The stress of the pending divorce is taking its toll on Kim Kardashian because various Australian news outlets are reporting she decided to cut her Australian trip short and fly home to the U.S. either today or tomorrow. Kim jetted off to Down Under right after announcing the news of her split from Kris Humphries, but it appears she wasn't as up for the trip as she originally thought because she canceled her promotional engagements she scheduled in Melbourne for over the weekend.
One of Kim's broken promises included an appearance at the Melbourne Cup Carnival for Swisse vitamins marquee on Saturday. Reports claim the gig offered to pay her $150,000 to attend, but she chose to bail on the opportunity, saying, "I am very disappointed that I am unable to attend the Swisse marquee but I hope to come back and work with the Swisse team at another point in time." At the last minute, reps attempted to convince Khloe to attend the event on sister's behalf, but she refused. A Swisse vitamins spokesman commented on the turn of events, saying, "All indications were that Kim wanted to fulfill all of her commitments once she landed in Australia but has obviously changed her mind given her very difficult personal challenges at the moment."
Remember how Khloe sang her sister's praises yesterday for traveling to Australia trip despite her personal troubles? I guess she spoke a little too soon. At first I thought Kim was just pretending to be sad in order to gain the public's sympathy, but now she bailed on a press event and an opportunity to make money? Fame and money are two things this family thrives on, so something's definitely got her down in the dumps. Perhaps unfollowing Kris Humphries on Twitter was harder on her than she originally thought.
