It’s been heralded on Twitter as a ‘Kardashi-sham’, but was the announcement of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries split really such a shock to a nation who had their doubts from the word go? Even Khloe Kardashian had made her point very clear on the Kardashian Wedding Special show as she asked her Mother, Chris Jenner, to make sure that herself and Khloe would be protected should anything go wrong with the marriage seen as they are in business with Kim with K-Dash.
Announcing her divorce plans earlier on Monday, Kim has already stepped out at LAX airport without her engagement and weddings rings. The 31-year-old reality TV star looked tired as she made her way to her flight to Australia. Kris, reportedly ‘devastated’ by the announcement, has been accused of chasing fame and ‘hiring a Hollywood publicist’, according to the TMZ gossip website.
The whole marriage was said to have netted the former couple a whopping $18million but according to Radaronline.com, the whole thing was a hoax. An unknown source told the website: “It was pretty much an arranged marriage right from the start. Kim was looking for a husband and Kris was selected for her, amongst others. She wasn’t really into him but she hoped she would be able to develop some feelings, but it never happened. She was never particularly attracted to him, and by all accounts absolutely hated sleeping with him or even having to make out with him.”
Unlike his former other half, Kris has been spotted in his home state of Minnesota, still wearing his wedding ring as he took to the gym. He stated: “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.”
After previous tweets before the wedding, Kim detailed how she hoped their marriage would last forever, but still ensured they both signed a prenuptial agreement before they got hitched at a lavish ceremony on August 20 in Montecito, California.
According to reports, Kim has hired top divorce lawyer, Laura Wasser, former lawyer to the likes of Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Ryan Reynolds. US Weekly have said the couple’s assets will be divided in accordance with their prenuptial agreement.
E! have announced that they will, “continue to share the fascinating real lives and larger-than-life existence of this close-knit family”, also adding “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.”
