Kim Kardashian Filing for Divorce *Updated*

Well this has to be a record of sorts. Kim Kardashian will file for divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries this morning, after being married for only 72 days, according to TMZ.  The two were married on August 20,2011.

Ryan Seacrest confirmed the divorce via twitter (yes, seriously…he said it on twitter), “Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins.”

The reality star cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce, and  has retained celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser, who has handled many, many, many high profile divorces.

Now, we can’t really say we’re surprised, the internet has been buzzing with rumors of divorce since the couple came back from their honeymoon, following their multimillion dollar wedding.

This is the first marriage for Humphries, 26, and the second  for the Kardashian, 30, who married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000. The couple divorced in 2004. That’s a lot longer than 72 days.

Update: Kim has released the following statement to E!:

“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.“
