Kim Kardashian Divorces NBA Star Husband after 72 Days of Marriage

By Nottage and Ward on November 4, 2011

Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian were married in August of this year, but after only two and a half months, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce, apparently devastating her husband. According to The Huffington Post, the reason for her soon-to-be ex-husband’s dejection may not be solely because of the divorce, but perhaps the terms of the divorce.

In the divorce documents filed by Kardashian, the reality star requested that the court reject any motion for spousal support from Humphries, in addition to requesting that each party cover their own legal fees. As per their pre-nuptial agreement, Kardashian keeps all assets of hers prior to the marriage as well as anything she earned during the marriage, however short-lived. The Kardashian family made $65 million last year, while Humphries, currently unemployed as a result of the NBA lockout, made about $3.2 million.

Kardashian and Humphries had begun dating in December 2010. After meeting his parents one month into the relationship, Kardashian and Humphries were on the fast track to marriage. Humphries proposed in May 2011 and the couple tied the knot in August, only to file for divorce 72 days later. The courtship, proposal, and marriage were all featured on Kardashian’s reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Going through a high profile divorce can be very stressful and emotionally painful. The relationship between a husband and wife is a private matter and, as such, any divorce should also remain between a husband and wife. Unfortunately this is almost impossible when the couple is constantly in the public spotlight.
