Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have settled their divorce case. Basketball player Kris - whose marriage to the reality TV star ended after just 72 days in 2011 - dropped his demands for an annulment due to fraud after being urged to settle by the judge and the couple will be officially divorced by June 19.
Kim appeared in court in Los Angeles on Friday, where she responded yes when asked if irreconcilable differences led to the breakdown of the marriage. "Yes, it's done. [The court] realized there was no fraud and the judge urged Kris to settle. Finally it's over!" a source told Us Weekly.
While Kris missed a court appearance last week and was not present on Friday, the judge has ruled his failure to appear in court "irrelevant" now that the case is settled and he won't have to face any fines.
It was recently claimed Kim, 32, - who is pregnant with her first child with her 35-year-old boyfriend Kanye West - was "furious" with Kris for dragging out their divorce and was worn out by their ongoing battle.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries faked their televised marriage proposal.
The former couple - who have been fighting about how to legally end their 72-day marriage since October 2011 - re-shot scenes of the 28-year-old basketball player popping the question to the reality TV star because she didn't like how she looked during his original proposal, according to a deposition given by Russell Jay, who is producer on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, ahead of their divorce trial.
According to a transcript of the deposition - obtained by Life & Style magazine - Kim was "completely surprise"' by Kris' first proposal and asked for the scene to be filmed again because "she didn't like how her face looked in the first take."
Russell also claimed that a scene where Kim confessed to her mother, Kris Jenner, that she was having trouble in her marriage was actually shot after she filed for divorce, and that another scene which saw the then-couple argue after Kris had a hotel party with girls while Kim was supposed to be out of town was also "faked" and that she was actually present the entire time.
Kim Kardashian's divorce trial has been set for May 6.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star split from basketball player Kris Humphries in November 2011 after just 72 days of marriage but they have so far failed to dissolve their union amicably, and while Kim wanted a trial next month because of her pregnancy, the trial will begin in May, according to TMZ.
Kim is expecting her first child with rapper boyfriend Kanye West and is reportedly worried that the drawn out divorce could have "long-term effects" on her baby. The 32-year-old beauty was treated for severe abdominal pains recently, after her doctor rushed to her home in the middle of the night to examine her and warned her to reduce her stress levels.
Kim's mother and manager Kris Jenner also confirmed she has been told to relax: "Kim has been going through this divorce for months. She has been under a lot of stress because of it and the doctors told her she had a really tough week and the stress could become a problem if she isn't careful."
Kim Kardashian's lawyer has branded Kris Humphries a liar.
The Kourtney & Kim Take Miami star's attorney Laura Wasser has filed new legal documents in their divorce battle, accusing the 28-year-old basketball player and his lawyer Lee Hutton of lying when they told the judge they never told her that he was determined to bring their case to trial so he could "blow the lid off reality TV."
The 32-year-old beauty and her lawyer also strongly insinuated that Kris' team has been threatening to use their divorce to "expose" Kim's reality series via the trial, unless they secure an annulment and/or a financial settlement.
According to gossip website TMZ.com, Kim's high profile lawyer claims Mr. Hutton bluntly told her, "The Kardashians or Bunim-Murray (producers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians) do not want that to happen."
Kim Kardashian says her on-going divorce from Kris Humphries will be finalized this year, and admits it feels like an "expensive dream."
The former couple tied the knot in August 2011 before the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star filed for divorce 72 days later and their separation has been dragging on ever since. E! has released the first ten minutes of the new series of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, and Kim finally opens up about the on-going legal battle.
"[It's] a really expensive dream that won't leave me alone. It's something that should be over and done with but unfortunately it's not that easy. I'm annoyed about it but I've taken it to a level that I can't stress about this. The judge says we will be divorced in 2013."
Since the split Kim started dating Kanye West in April last year and the couple are expecting their first baby.
Kris Humphries is reportedly dragging out his divorce from Kim Kardashian to hurt her.
While Kim, 32, is expecting her first child with rapper Kanye West, her marriage to Kris can't be officially dissolved until Kris agrees to settle the matter and he has allegedly told friends he is in no rush to end it. "He brags to everyone that he has that power. He's said it a million times. They can't go to court until his basketball season is over, so he tells people that he is in control of her misery. When he found out about the baby, he was bragging to all of his friends that he wasn't going to 'allow' her to be divorced when she had the baby. He intends to tell his attorney when they set a trial date next month that he can't do it until late summer. It's all planned and calculated," a source told The New York Daily News.
However, Kim wants to remove Kris from her life completely, so that she can focus on moving on with Kanye and their baby. "It's upsetting for her, but she's still not going to give in. Kim's a fighter and even though a lot of people think that Kim took advantage of Kris it was the other way around. She did love him and she gave him 100 per cent so there's no way she's going to turn around and say it was a fraud - that would be lying to the court," an insider said.
Kanye West is sick of Kim Kardashian's divorce drama.
The "Mercy" rapper desperately wants to propose to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, but feels like he has to wait until her divorce from Kris Humphries, her husband of 72 days, comes through.
"The only thing he wants to give Kim for Christmas he cant ... he wants her to be free from this b******t dude. It's been going on way too long and he hates this. Really son, you don't understand how much he despises him. He hates this dude with a passion," a source said.
Kanye is hopeful Kris will back down and accept a divorce rather than pushing for an annulment on the grounds of "fraud" and when Kim is officially a free woman, friends believe he will immediately pop the question.
Kris Humphries is "moving forward" from his 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian.
The Brooklyn Nets basketball star wed the reality TV beauty in a glittering summer ceremony last year, only to split up just weeks later. He now accepts the decision to tie the knot with Kim was a "bad" one, but he does believe the short union happened for "a reason."
"Some people just make bad decisions and you just know it's not what's meant to be. The decisions that you make, you obviously make for a reason. Everything in life for me has just been moving forward," he said in an interview with the new issue of Page Six.
Despite his short marriage, Kris is still hopeful he will have a family and kids of his own at some point, although he has no "timetable" for it: "I think everyone wants a family of their own one day. You're at the point in your life when all of your friends are married and stuff. For me, at least, everyone runs their own race. You can't put a timetable on it."
Kim Kardashian has branded her ex Kris Humphries a "cancer" she wants out of her life for good. The 31-year-old socialite is sick of dealing with the basketball player - who she dumped in October 2011 after just 72 days of marriage - and wants her divorce to go through quickly she can forget about their disastrous romance.
A court hearing took place on Wednesday as part of ongoing divorce proceedings between the former couple after afterwards Kim had some harsh words for Kris, 27, afterwards. According to sources, Kim said, "Kris is the first person I ever had to break-up with and that f***ed with my emotions." Speaking about when the cracks started to appear in their relationship, according to TMZ.com, she added, "He told our producers he would destroy my career and me if the show wasn't edited right. He's a cancer."
Kris Humphries' legal team hid a subpoena in a delivery box for Kanye West.
Lawyers acting for the basketball star and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian appeared in court today as part of ongoing divorce proceedings and the reality TV star's lawyer Laura Wasser revealed the ploy to the judge.
According to the lawyer, Kris' representatives tried to serve the subpoena to the rapper by putting it into a box from department store Nortstrom and having it sent to his girlfriend Kim's house. Ms. Wasser also complained that her client has already racked up a $250,000 bill in attorney's fees yet it is unclear what Kris - who is seeking an annulment as he claims the couple's 72-day marriage was a fraud - is trying to achieve in dragging out the proceedings.
She added that there was evidence to confirm reports that Kris and his legal team want to put reality TV on trial, noting they had also served Kim's mother and manager Kris Jenner with a subpoena as well as NBC Universal and Bunim/Murray, which produces the Kardashian reality shows.
