LA County Superior CourtReality TV star Kim Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries has officially ended after an extended legal battle.

Earlier this week, a judge at the Los Angeles County Superior Court formerly divorced the couple.

Kardashian, now 32, married basketball player Kris Humphries in August 2011 in a ceremony later shown on television. But shortly after the broadcast, in October the same year, Kardasian filed for divorce, after just 72 days of marriage. Humphries, who plays for the Brooklyn Nets, responded with a claim that the marriage should be annulled on the grounds of “fraud”.

It was not until April this year, after 18 months of legal wrangling, that the pair finaly reached a  settlement, shortly before divorce was due to go to trial. Terms of the settlement were not released but the former couple had signed a prenuptial agreement.

Season 8 of reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians began last Sunday.

Kim Kardashian is now in a relationship with hip hop artist Kanye West. She is expecting their first child.
