'I'm Embarrassed'

11/4/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian wrote an emotional email to her extended family members early Monday morning -- giving them a head's up that she was filing for divorce ... and apologizing for "jumping the gun."

TMZ has learned ... Kim emailed several people on her father's side of the family in the hours before she filed the documents with the court ... saying, "I would rather you hear it from me than someone else or the news."

In the letter, Kim explains, "I know this seems crazy ... I've spent the last few months struggling with my marriage."

"Kris is a great guy but we come from such different worlds and he isn't what I thought when we 1st met."

"I'm embarrassed that I took everyone on this journey with me and had this huge wedding. But I have to be happy, so I have to let this relationship go. "

Kim's reps had no comment.

what does she mean " I've spent the last few months struggling with my marriage" ???????? she was only married for 2 of those "few months" !!!! so, what i understand is that she either wasn't sure to get married or play along with E! network ???

Kim needs to go away for a few months. I know that's not in her nature since she and her family make their money by being seen everywhere, but she's been overexposed because of the engagement and wedding this year, and she's not getting the sympathy she expects from her "adoring fans" now that she's divorcing Kris.
Take the rest of the year off Kim. The backlash is building.

She only emailed her fathers side of the family because everyone on her mothers side knew for a long time and she didnt give a crap about Kris' side. Bitch.

Sounds like the spin machine is trying to make her sound human but she is still a skanky whore who stole the ring, the gifts, the televised wedding and Kris' heart.

Attention: Kim's PR Manager

This is absolutely NOT going to work, you CAN NOT fool America, you cannot fool the world. Stop trying to fix this. This is unfixable and cant be undone - PERIOD. Please tell Kim Kardashian and family - fame is over, stop trying to fix this. No amount of money will fix this. No attorney can let you get out of this. It was a spur of the moment decision made. Tell Kim Kardashian she is not in CONTROL of things in this world. You can fix a face through botox, surgically make your rear and boobs bigger but you cannot fix genuine reasons by creating another one.

The whole family should take a holiday to Europe, slip out of the country quietly, get away from the press, keep quiet or ask Pari******on what to do. The last time we hear from Pari******on was she just finished her fashion show in Belgrade and Ukraine. Pouting in public is not going to help and tell your mother to stop her publicity rounds as she is making it worst.

Unfortunately Kim and her sisters will still do very well and still be in our faces for the next few years because every 16 - 22 girl worships them and there will still be a demand until these followers go into the real world and realise how hard it is only then will they learn to resent this type of people x

Kim: Do you know how many times you say "I" and "ME"? You think it's YOU that has the problem?

The Kardashian family is getting exactly what they want! This whole marriage was a SET UP for television. And the divorce announcement, which came conveniently at a time when their store in Vegas was about to open, the promo's for Kim and Kourtney Take New York had started, and their moms memoir was released. Look how Kim Kardashian first got famous..by leaking a sex tape. Is it really so far fetched to think a divorce would be deliberate?!

Yes, Kim he is NOT what you thought THANK GOD!!! He's wasn't what you wanted which was a materialistic, give your whole family bball seats, forget his own family (like your own selfish mom did during the wedding) selfish, phoney, self centered, do anything for money, bow down to you mom and let her pimp him type of person. Sorry! Oh an YOU were embarrassed? The slutty porn tape didn't do that for you? Really? that fact that porn is the reason you even have a career sickens me! I'm DONE!!! Nothing KarTRASHians ever again! DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She has the nerve. UNREAL THIS GIRL!

the only thing kim is distraught over is the public and the media isn't buying the charade she and her family are trying to sell.she says humphries is a nice guy,well why blindside him,only say how hard it was on you to divorce him. kim hasn't even mentioned how hard humphries might be taking this. its always about kim and her family,the mother is making the talk show circuits to sell her book and claiming what a great family they are and that something horrendous must have happened why kim is divorcing him. i thought kim just stated he was a nice guy. this family and kim didn't miss a beat in selling their books and merchandise since this was made public. that speaks volumes.
