Humphries didn’t have to fly to L.A. for the settlement meeting – which Kardashian attended – and instead was at the Nets’ practice in New Jersey.
He was hoping to take the divorce to court, which was scheduled for May 6, but realized he would’ve had to miss games in order to get his marriage annulled on the premise that it was a sham created for reality TV.
Kardashian, now expecting a baby with rapper Kanye West, wanted a regular divorce based on their prenup. In the settlement, Kim K looks like she won while Humphries caved.
Humphries immediately tweeted his joy that the whole ordeal was over — even though it means Kardashian proved there was no fraud involved in the marriage.
Couldn't be happier!

Humphries filed for divorce on Oct. 31, 2011 and wanted an annulment of the union citing the whole marriage was a sham and a publicity stunt to boost ratings for her TV show.
"I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision," the buxom brunette said after filing her petition. "I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned."
The Nets were just as happy about the prospect of Humphries not missing games or practices following a meeting on the subject, making player's decision easier. He had skipped a previous divorce settlement meeting on April 12 to be with the Nets in Indianapolis.
"There was no way Kris would miss anything with the Nets," said a source close to the power forward. "The team means more to him than this, so this really wasn’t a tough decision for him."
Finally the news Humphries and most Nets fans have waited a long time for — and it gets that cumbersome Kardashian tag off his name and away from the team. Now if they could only divorce him from that soft label as well.
