It's official: Kim Kardashian's divorce case is finally over, and reports say it's a slam dunk for the reality TV star.
As we all know, NBA star Kris Humphries liked it and put a ring on it, but Kim has been trying to take it off -- for a while.
Today, a judge dissolved Kim Kardashian's marriage to Kris Humphries. Here's what we know about Kim Kardashian's divorce settlement:
Like Kris and Kim's case, most divorce cases reach a settlement agreement before the case needs to go to trial. Once a divorcing couple and their attorneys are able to negotiate and resolve all of the issues in their divorce, the couple's decisions are finalized in detail in a written settlement agreement.
After a judge approves the divorcing couple's settlement agreement, the judge gives the couple a divorce decree that shows that the divorce is final and summarizes how the key issues have been resolved.
Details of Kris and Kim's settlement agreement weren't disclosed during the brief court hearing, which was to be expected. High-profile celebrities often have confidential divorce settlement agreements to keep their financial information and interests under wraps.
But that doesn't stop the gossip-mongers in the courtroom from dishing details. Sources connected with the case say Kris is getting zilch from Kim, TMZ reports. This is a major win for Kim K., since Kris had previously demanded $7 million.
Sources also say that Kris dropped his demand for an annulment based on fraud, and that each party will pay their own attorney's fees, TMZ reports.
Overall, this should put huge smiles on Kim and her Dissolution Superwoman lawyer, Laura Wasser.
But Kris Humphries can also breathe a small sigh of relief. The judge was going to slap Kris with a hefty penalty for being a no-show last week at a settlement conference. But Kim asked the court to forget it, and the judge dropped the order, TMZ reports.
