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.

To spend ten million dollars on a wedding is obscene. Just think how much good that money could have been used for -- how many people it could have helped. Even if you have that kind of wealth and can afford to blow it like this, you owe it to humanity to use it for some good and not for publicity. What a total waste of money and lives these people are guilty of. Two words: Insanity and Obscenity.

the entire event was about gifts and the sponsors engineered by her mother for publicity. This poor guy was just the guinea pig they found to play the part.

Ugh! Go away Kardashians. Can you spell p-s-y-c-h-o for p-u-b-l-i-c-i-t-y? What a waste of money. When I think about people struggling to keep their homes, feed their kids, pay their bills because of lost jobs, it just sickens me that this spoiled brat can blow $10 million. My bet is it was a publicity stunt from the beginning. That prenup was actually a contract paying him to go through with the wedding and then the divorce, you think?

Kim was married 72 days. I beat her record of 30 days. Most miserable 30 of my life. Got a divorce because for some reason "things change after you are married". They think they own you.

People.....PLEASE, did anyone really take this wedding serious for this Pie Hole Kim?? This was nothing other then a business deal to exploit this pigs popularity. It is still beyond me, why her and her no talent family are still around. Her only claim to fame was the porn she shot with Ray-J, JJ, or what ever his name was. She took a page right out of Pari******on s play book, her mentor, to break into the lime light. Please lets bury this family, enough is enough.

This means the E channel reruns of the ceremony will last longer than the marriage. And yet people still care.
