|Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian|
The NBA player likely will file the court papers within days, according to PEOPLE's sources.
Rather than pursue a divorce as Kardashian has, the NBA player's ultimate intent is to annul the marriage, clearing the record of ever being married to the reality star.
Apparently, this would be a change of heart for Humphries.
Shortly after Kardashian traveled to Minnesota and met with Humphries and the pastor who married them, sources close to Humphries insisted he intended to try and move on and sign the divorce papers.
Just 72 days after a lavish wedding, Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce from Humphries, 26, on Oct. 31, citing irreconcilable differences.
The troubles flared almost immediately and were on display in the season premiere of Kourtney & Kim Take Manhattan.
