Kim Kardashian will file for divorce this morning, after 72 days of not-so-wedded bliss to Kris Humphries … TMZ has learned.
We’re told even though the marriage was short, she will not seek an annulment. It’s a garden variety divorce, in which Kim cites “irreconcilable differences.”
We’re told the date of separation is listed as today, Oct. 31, 2011.
Kim has hired disso-queen Laura Wasser, who has repped the likes of Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds, and Robyn Gibson, Mel’s almost ex-wife.
As we first reported, the couple has a prenuptial agreement … Kim made sure of that.
Rumors of a split had been swirling for some time and the two were spotted out to dinner earlier this week … looking less than pleased with one another.
Kim even attended a Halloween party without Kris yesterday!
Kim Kardashian hit the New York party scene over the weekend, but again her new husband, Kris Humphries, was nowhere to be seen. On Saturday night, Humphries did a disappearing act as Kim hosted a Midori party at Lavo in Midtown. Dressed as Poison Ivy in a green bustier outfit and red wig, she stuck close to her friend Jonathan Cheban, the ultimate sidekick dressed as Robin. Sources told us Humphries â€œwas supposed to be there but flew home to see his family in Minnesota instead.â€
So why did Kim & Kris breakup…
Kim Kardashian will never, ever move to Minnesota … everyone knows that … except Kris Humphries.
Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ … one of the main points of contention in the marriage was where the couple would live after all of the wedding madness finally died down.
We’re told Kris was passionate about eventually settling down in Minnesota, where he’s from … and believed Kim was on board with the plan. She wasn’t.
Sources tell us Kim — who’s from L.A. — wants to stay near her family … and she also feels that staying in town is the best thing for her career.
So why didn’t this conversation come up before the $10 million wedding? We’re told the two talked about their future … but got caught up in the hooplah and figured they would simply figure it out after they tied the knot.
Sources say it’s not a nasty break-up … but we’re told the two have come to a realization that it’s not a long-term fit.
