Kim Kardashian was escorted out of a Los Angeles court house flanked by ten LA County sheriffs.
Walking directly in the middle of the group of men, Kim Kardashian, 32, made sure she had the utmost protection as she made her way to a chauffeured car.
The reality star wore her most demure maternity-style outfit yet for the court hearing.
Gone were the low-cut tops, tight dresses and leather trousers, and instead Kim Kardashian opted for a decidedly conservative look.
She slipped on a grey patterned jacket, which was buttoned all the way up to her neck and billowed out at the waist into a somewhat baby doll style.
Kim Kardashian wore the dress over a pair of white trousers and accessorized with demure black stilettos.
Scraping her hair back into a tight ponytail, her features looked stronger than ever and she highlighted her famous pout with lashings of red lipstick.
With a look of steely determination on her face, Kim Kardashian star appeared as though she had just come back from battle.
The usually smiling star stared straight ahead and put on a pout.
It appears as though Kim Kardashian came out as the winner in her first round battle with estranged husband Kris Humphries.
Kris Humphries had been intent on taking his ex-wife to the cleaners in their divorce case, but he seemingly dropped the ball after not showing up to court on Friday.
While Kim Kardashian arrived punctually for the hearing, Kris Humphries was still in New York.
A source told TMZ that the NBA player was spotted in New York at 1 a.m. on Friday morning.
The source said that Kris Humphries looked “visibly upset”.
The settlement conference was scheduled for 8.30 a.m. in LA, but the only New York to Los Angeles bound flight on Friday morning was 6.30 a.m., arriving in at LAX at 9.15 a.m.
That would mean that Kris Humphries would have been late for the hearing anyway.
According to TMZ, while the court was told that Kris Humphries was detained in New York, Judge Goldberg, who was presiding over the case, was unimpressed and set a sanction hearing, which means Kris could face fines for not turning up.
During the court hearing, Kim Kardashian reportedly sat in the jury box, her hands crossed on her lap as the case was called.
A judge sealed the proceedings, citing rules mandating confidentiality for divorce settlement discussions.
Attorneys did not reach a settlement. Kris Humphries’ attorneys declined to comment on settlement discussions but said a May 6 trial date remains.
While Kris Humphries, who is seeking an annulment based on his claim the pair’s 72-day marriage was fraudulent, did not appear in court, he was represented by three attorneys.
Kim Kardashian arrived in court under heavy security and was brought into the courtroom through a back entrance.
