Kim Kardashian, who married basketball star Kris Humphries filed for divorce on Monday, barely 72 days after marriage. The 31-year old TV reality star has apparently cited 'irreconcilable differences" for the separation. Kim Kardashian and 26 year-old NBA star Kris Humphries had married in a lavish ceremony in Southern California on August 20.
Stating that the decision was not easy, Kim said in a statement to the media, “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, Kris was completely taken aback and said that he only learnt this morning that his wife Kim Kardashian wanted a divorce. In a statement he sent through his representative, Kris said, “I"m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I"m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."
The high profile wedding between Kim Kardashian and Kardashian and Kris Humphries, is reported to have costed $10 million. More than three million U.S. viewers watched a two-part TV special earlier this month called “Kim"s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian event."
