LOS ANGELES (AP) — Attorneys did not reach a settlement in Kim Kardashian's divorce case after settlement negotiations that were attended by the reality star but not her estranged husband Kris Humphries.
Humphries' attorneys declined to comment on settlement discussions Friday but said a May 6 trial date remains. A judge sealed settlement discussions, but any agreement would have been put on the record after the hearing.
Kardashian was flanked by deputies as she left the courthouse shortly around noon.
The reality star wants a divorce to end her 72-day marriage to Humphries, but the NBA player wants it annulled. He claims the marriage was based on fraud, which he would have to prove at trial.
Humphries, a power forward for the Brooklyn Nets, has not yet laid out his specifics to support his fraud claim, but his former attorney has said Humphries wants an annulment because of his belief that Kardashian only married him because of her reality show.
Kardashian and her lawyer have denied the accusation.
The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star arrived under heavy security and was brought into the courtroom through a back entrance. Her hair was tied back in a ponytail and she kept her hands crossed on her lap while she listened to Judge Hank Goldberg explain to reporters that the hearing would be closed.
"I always wanted to be a juror," she joked to deputies before taking her seat.
Kardashian is expecting a child with boyfriend Kanye West later this year. She appeared in court wearing white pants and a long ornate gray jacket, but was not accompanied by West or any members of her famous family.
Her mother, Kris Jenner, is expected to testify on her daughter's behalf at the trial. Humphries has not yet filed his witness list for the trial, which is expected to last a week.
