Twist! Bet you didn't see that one coing Kris Humphries! Hope you didn't sign any deals with any networks yet!
Going against the grain and throwing a lot of people off guard, Kim Kardashian has her legal team working very hard to ensure her divorce from Kris is handled in private mediation — no cameras allowed!
It's Kim's hope that by taking their divorce out of the spotlight, the proceedings won't take longer than the actual marriage itself. A source close to the Kardashian family adds:
“A public trial is the last thing that Kim wants, and she has instructed her lawyer to formally petition the court so that the divorce can be heard by a mediator, which is routinely done in California, since it's a no-fault state. Kim doesn't want a long drawn out trial. She wants the mediation to be private, confidential, and legally binding. She and Kris have no assets together and kept separate bank accounts, so this is a fairly routine divorce proceeding. Kim just wants this over and done with.”
Sounds pretty cut and dry to us! Shouldn't be too much trouble once they get down to it. But seeing as Kris has caught the reality TV bug, their biggest hurdle might be getting him to agree to keep this private.
Good luck to ya, Kim! Here's hoping you can end this thing quickly and quietly … even though it has already been three months. But who is counting.
