Kim Kardashian is likely celebrating now that her divorce from Kris Humphries has officially been settled.

TMZ reports that the couple, who were married for a mere 72 days, have finally reached a settlement in their year-and-a-half long divorce battle.

According to the website, while the terms of the agreement have no been disclosed, the judge decided that Humphries, 27, won't have to pay any penalties for being a no show at last week's settlement hearing.

While there were rumors the case was close to being settled, it's somewhat surprising that the case didn't end up heading to trial as planned, since the Brooklyn Nets forward was adamant about getting an annulment, claiming that the marriage was a sham. However, in recent days, it appears as though Humphries finally realized he didn't have a leg to stand on.

"Kris is opening his eyes a little bit, and what he sees doesn't look good," a source told TMZ on April 18. "There is little to no evidence backing his claim that he was duped into marrying the reality star for ratings."

Sources connected to the case also told TMZ that Humphries did in fact drop his demand for an annulment, and will get no money from his ex, as they had an iron-clad prenup. According to the website, as the pair signed the papers making their divorce official, the judge told Kardashian, "Congratulations on your dissolution."

Kardashian, who is pregnant with boyfriend Kanye West's baby, is no doubt relieved she can get on with her life. During a recent interview with David Letterman, the 32-year-old spoke about her bitter divorce battle:

"I can't speak for Kris, but I just want him to be happy and I want us to move on, and that's really what I want, is just to move on."
