The never-ending saga that is the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries divorce case has taken another twist with a report that Kris’ lawyer has quit representing his client! Read on for all the details.

Will Kim Kardashian be divorced from Kris Humphries by the time she gives birth to Kanye West‘s baby? That’s been the topic of much conversation, and with a new report that Kris’ lawyer has filed documents with the court, severing his relationship with his client, it looks like the case has hit another delay!

Kris’ lawyer, Marshall Waller, had filed documents claiming that there has been an “irremediable breakdown of the attorney-client relationship,” according to TMZ. Marshall says that he’s explained the problem to Kris, but it hasn’t helped — he says the two just can’t see eye-to-eye on the case.

Kris, 28, still has an out-of-state lawyer, Lee Hutton, but TMZ says that he will need to find another California lawyer to sponsor him in the divorce case.

Kim Kardashian’s Divorce Stress — Bad For Baby?

As previously reported, Kim, 32, has been distraught over the prolonged divorce proceedings, to the point that she fears her baby is at risk it! “Several days ago, Kim called her doctor in the middle of the night to come to the house because she was having severe pains,” a source told TMZ. “The doctor examined her, but then warned he believed the problems were largely stress-related.” The source added that the only significant stressor in Kim’s life was her divorce.

Kris Humphries SLAMS Kim’s Pregnancy In Court

In early February, Kris had Marshall file papers with the court, questioning the “urgency” of the divorce (which has dragged on for almost a year and a half) and slamming Kim’s pregnancy! “What is really going on here is that an ‘urgency’ in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something [Humphries] had nothing to do with, is perceived by [Kim] as an opportunity to gain a litigation advantage by trying to force this court to prematurely set this matter for trial,” the document read.

Are you surprised that Kris’ lawyer quit, HollywoodLifers?
