Kris Humphries will risk career for trial

Los Angeles - Kris Humphries is allegedly willing to risk his career over his divorce battle with Kim Kardashian.

The Brooklyn Nets basketball player's team is on track to score a place in the 2013 Playoffs, which run from 20 April to 20 June, and he is said to be willing to miss the games in order to face his estranged wife in court on 6 May.

A source close to 28-year-old athlete, who is on a two-year contract worth $24m, told gossip website TMZ.com that Kris has already decided he will skip the Playoffs if the trial, which could last two or three days, clashes with a game.

The sports star is keen to have their 72-day marriage annulled on the grounds of fraud, insisting Kim only married him for publicity on her show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but was advised against the decision by his former attorney Marshall Weller.

Kim is held 'hostage'

However, Waller has since quit the trial and Kris has hired out-of-state lawyer Lee Hutton to help on the case, but will need another Californian representative on board.

Their split has been dragging on since October 2011. The former couple got engaged the previous May after just six months of dating.

Kim, who is expecting her first child in July with her rapper boyfriend of almost a year, has accused Kris of holding her "hostage" through their divorce and wants to move on with her life.
