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.

Oh, I am SOOOOO surprised!! LOL So sad that so many of these "celebrities" simply have no clue whatsoever about what a marriage commitment really means. For them, it's all about the "bling."

The only people who should care are the guests at the wedding who probably spent a ton of money on a gift off her bridal registry which I'm sure there was nothing under $100.00!!!! They should all demand a refund from that self obsorbed, think she's hot **** with those fake boobs and fat ass, media attention spoiled brat!!!

99% of us agree she is ugly white trash, superficial, untalanted, useless, celebrity whore monger and a joke. I don't know who is really interested in her for doing NOTHING and why she makes her money. If her life is reality than she is out of touch with the rest of the world. All that money spent on a publicity stunt-sickening and shameful. I wish that whole family would fall off a cliff.

When I watched the wedding special, all I kept thinking is that these are two people so incompatible with one another, it can't possibly work. I married someone I was not compatible with and I was miserable for ten years. I used to say that in the dictionary under went ahead and did it anyway was my picture. Well now that can be replaced with hers.
