As part of his girlfriend Kim Kardashian's ongoing divorce battle from estranged husband Kris Humphries, Kanye West has been forced to sit for a deposition.

The former couple has been involved in a bitter legal battle ever since the reality TV star filed to end her 72-day marriage to the basketball player in October, 2011.

According to, Humphries is convinced Kardashian used their televised nuptials as a publicity stunt to boost her earnings, and his lawyers have since managed to serve West with a summons to testify in the case, which he recently completed.

On Wednesday, Kardashian's lawyer Laura Wasser requested Humphries stop stalling the proceedings and move forward with deposing her client.
She also questioned why Humphries' attorneys were only now starting to raise issues with the former couple's pre-nuptial agreement, branding the move a "fishing expedition."
The judge overseeing the case has set a trial date for February 15.
