- Kris Humphries hires Minnesota-based sports lawyer for divorce
Still in love? Kim Kardashian and her ex boyfriend, NFL star Reggie Bush, pictured together here in June 2009
Jonathan Jaxson - who worked with the reality star between 2007 and 2009 - has renewed claims Kim's nuptials to NBA star Humphries were a publicity stunt.
Speaking on Good Day LA this morning, Jaxson said: 'Two weeks prior to her wedding she knew it was not something she wanted to do.
'Unfortunately they were obligated to honour contracts [with the E! network which had TV rights] otherwise they would have owed a lot of people a lot of money.'
Earlier this week during an interview with New York's Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, Jaxson said: 'She's never gotten over [her ex Reggie Bush].'
Kim, 31, and 26-year-old NFL star Reggie were the subject of repeated engagement claims throughout their relationship.
The couple dated for around two years before initially splitting in July 2009. Two months later they got back together before ending their relationship again in March last year.

Jaxson claimed he would often help Kim stage publicity stunts when he worked with her.
He continued: 'I staged several of the moments that the world has seen of her, such as a ring that we alleged was from Reggie Bush.'
The publicist talked about how he helped generate a fake engagement story between Kim and Reggie in 2007 by setting up paparazzi to take pictures of her leaving a Beverly Hills jewellery store.
She then sported a ring on her wedding finger in public - which Jaxson claimed is identical to the one Kris proposed to Kim with.
Jaxson added that there is no doubt Kim and Kris, 26, made a packet during their time together.

He told the radio show on Wednesday: 'They had a lot of contracts, they had endorsements. To say they weren't paid is a lot of foolish garbage.'
Kim is yet to respond to her former publicist's claims.

'Anyone that would get married for a TV show, it's just, you know, ridiculous,' she said.
'It's just sad that I even have to defend that.'
Meanwhile, it has emerged that Humphries is using Minnesota-based lawyer Lee Hutton to end his marriage with Kim.
Hutton represents a lot of sports stars, although does not tend to deal with divorces, according to TMZ.
