News of a Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries divorce is heating up the Internet this morning. TMZ originally reported (and Ryan Seacrest confirmed with Kim) that Kardashian will file divorce papers today, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.
Kardashian and Humphries have been married for just 72 days. The reality starlet listed today, Oct. 31, 2011, as the date of separation, and hired Laura Wasser as her lawyer.
Kardashian is expected to make a statement shortly about filing for divorce.
UPDATE: Both Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian have issued statements to the public about their plans to divorce.
Kim Kardashian’s statement:
“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.”
And Kris Humphries’ statement:
“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.”
