Well it appears Kris Humphries won’t have to miss the NBA playoffs after all. After spending 536 days fighting over a staged 72 day marriage, it appears Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian has reached an agreement. Its officially over.
According to TMZ, Humphries walked away from this marriage with exactly what he came into with absolutely nothing.
Here’s what sources connected with the case tell TMZ:
— Kris gets NO money from Kim. As we’ve reported … he had previously demanded $7 mil.
— Kris dropped his demand for an annulment based on fraud.
— Each party will pay their own attorney’s fees.
This is not just a settlement. It’s a WIN for Kim and her lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser.
In addition, it appears Humphries will have to cough up a few more dollars due to being a no-show at a hearing which was healed last week. However Kim asked the court to drop and it, and in return Humphries was able to dodge yet another bullet.
What was the point of all of this? Who knows, but one thing is clear these two individuals are happy to have this burden behind them. Now the only thing is needed will be signatures on the dotted line and a receipt for the nearly $300,000 both parties spent on lawyers. Then they could finally close this chapter of their lives unless they wanted to watch dreadful episodes of themselves during happier times on television, which is not likely.
This is good news for Humphries. Hopefully now he can obtain his starting position back, but then again I doubt it.
