Six weeks after reaching a settlement to end their marriage and nearly two years after calling it quits, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are officially divorced.
The battle to separate, which far outlasted the couple's 72-day marriage, reached a peak earlier this year around the time Kardashian announced she was pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West's child. Allegations of fraud, jealously and the threat of exposing personal information defined the long road to divorce for the reality star and NBA player. Humphries once vowed that he would settle for nothing less than an annulment of the marriage based on fraud, claiming that Kardashian engineered their whole relationship for television.
Needless to say, it got ugly.
Kardashian and Humphries reached a settlement in April and the judge presiding over the case allegedly told Kardashian, "congratulations on the dissolution of your marriage." The terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but the former couple did have a prenuptial agreement. A standard few weeks was required by law to finish the paperwork and make the dissolution official, and now both parties are free to move forward.
This is, of course, great news for Kardashian, who is expecting a baby girl with West this summer. Though the couple haven't yet talked publicly about getting engaged, today's news certainly clears the path from a legal standpoint for them to get married.
