Kim Kardashian Divorce: Star Flies to Minnesota to See Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian has reportedly left for Minnesota last night to visit her soon-to-be-ex husband, Kris Humphries, according to TMZ.
The celebrity gossip site caught up to Kim when she landed at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport around 5:30 a.m. local time. TMZ says they were told the reality star traveled on a commercial flight at night, perhaps to avoid the spotlight of the media.
As to whether or not this could be a reconciliation between the power couple, it remains to be seen.
Kardashian and Minnesota basketball player Kris Humphries were married for only a fleeting 72 days before the actress filed for divorce, shocking Humphries and her fans.
Controversy has surrounded the brief marriage, with rumors calling the nuptials a sham, an easy way to make money, or even a publicity stunt. The couple was rumored to collect nearly $18 million from it, selling photo rights to People magazine and making a reality show based on the event.
Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian’s mother, denies the gossip, claiming that Kim actually lost money on the extravagant wedding.
David Caplan, a former editor for People and Star magazines, doubts that Kim’s fans will desert her over the controversy.
“I think to a certain degree, overall, she's actually still in the good graces of her fans, and I say that because her fans are so… the tenor and the vibe has been a lot of sympathy towards her because she's sort of saying, 'I made a mistake, I rushed into it,' " Caplan told MTV. "And that's saving her from all of this."
