(LOS ANGELES) — Kim Kardashian is one step closer to a divorce from her estranged husband, Kris Humphries.
On Friday, a Los Angeles judge set a divorce trial date of May 6, according to E! Online. The trial is expected to last three to five days.
The Brooklyn Nets forward unsuccessfully attempted to delay the trial until after his basketball season is over.
Humphries has sought to have the marriage annulled, claiming that Kardashian married him for publicity. The reality TV star has denied the allegation.
Humphries was represented in court Friday by attorney Marshall Waller, who filed paperwork the day before to withdraw from the case. It appears he is still representing Humphries.
Kardashian and Humphries have been ordered to appear in person for a settlement conference on April 12.
Kardashian filed for divorce in late October of 2011, 72 days after she tied the knot with Humphries.
The trial will take place approximately two months before Kardashian is expected to give birth to her first child with rapper Kanye West.
