Kim Kardashian to divorce Kris

Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from NBA player Kris Humphries - just 10 weeks after her star-studded, made-for-TV wedding, citing irreconcilable differences.

"I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision," said the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star in a statement. "I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned."

The filing in Los Angeles County Superior Court provided few details, other than to state the couple have a prenuptial agreement that will dictate how they divide up their assets.

Kim is asking that both sides pay their own legal costs and that a judge terminate Kris' rights to spousal support.

Kardashian, 31, and Humphries, 26, were wed on August 20 at a lavish private estate near Santa Barbara, California.

It was the first marriage for Kris, who last played for the NBA's New Jersey Nets, and the second for Kim, who was married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2004.

Kim's sisters and TV co-stars Kourtney Kardashian, 32, and Khloe Kardashian, 27, served as co-maids of honour.

Kim and Kris began dating late last year and announced their engagement in May. He proposed on bended knee with a 20.5-carat ring by spelling out "Will you marry me?" in rose petals.

The couple's marriage was the subject of a two-part special on E! Entertainment Television, which televises Kardashian's show that follows the model and her family.

Court filings show that Kim signed the petition on Sunday. The reality starlet said she and Humphries "remain friends and wish each other the best".
