Divorce documents began to circulate online Monday afternoon.
Kim Kardashian filed for divorce Monday morning, after 72 days of not-so-wedded bliss to Kris Humphries ... TMZ has learned, and now we have the documents. We're told even though the marriage was short, she is not seeking an annulment. It's a garden variety divorce, in which Kim cites "irreconcilable differences." The date of separation is listed as today, Oct. 31, 2011. According to the docs, Kim wants Kris to foot his own lawyers' fees and she'll pay hers. And, she wants the court to reject any move by Kris to get spousal support. (TMZ)
Confirming the divorce, the 31 year-old E! reality star released a statement on her now-public situation.
"After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision," she told MTV News in a statement. "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." (Statement)
Reports of their engagement made headlines in late May.
It was a dream come true for Kim Kardashian when she walked into her Beverly Hills home May 18. Her boyfriend of six months, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries, was waiting in her bedroom on bended knee with four words written in red rose petals: "WILL YOU MARRY ME?" "I didn't expect this at all," Kardashian, 30, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview (out Friday) of the romantic, surprise proposal. "I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now." (PEOPLE)
Kardashian previously shared a brief marriage with music producerDamon Thomas in the early 2000's.
This will be Kardashian's second marriage, actually. She and music producer Damon Thomas tied the knot in 2000 when she was 19, but it ended four years later. She went on to date singer Ray J (her sex tape co-star), football stars Reggie Bush and Miles Austin and model Gabriel Aubry. This is Humphries's first marriage. (Pop Eater)
