Kim Kardashian Finally Gets Her Divorce

The lavish August 2011wedding and marriage of reality show star Kim Kardashian and NBA Brooklyn Nets power forward Kris Humphries is finally over. Kim decided to call it quits after the couple had been married only 72 days. Kris wanted out stating that Kim faked the marriage for the sake of her reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians”.

Humphries, 28, failed to appear at a mandatory hearing on April 12 to work out the terms of the divorce. He had previously stated in court that April and May would not be good times for him to appear in court because of the NBA playoffs and finals.

Since Humphries was a no-show in court, it gave Kim, 32, the upper hand in receiving a divorce approval from Superior Court Judge Hank Goldberg. The Judge asked Kim if the signature on the three page settlement was hers. She responded yes and she also said yes when asked if she had discussed the matter with her lawyer about not going to trial. She was asked if irreconcilable differences occurred during the marriage. She said yes.

The judge’s final question was can this marriage be saved? Kim said no. The terms of the divorce settlement were not disclosed however, Judge Goldberg did congratulate Kris’s attorney, Benjamin Johnson, and Kim’s attorney Laura Wasser for reaching a settlement. Judge Goldberg informed both attorneys that the divorce would not be final until papers are drawn up and signed.
