The marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries couldn’t have been summarized better than on the box Kris Humphries checked in filing for an annulment: “Fraud.”
Even though KardashianÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â already filed for divorce on day 72 of the marriage,Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â attorney’s for Humprhies filed for annulment inÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â Superior Court. Requesting the “nullity of voidable marriage.” Among the choices listed as a basis for annulment – and the one checked, was “fraud.”
California law grants teh request if no valid marriage ever occurred. Along with fraud, grounds for an annulment include bigamy, incest, force or if the participants are minors.
Kardashian had reportedly also wanted an annulment, but her legal team had advised her against it in favor of divorce. If annulment isn’t granted Humprhies is hoping for a legal separation, which is different than an actual divorce.
