Kim Kardashian is telling close friends she is not pushing for a divorce so she can marry Kanye West -- she's saying Kris Humphries has simply become "a cancer" she wants out of her life forever.
Sources connected with Kim tell DG ... after Wednesday's court hearing, Kim said, "Kris is the first person I ever had to break-up with and that f**ked with my emotions." She added, when their marriage started to fall apart "He told our producers he would destroy my career and me if the show wasn't edited right."
Kim, who is telling friends she is "emotionally exhausted" from dealing with Kris, says if he really thinks he can convince a judge she defrauded him, wait 'til he sees the outtakes of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" -- which show Kris as a "manipulative, vindictive, petty, fame-hungry jerk."
Kim is telling friends, "It's all on camera and it's going to backfire in his face."
NBA star Humphries' latest move? On July 16, he attempted to subpoena Kardashian's boyfriend Kanye West -- having a processor drop off court papers inside a Nordstrom's box!
The reality star answered the door on West's behalf, and told the processor "she could not accept it," according to Humphries' attorney William Waller.
Admitting she was frustrated with the extremely lengthy annulment process -- with Humphries and his team filing a great deal of subpoenas and other requests -- Wasser told the judge that her famous client has already incurred $250,000 in fees.
Humphries has accused Kardashian of defrauding him -- tying the knot solely for TV ratings and publicity. Wasser has countered that there is no basis or factual evidence of Humphries' claims.
Serious palava. The main husband (Kris, about to be butted out and the Spare tyre, Kanye, about to fall in the same trap)
