Kris Humphries reportedly decided to settle his divorce with Kim Kardashian after realising he would probably lose big time and face a large financial payout if he continued to pursue the matter.
Kris Humphries reportedly realised he didn’t have a chance in the world to win his divorce battle with Kim Kardashian.
The 28-year-old professional basketball player and the 32-year-old reality star were engaged in a bitter separation process that spanned over a year and a half.
Kris contended he wanted an annulment not a simple divorce, as he believed Kim used their marriage to generate publicity.
On Friday the pair came to a divorce agreement.
Apparently Kris finally relented because going to trial could have destroyed his future plans.
“Kris didn’t want [his basketball] team impacted by his personal life,” a source told Radar Online.
“If the Nets advanced in the playoffs, the trial would have taken place during the games and basketball comes first for Kris.
“He also realised that he didn’t have a chance in hell of proving that Kim defrauded him. In the end, his lawyers were able to finally make him recognise that not only would he be missing out on the playoffs with the Nets, but would likely be ordered to pay Kim’s legal fees.
“Kris recognised it was a s**t sandwich and chose to settle.”
Kim tweeted she “Couldn’t be happier” the divorce saga is over.
According to insiders there are still steps left to take in the process before the relationship is officially over.
“The settlement agreement hasn’t even been drawn up yet,” the insider said.
“Judge [Hank] Goldberg will be presented with the settlement once both Kim and Kris sign off on it. Then, he must add his signature. Only then will the divorce be final.”
The settlement agreement has a mandatory submission date of June 19.
Kim is currently pregnant with rapper Kanye West’s baby and is due to give birth in July.
