Katie Price was granted divorce from her second husband Alex Reid over his unreasonable behaviour, in a court proceeding that lasted just 55 seconds.
A judge at the High Court in London awarded the glamour model-turned-businesswoman a decree nisi.Neither party was present for the pronouncement of the decree by District Judge Anne Aitken, who ruled the marriage had "irretrievably broken down."
The estranged couple will have to wait until five to six weeks before their divorce is officially formalised with a decree absolute, the Daily Mail reported.
In a question-and-answer style divorce document Price was asked if the behaviour of the respondent - Alex Aristides Reid - was continuing. She put a cross in the box for 'yes'.
No information was included in documents made public today about the unreasonable behaviour.
In the section asking her to enter her occupation, Price describes herself as "TV personality, author, businesswoman".The couple married in Las Vegas in February 2010, shortly after cagefighter Reid finished a stint on Celebrity Big Brother.
They had been dating for around seven months when they tied the knot.In January last year, the 33-year-old mother of three - also known as Jordan - confirmed she had separated from Reid.
"Alex and I have had a number of difficulties over the past few months. I accept that these were in part caused by my marrying too quickly - we all make mistakes and this was one," she announced in a statement.
"However, Alex changed from the man I fell in love with and some of his behaviour became difficult for me to understand and caused issues.I have tried to help him with these issues but they have put a considerable strain on our relationship," she said.
