Kim Kardashian speaks out about divorce: 'I married for love'
Kim Kardashian is speaking out about the news of her recent split from Kris Humphries and is refuting rumors that her marriage was all for television ratings.
The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star wrote a blog post on her official website on Tuesday, November 1, which was addressed to her fans.
"This is probably the hardest thing I've ever had to write," Kardashian began the post. She added, "First and foremost, I married for love. I can't believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show!"
"I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon," Kardashian admitted. "I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have."
Kardashian also said she "got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and didn't want to disappoint a lot of people."
The reality star filed for divorce on October 31 at a Los Angeles court. The couple's date of separation is also listed as October 31. The 31-year-old cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. This was Kardashian's second marriage. She and Humphries, 26, have no children.
Kardashian and Humphries, a basketball player, began dating in late 2010 and announced their engagement in May. The reality star was previously married to music producer Damon Thomas. The two wed in 2000, when she was 19 years old, and divorced in 2004.
The wedding of Kardashian and Humphries took place on August 20 under tight security at a $20 million estate near Santa Barbara. More than 500 people, including celebrities, attended the highly-publicized event.
The wedding was filmed for the E! special "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event," which aired earlier this month.
Though some reports claim that Kardashian and Humphries profited millions off their wedding, Kardashian wrote in her post, "These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this."
She added, "I'm so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I'll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation."
