Kim Kardashian said she never meant to hurt anyone by ending her marriage after just 72 days.

The 31-year-old reality star posted a message to her fans on her website, one day after filing for divorce from Kris Humphries, whom she married in a lavish ceremony that aired as a two-hour TV special on E!

Kim said that while she "married for love" and "would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show", she admits that she "got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show".

"When I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and I didn't want to disappoint a lot of people," she wrote.

Kim said she took "full responsibility for my actions and decisions", adding: "It just didn't turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for."

Kim and Kris dated for nine months before marrying in August.

Kim's mum Kris Jenner meanwhile denied her daughter's short marriage was a money-making publicity stunt. She told US radios show Johnjay And Rich that it was wrong to suggest her daughter "made millions" from the nuptials.

"She didn't make a dime off of this wedding. She actually spent millions of dollars on this wedding, so it's not something that she thought would ever not be happily ever after," she said.

Meanwhile, the E! television network said any insinuation that it orchestrated Kim's lavish wedding "is completely false".

E! said in a statement that "the Kardashians have authentically lived their lives on camera for a long time and Kim's wedding is one of the many real-life events that the family has shared with viewers."

If you're looking for work, you could find it at a government agency, university or hospital. Being employed by a big bureaucracy will have unexpected benefits.More
