Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has finally reached a divorce agreement with estranged husband Kris Humphries to officially end their 72-day marriage. The socialite, who is pregnant with her rapper boyfriend Kanye West's baby, has been locked in a bitter legal wrangle with Humphries ever since she filed to end their shortlived marriage in October, 2011, with the basketball player alleging she used their televised nuptials to boost ratings and her earnings. Kardashian denied the claims. The case was due to head to trial on 6 May (13), but the former lovers have managed to avoid a court showdown and have reached an out-of-court settlement. The deal was confirmed by a judge in Los Angeles on Friday (19Apr13), one week after the Brooklyn Nets player made headlines for skipping a mandatory divorce hearing, according to Entertainment Tonight. Details of the agreement have yet to be released.
