Kim Kardashian Insists: "I Married For Love"
In a blog to her fans, Kim slams reports her 72-day marriage was a sham...
Earlier this week, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star confirmed she was divorcing Humphries after just 72 days of marriage, saying in a statement that it was not "an easy decision."
Kimmy has since faced criticism regarding her short marriage, with some sources suggesting that her relationship with the basketball ace was a sham and just for the cameras.
The 31-year old has now posted a message on her official website addressed to her fans, claiming that she never meant to hurt anyone by ending her marriage to Kris, admitting that she "got caught up with the hoopla" of filming her TV show.
Kardashian wrote: "This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I see all of the support and I am so thankful for my fans, friends and family who are helping me through this difficult time."
"I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show!"
She continued: "I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am!"
"We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!"
The former Playboy model went on to explain: "Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon."
"I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people."
She added: "I’m being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn’t easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for."
Addressing rumours that she made $18million off the back of her nuptials to Kris, the star explained: "There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this."
"I’m so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation. I’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart and I believe now that I really am."
Kardashian's mother, Kris Jenner, has since defended her daughter's choice to end her marriage, stating that she's "had to make a very difficult, grown-up decision", adding that Kimmy "never made a dime" from her wedding.
