Kim Kardashian may have asked for a divorce, but her estranged husband Kris Humphries wants something a little different.
The NBA player is seeking a legal separation, his rep tells CNN, and does not plan to go through with signing the divorce papers Kim filed on October 31. That way, the couple's 72-day marriage could then be annulled.
Update, 4:30 p.m.: Kris Humphries' rep tells CNN that he has filed to legally separate from and nullify his marriage to Kim Kardashian. (And, by the way: Any reports you see about him being gay aren't true, the rep says.)
According to People magazine, this is a new plan for Kris. Sources close to the basketball player had previously claimed that he wanted to sign off on the divorce and move forward.
