Reports circulated this morning of Kim Kardashian‘s plans to file for divorce from Kris Humphries, her husband of only 72 days. And now that the reality star has officially done so, she issued a statement confirming that her marriage is over, 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.” According to the court documents filed this morning, Kim cited “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of of the newlyweds’ split, but Kris isn’t so eager to use the D word and admits he’s not quite ready to throw in the towel. The NBA star made a statement of his own this afternoon, saying, “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce.” He also stated, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” Too bad Kim doesn’t seem so willing.
Regarding the division of their assets, the couple signed a prenuptial agreement, and Kim requested the conditions of it be upheld. Additionally, she listed “miscellaneous jewelry and other personal effects” as well as “earnings and accumulations” collected by Kim before, during and after her marriage to remain in her possession.
E! issued a statement of support to their number one client, stating, “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. E! will continue to share the fascinating real lives and larger-than-life existence of this close-knit family.” In other words, we’re nowhere close to seeing the last of the Kardashian Klan. So I guess that means none of us get to live happily ever after.
