Kim K/Kris Humphries Divorce

POSSIBLE SETTLEMENT!!!

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'm not buying it. Where this "story" doesn't hold up IMO - TMZ reports (here) that Kris will be hit with financial sanctions for no-showing the meeting last week. HOWEVER on TMZ Live (last Friday) TMZ (Harvey/Charles) were saying the "financial sanctions" are minimal.....now it's being spun like it's going to run in the 10s of thousands!

If this settles it will be because Kim Kardashian knows she is going to lose big time.

Kris should pay Kim's lawyer fees, because obviously the woman had moved on and he was the hold-up. Fraud or not. If a person doesn't want you, let them go!

Another story right from the Kartrashians. If Kris gets hit with sanctions for a no show I'll bet they are less then $5000. From what I read everywhere else it sounds like his case just keeps getting better.

I love how most people think it's fraud but the court isn't ruling that way...... like OJ, Kardashian connection.

She is a fraud and the case should be annulled. KH should receive 1/2 of the money for the 4 months that they lived together as husband and wife. Not that tough.

If this was about money, then Kris would have been took the check and left. TMZ you all are pathetic. I am #TeamKris all the way but I want this to get settled so he can focused on helping his team throughout the playoff. Basketball is more important than some skank that should have stayed a bedroom hoe.
