So much for the fairy tale romance and wedding between Kim Kardashian and professional basketballer Kris Humphries. It is ending in divorce after only 72 days! It’s even worse when you consider that for many of those 72 days the couple were apart, working in different parts of the country.
Ryan Seacrest has confirmed that the couple is going to get a divorce as soon as possible after the whirlwind romance and marriage ceremony.
Seacrest, who also works as executive producer on Keeping up with the Kardashians, confirmed the divorce via Twitter: “Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins.” The divorce papers filed yesterday, cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce.
The marriage itself was one of the biggest Hollywood has ever seen, cost millions of dollars and was filmed for a television special.
The entertainment show E!, who bought the rights to the marriage ceremony for an estimated $2 million dollars, released a statement: “All of us at E! are surprised and saddened by this news, and we send our support to Kim and Kris at this difficult time. The Kardashians have always been uniquely open with all aspects of their lives from joyous events to intimate moments to heartbreaking transitions”
So was that $2 million dollars down the drain for E!? Apparently not as their viewership went up, and the advertising space during the television special was quite lucrative.
Kim Kardashian said of the divorce: “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.”
From what can gather it was indeed Kim’s decision to get divorced, and a seemingly devastated Kris Humphries said: “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce. I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work”
Well it looks like it’s too little too late, as Kim Kardashian already wants out of the marriage and will soon be looking for a new man no doubt!
