Reality star beauty Kim Kardashian, shocked fans and critics after announcing she was to divorce her NBA player husband after only 72 days.
Only 10 days after ‘Kim’s Fairytale Wedding’ aired in the UK, Kim, 31, filed for divorce from Kris Humphries and the twitter world went into over drive.
There have been rumours that the marriage was for the television, and that millions of dollars have been made as a result of this ceremony. However, Kim told fans on her website: “These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this.”
Whether or not money was made from the wedding however is not the only question being asked. It seems that both fans and celebrities have sparked outrage at the attitude shown towards marriage; isn’t marriage a holy sanctity and a lifelong commitment?
Celebrity blogger and friend of the Kardashians, Perez Hilton expressed his concern, criticising the approach of marital laws. He tweeted: “I love Kim Kardashian, but as a gay man in America who is treated as a second class citizen when it comes to civil marriage, I am offended!” He then followed this tweet saying “Straight people do a damn well good job themselves of ruining the sanctity of marriage! #MarriageForALL.”
Another American reality star, Jennifer ‘Jwoww’ Farley, who shot to fame on MTV’s Jersey Shore, expressed her opinion. She tweeted: “My best friend Joey and his man have been together 6 years and can’t get married but… Well you know where I’m going with this.” This ironic statement was left just hours after the divorce was announced.
Whether you are a fan of the star or not, it cannot be argued that 72 days is shorter than anybody had anticipated for Kim Kardashian’s happily ever after, she claims the marriage “just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.”
So, who will be the next man in her life? Only time will tell. All we do know is thousand s of eligible bachelors have been given a glimpse of hope as to who will be Kim’s next Prince Charming.
