Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from Kris Humphries, her husband of less than three months. The news comes after their fairy-tale wedding was broadcasted by E!, the network that airs Keeping Up with the Kardashians and its spin-off shows.

Kardashian, 30, has hired celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser and will cite “irreconcilable differences,” TMZ reports. The separation date will be listed as Oct. 31, 2011.

The divorce is a surprise mostly because of its speed; the couple got engaged after only six months of dating, and Kardashian had recently described her marriage as “not ideal.” This was Kardashian’s second marriage, and the first for basketball player Humphries, 26.
