Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce

Newlyweds Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries at LAX departing for a reported European honeymoon

The rumors that I was dismissing as just promotional propaganda are surprisingly true. Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from NBA baller Kris Humphries!

Ryan Seacrest made the following tweet that is sending shockwaves through the celebriverse:

This high profile marriage lasted all of 72 days as the official date of separation will be today, October 31st, 2011.

Kim and Kris were married on August 20 in a monster ceremony that is reportedly to have cost around $10 million. Kim had a prenup and is citing the standard irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. She has hired heavy hitter attorney Laura Wasser who has went to bat for Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Ryan Reynolds among others.

Nothing about what is being reported so far indicates any feeling of extreme bitterness or anger between the two. It looks like they just realized it was probably a bad idea.

We’ll update you once more info comes in which I’m sure it will.

UPDATE: Kim’s official statement:

“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”

    Does this mean that the E channel will finally quit showing that horrible wedding every other day?

    • Kristina

      I AGREE!! I didn’t watch it when it first aired because I didn’t want to watch it, stop showing it! UGH! Khole was right the whole time, I think Kris only wanted $ and fame. I knew that marriage wasn’t going to last when she decided not to change her last name

  • Whoa

    Just another notch in her famewhore belt.

    obviously.. because their marriage was fake, all for t.v., publicity, and to make money.. give me break..

  • Deidre Lee

    I am not surprised as I always believed this whole thing was to make money and to mane her face all over the place. She is diarrhea splashed all over the world…he is probably not black enough for her. Disgusting…the media is at fault publishing everything these fools do….I hope the police department that had to work overtime for this sham wedding charge these low lives for every penny it cost the community. Good riddance…the poor guy deserves to be left alone.

    Obviously something in their marriage went wrong and they can’t seem to fix it. I believe they were very much in love and their marriage was not fake or for tv. If you don’t like Kim Kardashian, then you don’t like her. But that’s no reason to bash her as a person while she is going through a divorce. You wouldn’t want someone bashing you if you were going through a divorce, now would you.? I feel bad that her and Kris couldn’t seem to make it work. I really thought they could last!!

  • John
