Let's look back at a timeline of their 72-days marriage … and prolonged parting.
After briefly dating male model Gabriel Aubry (Halle Berry's ex), Kardashian meets the NBA basketball player while she's filming "Kourtney & Kim Take New York"
February 7, 2011:
They go public with their romance by posing for photographers at a Prince concert in Manhattan.
Kardashian arrives at her Beverly Hills home to find Humphries in her bedroom, on bended knee, with "Will You Marry Me?" written out in rose petals. He gave her a custom-designed, 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring.
After just a 90-day engagement, the couple tie the knot in an over-the-top affair at an estate in Montecito, California. The star-studded event was filmed for a two-part, four-hour reality TV special on E!.
"Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event" airs and it's a ratings hit, drawing 4.4 million viewers the first night and 4 million the second.
After just 72 days of marriage, Kardashian files for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences," and lists their separation date as that day. Humphries issues his own statement, saying, “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce.
November 1, 2011:
Kardashian speaks out about the split for the first time in a post on her blog.
Kardashian visits a "devastated" Humphries at his home in Minnesota. While there is speculation they would possibly reunite, it is reported the visit is to try to ease hostility between them as it was already becoming contentious.
Humphries files a response to Kardashian's legal papers, seeking an annulment — rather than a divorce. In a bold move, he claims their 72-day marriage was based on "fraud" with Kardashian trying to boost the ratings of her reality TV shows.
Rumors swirl that Kardashian is dating Kanye West after he flies her to Paris for a fashion show. While she initially plays coy about the romance, they go public the next month.
In court to hash out the divorce settlement, Kardashian's lawyer Laura Wasser tells the judge that Humphries is stalling the proceedings, which should be quick and easy because the couple — who is not there — has a prenup.
August 15, 2012:
Lawyers for the couple face off in court again. This time, Humphries' camp blames the opposing side for delaying the process.
November 28, 2012:
Over a year after Kardashian filed for divorce, both legal teams meet in court again.
December 30, 2012:
During one of his concerts, West announces that Kardashian is pregnant.
Following the baby news, Kardashian's lawyer files a motion to set a trial date as soon as possible — or grant a legal end to the marriage while the couple's financials are sorted out. "I do not want to be married to [Humphries] when I have my baby,"
February 4, 2013:
Humphries' lawyer files a response, saying they are not ready to go to trial, and blasting Kardashian for using her pregnancy as a reason to accelerate the divorce.
Kardashian's lawyer fires back in a 217-page response.Humphries "cannot continue to hold the Court and [Kardashian] hostage thru his own lack of diligence in preparing his case for trial,"Wasser writes.
Humphries' lawyer asks to be removed from the case, citing "irreconcilable differences" which caused a "irremediable breakdown" of their attorney-client relationship.
February 15, 2013:
The judge finally sets a trial date — May 6.
For the first time since in 17 months, Humphries and Kardashian are supposed to come face to face in court for a mandatory divorce settlement conference. He is a no-show. The judge sets a sanction hearing to consider fining him for missing the appearance.
Kardashian accompanies her lawyer to court and both sides announce to the judge that they've reached a settlement. They are granted a dissolution of marriage — not an annulment — due to "irreconcilable differences."
Humphries, who was reportedly seeking $7 million from his now ex-wife, will receive no money and each party will pay their own attorney's fees.
