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.

He's an immature, redneck, mildly retarded ahole. He seemed pissed that he couldn't control things and was a jerk to her family. Kim rushed into it after bouncing around like a pinball from one jock to the next. Maybe she's finally learned a lesson from it.

Is anyone REALLY surprised that this "marriage" has come to an end after 2 and a half months? It was ALL done for ratings and BOTH of them will rot in hell for using the sanctity of marriage for the almighty $$$$

I could have told him she wouldn't go to Minnesota. They probably don't have a Hermes store there. All I can say is that this guy must be incredibly dumb to have gotten himself involved with these fame whores. Everything they do is for the cameras.

KIM: The extravagant event you put on didn't come close to what people who are not as RICH, not as FORTUNATE, for good fortune and LOVE is never in the BANK. I have tried to put together a wedding, as a single mother for my 27 year old daughter who is truly IN LOVE and has a gentle man and gentleman who is IN LOVE with her...........scraping together $10,000 has been extremely hard, but we did it........together. The people who will be there are FRIENDS, true friends, family, and kind souls.

I wish I could have phoned you and asked for a mere $20,000.00 to put on this event, but "you don't know me and you don't care." Marriage is sacred, marriage is LOVE, marriage is not notoriety.........I am sorry for you, I pray for you, I am glad my daughter worked and scrapped every penny she could, along with her fiance, who worked 3 jobs to help me pay for this wedding.......People who have money really don't GIVE, for they really don't care about anyone or anything other than glitz and glamour,,,,I am sorry your marriage didn't work out,,,take time to get to know your next husband....if you find one who you can really love........

This reason is so fake!! Kris just smartened-up to the fact that not only is she a famewhore, she's an actual whore and he can't make a ho a wife.

He's even stupider than she is. He really thought she'd move to Minnesota. Really?

I don't know who is dumber? TMZ, Kim or the fools that keep up with them. Does anyone have ANY clue how much good $10million could have done those less fortunate. What a bunch of D.A's.

Was there one person in the world who ever thought this was a real marriage? Kim only loves herself. I do get a big laugh out of her "career" though, porn star/media whore

The 'All about Me' ideal seldom fits into any serious relationship, and it works both ways. Why spend 10M on the circus? Ya'll could have fed a lot of people with that money.

I'm guessing it's because he found out she and her ugly step-sisters were actually born w/penises.
