Kim Kardashian to Fans: I Married For Love!

Kim Kardashian took to her website to speak out against all of the negative press surrounding her divorce filing. She released an initial statement via E! News. Kim recently arrived in Australia as she deals with the situation outside of the magnifying glass of Hollywood.

“This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I see all of the support and I am so thankful for my fans, friends and family who are helping me through this difficult time.

Read the rest of Kim‘s statement inside!

WHAT DO YOU THINK about Kim’s statement of marrying for love?

I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show! I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it’s who I am! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!

Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.

I’m being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn’t easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.”

There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. I’m so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation.

I’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart. I believe now that I really am.”

    bitchplease >_>

  • Celion

    Whatever…She loves the attention. I think people need to quit watching her show. I mean heck 18-20 million on a wedding when people aren’t working.

  • mekauai

    Kim married for money and more publicity. She is a media whore. A disgusting media sl*t.

  • Lissett

    “the magnifying glass of Hollywood”… She’s a porn star turned reality tv star… She signed up for us to criticize her. And too late, it’s the beginning of the end muahahahahaha

  • Anon

    WTF EVER! Ugh, I wish the media would stop reporting what this idiot says…. I guess that means I should stop commenting too :)! Sorry, couldn’t help it!

  • Big Asz Ho Panties

    blah blah blah

  • Barbara

    Is she going to ask for privacy at this difficult time? lol

  • WOW!!

    Lisette, good point. Mekaui, you are right. Celion, you said the truth. So In Love, you are so right about that clue of many clues .
    BUT none of said like LOL, YAAAS Honey,
    “Bi tch Please!”

    I have nothing to add because you all said it and I would just be reposting what you all said.

  • mekauai

    @Barbara: too funny! love it!

  • H.

    I understand people who choose to ignore the Kardashians and their brand but she really doesn’t deserve so much anger and hate towards her, she’s not Hitler. After reading her statement, you can see her heart was in the right place.

  • Kirsten

    She and Kris had many problems prior to the wedding. She just got married for the dress, attention and gifts. That’s a shame that the millions of dollars that went to her wedding could have gone to a good cause.

  • Ben

    I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn’t know how to and didn’t want to disappoint a lot of people.

    At least she’s honest.

  • Manny

    She married for the love of M O N E Y. She made almost $18 million selling her wedding to the press. Major fameho!

  • bobbyweiner

    I Married For Money Love

  • @ H.

    I don’t think her heart was in the right place, because she doesn’t appear to have a heart. She used that guy, pure and simple. I don’t think that family demonstrates anything but greed, lack of dignity, and lack of class. They will sell out any private moment for a buck, and are already working on selling the youngest ones. They are sickening.

  • vic

    @Kirsten: She is donating the money for all the gifts to charity.


    there was a scene in an episode of their show where Kim was going to kiss Kris and he just burped into her face. I knew their relationship had to be fake.
    you can tell when two people are in love. most of the relationships in hollywood are not real.

  • So&So

    The really incredulous part of all this is that Kim thinks if she keeps sayin these asinine things…people will actually believe it.

    Folks wouldn’t dislike her or her famewhoring family soooo much if they just kept it real…they’re in it to make as much money as possible. Dignity and Integrity be damned.

  • RJ

    Yeah, love of money

  • orlando

    i love you
    marry me instead

  • Lisa

    Please: you obviously didnt write this yourself … You’re not capable of writing of this caliber. Seconndly, you’re a media whore – everything you do is for attention… Including getting your nails done 4 times a week two doors down from my store. You just ruined krises life with your greediness! You’re mother is even worse pretending to be an innocent by stander in all of this! You guys just love attention… Everything about you is fake… ESP the ass!

  • Baltimore

    We all make mistakes , and i’m not holding anything against them because it’s their lifes ! I don’t know wether she made 18 millions or not but is it really bad if she did ? I mean the society of today is just pushing us to go to school , marry someone , work 9 to 5 , give us a little retiring money and then we die ! What’s the problem of taking easy money that you’re okay with , she not the mafia ! It’s clean money .

  • Elno

    I have more hate for her mother.

  • Lil

    Eh, I see marriage as a very important thing that should last a little longer than 72 days and when you hit a bump in the road, you WORK IT OUT instead of running to the divorce lawyer to solve all your problems.

  • Casey

    She doesn’t give a crap
    how she does it
    but she’s GETTING
    her attention fix one way or another.

  • mekauai

    @vic: That’s an attempt at image control and brand control. Don’t believe the hype. She is purportedly donating 200K to a charity, which she will get a tax ride off from anyway and by the way, she of course made millions of the whole sham and her wedding gifts surpassed that amount manifolds.

  • Verity

    @Ben: So she had time to agree to pose for People Magazine, she had time to do product placement, she had time to pose for countless product and promotional pictures all in relation to her wedding but she had NO TIME to call this thing quits?? BS!

  • Give It A Rest

    Kim, the gig is up!! It was, is and will always be about you, yourself, you and oh yeah the money! As Nini from Atl Housewives might say “stop with your crocomodile tears and take it, you created this so therefore take it like the fake a$s girl you are!”

  • K A Z simply

    Just For love ?

  • Kev

    I smell a bulls**t

  • mekauai

    @Verity: She had time to release statements through her reps, but she had not time to tell her own husband she was filing for divorce. He learned that news through news media (tmz, to name one….)

  • Kev

    I smell bulls**

  • Sun

    sounds like some random PR intern wrote the text. HA HA

  • roxanne


    your so right, its dumb that people r giving u a thumbs down when u said nothing rude or hurtful. sometimes people make big mistakes in the heat of the moment, granted they arent 20 million dollar mistakes, but she is just a person. stop acting like she is doing such a disfavour to the world. if u dont like her dont read about her.

  • Aisha

    People make mistakes. I believe she did the right thing if she felt it wasn’t right. She shouldn’t have to explain herself to anyone. I’m a proud Kim K fan!!!

  • chris

    you didnt let her finish….she meant that she married for love of money

  • Gerta

    Hitler wouldn’t have had her . She’s wifty, greedy, and has no class.

  • Creed

    Liar. You dont passionately marry someone and fall out of love and divorce them after 72 days.
    I believe she married for love. Love of Fame and Attention.

  • gglover128

    Gosh why is she trying to convince people so much this is the second statement shes made so far. She such a fame whore why is she so concerned with what others think. Well I shouldn’t expect any less by someone who rose to fame with a sex tape

  • Question

    Those who claim to be a fan of this person, I like to know what are you a fan of?? I mean what is it about her that you are a fan of?? She has no talent other than how to turn a dime by being a walking billboard for who ever will pay her and nothing more.

  • MinnesotaRocks

    And the fifteen minutes of fame is finally up.

    But to play devil’s advocate, who’s the real sucker here? The same people dogging her out right now, tuned in on the edge of their seats to watch the wedding. You watched it. YOU! Yes YOU! So you helped pull off this charade, too! There are no victims here, except for maybe the Humphries clan and the state of Minnesota who has gotten a bad rap through all of this.

  • Love the shoes

    Yeah, your mother’s love of money! You got pimped Kim just like Kris pimps all her brood.

  • RoseGarden

    I confeess…I watched;)

  • karen


  • reverina

    Lovely couple…cough cough

  • whitesheetofpaper


  • Maria



    Oh, please, she needs to get over herself. She was still into Reggie and used this poor guy and than shoved it. She is really pathetic and Karma is a B….tch. I feel so sorry for him and I hope his family and friends start speaking out. So very sad for him.

  • Dl

    It’s all about her. She posed on the cover of people magazine all by herself. How many celebrity marriage photos have you’ve seen where the bride is only shown on the cover. Nada
