Kim Kardashian Divorce: Star Issues Apology For Short-Lived Marriage

Kim Kardashian has issued an official apology regarding her marriage, which lasted only 72 days, and said she never meant to hurt anyone.

The star expressed her sorrow about the wedding through a message to her fans on her website Tuesday.

In the statement Kardashian said she "married for love" and "would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show," although she admits to getting "caught up" in all the attention surrounding the show.

The star takes "full responsibility" for her actions and said the wedding was never the fairy tale she "had so badly hoped for."

"When I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and I didn't want to disappoint a lot of people," she wrote. "I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed into something too soon."

The pair dated for nine months before marrying in August, with a televised two-hour ceremony special on E!

Kardashian goes on to say the rumors of her making millions off the wedding are not true, and the comments have saddened her. However, she said she planned on donating whatever money she received in gifts to the Dream Foundation.

TMZ reported yesterday that the star was struggling over making the decision to divorce. They also reported she spent the entire week crying before she filed the documents, changing her mind several times because she wasn't 100 percent sure the marriage couldn't be salvaged.

One of Kardashian's friends told the gossip site she finalized the decision after learning Humphries hired a Hollywood publicist to work on his image, angrily saying, "He's not in (expletive) Hollywood. He plays sports."

The basketball player told reporters he was willing to do whatever it takes to repair his broken marriage. "I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents," he said.

He continued, "I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce...I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."

Friend's of the reality star told TMZ they thought Humphries was lying when he said all he wanted was a nice life with her in Minnesota, and that now the marriage is over he's "chasing fame."

They say she was put off by his persistence to keep their connection going even if they divorced. Humphries wanted to brand his name, and try to get deals for cologne, nightclub appearances, and other merchandise.

The divorce was made official yesterday with TMZ breaking the story. One of the main reasons for the split was that Humphries wanted to live in Minnesota with his wife.

Kardashian did not want to leave Hollywood because of her career, spelling the end of their marriage.
