Update: Ryan Seacrest, executive producer of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” confirmed the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries divorce proceedings on Twitter.
@ kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins,” he tweeted.
E!, the network that airs ”Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” also confirmed the divorce and said a statement is forthcoming.
Here’s a link to the divorce papers.
Kim Kardashian is reportedly filing divorce papers today to end her marriage to Kris Humphries. You know, the marriage that spawned a multi-million-dollar, product-placement-filled wedding that was broadcast in a two-part E! extravaganza. Yes, it is indeed surprising that the relationship is already allegedly over, especially after the couple established such a solid, reality-television-based foundation.
This breaking news comes from TMZ, which reports that Kardashian has hired attorney Laura Wasser — the same lawyer representing Maria Shriver in her divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger — and will file papers this morning that name Oct. 31, as the date of separation between she and her basketball-playing husband. Those papers will reportedly cite the classic “irreconcilable differences,” as the reason for the split.
Rumors that the marriage might be screeching to a halt started pretty much the millisecond after the “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding” special finished airing earlier this month on E!. The couple wed back in August in Montecito, Calif., which means their roughly two-month marriage lasted only slightly longer than it took me to watch both parts of the “Kim Kardashian Fairytale Wedding” and write recaps of them.
Kardashian, who spent the weekend celebrating Halloween in New York and emulating Uma Thurman’s look from “Batman & Robin,” has been mum about the split on her Twitter feed. In fact, she has barely mentioned Humphries at all in any of her recent tweets, although she did take the time to note that her new store, Kardashian Khaos, is opening Tuesday in Las Vegas.
Of course, the term Kardashian khaos, in addition to being misspelled, now has an unintended meaning.
