Kris Humphries thinks his divorce from Kim Kardashian is being unnecessarily rushed because she is pregnant.
The basketball star's lawyer Marshall Waller has filed new documents accusing Kim, who is expecting her first child in June with her rapper boyfriend Kanye West, of trying to use the situation to speed up a settlement, stating that his client had nothing to do with her "unplanned pregnancy" and it should have no impact on their litigation.

According to gossip website TMZ.com, the documents state: "What is really going on here is that an 'urgency' in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something [Humphries] had nothing to do with, is perceived by [Kim] as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial."
Kris' lawyer also allegedly took a further swipe at Kim, 32, by adding a footnote after the word "pregnancy" that reads, "Indeed, why would [Kim] plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?"
The former couple's split has dragged on for more than a year, despite their marriage lasting a mere 72 days because they continue to disagree about how to end their marriage.
Kris wants an annulment on the grounds of fraud. Kim denies that she married him under false pretenses and wants a divorce.
The new documents also state that Kris is happy to stipulate that he is not the father of Kim's baby given they are still legally married and the court might assume he is the father.
Kris also wants to be present for Kim's deposition and has a right to be there, but claims that due to his work schedule he's unavailable until mid-May or June.
