Kim Kardashian has confirmed her divorce from Kris Bumphries in a statement through the network that allegedly helped their short-lived union happen.
“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” she said. “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.”
The statement comes just minutes after TMZ obtained the divorce documents filed by Kim in Los Angeles this morning.
Contrary to what some may think, a source close to Kim reveals that while she is actually saddened by the end of her marriage. The source says Kim just wanted the relationship and marriage so badly, but once she got it, it “wasn’t what it seemed.”
“All of us at E! are surprised and saddened by this news, and we send our support to Kim and Kris at this difficult time. The Kardashians have always been uniquely open with all aspects of their lives from joyous events to intimate moments to heartbreaking transitions. E! will continue to share the fascinating real lives and larger-than-life existence of this close-knit family.”
While both Kim and Kris have kept quiet today on Twitter, Kim’s sisters Khloe and Kourtney have both spoken out on her behalf. Check out what they had to say on the flip.
