Kris Humphries would have filed a request for cancellation with Kim Kardashian, his wife of 72 days.
The NBA player filed documents in Superior Court on Wednesday, ticking the box that said “Voidable Nullity of Marriage” and another saying the reason was “fraud.” People reported.
The papers also say that if he doesn’t get an annulment, he wants a legal separation instead of a divorce.
According to California law, an annulment can only be granted under one of eight conditions: incest, bigamy, underage spouse who has not obtained parental consent, existing marriage or domestic partnership, insane, fraud, force or incapacity , when the spouse is physically incapable of consummating the marriage.
Kardashian filed for divorce on October 31.
“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kardashian said in a statement at the time. “I hope everyone understands that this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t go as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best. .
The couple tied the knot on August 20 after a six-month whirlwind romance. Among the 400 guests at their lavish wedding in Montecito were Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, Kathy Lee Gifford, Mel B, George Lopez and Serena Williams.
The only cameras allowed inside during the ceremony were from E! Entertainment, which aired a two-part marriage special on October 9 and 10.
