Before we could even finish saying Mrs. Kim Kardashian – Humphries, it was over. The reality star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from her husband of only 72 days basketball player Kris Humphries on Monday.  The union ranks in at Number 9 on the shortest celebrities marriages list. On the list the newlyweds follow Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Rick Solomon, who were divorced after only 60 days. It is only 18 days shorter than the marriage between singer R-Kelly and Aaliyah which lasted 90 days.

The rumour mill has been on overdrive concerning the wedding between Kim and Kris. Apparently Kris was cast through auditions as Kim Kardashian’s husband for the reality show Keeping up with Kardashians. Some have said that the marriage was nothing more than a business transaction between the two. For the wedding the couple made a whooping R140 million ($18 million) by selling exclusive rights of the wedding to People Magazine and E! Entertainment channel. Which means they made R1.9 million ($250 OOO) for each day they were married.

Kim is seeking a traditional divorce due to "irreconcilable differences." Luckily though, former Mrs. Kardashian –Humphries won’t be losing any of her treasured millions thanks to a prenupt she signed before the wedding.
