Kim Kardashian Confirms Divorce In Statement To E! News

October 31, 2011 12:49 PM by Megan Thompson

Kim Kardashian filed for divorce today and now she has released a statement to E! news confirming her divorce to Kris Humphries.  Kim and Kris were married this past August in a lavish wedding ceremony that aired on E! So what does Kim Kardashian have to say about ending her short marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries?  Keep reading to find out.

Today Kim Kardashian filed for divorce, which will put an end to her short marriage of only 72 days.  Fans saw Kim fall in love with Kris Humphries, and even got to see the couple get engaged, on the hit show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.  Immediately following the couple’s $10 million dollar wedding, the media speculated there was trouble in the newlyweds relationship.  Well now, it seems the tabloids were right on this story.  So what does Kim have to say? 

Kim has released a statement to E! news, which confirms she and Kris Humphries are headed for divorce.  Kim Kardashian shared, “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage.  I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision.  I hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned.  We remain friends and wish each other the best.” 

Since the news broke about the divorce, there has been no word from Kris Humphries.  When Kim showed up to a Halloween party this past weekend, without Kris, she told everyone he was in Minnesota.  Maybe he plans to hideout in his hometown for awhile.

As for why the couple is splitting, that hasn’t been shared.  The couple did sign a prenup before getting married, so there shouldn’t be any drama over their division of assets.  But what about Kim Kardashian’s 20.5 carat engagement ring?  I wonder if Kim will keep the ring or return it to Kris.

Let us know what you think Kim Kardashian should do with her huge engagement ring, comment below!

    She should keep the ring and auction it for charity. Those of us loyal fans who followed the Kardashians since the start could see that Kris was about the spotlight and acting was not his forte, it felt like he was reading a script on the show. It might also give peace to those who felt they should have had guests donate to charity instead of buying them gifts. All my best to Kim.

    Isn’t an engagement ring a gift conditioned upon marriage? Thus, the ring belongs to Kim, unless there is a provision in the pre-nup which requires her to return the ring.

    I think Kris has just got himself a lucky escape!

    Personally, I would think the dissolving of a marriage at this incredible amount of time, would reflect that it was done for publicity and money. Since the Kim’s family benefited more financially than anyone else, I would say the decent thing would be for Kim to return the ring to Kris. She is the one instigating the divorce and because they requested no gifts, etc. it seems as though it was more of a publicity stunt than a wedding. S

    Give the ring back to Kris Humpries.
    She is divorsing him after 72 days. She does not deserve the 20 plus carat ring.

    She should return the engagement ring as a matter of respect, or let him decide what she should do with it. If it was indeed a divorce that she wanted then definately give it to him.

    It was kind of obvious from the get-go that this marriage was not going to work… although we all hoped it would… as for the ring???? i say give it back… what’s the point in holding onto something, that no longer has any meaning… Kim K deserves better anyway…

    Kim should give back the ring if she has any dignity, even if it was agreed upon by a contractual obligation. If she keeps the ring, it is only going to demonstrate she is so money-hungry. She already benefited by selling her wedding photos for a million dollars! I just couldn’t believe they were even deciding who was going to give away their frequent flyer miles to be able to fly Kris’s pastor! Good grief–they make tons of money. Don’t understand why they are so freaking frugal.

    She should give the ring back, send all gifts back, reimburse E-news for the 4 hour torture, & Apologize to the world for putting so much focus on herself when there are real world problems. Maybe she could stay out of the public eye for 72 days or months & give all of us a break.

    I think she should give it back….she has more than enough money…she planned every detail of the over dramatic wedding…she filed for divorce…..it was all publicity…

    I believe that Kris was smitten with Kim, her looks and lifestyle, and Kim herself was on the rebound from Reggie, also feeling the need to fulfill her “fantasy wedding”. I do not for one second believe they were in love with each other. This is unfortunate because examples like this are what give people the impression that marriage is something you can walk into and out of, on a whim, like a drive thru. A lot of people paid their share for this wedding to happen, it’s almost a joke. I don’t see any evidence of anyone pursuing counseling. And yes, Kim should give that ridiculous ring back to Kris. It is given as a promise of marriage, and yes, the promise was fulfilled. However, given these circumstances(cost of ring and length of marriage)I think she would do well to return it. No children to pass it to. Incidentally, if he isn’t working, he could use the money. How many millions?

    I agree with Lisa! I am a HUGE FAN and just didn’t see Kim grow old with Kris? It’s a pity though..but see it as a just another chapter in life..can’t the “Ausie Hunk/Body Guard” come back…you guys made such a cute couple! Auction the ring and donate it to charity..imagine the many hungry faces you will be feeding…best of luck Kim – I STILL LOVE YOU!!!

    Kris brought her the ring for the wedding purpose, now if he is the one who asked for divorce she can keep the ring, on the other hand, if Kim is the one who called for divorce then she should return the ring to him. She got much better things to keep than a ring.

    I honestly wasn’t suprised about this at all finding out, Kris is a good kid and shouldn’t be in this sort of situation th girl basically lives for the limelight and flashing lights which probably why he couldn’t take it.

    everyone who watched the show knew that that wedding wound not have lasted, she was jealous of her sister khloe and her wedding. Kim always wants to be in the spotlight,everyone knew there was no love there.She thinks only she deserved happiness, and the other are so short changed because of her. Well atleast she got a fairytale wedding like she wanted but khole got the fairytale MARRIAGE. That’s what counts.
