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.

Don't worry..she's covered. I'm sure the whole wedding circus made her as much money as she spent. And as her mother summed her up "She's a good business person." There you go. She'll have a new boyfriend within weeks.

What a farce. Anyone believing this wasn't set up from the beginning is delusional. Total publicity whores from the "get go."

I don't think marriage is for Kim. She cares more about her career and staying in LA than getting married and anything else. On the show, she didn't even want to drop the Kardashian last name! Kris should have figured that out. It's a shame but not a shock. What is a shock is that Khloe and Lamar are still married.

I am so appalled by all of this! I no longer have respect for her, her family, or for E! I have removed all shows Kardashian and E related from my DVR! This was a farce from the beginning and it wouldn't have been a problem if they hadn't taken it as far as MARRIAGE! That is a sacred union and should be respected more than this! I pray Reggie leave that skank where she is!

Kim is nothing but a fame whore. Everything about her is fake. I wish the whole Kardashian family would go away. There show is about nothing but a spoiled family and how hard it is for them to keep up with each other. They need to be more realistic and do something good w all that money instead of parade it around.

Not a big surprise... If true, no way he could realistically expect her to move to Minny when she spends her entire time between CA, FL, and NY.

Also, she couldn't survive two weeks with physical contact with a family member. That whole family is very tight, and they all are still attached to the same umbilical cord.
