One year and seven months after filing to end her marriage to Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian’s divorce has been finalized. According to People magazine, the reality star’s divorce was granted on Monday, June 4th. Kardashian, best known for her family’s reality show, filed for divorce seventy-two days after marrying NBA basketball player Humphries in 2011.
A solid prenuptial was signed before the couple married, so why did a simple split become an ordeal for Kardashian? The reason for the contested divorce was Humphries sought an annulment, claiming his marriage to Kardashian was a fraud. He stated his now former wife married him to boost ratings for the Kardashian’s reality show and to promote the wedding special that accompanied it.
Unfortunately for Humphries, the court didn’t see it his way and he received no extra cash in the April 19th settlement deal. After the settlement, Humphries then decided to drop the annulment argument, thus avoiding a trial.
Kardashian, 32, who is expecting a baby girl with rapper Kanye West in July, is, according to her mother Kris Jenner, “in a happy place” in her life.
Humphries told reporters at the “Man of Steel” premiere in New York, that he learned a lot in his highly publicized divorce from Kardashian, and that “It feels great,” to have the drama now behind him.
