Kim Kardashian Divorce


It’s the morning after the divorce filing heard around the world and America is still trying to pick up the pieces, you know, after realizing they have been bamboozled!

Just to bring you up to date, Kim Kardashian, 31, married NBA player Kris Humphries, 26, back in August after only 9 months of dating. Kimmie Kakes pocketed over $17 million from the wedding only to file for divorce a mere 72 days/10 weeks/2.5 months later!

Fast forward to today, and Kim, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, is on the receiving end of some major criticism while most media outlets are simply trying to figure out what went wrong.

According to TMZ, who first broke the divorce news yesterday to both the public and Kris, reported those close to Kim are claiming she truly agonized over her decision to file for divorce and went back and forth this weekend. That agony is clearly evident in Kimmie’s last tweet from Monday morning, you know, the same one she used to promote her newest Kardashian store!

Sources close to Kim tell TMZ she didn’t make her final decision to file for divorce until Sunday night and that she cried all weekend as she kept going back and forth on whether or not to file. Perhaps if one is having this much doubt after only 10 weeks of marriage they should have held off on filing!? Something tells me Kimmie was already picturing the publicity and magazine covers!

As for why Kim decided to file on Monday, it was because hubby Kris wanted to hire a Hollywood publicist over the weekend. Kim reportedly told one of her friends, “He’s not in f**king Hollywood. He plays sports.” Oh the irony of a famewhore divorcing her husband over being an alleged famewhore!

Yes, those close to Kim are now claiming she went through with the divorce because she now suspects Kris was simply in it for the fame. TMZ reports Kim’s friends are scoffing at Kris’ claims that he simply wanted a simple life with Kim in Minnesota. They’re saying he’s full of BS because once the marriage fell apart he immediately started “chasing fame.”

Camp Kim claims that once the couple started talking about the possibility of divorce last week, Kris went into full Hollywood mode, and started talking about “branding” the Kris Humphries name with cologne, nightclub appearances and what not. Not quite seeing the big deal with that but let’s continue!

Camp Kim also claims Kris was pushing to keep their connection going whether they ended their marriage or not which apparently threw up red flags with Kim. They, however, claim the breaking point for Kim was Kris’ decision to hire a Hollywood publicist over the weekend to work on his image. Why would this be such a bother to her??? Sounds like Camp Kim is grasping at straws here!

The HollywoodLife also has their take on things stating Kim decided to end her marriage after Kris decided to quit filming for Kim’s E! reality show Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

“Kim and Kris got into a huge fight last week because Kris told Kim he was sick of the cameras following him around and that he had had enough,” said a Kardashian family insider. “Kris said the reality show was ruining their marriage and it obviously took its toll on their relationship. But for Kim, it was the last straw. Kris had promised her that he would be on the show and that he was OK with all the cameras. Now that he is pulling out, Kim is throwing in the towel. She has had enough as well. They were only married for 72 days. Basically, the marriage should never have happened. There was too much of an emphasis on the wedding TV special rather than on their actual relationship. I think Kim was more in love with the whole idea of the wedding than she was in love with Kris.”

The insider also claims Kris isn’t the nice guy he’s portraying himself to be adding that he would always threaten Kim with a divorce. “Kris has been getting nastier and nastier and has been threatening Kim,” the source claims. “He has basically given her an ultimatum, ‘Move to Minnesota with me or I will dump you!’ This is really immature behavior. I honestly don’t know why they got married in the first place. They are so different.” The source goes on to state the obvious adding that “Kris was in over his head and Kim was so desperate to get married.”

Following the backlash from the public yesterday, as we predicted, Kim’s sisters Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian took to their twitter pages to defend their sister. Khloe tweeted, “Reading some these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything.” Kourtney also tweeted: “Our sister is going through a difficult time but we’re a close family and are sticking together like always.”

Kim and Kris both released statements yesterday and in Kris’ statement he makes it clear he still wants to work on his marriage to Kim, stating he is “committed to this marriage” and “willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”

When it comes to the criticism, Kimmie remains the butt of jokes both by the media and the public. The twitter topic #ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage has been the top trending topic on twitter for over 24 hours. And many in the media are now speculating on whether the marriage was ever even real, and well, just check out today’s cover of the NY Post below!

As for Kim, she has dipped out of the country and was photographed (below) at the LAX on Monday night boarding a flight to Australia with Khloe. The two are headed there to promote their new Kardashian handbag line.

A masseuse was also spotted outside of Kimmie’s LA mansion yesterday bringing a massage table into her home. That poor little rich Kimmie…

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Hours after Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, TMZ is reporting her soon to be ex-hubby Kris Humphries found out about it this morning… the same time everyone else did. In fact other media outlets are reporting a “blindsided” Kris also found out the same way everyone else did… by reading TMZ. Wowzers.

Sources close to Kris, 26, reveal he did NOT want a divorce and was desperately trying to save his marriage to Kim, 31. Kris, who’s religious, is reportedly telling friends he and Kim discussed the possibility of divorce, but he believed they could work things out.

Kris is insisting he never cheated and is described as being “bummed” over the divorce filing. Once again, he did not find out about the divorce until this morning through TMZ.

As for the reasons for their divorce, TMZ is reporting the two simply couldn’t agree on their future together, mainly where they would be residing as husband and wife. Apparently Kris really wanted Kim to move to Minnesota with him and believed Kim was on board with the plan…. except she wasn’t. (Err isn’t this something you discuss, you know, BEFORE spending millions on a lavish wedding???).

Sources reveal Kim, who’s from L.A., wanted to remain close to her family. She also felt that staying put in Los Angeles was best for her “career.”

As for the million dollar question — why didn’t they discuss this before tying the knot? — sources tell TMZ the Keeping Up With The Kardashian stars got carried away in all the wedding hoopla and simply thought they would figure things out after the wedding.

The same sources also claim the split is amicable, citing Kris and Kimmie simply realized they were “not a long-term fit” and not a moment too soon folks! After all, they only raked in a mere $17 million from the wedding extravaganza! Something however tells us things will get nasty if the reports of Kris not finding out about the divorce until this morning are true.

As for Kimmie, she released the following statement moments ago: “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. 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.”

Moments after Kim released her statement, Kris released his 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.”

Unfortunately for Kimmie, this actually marks her second divorce. See Kim eloped with Damon Thomas back in January 2000, much to her parents dismay. She was 19 at the time, and Damon was 29. Kim has alleged Damon physically abused her during their marriage. Damon filed for divorce in 2003.

And to all the legal experts out there, wouldn’t it make for sense for Kimmie to annul the marriage rather than file for divorce? But then again, an annulment doesn’t carry the same media sensation as a Divorce! And I ask once again, what happened to trying to work things out? You know, therapy, counseling, etc. So much for the so called ‘sanctity of marriage.’

I do believe this latest stunt will mark the beginning of the end for the Kardashians. The public doesn’t like to be made a fool out of, and quite frankly, pocketing $17 million from a wedding that only lasted 72 days is doing just that. Paris Hilton faded away following her over exposure from going to jail for a DUI. Heidi and Spencer faded away following their over exposure from a fake divorce and an even faker sex tape. Kimmie will suffer the same fate following the over exposure from not only her fake wedding but also her quickie divorce. I predict there will be A TON of public backlash, both from the media and the public. And once the media starts turning on you… that usually marks the end of your career. I don’t think she will recover from this.

Interestingly, Psychotherapist, Relationship Expert, and HLN contributor Stacy Kaiser revealed five reasons she wasn’t surprised Kim’s marriage failed based on what she saw on the E! wedding special. Stacy revealed the five reasons below via her Twitter page -

#1 Kim listened to her mother over her man. You need to make your husband a priority.

#2 Kris was already trying to punish her by growing a mustache and hanging with friends.

#3 Her sisters both didn’t support the relationship- close family discord hurts marriage.

#4 Kim and Kris both showed lack of respect to each other – Respect is part of foundation.

#5 Newlyweds need time to connect. Kim’s too busy working & promoting instead of wife-ing.

All very valid points. And a look at Kimmie’s twitter page shows the she made her last tweet this morning when she wrote: “Our store #KardashianKhaos is opening tomorrow at 9am at @TheMirageLV We are so excited!! Kardashian Khaos has arrived!” She wrote that knowing she was filing for divorce today and knowing pretty much everyone would be visiting her twitter page to see her response. Let that sink in for a minute…

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.

Keep checking back as we’ll continue to bring you updates as they become available.

TELL US – THOUGHTS? SHOCKED? DID YOU AT LEAST THINK THEY WOULD MAKE IT 3 MONTHS?


Just over 2 months after tying the knot in an extravagant made for TV wedding, in a shocker, Kim Kardashian is now admitting there is indeed trouble in paradise.

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…

TELL US – SHOCKED THAT THIS IS GOING SO BAD SO FAST? DO YOU THINK THEY’LL MAKE IT A YEAR? FEEL BAD FOR KIM?

Kim Kardashian and Damon Thomas

For someone who is highly popular and well known for her personal life, not much has been revealed about Kim Kardashian’s first marriage, that is until now.

Star magazine was able to uncover the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s divorce documents, which shockingly details abuse at the hands of her former husband and music producer, Damon Thomas.

Kim eloped with Damon back in January 2000, much to her parents dismay. Kim was 19 at the time, and Damon was 29. According to Kim’s statements in the divorce papers, the abuse began shortly after the couple got married. “Damon first hit me a few months after we were married,” she says in the statement, before going on to describe several instances of alleged abuse in detail.

“One incident occurred on the day that Damon and I were going skydiving with Justin Timberlake,” Kim says. “Before we left home, Damon hit me in the face and cut my lip open. I fell into the bed frame and banged my knee hard.” Another incident involved Damon learning Kim had paged someone,” which then led to another violent episode. “He became enraged and punched me in the face. My face was bruised and swollen as a result.”

In the documents, Kim also acknowledges never calling the cops. “I thought about calling the police but was afraid and decided not to do so.”

According to Kim, the abuse was not just physical, but also psychological. Kim claims she was forced to quit her job and stay at home because Damon “wanted to know where I was at all times.” “He often arrived home at 4:30AM and expected me to prepare a meal for him at that hour,” she says. He would also demand that she “ask permission” to go to the store or out to dinner with friends. Damon also gave her thousands of dollars and told her to get liposuction.

Damon filed for divorce in 2003 after three years of marriage. The divorce was made official in 2004 and he was ordered to pay Kim $56,000.

Damon has since come out denying the abuse claims.
