It seems the wedded fairytale is already over for Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. After just 72 days of marriage, Kim has filed for divorce from the NBA star citing irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the split.

"After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage," she said in a statement. "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."

The couple announced their engagement in May after a six month whirlwind romance. They then tied the knot on August 20 in a lavish ceremony which included many celebrity guests such as Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria, Ryan Seacrest, Serena Williams, and Mel B.

The $10 million wedding reportedly netted a huge $18 million, with a huge chunk of that money believed to have come from the TV rights thanks to an exclusive deal with E!. The divorce comes just weeks after the premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians: Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event - a two-night special that reportedly drew an average of 4 million viewers in the US.

It is the second marriage for Kim, who wed music producer Damon Thomas in 2000. The couple divorced in 2004.
