X17 EXCLUSIVE - Divorce Attorney Close To The Kardashians: "Kris Has No Rights To Kim's Fortune"

Posted on Mon Oct 31, 2011 01:10 PM PDT

KimKardashiaDivorceAttorney230.jpgX17 has spoken exclusively with renowned divorce attorney Mike Kelly, Chairman of the California Family Law Institute, to get his opinion on Kim Kardashian's divorce proceedings.

Kelly, a friend of Robert Kardashian -- Kim's father (Robert was a lawyer), has reviewed Kim's case. Kim's fortune is in the multi-millions; it's estimated that the Kardashian family made $65 million in 2010 alone.

Says Kelly, who has worked with celebs including Anthony Hopkins:

    "It would be difficult for either of them to get spousal support because it’s an extraordinarily short marriage. California is a no-fault state, so it won’t make a difference if Kris went out and had sex with several women. But, as far as him doing what he did -– some of the pictures that have come out -– that will create a problem for him with getting anything.”

Kris has been spotted out flirting with women at nightclubs (sans Kim) on several occasions since the two wed in August. Kelly continues:

    "Kris has no rights to Kim's fortune. The prenup will hopefully freeze him out completely. ... Between the prenup, shortness of the marriage and circumstances of the break-up, I don't think Kris will get anything."

Kelly spoke about Kim as a person and what Robert would say about the situation:

    "I would have bet she was going to be faithful. In the family, you don’t find drugs or alcohol. There’s not that Lindsay Lohan behavior. ... They had a great father. ... With this filing, Kim is saying, ‘I’m not going to tolerate this behavior. Period.’ ... He [Robert] would have advised her to get divorced."

Kim has hired Laura Wasser as her divorce attorney -- which Kelly says was a good decision. "That's a very good office," he says. "They're not going to let this drag out at all."

Kim filed for divorce from her husband of two months, Kris Humphries, on Monday morning. She cited irreconcilable differences and is not seeking an annulment. The two did have a prenuptial agreement. Kim is asking the court to make Kris pay for his own lawyer's fees, and she does not want to give him spousal support.
