The 31-year-old wants her impending divorce from Kris Humphries to be heard by a private mediator, and what's more, she's fighting to keep it all off camera.
"A public trial is the last thing Kim wants, and she has instructed her lawyers to formally petition the court so that the divorce can be heard by a mediator," a source told RadarOnline.com.
"Kim doesn't want a long drawn out trial. She wants the mediation to be private, confidential and legally binding…Kim just wants this over and done with."
