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.

This woman is a pure embarrassment to her sex and a bloated publicity seeker who now needs to be ignored.

This is too hilarious beyond belief. Of course she can't stay married ... to anyone. Even walking baby steps, you'd still trip over her ego.

I wonder why not the annulment? So she can keep the gajillion dollars in wedding presents? And man, he probably can't even get that ring back. But I think she just bought it for herself anyway.

This is a great example of the "sanctity of marriage". In most places gays cannot marry but straights can treat it like a game.

Duh....big surprise here. Just think of the waste of money and effort and all the phoney hype and people bought this crap! Let the lame and lazy Kardashians go back to wherever they came from and stay there, they are the most unproductive, useless people in H'wood.
