Hoping to avoid a protracted legal battle in his divorce from Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries has filed to annul their 72-day marriage on the ground of fraud, reports People. The magazine’s source claims Kardashian may be behind the move: “She always wanted an annulment but attorneys were against it so she’s happy that both parties agree now.” If Humphries’ petition is carried out, the marriage will be erased from all legal record, as if it had never existed. If the petition does not go through, Humphries has stipulated he would prefer legal separation to divorce at this juncture.
