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.

They could've fed a billion starving children with all the money they wasted on that phony wedding. I bet Kris will feel great to get out of that crazy Kardashian circus.

Genius. Pure GENIUS. The money train just keeps rolling for someone who has NO talent. Has an expensive car(s), house, clothes, etc. while the rest of us are losing our shirts, yet continue to watch the brain dead show they put in our faces. That family deserves a medal for coming up with a way to fill their pockets by doing NOTHING! What a shame she has to make marriage into a joke. Please, ppl, stop watching her.

Thanks for giving me a chuckle to go with my lunch today. To top this she'll have to run for president for the season finale.

The night of the rehearsal Kris was ready to bail, but the "royalty" deal was too good to pass up. Once again the Khardasian/Jenner's are just greedy, spoiled media whores.
He's better off He can now find a "real" woman.

"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. "

if it's not a nasty divorce, why did she feel the need to hire Laura Wasser?

Kim, you're a nothing short of a disgusting pig, and a fame whore. You should be ashamed of yourself and I hope you are doomed for life. I hope all men shun you from here on out, putting on such a show - throwing around money like it's no big deal. You're sick and disgusting.
