Kim Kardashian Files for Divorce From Kris Humphries
After spending Halloween weekend apart, TMZ reported that Kim would be filing for divorce on Monday — 72 days after the couple tied the knot this August in an over-the-top lavish wedding. Fans of the Kardashians just got to see the nuptials take place on E!’s four-hour wedding special that aired in early October — pulling in monster ratings for the network. E! News later confirmed the report, and now TMZ has the documents to prove it.
In an official statement to E! News, Kim confirmed the divorce, saying:
“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.”
Meanwhile, Humphries is reeling from Kim’s decision to file for divorce, telling People in a statement:
“I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce… I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents, and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
Ryan Seacrest also says he confirmed the news, saying via Twitter: “Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins.”
Seacrest continued on his radio show:
“I’ve spoken to her briefly, and she is sad and got caught up in all that was going on [in the wedding]. We’re going to have a statement from Kim in just a little while. There were rumors up until the wedding, and after the wedding a lot of rumors about it. It is true.”
TMZ cited that Kim and Kris had major tensions over where they would settle down and live — as Kris reportedly wanted Kim to move to his home state of Minnesota, while she wanted to stay in Los Angeles with her family.
Reports of trouble within Kim’s marriage circulated almost from the get-go, though the couple had been mum about their relationship status over recent weeks. On Oct. 21 for Kim’s birthday, the two were seen looking as loving as ever during Kim’s big birthday dinner party in New York City.
