Kim Kardashian - Kris Jenner will testify in divorce battle
Kris Jenner will testify in her daughter Kim Kardashian's divorce battle against Kris Humphries
The 32-year-old TV star's mother and manager kris jenner has been named on her witness list, which was filed on Monday (08.04.13), along with Farnaz Farjam, who is a producer for their reality show 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'.
Kim and her estranged husband Kris, 28, will also be called to testify during the trial, which is due to begin in Los Angeles on May 6.
The couple have been fighting about how to legally end their 72-day marriage since November 2011.
Kim wants a divorce, while Kris wants an annulment on the grounds of ''fraud'' as he claims she married him to boost the ratings of her show.
According to her Los Angeles Superior Court filing, a copy of which was obtained by People.com, Kim expects to provide ''reasons why the parties' marriage should be dissolved and not annulled'' and show ''that she did not defraud (Kris) into marrying her.''
Kim is also preparing to testify about their pre-nuptial agreement and has listed several other financial advisers as witnesses.
Kim, who was denied a request to move to the trial to May 3 last week so she could attend an engagement in New York, was previously reported to have refused to answer some questions at her divorce deposition last month.
A source said: ''The deposition was long and Kris Humphries' attorney, Lee Hutton, was extremely thorough. Kim was asked what media outlets she talks to, off the record, because Kris believes she has planted negative stories about him in the press.
''It's very well known that Kim talks to a tabloid gossip website on almost a daily basis, with no attribution to her. Kim refused to answer that line of questioning, on the instruction of her lawyer. Kim's refusal to answer could force her to take the witness stand at the divorce trial, which is scheduled to take place in May.''
