*Kris Humphries has filed legal documents to represent himself in his divorce from Kim Kardashian, TMZ is reporting.

Hump, who earns an annual $8 million with the New Jersey Nets, wanted his Minnesota business lawyer to rep him in the divorce.  But in California, an out-of-state lawyer must have a local attorney by his side – so he hired a Los Angeles lawyer.

But, according to TMZ, the L.A. lawyer withdrew from the case, leaving the Minnesota attorney without a sponsor, and Hump apparently believing he can pick up the slack.

He’ll be squaring off with Laura Wasser, one of the most powerful divorce lawyers in Hollywood with a celeb roster that includes Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds, Kiefer Sutherland, Stevie Wonder and others.\
