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.

Now, Mommy Kardashian is going to sell the exclusive for another 5 million dollars and take her 10% profit for herself. People likes their trashy show, that's why they became rich.

The wedding was a money making scam. I am sure they both raked in millions from endorsements on merchandise and publicity if not more.

This just proves how dumb marriage is these days. All it is is a poorly written contract, that is, unless you have it tailored to "benefit" your career. Wow. Their entire family makes jokes out of real life, and laughs all the way to the bank. Isn't it obvious she only vetted him because his name looked good next to hers? I can't wait to see the way they spin this sob story to make it look like she gave a ****. Ugh, that entire family should be handled the way the rest of the world handles gypsies. They are literally running the biggest scam on the planet right now.

Yeah right ...    

What a load of B.S.
Let's see ... 10M party... lots of publicity...w*f, did everyone think this was for real? ROFL

Listen, this was the greatest stunt I've ever seen. They got millions and crazy publicity.

You've all been fooled by the biggest money grabbers out there: The Kardashians ... pimp and ho your kids for the bling people, that's how the K-fam made it!

In this weak economy they flaunt this big lavish a@@ wedding in everyone's face just to be divorced after two freaking months cause her career takes priority over her marriage. Why the hell get married. Whether it was cameras or not, sh@@ wasn't cool.

It's so sad that the $10 mil. was waisted especially since that money could've gone to something better and more deserving like, I don't, KIDS FIGHTING CANCER! What about all of the people here in the US starving because people can't find work...just to mention a few. Shame on you!

...And some say that Albert Einstein was the most brilliant man who ever lived.

What??? Please!!!


The most brilliant man who ever lived was the man who coined the phrase "One should never attempt to make a ho into an housewife."


And to this day no truer words have ever been spoken. Men take note.


She will file divorce papers today after only 72 days of marriage, this b#tch better return all those gifts pronto, or catch a well earned beating.


Damn shame....Artofwar

Kim Kardashian in Minnesota? Not a chance in hell...There aren't enough drooling, idiotic fans to slobber over her there, and there certainly aren't enough paparazzos to follow her around, snapping pics of her every single second...This woman is a total publicity whore, and she will NEVER, EVER leave LA.

Guess her fame-whore mom was right all along insisting that Kim keep her last name. In the end, Chris Jenner got all she really wanted -- a ratings bonanza and her 10%! All the dysfuntion in the norally bankrupt Kardashian clan can be laid squarely at mom's feet. Poor Chris never had a chance.

Wasted all that money. Do you know what 10 million can do for people today whose out of work, homeless, hungry and in other countries where children need food. They both should be slapped in the face hard.

She broke the cardinal rule! She went BACK after she went BLACK. It never works out. That's why America has to re-elect Obama, or vote for Herman Cain.

I am TOTALLY disappointed that Kim made a mockery of the sanction of marriage. I used to like her, but it is obvious that she is very superficial. SHAME ON HER!!!
