After 72-days of marriage to professional basketball player Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian is reportedly filing for divorce.
“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kardashian, 31, told E!. “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.”
Kim Kardashian has not given a specific reason for the split and Kris Humphries has not spoken on the split yet.
According to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court this morning, Kim listed their date of separation as October 31, 2011. The couple married on August 20, 2011.
“All of us at E! are surprised and saddened by this news, and we send our support to Kim and Kris at this difficult time,” the network that aired Kim’s wedding said in a statement.
Kim and Kris got engaged in May 2011 after dating for just six months. The wedding occurred just 3 months after the engagement.
