Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries settle divorce

  • Reality TV star Kim Kardashian and NBA player Kris Humphries have settled their divorce, avoiding a trial due to take place next month, a Los Angeles County Superior Court spokeswoman said on Friday.

    Judge Hank Goldberg approved the divorce settlement for the couple, who split up after just 72 days following their TV special wedding in August 2011.

    Humphries, 28, had previously asked for an annulment and claimed that Kardashian, who cited irreconcilable difference, had no intention of keeping to the marriage, which was filmed for her reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

    Kardashian, 32, attended the hearing. Humphries, who plays for the Brooklyn Nets, did not. Terms of the divorce were not made public.

    The divorce is Kardashian's second. She was earlier married to music producer Damon Thomas for four years, separating in 2004.

    Kardashian started dating rapper Kanye West last April and is now nearly six months pregnant with her first child.
