeared in episodes of Kimand Kourtney Take New York TV show all the way back in 2010.

Today, Kardashian’s attorney, Laura Wasser, said Kris Jenner — Kim’s mother and manager — had also been deposed.

Kanye West Deposed In Girlfriend Kim Kardashian's Divorce Case

On Wednesday, Wasser told Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney that her client was ready to move on from her marriage, but was “handcuffed to Mr Humphries” due to his legal team’s non-readiness for trial.

Judge Maloney told both sides they would be required to return to court in mid-February, to either annul or dissolve the couple’s ill-fated 72-day marriage.

According to the Huffington Post, the Judge didn’t set any deadlines for depositions or discovery but said a trial could be scheduled as early as February 15 next year.

It’s believed the delay in the case is because Humphries and Kardashian are set on approaching their divorce from very different positions. Humphries is accusing his estranged wife of fraud.

In addition, Marshall Waller, Humphries’ attorney, maintains that he needs more time to collect documents from E! Entertainment and NBCUniversal, the companies behind Kardashian’s reality shows.

For her part, Kardashian is seeking a traditional divorce based on the dual premises that the marriage was unreasonably brief and that a prenuptial agreement is already in place.

Kris Kardashian and Kris Humphries In Happier Times

In court, Wasser said Waller’s go-slow approach was a tactic. “I don’t think his client has a fraud case,” she said. “I think there’s a fishing expedition going on here.”

Waller insists he needs all the documentation from E! Entertainment and NBC Universal before he can frame his client’s case.

“I do understand the desire to get this case moved,” Waller said. “There’s nothing in particular about this case that makes it more important than anybody else.”

The world was stunned — okay, mildly surprised — when Kardashian filed for divorce from Humphries more than a year ago. The well-endowed star cited irreconcilable differences after saying “I do’s” in an extravagant televised wedding on October 31, 2011.

Humphries subsequently filed for an annulment, claiming fraud. As yet, no evidence for that claim has been submitted to the court.

So is Humphries holding out for more money, or do you think his fraud claim holds water? Sound off below.

    yep she did it all for money why else are they one tv for they don't talet for anything but annoy and being bad role models for younger girls. But Kris should hav eknown what he was getting into with her and that family. Shes not even divorced yet and already tlaking babies and wedding with kanye. I smell another tv wedding.

  2. Tom Zarvis

    Oh yea, dragged into the case.Somebody should've knocked him on his scraggly ass years ago when he interupted Swift's 1st run in the sun.

  3. Shawn Rakar

    Amen Tom.
    Kris Humphries can't be too mad, though. Kanye West IS getting HIS sloppy seconds! If anything, Kris Humphries should ask Kanye how his dick tastes.

  4. Shawn Rakar

    Can't have another TV wedding unless you get a divorce, TV or not.

    I think that's what this is all the fuss about. Kris Humphries is stalling so she can't make
    another episode!

  5. Robin Sorenson

    The marriage was between two people, the divorce should be between two people and be over and done with already! Nothing like Kris to drag it out to get more fame and more money. I totally do not see what Kim saw in him in the first place! Ugh!

    2 of pop culture's most polarizing icons stirring shit up together. I can't stand them yet I can't stop reading…what's wrong with me? haha

  8. Karen Stamper

    OMG, Kanye is such a manwhore, he basically broke up with a girlfriend, Amber Rose to have an affair with a married woman. I used to love him but this is one of his worse behaviors that really takes the cake.

  9. Stacey Swistoski

    ither way its over and why doesn't he just let her go, she doesn't want him and he wont just let her move on…if you look at what he is doing here by not ending this don't be suprised if he had the same behavior during there marriage and that is why she called it quits. Sometimes when people get married they think they own someone and there behavior changes. if he ever loved her he would want her to be happy and he would move on and find someone else. she isn't the one…

  10. Angela Avila

    1st of all, why are you reading articles about Kim K if you don't like her? 2nd…Taylor didn't deserve the award..lol….she needs to grow up and wear grown up girl clothes already….3rd it wasnt fraud..y would she want to put herself threw this divorce drama..for a just a tv wedding AND spend all that money…just my opinion,,,

  11. Julliana Chaves

    He is an idiot. A. because you attemoted to wife Kim and B. because Kanye is going to slaughter you Internationally. Move on playa! Damn!

  12. Michael Patrick

    They both need to just move on. Neither needs the other's money. They're both lucky that the marriage only lasted 72 days, and when they're old and grey and look back at this stupid time in their lives, they'll realize this.

  13. Julliana Chaves

    Wow, Kris is undoubtly an idiot. A. Because he attempted to wife Kim K.. (c'mon son) and B. Because Kanye is going to embarrass him even more than he already embarassed himself. Move on playa! Damn! Do you even have a FB, bitches come and go all day, all night. Continue with your career and let Kim do what she is good at doing.. nothing.

  14. Robert Dungan

    Kardashian and West; now that's a pair of idiots who deserve each other.

  15. Anonymous

    Regardless of whether or not Taylor Swift "deserves" an award, she won it, and some loudmouth, egotistical, ridiculous dumb ass should not have ruined her moment. And it's THROUGH, not THREW, as in, "I nearly threw up when I saw that dickface ruin Taylor Swift's moment on stage."

  16. Mark A Drennen

    I hope kim Kardashian loses big time in her divorce from Kris Humphries…and now Kanye is planning on popping the question….her record is 72 days, let's see how long this one will last.

    He should have been dragged off stage with a shepherd's hook, then beaten with it.

  18. Mark A Drennen

    And you think Kanye is a better prize than Kris….your taste is in your mouth.

  19. Danielle McCoy

    Why is it always a woman that takes Kim's side. Can you think of anything this woman has done that did not have a monetary incentive behind it??

  20. Audrey Perfect

    norris7513 Lol, another gay fish douchebag defending Kanye. Too funny.

  21. Mandy Brown

    Way off topic but I have an almost identical picture of my grandfather that you have in your profile.

  22. Christian F. Gutierrez

    Kanye just needs to stay out of it. Kim got into this marriage herself with Kris and if she was really woman enough to deal with it. She should tell Kanye to shut the hell up and let her deal with the divorce as a real woman!

  23. Christina DntknoYihaveafb Page

    Angela i agree with you that if u don't like her then y read her article? (no one ever answers the question) and can someone please another reason to hate kanye west other than that taylor swift thing… He is a musical genius in my opinion and yea he has a big ego but who doesn't in the celebrity world

    Everyone loved Kris, except for Khloe, but she started coming around. So WTF? Kourtney knows the deal that Kim was a real witch, but she's going to be mum now to support her sister.

  26. Shelia Kinslow-Harrison

    No matter what he needs to let go and move on. He can't prove fraud. I think she and Kanye are both losers but Chris needs to move on he's not getting more famous by this it's just making him look pathetic. I think he just wants the money. He signed a prenup and that's all he's going to get. Take what you have and get a life. There's no future living in the past.

  27. Shelia Kinslow-Harrison

    Im not a fan of Taylor Swift but he was just wrong and rude and she won the award she did deserve it. People voted for her just like democracy including the presidency she won. Don't be a hater.

  29. Kristy Ann

    Kris H needs to man up, and realize thier dumbass marriage is just that dumb, people get married all the time and then realize they made a mistake, that's what happens when you marry someone you hardly know! Stop being a BIG BITCH about it and move on for christ sake!

  30. Maria Gregorio Frazelle

    While I don't think Kris was "completely" blind to how fast things were moving and televising a sacred event, I don't think he ever tried to control her. There is no controlling any female Kardashian, the show has proven that over the years, even Rob is clearly a mama's boy. I do believe that Kris just wants it stated that this marriage was fraud…Very seldom does one end a relationship and say, ah, we loved and it didn't work out, go forth, be happy!!

  31. Maria Gregorio Frazelle

    I agree with Cicely, it's a train wreck and are you serious? why would she put herself through this?? for a TV wedding? YES!! and spend all that money? I have a feeling that slutty cow thought Kris would go more quietly, plus she's got tons of money to spare…

  32. Tursha Gray

    Christina DntknoYihaveafb Page i defiantly agree with you!! its just animosity because of their success.

  33. Rebecca Christiansen

    Stacey you do have a very teenage view. Can you possibly fathom that he took marriage seriously and she didn't? Can you imagine his dismay when he was forced to live in a 2-bedroom apt. with his brother and sister-in-law right after his honeymoon? Can you imagine coming in third in priorities with your own wife? Sorry but here's the cold hard facts – marriage is between two equals. It's not all about the chick. She needed to learn the meaning of the word "compromise" and accept the reality that she does not run the marriage and he is not an employee. Get real. If she loved him, she'd acknowledge she used him and let him go with an annulment. She is with the perfect person right now as Kanye is the male counterpart to her gigantic ego. Bottom line adults don't marry for only 72 days regardless. She made no effort to make the marriage work because if she did, she would have not proposed getting pregnant while they were in New York living 2 doors away from the psycho and her boyfriend.

    @Christina, Einstein was a genius – don't abuse the word. I read the article because its fascinating that women like you even respect her. Women defend Kardashian because they are obsessed with celebrity. Women are desperate for attention and love to see Kim act out all their fantasies.

    Why is she with Kanye anyway? What a weird couple! I would like her more if she had some talent. Take some acting classes girl. You can't sing or dance but maybe acting can be learned?

  37. Anonymous

    She cheated on Humphreys and left him because she is a gold digging skeez with no class and a passion for free money from the richest she could get. She just wants more money and attention. Isn't it coincidence that when her show started failing she went into Kanye's spotlight to be some Douchebags whore? Niether Kuntye or Kim the kunt Kardassgivian should be public figures. Niether of them really accomplished anything but sucking dick and acting bratty. I hope they crash and burn in the worst ways.

    Wouldn't wanna spend all that money…ummmm isn't that what she always does. Spends entirely too much money on houses, cars, and clothes. And at least taylor swift covers herself up and acts like a human being should act.

  41. Daniel Combs

    Christina DntknoYihaveafb Page People in the celebrity world who don't have a big ego…Nicole Kidman, Leonardo Dicaprio, Tim McGraw, Kelly Clarkson, Kenny Chesney, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cher…pretty much covered a whole slew of generes there…Kanye West is a egotistical idiot who thinks he is entitled to so much because he sold a few records…when was the last time he even released anything?

  42. Melissa Tintelnot

    his arrogance is enough of a reason to dislike kanye, his extremely rude treatment to another artist is another, and im betting every cent i own that he will also enter into a kardashian marriage, all televised, and all monetarily beneficial.hes no better than any of the other greedy people getting paid to be famous for doing nothing

  43. Victor Emmanuel

    You`re a groupie too, you people need to get a life instead of defending celebrities. You think they would fight for you?

  44. Penny Musok

    I don't believe it's about him wanting to hold onto her. Not at all. I think it's about "justice" for Humphries. She used him. She made him feel like a bought and paid-for extra on their reality show. I think this is about THE POINT for Humphries – not about wanting her back.

  45. James McCown

    So what did Kanye say at the deposition? "Yo Kim, I'm very happy for you. Imma let you finish. But Taylor was one of the best lays of ALL TIME!"

    When white women marry or date black men they are usually seeking attention. Chris Brown and Kanye West are troubled souls and bad new for anyone. Best to enjoy there dancing and leave it at that ladies…..
