In response to Kim Kardashian's request to expedite her ongoing divorce from Kris Humphries, the Brooklyn Nets player has formally refused to speed up the process via official court documents.

In paperwork obtained by ET filed February 4, Kris's lawyer Marshall W. Waller alleges that Kim's rush to bring the case to court has more to do with her impending pregnancy than legitimate pressing matters.

"What is really going on here is that an 'urgency' in the form of an apparently unplanned pregnancy, something [Kris] 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," writes Waller.

He later asks, "Indeed, why would [Kim] plan to get pregnant in the midst of divorce proceedings?"

Kim, during a January appearance on the Today show stayed mostly mum about her ongoing divorce proceedings from her infamous 72-day marriage to the NBA star. When asked where the process stands ahead of her next court appearance on the matter on February 15, Kim said, "I can't really speak for anyone else. It just is a process."

Kim and Kris formally split in October 2011 citing "irreconcilable differences."
