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.

Remember when she said she's been planning her wedding since she was 10 and Humphries comes back at her with a comment about she could probably just plug any guy into her wedding fantasy plans? This was all a collusion between Kim and her mother Kris to spike ratings. All they needed was someone slack jawed enough to play the perfect dupe. Seriously, look at Humphries, does he look this side of simple minded or what? The entire family is driven by mother Kris' plan of action and really have no desire to be their own people as long as Money Hungry Mom keeps the cash registers cha chinging. Now that the Kimbo is 0 for 2 at marriage maybe she'll get the hint that nobody could ever love her the way she loves herself.

After that disgusting display of excess, what a waste. Next time get married for the sake of marriage, not to have a ridiculously expensive party. People are out of work and starving.

That wedding was sponsored and paid for by the media and anyone else who wanted recognition from being a participant. The Kardashians MADE MONEY on it. I feel sorry for the guests who didn't wait a year before giving them a wedding present. It's vey obvious the women in that family rule the roost, and they pick men who would rather live under their "direction" than be a real man. Kris liked hot dogs, Kim liked diamonds. Kim goes overseas to do some sort of publicity thing and didn't bring him along - proving that actions speak louder than words, once again. This really is a shame for all the young women trying to be like the Kardashian women. DON'T!!!
