NBA player Kris Humphries (l.) and his wife reality TV personality Kim Kardashian appear on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" at NBC Studios on October 4, 2011
Kris Humphries went MIA.
Kim Kardashian's estranged ex was nowhere to be seen Friday at a mandatory hearing in Los Angeles required by law before their divorce case proceeds to trial. Both parties had been ordered to appear for the hearing when a judge finally set the date for their divorce trial.
Kardashian arrived wearing a long silver tunic over white pants, her hair pulled back in a high ponytail. She look solemn sitting alone in the jury box.
Humphries' team of attorneys was present, but it was unclear why the Brooklyn Nets baller was a no-show.
Judge Hank Goldberg then moved to close the court and exclude the media. He explained that "the nature of settlement and settlement conferences under the evidence code are confidential."
None of the attorneys objected, and the media were asked to leave.
Earlier this month, a judge denied Kardashian's request to bump up the trial date for the divorce after she claimed to have a prior commitment in New York City. That court showdown remains set for May 6.
