Both sides in the KIM KARDASHIAN - KRIS HUMPHRIES split have new ammunition in their divorce war. Humphries' lawyers plan to grill Kim about her in-depth interview with Oprah Winfrey, especially the part where she said her mom, Kris Jenner, asked her on the eve of her wedding if she wanted to call the whole thing off. Kris' lawyers could get even more ammo as the second part of Kim's interview with Oprah airs this Sunday. Meanwhile, Kim's lawyers have served Kris' ex-girlfriend, Myla Sinanaj, with a subpoena. She's really hacked off at Kris after he dumped her and referred to her as a booty call, so you know she'll be more than happy to cooperate.

When asked if she thought they had a romantic relationship, Khloe said, "I don't know who [Kris is] f**king, it's just not my sister, that's all I know."
