Kim Kardashian - statement on marriage breakdown

Have you read the statement just released by Kim Kardashian surrounding her marriage breakdown?

Here it is:

"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!

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."

What do you think?

The buzz for the past 24 hours (for some, right from the word 'go') has been that the whole thing - the courtship, the wedding, the whole shebang - was a sham?



  1. In the world of the TV star - does anyone really ever know the truth, except those involved? NO wonder everyone is speculating! The only reason I've been shouting "PR stunt! PR stunt!" from the top of my lungs is because if she 'married for love' as she is saying, then why give up after 72 days? Love has got to be stronger than that. Surely it takes another 72 days (times two, even) to work on a marriage, unless Kris has turned into some monster or she found out he has some love child or something else shocking like that. If she wants people to believe her, she needs to be more specific than what she's been giving everyone.

  2. I totally think it was a PR stunt.. Jewellery industry professionals have been saying they never payed for the ring since she received it. The talk is that she was given a kick back from the diamond industry to help boost falling diamnd sales & it worked. Diamond sales in the high end of the market increased by 3% globally directly after KK received her ring. I'm certain the kick backs didn't end there either....this is not a stupid girl, but a woman who has made a fortune out of making something out of nothing!
