Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce final

Kim Kardashian’s divorce from her ex-husband Kris Humphries has been finalised in the courts after the pair engaged in a separation battle that dragged on for over a year.

The reality star ended her marriage with the athlete in 2011 after just 72 days of marriage.

The pair then engaged in a long and bitter court battle over their separation. Kris initially insisted Kim used their union for publicity and demanded an annulment before relenting and agreeing to a simple divorce.

People magazine reports the Los Angeles Superior Court entered a judgment Monday night that officially puts an end to the marriage.

Kim and Kris reached a settlement on their divorce in April to avoid a trial on the matter.

The pair’s legal feud took place for a year and a half.

Terms of the divorce were not publicly revealed, but it is known the former couple signed a prenuptial agreement.

Kim is currently pregnant with rapper Kanye West’s child and she is due to give birth next month.

It was previously reported that Kris softened on his annulment demands due to fear of wasting time and money should the case have gone to trial.

“Kris didn’t want [his basketball] team impacted by his personal life,” a source told Radar Online at the time of the settlement in April.

“If the Nets advanced in the playoffs, the trial would have taken place during the games and basketball comes first for Kris.

“He also realised 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 recognise 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.”
