Kim Kardashian officially divorced from Kris Humphries
KIM Kardashian's divorce from Kris Humphries has been finalised.
The reality TV star, who is set to give birth to a baby girl with her rapper boyfriend of more than one year, Kanye West, next month, reached a settlement with the 28-year-old basketball player in April to avoid a trial, but their divorce only became official when the judgement was entered in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday night (03.06.13).
According to People.com, the terms of the divorce will not be revealed, but the former couple did have a prenuptial agreement.
Kim filed for divorce from Kris on October 31, 2011 after just 72 days of marriage.
Their split dragged on for more than a year and a half because Kris originally wanted an annulment, on the grounds of "fraud".
Friends close to the Brooklyn Nets previously revealed he decided not to go to trial because he didn't want his basketball career to suffer.
An insider said: "Kris didn't want the team impacted by his personal life.
"If the Nets advanced in the playoffs, the trial would have taken place during the games and basketball comes first for Kris.
"He also knew that he didn't have a chance in hell of proving that Kim defrauded him.
"In the end, his lawyers were able to finally make him see that not only would he be missing out on the playoffs with the Nets, but would likely be ordered to pay Kim's legal fees.
"Kris then chose to settle."
