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.

H-m-m-m, let's see - the BIG multi-episode wedding special is over. all the money from the PEOPLE spread is in the bank and just how much publicity can one get as a happy wife? He served his purpose. She is now free again to infect other gullible men. I don'*****ch any of their self-publicizing trash shows - can others join me so we are not plagued by this obnoxious clan for all eternity?

Even a blind person would have seen this ridicule wedding coming to an end.
In this economy leave it to the Kardashians to show the rest of the world the value of 10 Millions of Dollars is equal to ZERO.What a waste.
