The couple had been dogged by rumors of a split for weeks. But yesterday, as we foretold, Kim Kardashian finally filed for divorce from NBA power forward Kris Humphries, her husband of six weeks.
Official confirmation of the Kim Kardashian-Kris Humphries split came in a statement from Kim (31), which read:
“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”
Kris Hmphries has also released a statement which appears to show he is very shocked over his impending divorce:
“I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
Kim has since been spotted not wearing either her wedding or her engagement ring when, just a few hours after announcing her divorce, she flew to Sydney, Australia, from the Los Angeles International Airport.
She is to appear live on Australian TV with her sister Khloe on Thrsday. The pair will make an appearance on the morning news program Sunrise. They are in the country to launch their new handbag collection, which they designed with Bruno Schiavi, but it is probably Kim Kardashian divorcing Kris Humphries that will grab most headlines.
So is it over then, despite Kris Humphries’ apparent shock? What did you think to one of the shortest celebrity marriages in history?
