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.
