To the shock of, well, maybe those people who think reality TV is ABSOLUTELY REAL, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, TMZ reports. She cites the age-old “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split in papers submitted today by celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, according to the site.
Update: Since the news was first reported, TMZ has posted court papers, and Ryan Seacrest, the exec producer of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, confirmed the news on his radio show. “She is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries this morning. I’ve spoken to her briefly, and she is sad and got caught up in all that was going on [in the wedding]. We’re going to have a statement from Kim in just a little while. There were rumors up until the wedding, and after the wedding a lot of rumors about it. It is true.”
“It’s always tough when you’re apart. But we do what we can to try and spend time together and make that time for each other,” Kim reportedly told Us Weekly, explaining why Kris wasn’t with her at Saturday’s Midori Green Halloween bash at LAVO in Las Vegas. In her super-hot Poison Ivy outfit, she didn’t exactly look like she was sad to be without her new husband, either.
Rumors that the couple hadn’t been getting along hounded Kim and Kris since their televised wedding a whopping 72 days ago. And after learning that they earned close to $18 million for tying the knot (from their E! special and for selling their engagement story and wedding pics to People), it’s kind of hard to feel bad for them. Reality show or no, it’s pretty hard to tell what’s going on in a couple from the outside, but still we pose this important question to you:
