Kris Humphries is responding to Kim Kardashian’s divorce filing with a bid to end the marriage via annulment. Wednesday, he filed court papers, filling in the check box for “nullity of voidable marriage.”

The basketball player also checked the “fraud” box in citing his reasons for wishing the union never actually happened. It’s not clear whether he was just citing the most generic reason to request an annulment or hinting at rumors that his bride only went through with the televised wedding for publicity purposes.

“The reason Kris is alleging ‘fraud’ is because the other options were ridiculous,” a friend reportedly told Us magazine. “The whole ‘fraud’ thing is ridiculous. If the marriage was a sham, he was in on it. Did he not see the cameras or get a cut of whatever money was made? The marriage was real. It was just a terrible and unhappy one.”

A source tells Radar Online that Kris is hoping for “this to be over with as quickly as possible. The divorce could be finalized in six months, and since there was a prenup, there is no reason why that shouldn’t happen. Kris doesn’t plan on contesting anything, and won’t ask Kim for anything. When the annulment is granted, it will be as if Kris was never married to Kim.”

Well, except for all that televised footage.

Mason’s Sibling

And in other Kardashian news … Kourtney is a mama-to-be again!

Already parents to almost 2-year-old son Mason, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick are expecting a second child. “Now I’m nine weeks along,” the reality star reveals to Us. “You’re supposed to wait
12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.” (Plus, it takes the media pressure off her sister.)

So now that they’re expecting a second child together, will Kourtney and Scott finally tie the knot?

“I think everybody probably sees marriage in their future,” Scott declares to OK! magazine. “I love Kourtney more than anything in the world. We’ve come a long way. I finally have come to the place in my life where I realize what’s important.”

OK, so are you getting hitched or aren’t you?!

Twins for Mindy

Um, what? Shortly after troubled country singer Mindy McCready disappeared with her 5-year-old son in a rumored custody dispute, her rep told People magazine she is five months pregnant with twins. No word on the father’s identity.

“I am working with lawyers to try to get all this straightened out,” Mindy insisted to “Access Hollywood.” “I did not steal my child, as it would be impossible for me to kidnap what already belongs to me!”

We’re worried.
