In papers filed in L.A. Superior Court on Thursday, Humphries’s lawyer Marshall Waller sought to remove himself from the case, citing “irreconciable differences” causing an “irremediable breakdown” of their attorney-client relationship.
Lawyers for Kardashian and Humphries, whose marriage lasted only 72 days, were set to face-off in court Friday. Their judge was expected to rule on whether to grant Kardashian a divorce or a set a trial date.
In recent weeks, Humphries’s attorney argued that Kardashian was using her pregnancy as leverage to force a trial.
The reality star responded by imploring the court to grant her a divorce because the ongoing battle was endangering “the health and well-being of my unborn child.”
