LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kim Kardashian's attorney told a judge Friday that the reality star wants her divorce from Kris Humphries to move forward but that the case has been slowed by the NBA player's hurt feelings and his desire for an annulment.

Humphries' attorneys said they needed more time to gather information to decide whether to pursue allegations that the couple's 72-day marriage was a fraud. Proving the allegations would likely require a trial, which Kardashian's attorney Laura Wasser said could prove costly to her estranged husband.

The couple was married last summer in a lavish, star-studded and televised ceremony, but Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31. Humphries responded a month later asking for an annulment, claiming the couple's nuptials were based on a fraud, but not laying out specific evidence.

"I feel that (Humphries') personal feelings and maybe some media drive is keeping this case alive," Wasser said. She said the couple is eligible for a divorce since it has been more than six months since Kardashian filed her petition.

"Certainly, they've been separated longer than they've been married," Wasser said.

She said if the case goes to trial and Kardashian wins, she will ask that Humphries pay her hefty legal fees. Currently, Kardashian wants each side to pay their own fees.
