Kim Kardashian

Files for Divorce

10/31/2011 1:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Kardashian Divorce

Why They Broke Up ...

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.

People don't be upset by the waste of money here. Most of this wedding was free for Kim K. The companies gave her most of the wedding for free to gain publicity. You really don't think Momma would let her spend so much of the family fortune on a bogus wedding do ya.

Can you say publicity stunt? How much did she make on airing the "wedding", gifts, selling pictures, etc. No surprise. How did she get famous in the first place? By "someone" leaking a porn of her and Ray J. I'll bet that someone was her dear old mom, Kris Jenner. A family of fame/money whores.

The only redeeming quality of this ridiculous non-event was to suck money out of the Kardashian's pocket book & put it into some somebody else's....

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA! No surprise, but I laugh at them for making a mockery of marriage, and all those who attended their extravagant wedding, while millions are starving. As well as those who attended their wedding. Disrespectful. They were only together for a few months before tying the knot, and it only took less than 3 months for them to figure out what they should have waited to figure you. And congrats to all those who were in a pool on when these two would call it quits. I'm now a little richer. Thanks kids (Kim and Kris). lol

Kim is a good looking woman with money and an "independence" streak.

Anyone tha*****ched as this scenario unfolded knew that it wouldn't last.

Very little in common. As the old saying goes: At some point in a marriage, a nice body doesn't do it....they are going to have to talk.

Unfortunately, I see Kim becoming an old maid.....or marrying and getting divorced every 5 years 'til she's 50.

Her mother and Khloe are dopes. What has either one of them done on their own? NOTHING.

A dumb, spoiled bimbo whose family with no talent and no class feeds off the spotlight has a multimillion dollar wedding when the rest of the country is on its knees economically. And this is the type of culture and programming we as a nation are promoting by virtue of watching and supporting "reality TV". Is it any surprise that this joke of a wedding ended in 72 days? Is any surprise that this nation is going to hell in a handbasket with no moral compass? Wake the HELL up America, and stop making these sleazy reality TV shows a welcomed form of entertainment in your households.
Encourage your children to grow up with a sense of values and the abilty to recognize trash from class!

Kim Kardashian To File for Divorce! Everyone knew this marriage wasn't going to last. This is the classic case of the Princess and the Jock. She expects to be treated like a Princess 24/7... Kris just isn't up to it.

I don't know what is more VULGAR... the whole thing about spending THAT much money on a lavish weddding while so many people are struggling to pay their mortgage or feed their children, or the fact that these idiots didn't think a life committment through before spending that much money on a lavish wedding... or just the whole nonsense about the Karda****ians in general.... PEOPLE.. STOP FEEDING THEIR EGOS AND TURN THE TV CHANNEL TO SOMETHING WORTH WHILE, then maybe they will just go broke and GO AWAY!!!!

Do you think they will return the wedding gifts. God I hope so.

We all know it was a sham for publicity. These girls are all in it for the money only. Marriage is nothing to them except a way to get attention. This was probably all planned out before the wedding. She probably paid him for his part in the act.
