Today marks what would have been the one-year anniversary for Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries's marriage. The couple split after just 72 days, after dating for only six months. But now, in an ironic turn of events, today's date is significant for Humphries for a new sad reason. The basketball star's parents have announced they're calling it quits, too, with his mother Debra filing for divorce earlier this month.

The mother-of-three filed in Minnesota following the break-down of her relationship with Kris' father William, according to documents seen by TMZ.

The business-minded couple owns several Five Guys Burgers and Fries restaurants throughout the state.

The news comes on what would have been Kris and Kim's first wedding anniversary, following their sumptuous celebrations in front of 440 guests, including the likes of Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato and Ryan Seacrest.

The Brooklyn Nets player is currently seeking an annulment of his marriage, claiming it was staged for Kim's reality show "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."

A court date has been set for November, meaning the couple's divorce in unlikely to be settled before next year.

Kim and Kris, who became engaged in May last year after dating for six months, married in a lavish ceremony  which was documented in a spin off reality TV show 'Kim's Fairytale wedding'.

Their marriage breakdown was shown on "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" which subsequently aired in January.

Kim made three costume changes during the course of the celebrations - each dress an opulent $20,000 Vera Wang creation. She also wore a reported $10 million worth of jewelry for the event.

Another $2 million was reportedly spent on flowers alone. Though it is believed the family more than made back what they spent on the wedding, as they ended up earning $17.9 million from the wedding due to coverage deals.

Humphries is claiming the Kardashians staged the lavish multi-million dollar wedding for publicity of Kim's "Keeping up with the Kardashians" brand. He says she used him for fame and fortune. Even a former publicist for Kim claimed the same thing.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries will likely continue the fight over their divorce when 2013 comes around. A judge granted the NBA star a November court date. However, things are a bit messy in the split; tons of allegations are swirling around. At the rate their proceedings are going, his parents may resolve their split first.

Kardashian is now dating singer Kanye West, and is spending her "anniversary" with him on vacation in Hawaii. With her recent Tweet of, "Love always wins," we wonder if she's got marriage on her mind ...
