UPDATE - It’s official. Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce, confirms TMZ.
According to TMZ, Kim will be filing for divorce, instead of an annulment, even though the marriage was extremely short. Kim will reportedly cite “irreconcilable differences.”
The date of separation on the divorce filing will be listed as today October 31, 2011.
Even more shocking, Kim has already hired divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who has represented celebs with talent such as Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, and Ryan Reynolds.
As reported back in August, Kim’s momager Kris Jenner made certain the couple got a prenup. Meanwhile, it appears the joke’s on us, the public, as reports have stated Kim raked in over $17 million from the very lavish wedding.
Immediately following the August 20 nuptials, the tabloids started reporting there was trouble in paradise. It all seemed like just rumors until recent weeks when more reputable media outlets such as UsWeekly and PEOPLE magazine also reported Kim, 31, and Kris, 26, were indeed having marital problems. And just days ago, a bombshell report came out stating Kimmie and E! were shopping around for other NBA players she could date before she met Kris, while Kris has been caught flirting with other women.
Kim hosted a Halloween party this weekend solo, though she played down reports of marital issues telling PEOPLE: “Something I really prepared Kris for [was] to let him know that no matter what we do, there’s going to be rumors… It used to really upset me and now I don’t even think about it.”
For the time being, it appears Kim is getting ready to go out of the country, visiting Australia for a promotional appearance. Good thing as the public backlash ain’t gonna be pretty. But really, what happened to trying to work things out? 72 days????? Wow.
