TMZ is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries will file for divorce this morning. The two had been married for just 72 days.
Kardashian and Humphries will not seek annulment, according to reports. The reason cited for divorce is “irreconcilable differences.”
The divorce announcement comes after reports have surfaced that E! Network initially tried to set up Kardashian with a New York area professional sports star in time for the Kim and Kourtney Take New York spin off.
CBS reports that Kris Humphries was apparently not the first choice for the 30-year-old Kardashian, who initially was interested in 23-year-old Danilo Gallinari, then of the Knicks. Galinari apparently was interested in meeting Kim Kardashian, but did not want to become a reality TV star. He was later traded to the Nuggets in the blockbuster deal that moved Carmelo Anthony to New York.
The media frenzy that swarmed the couple earned them millions of dollars and viewers. By selling the photos from the wedding to People Magazine and hosting a two-day wedding special on E! the Kardashian family earned approximately $18 million.
The date of separation will be listed as October 31, 2011. The couple had signed a prenuptial agreement.
