Instead of preparing for their one-year anniversary in August, Kardashian and Humphries become engaged in trench warfare, with Kardashian's lawyer claiming Humphries's side is resorting to strange tactics like packing a deposition request for West in a Nordstrom's box and delivering it to Kardashian's front door. The star's 2013 pregnancy further leads to a plea for an expedited divorce, while Humphries refuses to oblige. The decision is taken out of his hands in February, when a judge declares the pair's divorce ready for trial, and Humphries's lawyer removes himself from the case.
