Kim K/Kris Humphries Divorce

4/19/2013  9:16 AM PT -- And now it's official ... Kim and Kris are officially divorced.

gray-bar-update
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries could settle their never-ending divorce case as early as tomorrow ... TMZ has learned.

The fleeting lovebirds are both ordered to appear in court tomorrow for a settlement conference.  The big hang-up is that Kris has been fighting for an annulment based on alleged fraud, and Kim has steadfastly refused to go down that road.  She wants a clean, simple divorce.

Sources close to Kris say there are various factors that are softening his position, including:

-- There's an ironclad prenup, if the case goes to trial Kris will get NO money from Kim (although as we previously reported Kris has demanded $7 mil from her -- good luck with that).

-- After all the depositions and legal docs flying back and forth, no evidence has surfaced showing Kim defrauded Kris -- and that goes to the heart of his claim.

-- Kris is about to get nailed with monetary sanctions for being a no-show at the last hearing and, in the process, he's pissed off the judge who would be presiding over the divorce trial.

-- If the case goes to trial and Kris loses, he could be in the hole for as much as a million bucks in attorney's fees.  Sources tell us each side has already racked up $300k in lawyer's fees, and they'll spend another $200k if the case goes to trial.  We broke the story, if the case goes to trial and Kim wins, she'll ask the judge to make Kris pay HER lawyer's fees.

Our sources say it's by no means a done deal that the case is going to settle tomorrow, but as one source put it, "Kris is opening his eyes a little bit, and what he sees doesn't look good."

I've gotta stop coming to this site. KK just makes me too angry. This is supposed to be a celebrity site, not a site to promote nobodys into famous celebrity status via $$ donations from her mommy.

Why is this even a story? So really nothing new.. Also why have they been saying TMZ Live is going to be early today for over an hour without giving a time? Annoying, about to unfollow.

Kris' lawyer should look into making Harvey get on the stand and confess that the Kardashians are paying him to write stories. THAT would be great. "Can we can a step stool for Harvey?"

No Kimmie can concentrate on raising a child alone. It's pretty obvious Yeasty doesn't want anything to do with cow any more.

Um...but if all this is true...why would SHE settle?

Next time when listing reasons for a "settlement" try listing reasons, she sees for settling as well. Like...it would be majorly embarrassing for witnesses to take the stand and show the show is fake.
