London, Oct 31: US TV reality star Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries, TMZ reported.
The 31-year-old reality star has been married for just 72 days after saying 'I do' to the 26-year-old NBA star on August 20 in Montecito, California.
TMZ reports the TV personality will be seeking a divorce on the grounds of 'irreconcilable differences'.
Ryan Seacrest, the producer of her E! reality show, just tweeted: 'Yes @KimKardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins.'
The date of separation is listed as today (October 31), according to the website.
She has hired top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who has dealt with the likes of Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie and Ryan Reynolds.
MailOnline reported earlier this month how Kim and Kris's marriage had hit the rocks.
A source close to the couple told us: 'I don't know when they'll announce the split or why they got married in the first place but they are done.'
'They are divorcing. Kim has been staying in a New York hotel which Kris has failed to visit.'
The couple have been dogged by persistent reports that all is not well between them for several weeks now.
Earlier this month Star magazine claimed Humphries has been spotted partying in both Miami and New York without Kim, getting flirty with multiple women and 'acting like a single man.'
U.S. magazine Life & Style alleges that on a recent trip to Toronto, Humphries contacted his ex-girlfriend, Bianka Kamber.
The magazine also spoke to a Kourtney & Kim Take New York producer who said: 'Kim's mapping out 2012, including holidays, and Kris isn't a part of it. Any itineraries for the future don't include Kris very much.'
Kim ensured they both signed a prenuptial agreement before the marriage.
Over the weekend Kim attended a Halloween party in New York - but tellingly had not brought Kris along.
She instead made a red carpet appearance with her PR friend Jonathan Cheban at the Midori Green event.
