Kim Kardashian wastes no time, will divorce Kris Humphries

Kim Kardashian files for divorce from Kris Humphries

This post has been corrected, as detailed below. Kim Kardashian divorce is true.

Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries on Monday morning, citing "irreconcilable differences" after only 72 days of what appears to be a waste of a perfectly good wedding.

Maybe they should have gone on a better honeymoon?

Kardashian was spotted out in New York on Saturday night, Halloween partying at Lavo as the sexy yet villainous Poison Ivy character of Batman-comics fame -- notably sans Humphries. The elegantly brief divorce papers (obtained by TMZ) were filed Monday morning in Los Angeles, listing high-profile divorce lawyer Laura Wasser as Kimmy's attorney. Yes, Virginia, there was a prenup.

Kardashian's rep did not immediately respond to a Ministry request Monday for confirmation and comment.

With unnamed sources saying last week that Humphries was "not drinking the Kardashian Kool-Aid," Rob Kardashian took it upon himself to defend his sister's happiness (though not necessarily the strength of her marriage). The dealbreaker, according to TMZ, may have been geographic incompatibility. She wanted to stay "in town" for her career, he was looking forward to settling down in his home state of Minnesota. Funny how most folks work that out before the $10-million wedding?

Humphries and Kardashian briefly honeymooned for paparazzi on Italy's Amalfi Coast, then moved into a three-bedroom suite with sis Kourtney, her boyfriend Scott Disick and their 22-month-old son to film the second season of "Kim &  Kourtney Take New York."

"We have to find our home base," Kardashian told People at her 31st birthday celebration in Las Vegas, just a week ago Saturday.

So, yeah, take that off the to-do list -- along with the kissing and hand-holding and hanging with the in-laws that she and Humphries were doing in the VIP area at the Cosmopolitan nightclub that night.

Here at the Ministry, we like to think it's all part of a carefully designed career arc in which Kim sets herself up as the next Zsa Zsa Gabor, who is essentially famous for being famous, and has been married nine times, with seven divorces and one annulment, winding up with Prince Frederick von Anhalt, for better or worse.

After divorcing music producer Damon Thomas after four years and prepping to split from Humphries, she's off to a rolling start. Zsa Zsa never had a Twitter trend like this one: "#ThingsLongerThanKimsMarriage."

For those keeping score, the two started dating last December and were engaged by May. They married on Aug. 20 in Montecito. With California's 60-day minimum to get a simple divorce finalized, this could theoretically be wrapped up in time for the newlyweds to have completely new dates for New Year's Eve.

[For the record, 12:39 p.m. Oct. 31: This post originally had Kim and Kris married for 42 days, not 72. Blame our fat fingers?]
