Kim Kardashian Files for Divorce

Denise Truscello/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- The rumors are apparently true: Kim Kardashian and her NBA star hubby Kris Humphries have split. The couple, whose brief courtship and lavish wedding fueled ratings for E!'s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, have gone their separate ways, just 72 days after they tied the knot.

ABC News Radio obtained the following statement from Kardashian: "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."


Kardashian and Humphries had been seen in public separately of late, sparking rumors things weren't as rosy as the events on Kim's reality show and the four-hour spin-off special Kim's Fairytale Wedding would have viewers believe.

She is citing the showbiz industry standard "irreconcilable differences" as the cause of the split, but in his own statement, Humphries seems to indicate he had no idea Kim's legal action was coming. "I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce. I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents, and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."
