KRIS HUMPHRIES will formally be filing a response to his estranged wife Kim Kardashian's divorce petition, asking a judge to annul the 72 day ill fated union.

The NBA free agent wants it annulled because "he absolutely plans on getting married again,” reports.

“Since the marriage only lasted 72 days, Kris feels that an annulment is appropriate.

"Kris will formally declare on the documents that he is seeking a legal separation from Kim. This is what needs to take place in California for the judge to grant the annulment," a source said.

Humphries wants "this to be over with as quickly as possible.

"The divorce could be finalized in six months, and since there was a pre-nup, there is no reason why that shouldn't happen.

"Kris doesn't plan on contesting anything, and won't ask Kim for anything.

“When the annulment is granted, it will be as if Kris was never married to Kim," the insider elaborated.
