Kardashian set to divorce
LOS ANGELES — Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce, just 72 days after marrying basketball player Kris Humphries in a lavish wedding, celebrity news website Tmz.com said.
Kardashian, 31, star of the TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is due to file papers in Los Angeles Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences, TMZ said, citing sources close to the couple.
Kardashian’s publicist could not immediately be reached for comment.
The couple married on Aug. 20 in southern California in a wedding reported to have cost $10 million, after dating for about nine months. More than three million U.S. viewers watched a two-part TV special earlier this month called Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event.
Kardashian is one of the highest-paid reality stars on U.S. television, with 2010 earnings estimated at $6 million.
