LOS ANGELES: The contested divorce of reality television star Kim Kardashian and NBA basketball player Kris Humphries will head to trial in May, more than a year and a half after the couple separated, a judge in Los Angeles ruled
The couple, who broke up after just 72 days of marriage, have been unable to agree on the terms for a divorce. Humphries instead has demanded an annulment, alleging that Kardashian had no intention of keeping the marriage.
Kardashian, 32, and Humphries, 28, were married in a made-for-TV wedding in August 2011. Kardashian filed for divorce 72 days later citing irreconcilable differences.
Kardashian started dating rapper Kanye West in April last year and is now expecting.
Hollywood celebrities usually settle their divorces through negotiation rather than at a trial that can fuel publicity. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes took less than two weeks to settle their divorce last year, and kept the personal and financial details of their marriage under wraps.
