Is nothing sacred anymore? Can a professional famous person no longer cast her husband, marry him in an E!-sponsored televised ceremony, and live happily ever after in HD? TMZ is reporting that Kim Kardashian plans to file for divorce today, saying goodbye to her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries.
Rumors have been circulating about the couple’s unhappiness practically since the day they got hitched. They’d begun spending more and more time apart, and last week the story broke that E! may have held a casting session of sorts to track down a professional basketball player for Kim to date right before she met Kris.
People (goofballs) were calling Kim and Kris’ ceremony, “America’s royal wedding,” which is very sad and makes it all to fitting that they’re already splitting up. Apparently, Kim has hired superlawyer Laura Wasser to handle the divorce proceedings — which the couple will go through with instead of simply getting the short marriage annulled. The two had a pre-nup, naturally.
The dissolution of a fake marriage shouldn’t surprise anyone, but it’s rather alarming that they couldn’t even keep up the charade for more than two months. Romance is dead, you guys, it’s dead.
