Kim and Kris call it quits: After only 72 days

Less than three months after their lavish wedding in Montecito, Ca., Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are calling it quits. Shockingly, Kim Kardashian’s reason to file for divorce from Kris Humphries, her husband of 72 days,  is irreconcilable differences.

“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kardashian said in a statement released to Access Hollywood on Monday.

Irreconcilable differences after 72 days? Is that a joke?

These differences should have been discussed before the wedding, during the extensive six-month dating period between Kris and Kim.

“Everyone knew it wasn’t a storybook marriage and it wasn’t going to last that long, but I don’t think anyone thought they’d split up so soon,” a source told

Let’s be honest, the two were not a good match. Anyone could see the awkward “love”  during the 2-hour wedding special on “E!” (which “E!” paid $500,000 to air). The only time they weren’t arguing was at the alter, being watched by 500 of their closest friends. Their wedding cost a reported $10 million.

After the wedding, Kardashian got to know Humphries better (which you usually do BEFORE marriage. Crazy thought).

Apparently after the wedding and honeymoon, Humphries expected Kardashian to move to Minnesota with him, where he is originally from. Kardashian wanted no parts of this stating, “How am I supposed to have a career living in Minnesota?” Again, something that should have been discussed before the marriage.

Other reports claim that Kardashian is frustrated at the fact that Kris does not have a job due to the NBA lockout; he is spending all her money. Kardashian has also apparently had enough of Humphries’ partying during the NBA lockout, “acting like a single man,” flirting and taking the phone numbers of multiple women.

Kardashian and Humphries signed a pre-nuptial agreement. Her net worth is estimated to be $35 million; his is approximately $8 million.

Her decision seems to have taken Humphries by surprise. He put out a statement through his representative Monday afternoon saying, “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce,” Humphries said in a statement to Access Hollywood. “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
