Kim Kardashian files for divorce from Kris Humphries; details
Daybreak Daily’s afternoon pop-culture edition takes a closer look at the, gasp, end of a so-called celebrity marriage.
CELEB MAGS WEREN’T CRYING WOLF: Per the AP, “Just 10 weeks after her star-studded, made-for-TV wedding, reality starlet Kim Kardashian filed for divorce Monday from NBA player Kris Humphries, citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce papers filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court said there was a prenuptial agreement but gave no further details.
The divorce, if finalized, would be Kardashian's second. Humphries last played as a forward for the New Jersey Nets. The lavish Aug. 20 wedding at a private estate near Santa Barbara, Calif., was filmed for a two-part special on E!” http://apne.ws/rU10Hg
DETAILS: Per TMZ, “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.” http://bit.ly/vNi9Bn
KIM’S STATEMENT: Per Us, “"After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage," she says of Humphries, 26, whom she wed in a notoriously lavish Aug. 20 wedding in Montecito, Calif.
"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." http://bit.ly/uPyNZM
KRIS’ STATEMENT: Per E!: “Kris Humphries, who's currently with family in Minnesota, was photographed today wearing his wedding ring. And now we know why.
"I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce," he said in a statement to E! News Monday. "I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."
It sounds as if he's still hoping that this story has a happy ending.” http://eonli.ne/ttT2Ua
CAUGHT OFF GUARD: Per PerezHilton “Seems Nick Lachey and Kelly Ripa didn't get the memo in time to make a costume switch before hosting Regis and Kelly, so they paraded out in the couple’s iconic wedding garb, compete with beaded headband and some pretty nifty shoes for Nick! How's the air up there, Nick?! Ha!” http://bit.ly/vp6ZQ2
MORE DETAILS: Per Radar, “Kim Kardashian’s divorce is coming as no surprise to those close to her and RadarOnline.com has learned that one of the biggest problems in their marriage is Kim’s insatiable ego.
“She doesn’t want to live off camera she is totally insecure and addicted to fame,” a friend close to Kim told RadarOnline.com. “Everything is about her and her career, it was never about we (them as a couple)– always about me. (her!). She wouldn’t change her name, didn’t like Minnesota, not ready for kids, pretty much anything he wanted or liked she didn’t.” http://bit.ly/slzyOL
IN OTHER NEWS: Per People, “Yes, Adele is undergoing surgery on her vocal chords – but it's not because she has cancer, as some have speculated.
"We would like to reiterate that Adele is to undergo surgery for a hemorrhaged vocal chord," her rep said in a statement Monday in response to rumors on Twitter that the British singer has throat cancer. "All reports regarding any other condition are 100% false." Adele, 23, has subsequently canceled the remainder of her North American tour, in addition to several dates in the U.K.” http://bit.ly/vRsCS7
JESSICA’S PREGGIE: Per the AP, “Jessica Simpson has confirmed the obvious - she's having a baby. The 31-year-old entertainer Tweeted a photo of herself Monday dressed as a mummy for Halloween, holding her baby bump with the words, "It's true. I am going to be a mummy." It will be the first child for Simpson and her fiance Eric Johnson. The two announced their engagement last year.” http://apne.ws/rNRCGj
