We’ve hit the news (I think):
Free Press of America – Nov 1, 2011 – A “close friend” has disclosed a key reason for Kim Kardashian filing for divorce a mere 72 days after she was married to basketballer Kris Humphries.
“It was the Goliath thing,” said Kardashian’s close friend, Miss M. “Apparently some website shows that Kris Humphries is like the exact height of Goliath, in the Bible. And Kim is like exactly the height of a Philistine woman.”
“We all treated it as a bit of a joke. But Kim read it and she went kind of nuts. There was a huge fight between her and [Kris], and the next thing you know she was at her lawyers’ office.”
“I don’t know why she has taken it so seriously. It’s not as though Kris isn’t circumcised or anything.”
Kardashian today released a statement confirming the divorce.
“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.”
Sister Khloe Kardashian released a statement on Twitter.
“Reading some these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything,” she wrote.
“Thank God for family. We are strong and we will only become closer! I love YOU”
Rumours of trouble in their marriage have been publicised for some time.
