Kim Kardashian Divorce

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:09 am by demetriagraves

After spending $10 million on a spectacular highly publicized wedding on August 20, 2011. Then a having dream honeymoon, its seems like its over for newlyweds Kim Kardashian, 31 and Kris Humphries, 26 after only 72 days of marriage. Perhaps Kim only wanted the big ring and the celebrity wedding for her reality show but didn’t think much about the actual realities of marriage because she has filed for divorce on Oct 31, 2011. It’s a good thing neither of them actually paid for the wedding, in fact they made more than $17 million out of their wedding in TV and magazine deals. There are rumors that the split comes from a difference of opinion on where the couple wanted to live. Kris was planning on settling down in Minnesota while Kim wanted to stay in California so she could be close to her family.

The reality star cited “irreconcilable differences” in her divorce papers and she is not asking for spousal support. She is also requesting that no spousal support be paid to her future ex. So the NBA star won’t be getting any of Kardashian’s money. Kardashian also asks that each party pay their own attorney fees.

Indeed, there’s a huge financial gulf between the future exes. Kim helped her family rake in $65 million in 2010 alone thanks to endorsement deals, a Sears clothing line, her own perfume and earnings from her E! reality shows.

By contrast, Humphries – currently not working thanks to the NBA lockout – made a reported $3.2 million a year as a forward for the New Jersey Nets.

There are rumors that the athlete was the victim of an “investment fraud,” thanks to Andrey C. Hicks, a scam artist and a guest at their doomed August wedding. Humphries is said to have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars for investing in Hicks’ bogus “billion dollar” hedge fund.

This is Kardashian’s second divorce, she wed music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 when she was just 19 and he filed for divorce two years later.

“I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision,” Kardashian said, “I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don’t work out as planned.”
