Kim Kardashian

Files for Divorce

10/31/2011 1:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1031_divorce_4
Kim Kardashian filed for divorce Monday morning, after 72 days of not-so-wedded bliss to  Kris Humphries  ... TMZ has learned, and now we have the documents.

We're told even though the marriage was short, she is not seeking an annulment. It's a garden variety divorce, in which Kim cites "irreconcilable differences."

The date of separation is listed as today, Oct. 31, 2011.  According to the docs, Kim wants Kris to foot his own lawyers' fees and she'll pay hers.  And, she wants the court to reject any move by Kris to get spousal support.

And, the docs list the length of the marriage as a measly 2 months.

Kim has hired disso-queen Laura Wasser, who has repped the likes of Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds, and Robyn Gibson, Mel's almost ex-wife.

As we first reported, the couple has a prenuptial agreement ... Kim made sure of that.

Rumors of a split had been swirling for some time and the two were spotted out to dinner earlier this week ... looking less than pleased with one another.



The couple was married on August 20 in a lavish ceremony (see below) in Montecito, CA. There are reports that the wedding cost as much as $10 mil, which means $138,888 for every day until today.

As for why things fell apart after the wedding, click here to find out.

Kardashian Divorce

Why They Broke Up ...


1031_kim_kirs_EX_01
Kim Kardashian
will never, ever move to Minnesota ... everyone knows that ... except Kris Humphries.

Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... one of the main points of contention in the marriage was where the couple would live after all of the wedding madness finally died down. 

We're told Kris was passionate about eventually settling down in Minnesota, where he's from ... and believed Kim was on board with the plan. She wasn't.

Sources tell us Kim -- who's from L.A. -- wants to stay near her family ... and she also feels that staying in town is the best thing for her career.  

So why didn't this conversation come up before the $10 million wedding? We're told the two talked about their future ... but got caught up in the hooplah and figured they would simply figure it out after they tied the knot.

Sources say it's not a nasty break-up ... but we're told the two have come to a realization that it's not a long-term fit.

Be glad she did not have your kid...it would have been as screwed up as she is...hopefully you will find a good girl instead of a porno low rent like this kar trash ian fool. I am sure mother is pleased...she knows what is the best for you and knew that family was a bunch of morons. Reggie knew it, too.

And who is surprised by this? While I've always hesitated to be critical of Kim, as I wanted to be fair, I do believe that she's the one who faked being in love with him for publicity. Otherwise, she would've made the effort. When she didn't tell him about her previous marriage and refused to change or hyphenate her name, it showed how little regard she had for him. In relationships, you have to be willing to be honest and to meet in the middle. I'm surprised he didn't see that it was a ploy, but he was probably distracted by her physicality. As beautiful as Kim is, I think she is a bit conceited, and he deserves better.

What a silly spoiled useless female that one is... to spend so much on her show off party, then when the party is over, and mudane settles in, off he goes! The only good thing about these so called "reality stars" is they show the rest of the world how NOT to be!

Kim is way too good for him! She needs to be more picky in her selection of men. She's a beautiful girl she does not have to settle for him!!! Her sister, Kloe was so right about him!!! Wish you the "BEST" Kim!!
