Well, it seemed like only a matter of time and recent signs pointed to the eventual split but today it was confirmed that Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from her NBA player husband Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage.

"Yes@kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning.  I touched base with her," confirms E! News host Ryan Seacrest, who is the producer for the buxom reality star's show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," according to the New York Daily News.

The reality star is calling it quits with the New Jersey Nets forward after a brief marriage and $10 million wedding.

According to TMZ, the couple will not seek an annulment and cite "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the breakup.

The split is not too surprising since the couples marriage was publicly on the rocks.  The couple was spotted together arguing or not together at all.  Tabloids are reporting that the two were "not getting along at all" and were getting into loud arguments over financial issues and Humphries' frequent partying.

Kardashian, 30, was last seen alone at a Halloween party dressed as Batman's Poison Ivy in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

"It's always tough when you're apart.  But we do what we can to try and spend time together and make time for each other," Kardashian told US magazine.

Humphries and Kardashian signed a pre-nup agreement before their opulent wedding this summer.

Maybe the NBA lock-out had a lot to do with Humphries having too much free time on his hands and hanging around with that whole Kardashian clan can't be much fun either.

It's too bad— because now— Kardashian won't get to hang out with Nets minority-owner Jay-Z and Beyonce at the new Barclays Center when the team move to Brooklyn from Newark next year.
