It was the wedding that apparently raked in $18 million for Kim Kardashian who recently appeared in weekend magazines in stories titled ‘My life as a brand’. And a wedding is the ultimate ‘plot’ point in the career of someone who does reality TV for a living.
Or so the cynics say. Perhaps Kim Kardashian’s wedding to NBA star Kris Humphries was the real deal. And perhaps it really did all fall apart in 72-days (which, believe it or not, isn’t the shortest celeb wedding on record).
As news of the impending divorce broke (Kim is filing, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’) her sisters hopped on to Twitter to get their support out there.
“Reading some these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything.” That was Khloe. She added: “We are strong and we will only become closer. I love YOU.”
Kourtney followed up :”Our sister is going through a difficult time but we’re a close family and are sticking together like always.” “We appreciate everyone’s kindness and support. @KimKardashian, we love you.”
Kim married Kris in a glitzy ceremony in August.
In a statement, she said:
“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. 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.”
Kris, on the other hand, appeared to be taken by surprise.
