Reality tv star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce on Oct. 31, 2011 after a whirlwind 72 days of marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries.
Kardashian is seeking a divorce, not an annulment, citing “irreconcilable differences,” according to TMZ.
E! mogul Ryan Seacrest, who produces Kim’s reality tv shows, confirmed the split on Oct. 31:
“Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning,” Seacrest tweeted Monday.
Kim, 31, and Kris, 26, married Aug. 20 in a lavish televised wedding on a private estate in tony Montecito, Calif., after dating for less than a year.
Kardashian, who signed a prenuptial agreement, has recently been spotted out alone at hotspots in New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles while Kris has reportedly been partying and hanging out with friends during the NBA lockout.
While Kim had initially denied rumors her marriage was in trouble, unnamed sources told tabloids she was unhappy that Kris was unemployed and partying while she was out promoting her reality shows and self-branded merchandise.
Kardashian was previously married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000-2004.
Kim’s business commitments have reportedly torn the couple apart since the marriage.
Kris didn’t make a recent trip to the Mideast with Kim, even though he’s not playing right now because of the NBA lockout. Momager Kris Jenner, went instead.
During a recent public appearance, however, the couple seemed to be on an even keel.
They dined with Kim’s sister Kourtney and boyfriend Scott Disick, at Hurricane Club in New York last night.
They were spotted leaving the restaurant holding hands, and both were wearing their wedding rings, according to various reports.
Kim and Kris, who married in a lavish wedding in August, although a four-hour television special featuring planning and preparation for the wedding was filled with tension.
Kris seemed like an awkward addition to the Kardashian clan and sister Khloe questioned his motive for marrying Kim.
Kris also doesn’t seem to enjoy the intense tabloid coverage that follows Kim.
