The socialite filed for divorce on Monday (31Oct11), just two days after she attended a Halloween party in New York without her husband Kris Humphries, who she wed in August (11).
A statement from Kardashian reads, ""After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.""
Her lavish nuptials, costing an estimated $10 million (£6.25 million), were captured on camera for an E! TV special, which debuted in America in October (11).
Kardashian is citing ""irreconcilable differences"" for the split, and she has hired top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to represent her in court, according to TMZ.com.
According to the divorce documents, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday morning (31Oct11), the couple's prenuptial agreement will come into effect. Additionally, Kardashian has listed ""miscellaneous jewelry and other personal effects"" as well as ""earrings and accumulations"" amassed by Kim before, during and after her marriage be confirmed as separate property, according to EOnline.com.
The marriage is Kardashian's second - she wed producer Damon Thomas in 2000. The couple divorced in 2004.
