After just 72 days of marriage, reality star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from husband Kris Humphries Monday. In a statement to FOX411, Kardashian said, “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.”
According to a report from TMZ, the couple was at odds over where to finally settle down. Humphries was reportedly passionate about settling down in his native Minnesota, and Kardashian simply wasn’t going for it. But TMZ reports that Humphries was adamantly opposed to the divorce and tried desperately to save his marriage to Kardashian. According to the report, Humphries was unaware that she was filing papers until this morning.
Though their marital bliss was short-lived, the reality star is not seeking an annulment and will list “irreconcilable differences” as the cause, TMZ reported. The couple signed a pre-nuptial agreement and Kardashian is reportedly looking to block Humphries from getting any spousal support.
Kardashian, 31, married the NBA player, 26, at a star-studded Hollywood ceremony August 20. The wedding was estimated to cost upwards of $10 million. Kardashian’s 20-carat engagement ring from Humphries cost $2 million. Kardashian has reportedly hired celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser, who has previously repped Britney Spears, Maria Shriver and Angelina Jolie. The couple has been plagued by split rumors for weeks.
