Kardashian and Humphries: The High Road After a Long Divorce
Most couples get married with the hope of an enduring, happy marriage. In the case of reality television star Kim Kardashian and Brooklyn Nets basketball player Kris Humphries, the divorce lasted far longer than the marriage.
In April, the former celebrity couple agreed to settle their bitter public differences that focused not on the issues of marriage, but how it ended.
Ms. Kardashian, now expecting her first child with musician Kanye West, filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences just 72 days after her August 20, 2011 wedding. Apparently surprised by the announcement, Mr. Humphries reportedly refused to divorce Ms. Kardashian, seeking to have the marriage annulled based on his claim of fraud.
Both Ms. Kardashian and Mr. Humphries have considerable net worth and executed a prenuptial agreement. While details of the settlement are confidential, some suggest Mr. Humphries had doubts about his ability to prove his claim of fraud and chose to end the long-running feud.
While guarding the fortune of Ms. Kardashian, her prenuptial agreement could not protect her from the personal claims of an angry spouse that continued to impact her long after the romantic relationship had ended.
