Looks like Kim Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries is now official. “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kim said in a statement to E! News. “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.” Meanwhile, new hubby Kris sounds a lot less thrilled about the announcement, saying in a statement, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” They still had that new marriage smell, too!
While Kim and Kris might be ready to sign those divorce papers only 72 days after their nuptials, they are nowhere near the first celebrity couple to bail out of their wedded bliss just weeks or months after walking down the aisle. From Mario Lopez to Britney Spears, Liz Taylor to Lisa Marie Presley, let’s look back at our favorite shortest Hollywood marriages:
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. Read more…
Man, we love celebrity friendships. In the oddest BFF pairing we’ve heard of, it seems Kris Humphries and Vinny Guadagnino are now homies. Us Weekly reports that Mr. Kardashian and the Jersey Shore guido had a proper “boys night out” at STK in L.A recently, where Kris “seemed to be in good spirits.” The bromance was sealed when they two flew from New York to Las Vegas earlier this month, where a source says, “Kim slept the entire time while [Vinny and Kris] chatted the whole way.”
We see plot lines evolving on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Perhaps a story where Kim’s miffed that her husband is spending too much time with his bro? Tears! Drama! A walk on the Jersey Shore in moonlight to make up. Ah, the joys of “reality” television.
We never thought we’d say this, but we’re actually starting to feel bad for Kris Humphries. Getting married to Kim Kardashian certainly must have its upsides, but lately it seems like this dude keeps getting thrown under the bus. He went from being a pro-baller to being mocked by his team, controlled by the meddling mother-in-law to end all meddling mother-in-laws, and having his emotions/stupidity exploited on national television. Kris is a lamb among the Kardashian Klan’s wolves. Even TMZ couldn’t deny his bewildered look as he was being dragged from one PR stunt to another. The guy never had a chance. And now to top it all off, Kris had to share a flight seated next to his wife’s sex tape partner, Ray J. Fasten your seat-belts folks, because we’re gonna experience some turbulence.
The pair came face to face for the first time this Sunday on a Delta flight from LA to New Orleans. Humphries boarded in Minnesota, and sat down directly across the aisle from none other than Ray J. When he realized the identity of his plane-mate, Kris reportedly moved to a seat in front of the rapper and stared “stone faced” ahead for a period of what onlookers called “awkward silence.” Ray J tried to break the ice by going over and congratulating him on his marriage, but Kris was having none of it according to the New York Post. Apparently he acted like he had no idea who Ray J was, but Ray called BS. “Come on, you know who I am,” he reportedly said. “I just want to say congratulations.” Busted, Kris admitted ‘Oh yeah, yeah, I’m sorry I know who you are.” And thus began what must have felt like the longest flight in history.
Whoever handles the seating arrangements for Delta clearly has a dark sense of humor. Unless it was Kim herself, determined to capture the encounter on hidden cameras for an episode of her show. We hate to say it but…we’d totally watch that one. Hang in there Kate Middleton Kris!
On the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashains Kris Humphries was shocked -shocked!- to learn that his fiancee Kim Kardashian had already been been married once before. Which is weird because he could have learned this by doing a ten-second scan of his wife-to-be’s Wikipedia page. Yes, despite all the hype around Kim’s “big day”, people seem to forget that this ain’t her first trip down the aisle. In 2000 she tied the knot with record producer Damon Thomas, which ended in divorce four years later. But apparently no one told Kris about this until after the couple were already engaged. One of Kim’s relatives evidently let it slip during a Kardashian family vacation in Bora Bora.
“You were really married? You guys are serious?” gasped a visibly shaken Humphries as they sat around the fancy dinner table. The fellow Kardashian men tried to cheer him up, with some attempts more successful than others. “Kim wasn’t really married,” Rob Kardashian offered confusingly, while Scott Disick lived up to his mega-douche title by saying, “You really thought that you were going to the first?” Charming. Kris was pretty bummed out, moaning “I didn’t see that coming, that hit me like a ton of bricks. What else will Kim break to me?” But as we all know now, he got over it and the two lived happily ever after in the land of Donk.
What we wanna know is, how did this not come up before? Come on guys, communication is key to any relationship. Maybe the K-Kult were keeping the factoid hidden until they could spring it on him while the cameras were rolling. Ratings are ratings, y’all. But seriously, we thought that knowledge of Kim’s previous marriage was just kinda…out there. So we’re not sure who to be mad at in this sitch. Let this be a lesson to couples everywhere: always remember to Google your significant other before you pop the question.
It’s safe to say that we are officially O-V-E-R Kim Kardashian‘s wedding. We’re happy she found love and chose to express it under a Swarovski crystal cross, but we’re ready to stop talking about it now. Sadly, Kim is not. “It was like we were in heaven,” she tells People magazine in the pages of their “Kim’s Wedding Album” issue. Adds her new husband, Kris Humphries, “”I’m going to remember how perfect it was.”
Heaven! Perfect! We get it! But in case you don’t, E! is going to be airing four hours of Kardashian wedding mania on October 9 and 10, with Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event. Shark, you have been jumped. Interestingly enough, Us Weekly is reporting that Kris’ family “looked appalled by the entire thing,” which makes us absolutely adore them.
Celebrity guests included — deep breath — Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough, Eva Longoria, Lindsay Lohan and mom Dina, Avril Lavigne, Melanie Brown (from the Spice Girls), Mark Ballas, George Lopez, Ciara, Cheryl Burke, Mario Lopez, Serena and Venus Williams, La La Vasquez and Carmelo Anthony, Kathy Lee Gifford, Brittny Gastineau, Sugar Ray Leonard, Kelly Osbourne and Demi Lovato. Phew! Robin Thicke serenaded the newly hitched couples first dance with the song Angels. Read more…
Life ain’t always easy for a bride-to-be. Just ask Kim Kardashian, who now has the awkward task of uninviting 50 guests from her wedding to Kris Humphries. But it’s nothing personal, you guys! It just looks like there isn’t enough room for all of her friends and the film crew for her four-hour reality show special. So rather than cut down on camera angles, some of Kim’s peeps are getting the boot. Can we get a sad trombone?
The happy Kouple are reportedly getting married at the Sotto Il Monte mansion in Montecito, Califorina. But according to sources, the local fire marshal wasn’t happy when he learned that a massive production crew and camera equipment would also be roaming the 10.9 acre estate. After much back and forth, the marshal demanded that Kim trim her list. With just two days to go before the big day, that’s probably gonna piss some people off. But hey, at least they can watch the blessed union in TV, right?
Despite the guest list trauma, Kim and her Klan looked radiant last night at the launch of their Kardashian Kollection clothes line in Los Angeles. Check out more in the gallery below!
Kim Kardashian‘s wedding to Kris Humphriesis going to be a spectacle of, well, Kardashianical proportions. A source tells the NY Daily News, “Ã‚Â Kim really does want it to beÃ‚Â America’s version of the royal wedding is going to be isn’t the only one primping for a picture-perfect wedding. It’s the most lavish event possible – no matter what it costs.” Of course it’s going to be, because it has to be a money-making machine.
Kim’s mom Kris Jenner, as always, has dollar signs in her eyes with the whole wedding-palooza. The source explains that she, “is worried that all the money that’s going to be made from the wedding [via the sale of photo rights and sponsorships] will have to go right back into it.” But she’s also worried about how she’s going to look at the wedding because everything is going to be broadcast to the far outreaches of the globe. Apparently, Kris just got a facelift. And all the Kardashians are talking about it because publicity is the reason for their existence.
Khloe Kardashian spoke about her mom’s procedure saying, “She looks amazing. They say you are supposed to have a lot of swelling for a week or so after, but I didn’t notice.”Ã‚Â Jenner’s facelift will be a part of an upcoming episode ofÃ‚Â Keeping Up With the Kardashians, with the momager revealing,Ã‚Â “I’ve never had such a stressful morning, honestly, in my life.” Also, FYI, Humphries has also been talked into getting dental veneers before the wedding. Like we said, everything needs to be perfect, because perfect means a bigger paycheck!
