Kim K’s Wedding: Was It About Love Or Money?

As the whole world has heard by now, Kim Kardashian is getting divorced…after a mere 72 days. So what exactly happened? Well it depends… Do you believe the marriage was for real? Or a sham? If you think it was for real, meaning for love, then of course you feel bad for her. But if you think it was fake and that it all may have been over money…$17.9 million dollars to be exact, then well, you may not be as shocked and actually be a tad angry. 

So lets focus on her story first. Kim K falls in love with Kris Humphries, 6 months he proposes with what will probably be remembered as one of the biggest ring in celebrity history. Humphries designed the ring with famed jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. Kim said it was the most beautiful thing she has ever seen. The ring set in platinum has a center diamond, emerald cut, that weighs in at 16.5-carats, it is then adjoined by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids which brings the grand total to 20.5-carats…unreal…They then get married in a lavish wedding that is shown on TV to huge ratings. 72 day later, she files for divorce.

Kim says she was in love but then realized that she was not ready for marriage, but did not know how to go about stopping the snowballing events and planning and disappointing so many people. She blogged:

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! 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 Divorce Papers

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.

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.

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.”

So there you go, she is now following her heart and also will not be returning the ring...What about that stunning wedding band?! So now lets talk about the money. Let’s say you don’t believe it was about love? Kim K made $17.9 million dollars off the wedding, there is no denying it, everyone covered it, and she is now pretty much lying. NY Times reporter Don Van Natta Jr. breaks down the numbers..and its jaw dropping:

Mama K is claiming that the brood did not make any money from the wedding…hmm..this is just getting crazier and crazier by the second huh? So what does Kris Humphries say? Well, aside from the fact that he claims to be shocked, a source close to him speaks out:

“He’s getting through it day by day. It’s a tough situation. It’s not an easy position for anyone. He’s a gentleman and wants to make things right – the ring and any gift he gave her was out of love and he doesn’t expect them back. He has made concerted efforts to try and return the gifts to their guests. They’re figuring it all out.”


As of now Kardashian has cut short her tour in Australia promoting her new bags (which are just cheaper versions of all the current “it” bags).  So what happens now? Well the reality star is saying shes heartbroken but rumors are spewing all over the net that she is already trying to get with her ex, Reggie Bush, which was supposedly not fake.

Kim K is completely and utterly fake, everything about her is fake, and what makes it all so disturbing is that there are so many gay couples who are denied the right to marry, and yet here is this reality star who is making a total mockery of the whole institution of marriage.

There are more and more tidbits being released so we will be following the story closely, but all I can say right now…? This whole family is obsessed with fame.
