Kim Kardashian Divorce Finally Settled: Kris Humphries Comes out the Loser
After a 72 day marriage, the divorce proceeding between reality star Kim Kardashian and Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries took nearly a year and a half to resolve. But at last, it has been settled. Not surprisingly, Humphries came out the big loser.
Humphries was initially seeking $7 million, an annulment, and attorney’s fees. However, the settlement he has signed will get him none of that. He gets no money, the marriage will not be annulled, and he must pay his own attorney fees. He does play in the NBA, so it’s not as if he can’t afford his lawyer.
When Kardashian filed for divorce less than 3 months into their marriage, Humphries sought the annulment due to a belief that the marriage was a fraud entered into by Kardashian to boost the ratings and popularity of her reality show, “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
However, sources close to Humphries indicated that in recent weeks, he has come to realize that it would be extremely difficult to prove the marriage was a fraud. In addition, their divorce trial was scheduled to begin in a few weeks. If the Brooklyn Nets advance beyond the first round of the playoffs, the trial would keep him out of action. Right now, his primary focus is on the playoffs, not his bitter divorce with Kardashian.
