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."

No matter what happens, either way TMZ has lost all respect. After being 100% biased in every story about the Trashians no one will ever believe anything they say about anything or anyone. Fact.

Here's the real story:

Recap on the Kanye timeline...
Kim files for divorce from Kris 10/31/11
Kim and Kanye an item three months later.
Kim buys Kanye $750,000 Lamborghini for his birthday in June after only 3 months of dating.
Kim hoping for a marriage proposal for her birthday in October(huge fail)... Prompting her to get pregnant(trap?)before Kanye lose interest. Do the math, baby is due July. That is why Kanye is all sour grapes and defeated.
Kim thought the baby would secure her place in hip hop royalty. She was already planning play dates with Blue Ivy.
Everything the Ktrashian does are calculated.

KMZ has a history of speculating in favor of the Kartrashians, and with a very low percentage of being correct. Harvey has lost credibility with America.

Kris Humphries still isn't saying "HOW HIGH" when Kardashians say "JUMP".

Kris doesn't appear all that bright, but Kim is the devil's spawn and she REALLY needs to feel some pain for her self-centered decisions.

Kim is so desperate for this case not to go to trial. She knows she will be cross examined, and most of all the trials transcripts will become public. If Kim goes on trial and knowingly commits perjury just for the sake of her "brand", I will find it absolutely comical.

More spin slanted toward the Kardashians here on TMZ. The notion that Kris Humphries has nothing and he'd better settle this matter because, well Kim's **** is golden. Sick of it and this is the last straw. When it comes to the Kardashians, TMZ has a bias they don't even try to hide anymore. It's sickening and I am done here and I'm taking about 100 friends and business associates with me. TMZ=The Kardashian Media Group. After more than five years, I am outa here for good.

I'm sorry but I think both are equally stupid. and for the record, I don't find her whole butt thing attractive. I've clicked thru pics, it's just weird. she's pretty in the face and has gorgeous hair - but they butt hugging outfits she wears are obnoxious.

Kris needs to let go. Kim is moving on with her life.... If he is claiming fraud in their marriage, then he needs to own up that he had an affair and a child resulted in that. Everyone is so set on blaming Kim for everything... Read that facts...and then point fingers. He is then one that is being a big baby over this.........

Allow me to redact my last post. It wasn't this post that was the last straw for me reading news here. It was the post on how much or how little hair Kim Kardashian now has on her body that did it for me. I've never seen a news group so partial to a celeb. What would make them think we care about how much body hair she has? She's simply not that important to anyone but the employees at TMZ.
