Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce can proceed
CNN confirms Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries have received a divorce petition from the Los Angeles Superior Court judge, although the divorce will not be official until a judgment is entered, and Kim Kardashian will technically still be married to Humphries when her she gives birth this summer.
Kim Kardashian’s marriage was short, even by Hollywood’s standards. The marriage lasted a scant 72 days, but the separation and subsequent divorce has extended months after the divorce was officially filed in October of 2011. After Kim filed for divorce Humphries, an NBA basketball player, countered that the marriage should be annulled because Kim Kardashian had gotten married under fraudulent grounds to gain financial benefits.
In statements made by Kris’s Aunt and Uncle the annulment was Kris’s way of getting revenge, although this claim is not substantiated by Kris. It is also rumored that Kris’s lawyer quit the case because there was not enough evidence to substantiate a fraud claim.
Recently, Kris dropped his request for an annulment so the divorce proceedings could continue. Kris will not receive money from Kim Kardashian, per the terms of a prenuptial agreement. Unbelievably the divorce, which took 1 year, 5 months and 20 days, was 465 days longer than the marriage.
