CNN — Kim Kardashian's and Kris Humphries officially became divorced this week -- 20 months after she filed papers to end their 72-day marriage.
Los Angeles County Superior Court confirmed to CNN on Tuesday that the divorce became final Monday.

The August 20, 2011, wedding was aired in October on E! Entertainment in a two-part special titled "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event."
