Kim Kardashian, Kris Humphries File For Divorce 72 Days After Wedding

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — That was quick.

Despite recent attempts to dispel rumors that their marriage was in trouble, New Jersey Nets power forward and sex-tape-turned-reality-television star Kim Kardashian have filed for divorce.

The couple married on August 20, in what other members of the Kardashian crew called “Royal Wedding #2.”

The event was taped and packaged for a television special which aired on E! After returning from their honeymoon, the couple called the Park Avenue Gansevoort home.

“I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision,” Kardashian said in a statement. “I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don’t work out as planned.”

After 72 days as a married couple, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

Kardashian said the two “Remain friends and wish each other the best.”

She has hired Laura Wasser, who has previously represented stars like Britney Spears, Maria Shriver and Angelina Jolie.

Last week, the New York Post reported that prior to her relationship with Humphries, Kardashian’s people placed a phone call to the New York Knicks to see if then-team member Danilo Gallinari would be interested in dating Kim and having a role on her reality show.

    Anybody up for a Constitutional amendment the prohibits always doomed to failure celebrity marriages ?

  2. Please anyone can see what’s coming next. I’d lay odds that in a month or two headlines will be asking if Kim Kardashian is a mommy to be. Then she’ll confess she forgot to take her pill and got pregnant during that brief marriage. New show…”Ki­m plus 1″. Baby gets the Kardashian last name and the horror show continues for another generation­. And if your still wondering what really happened let me educate you. Kim and her hubby took a cable station for a boat load of money, scammed their “wedding guests” out of gifts, then filed for divorce hoping and knowing that they’ll be offered a divorce reality show. These reality shows are getting ridiculous and when I hear that kids consider the Kardashians icons I want to throw my television out the window.

    Who cares about these idiots, hollywood. Living in a fairy tale story book.
    Reality check needs to be addressed. All that money should have been donated to cancer society.

      Oh go stuff it already!

  7. steffi says:

    Instead of spending all that money for a wedding that lasted what 72 days, they should have donated that money to shelters for the homeless and animals shelters. They should learn how to live in the real world with a real job. White trash.

      steffi,

      They provided joy and hope to all their fans across the globe during their brief rein. Let us pray that they can reconcile and continue their good work.

      1. val says:

        Oh, puhleese! It’s people like you who watch this trash that make them do these stupid things. They have made a mockery out of marriage in the name of ratings.

      2. ALW says:

        Really??? I feel sorry for someone who thinks these do nothings are providing hope and joy. Get a life. This was such a publicity stunt and scam and they are laughing all the way to the bank. The Kardashians are almost as low as those on the Jersey Shore…I will not waste an ounce of electricity on any of them.

    Every one in the world except for Kim’s family knew that this marriage would not last and If I bet on this as a Hedge Fund Manager, I would have made $10 million dollars myself!

    He probably made fun of her big arse and she got mad.

  10. bullett says:

    I’m surprised it lasted this long. I guess the NBA strike was the final blow. No money, no honey.

  11. The Realist says:

    She didn’t “marry” him as much as CAST him for a role in her famous-for-being-famous life. He didn’t generate the desired ratings, so now she’s writing him off the show.

  12. JOSHSUCKS says:

    Sloppy Seconds anyone? Yech!

  13. single & happy says:

    2 words describe the 2 of them – selfish & stupid. really “real” people. $10 million on a wedding? what a cry for attention. he was just trying to pad his bank account knowing the nba was going to be in a lockdown. no kids, it may be halloween, but you 2 provided neither a treat nor trick, except perhaps for the foolish people who drooled over watching the “festivities” on tv. guess there will be an empty chair in the audience for dancing with the stars tonight. dance and be happy rob, for you are your own man, tonight is about your own talent and not having to speak on behalf of your sister. get a grip people.

  17. LDi says:

    who cares about these useless people who have done nothing to warrant their publiciity. the only sin is the outrageous, despicable amount of money, treated as if it is just change, that could have been better spent contributed to a charity, to our own people struggling to put food on their table, or the poor souls starving to death in the Sudan. Thiis is the difference between tacky new money and old money who understands the nature of giving, not spending uselessly.

    1. hmmm...ok~ says:

      Exactly!

  18. Kay says:

  20. Johnny Handsome says:

    Once we make divorce a lot harder to get, these idiots will continue to treat marriage like its a night out on the town. Come on, Reggie Bush just dumped her silly behind and 2 months later she’s getting married? Trash.

  21. KPMc says:

    Where, oh where are the religious fundamentalists and bigots decrying the desecration of “traditional” marriage.

    I guess it is ok to make a mockery of the ‘institution’ as long as the couple is of the opposite sex.

  22. LJackson says:

    No Surprise. Not one bit.

  23. nikchopper says:

    These leeches made millions off the sale of their wedding video and related items. The whole family is a bunch of moronic, emotionally stunted sociopaths who need to be forgotten and shunned immediately and completely.

    1. TIM says:
