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.

Unbelievable. Yet ANOTHER "fantasy dream" couple doing the two month marriage bit. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Are these people in Hollywood capable of anything except wasting disgusting amounts of money on huge ceremonies and parties and then throwing it away? That money could have gone to the homeless or needy. It's disgusting how celebrities throw money away. And it's more disgusting how many Americans actually CARE and FOLLOW the stories of these people like they matter!!!! Reality shows and celebrities, keeping the masses dumb and distracted and ignorant. God bless the USA.

What a surprise...not, All Kim was interested in was the lavish wedding and getting it on film so she can make money from it. She sounds like a VERY materialistic person, very shallow.

One of the comments below was "When will Kim grow up?" But I ask, when will the people who read gossip columns grow up? Kim Kardashian has never done anything to justify the incredible amount of attention she receives. To my knowledge, she has never written a novel, been in a Broadway play, starred in a (real) television series, or a movie. She is famous only because the press decided to make her famous. In my view, folks should simply stop watching and reading about her, and she'll disappear back into the anonymity she so richly deserves.

The air-head celebrities shouldn't have gotten married anyway! They go through partners like cell phones. Why? Cause they're selfish, unstable and irresponsible. Pity the fool who marries either one in the future...

This is why I laugh at what most people get into these days. She is not a "star" and never will be. Most of these TV actors are nothing but glorified rich trash. They made a complete joke of what it means to get married in the first place. This is just one of many weddings for her I am sure. Spent more time playing bride then living in the real world.

Will the E! network be filming all the divorce details? Why not, these folks made millions on the "fairytale" wedding so I wouldn't put anything past Kris Kardashian-Jenner to try to make money on the divorce proceedings. Hmm, surprised that Gloria Allred isn't involved in some way with the divorce .......
