Weeks after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wed NBA player Kris Humphries, the tabloids started reporting the couple was having marital issues. At first it all seemed like rumors, but fast forward to today and more reputable media outlets such as UsWeekly and PEOPLE are confirming the two are indeed having a hard time in newlywedville.
Perhaps in an effort to quiet down the rumors, Kim admitted the following to PEOPLE magazine about her marriage: “It’s not ideal because you’re newlyweds and you want privacy.” Privacy? Really Kimmie? Two words that should never be uttered in the same sentence? Kim Kardashian and privacy! After all this is the same person who invited the paparazzi on her honeymoon and sold the photos for a reported $200,000!
A source tells PEOPLE of the couple: “They’ve been a bit distant lately. But they’re figuring it all out.” Distant after 2 months? Yikes!
Kim’s pimp err mom Kris Jenner also chimed in stating now that filming has ended on the upcoming Kourtney & Kim Take New York season 2, it’s back to L.A. for the newlyweds. “They’re going two separate directions [with work],” says pimpmomager Kris. “They’ll figure it out as soon as they get back.”
Kimmie also graces the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine which sheds some more light on exactly what problems the two are having. The cover reads, “As Kim worries she made the mistake of her life, can she save her marriage?”
The mag reports that two months after the couple’s televised $10 million nuptials, Kim and Kris have already reached a breaking point in their marriage. “Kim and Kris are not getting along at all,” says a source. “Kris is not drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid, and it’s causing major problems.”
Kris’ biggest fault? His perceived laziness which is a cardinal sin in the relentlessly ambitious
famewhoring Kardashianland. With the NBA lockout leaving him jobless for the time being, Kris, 26, has reportedly been partying while Kim juggles multiple projects and foots the bill for his new A-list lifestyle.
A family friend reveals that just days before Kim celebrated her 31st birthday in Las Vegas, the two “had it out.” A family friend reveals: “She told him he needs to do something productive. The
greed work ethic in that family really means something. He needs to get off his ass, like, yesterday.”
Even worse, Kim is now beginning to question whether she should have married
a pro athlete who’s 5 years younger someone she had only known nine months. “On some levels,” says the friend, “she feels like she made a mistake.” Wowzers.
UsWeekly adds that the couple got into a big blowout on October 16 as Kim exploded when she returned to the Gansevoort Park hotel, their temporary home in New York City, from a promotional trip to the United Arab Emirates (she reportedly received $1 mil for that trip). After four days apart, Kim was hoping to find an eager husband waiting to spend quality time with her, but instead Kris was nowhere to be found.
“He was with friends at a bar watching football,” says the family friend. “She was not psyched.” Adding to the couple’s issues is the fact that Kris has not been hitting the gym or working on his basketball skills during the NBA lockout. “Kris was supposed to be training when Kim was away.” And Kim was “extremely upset” to find out he hadn’t been doing that. “She told him this sh*t needs to stop,” says the friend. “He literally has nothing to do right now. He and his friends have milked the whole Kardashian thing: It was bottle service and table and free everything everywhere he went.”
With all their marital issues laid out (there’s even more mentioned in the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine out on newstands now), the mag states having a baby is indefinitely on hold for the couple. In fact, Kim has done a 180 on having a baby. If you recall, she stated back in June that she wanted to be pregnant “by the end of the year.” Fast forward to today and she is singing a much different tune.
“We’re going to wait,” she recently said. “We want to spend some time together and enjoy each other. Give me, like, a year. Then we’ll talk babies!”
Insiders however aren’t so sure the couple will make it a year. “I’m not saying they’re getting divorced tomorrow,” says a family friend. “But it’s much harder than she anticipated.”
Sources tell the mag that moving to L.A. is going to prove to be a “real test” for the couple.
Must say I’m absolutely not shocked these two are already having major issues just 2 months into their marriage. The #1 mistake Kimmie made was to start filming the Kourtney & Kim Take NY reality show immediately after their wedding. These two literally got married in front of cameras, went on their honeymoon — with paparazzi in tow, and then went to NYC to start filming a reality show. Where’s the alone time? To, you know, get to know each other as husband and wife? As much of a famewhore Kimmie is, even I was shocked she sold her honeymoon pictures. On top of having E! cameras and paparazzi always in their faces, they are spending tons of time apart due to Kim’s constant traveling for work and promotional appearances.
I however believe the biggest mistake was filming a reality show right away. Khloe Kardashian was smart about her marriage and waited over a year after marrying Lamar before filming their own spin-off. Why didn’t Kim do the same? Especially with someone like Kris who is so far removed from the Hollywood lifestyle. Plus Kris is only 26 years old while Kimmie is 31. A 26-year-old professional athlete who now has fame and access to more women than ever? If you guessed a recipe for disaster, you guessed right! So we have to ask again…
