Their contentious divorce battle continues — over the word ‘concept’
New court papers obtained by Yahoo Entertainment show that the divorce battle between the exes, who previously fought over pots and pans, is more contentious than ever.
The exes have a start date of November 27th for the trial that will determine the validity of their 2004 prenuptial agreement and they are currently in the discovery process. However, Kevin’s divorce attorney, Laura Wasser, accuses Kristen of acting in “bad faith” when it comes to letting her prenuptial allegations be known.
Kevin’s team claims Kristen “categorically refused” to say whether to challenge the pre-boot, give “evasive” answers or “avoid answering many” of the standard questions. Wasser is also skeptical with Kristen’s legal team claiming “she doesn’t understand words like ‘understood’ or ‘negotiate’, so she can’t answer” certain questions about the pre-event.
Wasser notes that Christine was asked to admit or deny the statement that she “understood the prenuptial agreement before signing it.” Her lawyer objected, saying that the question was “vague as to the scope and meaning of the term ‘understood’. Consequently, the petitioner cannot accept or deny this application.”
There were similar objections to many questions.
“Kristen maintains that she cannot admit or deny that she understood a prenuptial agreement (“PMA”) because she (and apparently all of her attorneys) do not understand the word “understood,” Wasser wrote. The word ‘understand’ is not a technical or vague word…the notion that Christine and the various seasoned lawyers representing her do not understand the word ‘understand’ and cannot respond to this simple and direct request. (Admission applicationsinsignificant.”
Wasser says her team provided Christine’s lawyers with a “definition of a ‘concept’…” She claimed the objection was filed solely “for the purpose of delay,” and calls the many objections “frivolous.”
Wasser shows documentation of attempts to get Christine to answer the questions, apparently getting nowhere. So she is seeking financial penalties against Christine, who she says “just threw roadblock after roadblock in an unwarranted effort to avoid responding to this discovery.” They also want Christine to cover Kevin’s legal fees for pulling this off.
This is a big divorce, Kevin is estimated to be worth around $400 million. However, they have a prenup, which Kevin wants to enforce. There will be a hearing on Sept. 6 for this new discovery dispute, according to the documents. Before that, a hearing will take place on August 31.
