LATEST: Hotel heiress Nicky Hilton is a single girl once again, after officially ending her brief marriage to New York businessman TODD ANDREW MEISTER.

Yesterday (09NOV04), a judge in Las Vegas - where the pair wed just under three months ago - granted the newlyweds an annulment.

A statement from the former couple's representatives reads, "Both parties have ended the marriage amicably, and they remain good friends."

Hilton, 21, married Meister, 33, at the Las Vegas Wedding Chapel on 15 August (04) in a surprise ceremony attended by her older sister PARIS and actress Bijou Phillips.

It's not clear when the pair filed the annulment paperwork in Clark County Family Court. A court spokesman says a case under the name of Todd Meister was filed on Monday (08NOV04) but the judge sealed it.
