The reality starlet’s soon to be ex Kris Humphries is said to be 'devastated'
Just hours after Ryan Seacrest - producer of Kim’s Keeping Up with the Kardashian’s show - revealed the news on Twitter, the reality TV starlet told fans it had not been 'an easy decision'.
Speaking in a statement broadcast on entertainment channel E! she said: 'After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision.
'I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.'
It’s thought the starlet has hired top divorce Laura Wasser, who has worked with A-listers Britney Spears and Angelina Jolie, and will cite ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for the split.
'I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents,' the US basketball star told American magazine Us Weekly in a statement.
'I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce,' he added. 'I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.'
Kim and Kris married at a private residence in California on August 20, in one of the biggest celebrity ceremonies of the year.
The couple, who earned a reported $18 million from the lavish ceremony are said to have raked in a whopping $250,000 each day in deals and endorsements.
