LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Kim Kardashian filed for divorce Monday morning, after just 72 days of marriage to former New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries.

Kardashian is not seeking an annulment, but instead cited “irreconcilable differences,” according to documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

TMZ’s Harvey Levin talks to KNX 1070 about why the couple split.

Documents show she is represented by attorney Laura Wasser, who has also worked for Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie and Ryan Reynolds.

“Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins,” E! News host and “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” executive producer Ryan Seacrest confirmed early Monday morning on Twitter.

“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands that 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 later said through her publicist, Pearl Servat.

The couple has a prenuptial agreement and Kardashian is not seeking spousal support.

Rumors of a split have been circulating since the couple wed in Montecito on Aug. 20. As TMZ’s Harvey Levin told KNX 1070 Monday, the couple split over where they would live. Humphries wanted Kardashian to settle in Minnesota, but she wanted to remain in Los Angeles, Levin said.

This is Kardashian’s second marriage. She was married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004.

Kardashian’s sister, Khloe Kardashian Odom, is also taking to Twitter to defend her.

“Reading some these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything,” she wrote Monday. “Thank God for family. We are strong and we will only become closer! I love YOU.”

    S-U-R-P-R-I-S-E-!!!!!!!. Who is this news to??????…..he was the stupid one. How do you expect a marriage to last when you don’t know each other. He’s was star struck and she was a romanticist who just had to have a husband. She’ll move on and stay in the headlines. He’s the real loser. In more ways than one.

    1. Remy says:

      yeah, he was dumb indeed. I know a couple people who personally met Kim before and she was a total jerk. And he’s Just another dumb man who falls for a real jerk but gets involved with her anyway because she’s so hot, and will do anything to stay with her. But he failed miserably.

    2. Whisky…Tango… Foxtrot says:

      This is really great news, because now Kim can concentrate on her flourishing singing and acting career…..haha..Ha!Ha!…HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!

  2. Kidd says:

    Shocker! The marriage was just done for ratings of their show. Anyone who watches that show is a sucker

  3. orlando says:

    Im suprised it lasted this long.

  4. jackie says:

    Who cares…They’re just a bunch of narcissistic, self-centered females who are a disgrace to their gender and their faith. I show them to my daughters as an example of who they shouldn’t become. We have been blessed with a good life and financial wealth and I DO NOT want any of my children taking their blessings for granted, the way that these girls, (and they are girls, not women), have taken their lives for granted. And a wedding!!! Look at all the gay couples who have been together for years and years and yet cannot get married! What a mockery these girls have made of the rite of marriage. At least gay couples understand the sacred bond of love between two people, God, and the community. Shame on you Kardashian’s. Shame!

  5. Anthony says:

    Typical spoiled brat who doen’t know what she wants

  6. Mfamous says:

      AAAaaah we all saw this arranged (desperate Marriage by KIM) was doomed for disaster ! And how much $$$ did she get paid for the publicity on her wedding ceremony? Cha-ching !! to the bank !! quick $$ to be made. I predicted it wasn’t going to last. I say: WHAT a JOKE !!

  8. steve says:

    The only word that comes to mind when the Kardashians are involved is obscene.

    1. yourbiznes says:

      Could you also use the concept of “White Trash”?

  9. Paul Murray says:

    however paid for the wedding should as for a refund. you she didnt

  10. Hilda Gonzalez says:

    Well there goes my pool money. I gave them at least 6 months.

  11. South Bay says:

    She is too pretentious, self absorbed and materialistic for Kris. He seems like a good guy down to earth. She’s never going to find someone to make her happy and a guy who has everything she wants will not want her. She is so boring.

  12. patie b says:

    I imagine constantly being in the news and with the paparazzi following you always cant be easy and she is in the newsworthy for what??? oh yea i forgot that carls jr ad she did lol

  13. PF says:

    A true demonstration of maturity….

  14. Jack Ritoli says:

    Who cares? The media is just give her free publicity. This is NOT news.

  15. Jack says:

    You hate this? Lets protest the right way.

    Its time to ban all advertisers for CBS news as punishment for posting this useless information.

    Everyone stop going to TGI Fridays, they sponsor this article.



    When I saw your ad on Yahoo sponsoring a page informing more useless information on the Kardashians, I have chosen not to be a customer of your business any longer. My apologies.

    1. Christina39 says:

      I like your idea. I am ashamed I even opened this article.

  16. MikeG says:

    Can’t we just go back and delete all the web info about them getting married in the first place and call it even?

  17. Sue says:

    Really?? Am I surprised? NOOO!! She is so materialistic and so plastic, she got what she deserved. Hahahaha!!

  18. louise says:

    Time to set the DVR for the divorce proceedings. This E! be taping this live too!!!!!!

  19. d voice says:

    wonder wut this dumb Ho’s r gonna do for ratings now?

    1. Christina39 says:

      Anytime any of you post here. THAT IS RATINGS!!!!!!!. Imagine how she would feel when she cames to this site and NOBODY POSTED. So stop posting. It’s a reality show, cheap to produce and brings in millions for each show. DON’T POST. NEGATIVE POSTS ARE POSTS. NEGATIVE POSTS ARE RATINGS. Think about it, would you post if I got married?

  20. Goldie says:

    My first & last comment on the KarTrashdian tribe–a New Low in seeking celebrity status.

  21. Jackie Gossett says:

    She’ll have to figure out how to marry herself — at least we know there wasn’t love involved —

  22. Paul Castillo says:

    So is this the sanctity the Christian Right is so adament about protecting from those evil gay people? With life still being rough because of the economy. Thank God we still have the GOP to turn to for comedy relief.

    1. Guest says:

      I’ve read in the news recently about several gay couples who were married in states where it became legal recently, and they are now divorcing, fighting over child custody, etc…those in the gay community who are legally married don’t have the monopoly on the ‘sanctity of marriage’…don’t blame the “Christian Right” just because of the comments you read about the sanctity of marriage. It’s happening in both hetero and gay marriages. I am a Christian, and I don’t think gay people are ‘evil’. It’s a shame that people misunderstand so much of what people are saying when they refer to the ‘sanctity of marriage’…there’s a difference between getting married for money and fame and getting married for love, to serve each other, respect and support each other…period!

  23. kims wanna be boy toy says:

    so does this mean there not together anymore? or what???

  24. Jorge says:

    Can I have my toaster wedding gift back?

  27. KeithS says:

    Wow, what an amazing sense of business both Kim and Gene Simmons have displayed this year-using the institution of marriage to drum up ratings and keep them in the limelight.
    Funny, we don’t mind Simmon’s ploy to marry Shannon Tweed because at least Simmons has been truthful enough to say the moves he makes are usually about the money. My belief is Kim was upset at becoming the “forgotten” sister the last couple of years since even her mom and youngest siblings were getting a lot more face time. Love Kim or hate her, she set out to do one thing and she accomplished it perfectly.
    Seems so odd that this story breaks a day after the Madoff family lied in order to promote a book.So much fraud, so little time.

  28. Joseph says:

    WHO CARES!!!!!! Another unimportant divorce…….tell us something new already….Oh wow..

  29. mfamous says:

    Ah yes. By all means. Keep preserving that sanctity of marriage! Good thing I married my husband, in that tiny little window when same sex marriage was actually legal. 17 YEARS TOGETHER BY THE WAY!

  30. Igor Doublebubblevich. says:

    kim wants/loves BLACK meet

  31. trouble in paradise says:

    This is why you date for a couple of years. Is she THAT dumb that her and Humphries did not talk about where they were going to live, kids, etc? I guess the pre-nup was in order though. I am actually surprised it lasted THAT long.

  32. Al-Qaeda says:

    She did him a favor.

  33. Dr. Ortizmo says:

    This whole trip was a fake just like everything else that takes place on Reality TV shows. The Kardashians keep living up to the moral bankruptcy and classless behaviour of people making up the three ring circus of Reality TV stars. The Kardashians and Jenners are plastic materialistic egocentric people who would be helping the world if they and their entire realm dissapeared. Karma will come to their door and it won’t be a pretty picture. All the enhancements that their money can buy won’t keep their true inner ugliness from showing through. Stop watching the Kardashians and their trainwreck life.

  34. veer says:

    Kim , not the marrying type. By the way. what is her talent or skill that made her famous? beauty? there are thousands out there who are prettier.

  35. kosher says:

    theme armenians got it made in the good ole usa . Ship her back to urvan

  36. LA WOMAN says:

    I admit it, I watch the Kardasian shows. From the moment Kris joined her family trip to Bora Bora, it was clear that they were so not made for each other. He was too blinded by her beauty to see how high maintenance she is. Kim, you are so in love w/the concept of being in love. You could see yourself marrying every guy you’re with. Instead of trying to be Ms Perfect, take some time to be real w/yourself. Let loose. Enjoy life. Not in a Paris Hilton-bar hopping sort of way. Be your own person AWAY from your meddling mom. Once you know what you want & can love yourself, then search for Mr Right. And TAKE YOUR TIME! You need to know someone’s habits, quirks & deal breakers before you walk down the aisle. You’ve been voted the most annoying celebrity or something like that. Time to keep a low profile. Take a break, girl.

    1. MIke in San Diego says:

      You lost me at, ‘I watch the Kardisian shows.’ Let me guess, you’re over thirty, single-mom (oh yeah, that’s not a badge of honor), with a toddler, drive a min-van, you nag your married friends to go out on ‘girls night out’, have met men over the internet, and the topper, you have more than two cats. Bam!! I called it!

      1. LA WOMAN says:

        Let me see Mike, I left a pretty common sensical, anti-high maintenance, anti-Hilton bar hopping, do-the-right-thing type of message. Do you think a practical thinking person would be anything like you described? Bam! You’re WRONG!

    2. Ron says:

      Not as long as she can keep taking the rewards of her annoying celebrity to the BANK. If people stop watching her show, she and her MOTHER, will have to think of another way to make money.

  37. Marco says:

    So is Kris available to date now?

  38. offtheproperty says:

    Why wouldn’t Kim “prostitute the institution of marriage”?
    She has already prostituted the institution of porn.
    She is on the short list for Anti-Christ.

  39. Life Soldier says:

    That this even made it as a story on a “respectable” news outlet is a very sad commentary upon just how disconnected from whats really important going on in the world around us a large portion of Americans are. That her 72 day marriage is more news worthy than even a single soldiers death is disgusting to say the least.

  40. wgaf says:

    I would bang him for free.

  41. duh. says:

    I always see her taking photos of herself with her cell phone camera with her arm stretched out to get the right angle. HA. She really is in love with herself. When she takes her own picture, she looks completely obsessed with herself.

    Kris, find a nice sweet girl from Minnesota.

  42. Fishnmike says:

    Q. What is the modern day equivalent to an ancient Chinese curse?
    A. May you marry a Kardashian.

  43. TCB1 says:

    She’s leaving the door open for Reggie Bush. He could use some publicity now that he “Stinks” on the football field!

  44. A. Alexander says:

    at least Gene was with the same person for 28 years before he married her; I mean Kim K didn’t even know Kris for a whole year! WTH?! She just wanted ratings and attention and she got them both. She is way too high maintenance for anybody…unless they have a video camera. LOL!

  45. Mustang says:

    There is a lesson to be learned. No matter how fancy the wedding had to be and how big the audience and to show the wedding taped to be aired on the E! Channel – the most important part of this is communication and trust. All the work each designer did and the invitation that had to put in – it did cost a lot of money. Kim should have communicated with Kris about the living location. Look how many NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL players have multilpe homes. Sometimes a wife moves in with the husband or vice-versa. Kim has to learn communication and trust. She wanted the whole world to watch this wonderful wedding. She looked fabulous. But to turn around and throw it away without first consulting with the hubby. Does everyone need to know who got or will get married in such and such day? This is why it wasn’t okay to air a wedding to be taped and shown for ratings. Now the humiliation comes in making her feel the wedding was a waste. Everything is encircled around Kim. Next time a wedding should be formal and in secrecy. Before getting together – talk to the partner to be. Give time to date and get to know the person. Now get up and start a whole new day. Just go away from the news media to a place where you can refocus on the things you need to do. Take a vacation and isolate yourself then give it two months or more and comeback refreshed. Don’t show a lot of yourself or become conceited. The problem is to never show too much. A wedding doesn’t have to be bigger than a normal wedding. Ego ruins the marriage altogether. Husband and wife have to come in agreement. This is a prime example based on communication. How many men that Kim comes in contact will know her. She has to lay low and rethink everything. This was a drastic mistake. But a mistake to be learned.

  46. Stephen says:

    Who’s Kim Kardashian? And why is everyone upset about her getting a divorce?

  47. Really, what happened to the sanctity of marriage in this country?? Or having a little dignity?? Like either of them didn’t see this coming…and yet still went along with it!

    1. Ron says:

      Kim SOLD her dignity many years ago, with her SEX tape !!! And since she has already been DIVORCED once, there is NO SANCTITY of marriage, as far as Kim is concerned. MONEY is everything for her. What do you call a woman or a man, that will do anything for MONEY?
