A whole 72 days after walking down the aisle with NBA player Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce Monday morning.
The unhappy couple is not seeking an annulment, and Kim checked off the usual “irreconcilable differences,” asking the court to deny spousal support to Humphries.
It’s the second divorce for Kim — who split with music producer Damon Thomas in 2004 after four years of marriage — and the first for Humphries, who was blindsided by the filing, according to TMZ, and is “bummed.”
As it’s all but impossible to remember, they very loosely tied the knot on August 20 at a ceremony that was estimated to cost around $10 million. (You somehow missed that? A re-run of the two-part, four-hour Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event is scheduled to air from 8 a.m.-noon on E! Tuesday.)
We’re not saying we’re perfect over here, but we would have had the decency to fake it for 18 months or so. Seriously, we’ve committed to packs of gum for longer than 72 days.
