Apparently Kris Humphries is the only person who thought his made-for-E! romance with Kim Kardashian would last forever. Kris and Kim had discussed divorce, but he didn't know she was actually filing papers until this morning. Now he's telling his friends that he doesn't believe in divorce for religious reasons. His emotional status has been downgraded to "bummed," as that is the only way jocks can express sadness. [TMZ]
Kris told TMZ, "I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents ... I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce ... I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work." [TMZ]
Kim released this statement via E!: "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." If she really gave this "careful consideration" she must have started thinking about divorce before the wedding. [E!]
