Thursday, Nov 29, 2012 9:14AM
Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West reportedly got thrown into girlfriend Kim Kardashian's publicized divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries by sitting in for a deposition.
Details of the latest legal update have started to circulate across the Internet.
Kanye West has officially been dragged into the longest, most ridiculous divorce case ever -- Kris Humphries made Kim's rapper/bf sit for a deposition ... TMZ has learned. Kim's lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, is in court right now, essentially asking the judge to make Kris either s**t or get off the pot. As Wasser put it, "She [Kim] is now handcuffed to Mr. Humphries." Wasser mentioned Kris and his lawyers are now raising issues over the prenup he signed, which we know gives him squat. Wasser also expressed frustration that Kris is dragging his feet -- he hasn't even deposed Kim yet. Wasser calls the whole thing a "fishing expedition." The judge said he'll set a trial date February 15. Hey, it's the day after Valentine's Day. Sweet. (TMZ)
Back in August, reports surfaced which claimed Humphries' legal team tried to subpoena Yeezy with a fancy gift box.
Kris Humphries' lawyer engineered a sneak attack by trying to serve a subpoena on Kanye West by putting it in a Nordstrom box and sending it to Kim Kardashian's house. Kim's lawyer, disso queen Laura Wasser, told the judge in the divorce case about the ploy during a hearing that is still going on. Wasser groused to the judge ... Kim has already racked up $250,000 in attorney's fees, yet it's unclear exactly what Kris wants out of this. Wasser said she's heard the reports that Kris and his lawyers want to put reality TV on trial, and there seems to be evidence to back that up. Wasser noted that Kris has served Kris Jenner with a subpoena and NBC Universal and Bunim/Murray, which produces the Kardashian reality shows. (TMZ)
In June, reports surfaced online and suggested the NBA player would target Ye's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose for the case.
Kris Humphries is going to subpoena Kanye West's ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, because she has previously claimed that the hip hop superstar and reality TV star hooked up several years ago and not recently as Kim has claimed; meanwhile, the NBA star's deposition is taking place right now in Minnesota, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. Kris legal team "will absolutely be issuing a subpoena for Amber Rose to be deposed because she has very relevant information and could contradict Kim's timeline about when she and Kanye West became romantically involved. Kris' team hasn't spoken to Amber yet, but they are hopeful that she will be a cooperative witness. If Kris' lawyers determine she will be a hostile witness, they will still depose her because they just want to get to the truth," a source close to the situation tells us. (Radar Online)
Earlier in the year, Rose claimed Kardashian and Ye had a secret romance during their time together.
"I know there has been a lot of rumors circulating the internet today. After being asked the same questions over and over in every interview for so long i had to be honest and get this off my chest ... I don't lie, i don't embellish I'm not trying to hurt anyone just setting the record straight. #FAME is a Crazy thing But I'm so thankful I have a AMAZING husband that Loves and supports me to the fullest he's my Angel and soulmate. Thank u Rosebuds and Rosestuds for understanding me Muva loves y'all so much" (Who Say)
