Reality television star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce Monday from Kris Humphries, the basketball player she married less than three months ago.
“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” she said in a statement published on E! Online, the website of the cable television network behind “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
Kardashian, 31, became a household name in 2007 thanks to a sex tape with her then boyfriend and the ongoing “Keeping Up” series which tracks the psychodramas of her affluent Los Angeles family.
Married and divorced once before, the diminutive celebrity wedded towering New Jersey Nets power forward Humphries, 26, on August 20 after he reportedly gave her an engagement ring worth $2 million.
Court documents gave Monday as the date of separation, and “irreconcilable differences” as the basis of the divorce application.
