Kanye and Kim Are (Probably) Getting Married! Watch Your Back, Kris Humphries

Roughly four years and 72 days.

That's the amount of time Kim Kardashian has put in as someone's wife. More, however, may be on the horizon.

Fox News (via Life & Style) is reporting that Kardashian's boyfriend, Kanye West, is pressuring the 31-year-old reality star to hurry the divorce proceedings from ex, Kris Humphries, so that the two can wed.

"Kanye wants to marry Kim, and he's telling her to expedite the divorce so they can start their future," a source tells Life & Style. "Kanye's like, 'Just do whatever you need to make it go away.'"

Like ratings of her family's reality show, love seemingly blossomed again for Kim in 2010 when she started dating the NBA's Kris Humphries. A year later, they married; 72 days after that, she filed for divorce.

Since October 2011, the two have been locked in a legal battle. But earlier this year, Kanye threatened to make the problem, Humphries, "go away" on the diss track, "Theraflu."

"And I'll admit, I fell in love with Kim / 'Round the same time she had fell in love wit' him / Well, that's cool, baby girl, do ya thing / Lucky I ain't have Jay drop 'im from the team."

West, of course, was alluding to his friendship with Jay-Z, co-owner of the Brooklyn Nets and Humphries de facto boss. Jigga eventually spared the six-foot, nine-inch forward and let him play out the season.
