Kim Kardashian emerged at LAX on Monday evening, arriving for a flight to Australia at the end of a very dramatic day for the reality TV star. Kim announced her divorce from Kris Humphries earlier in the day, and this is her first public appearance since the news broke. Kim and Kris's split comes after only 72 days of marriage. Kim and Kris tied the knot with an over-the-top televised wedding at the end of August and were together less than a year before their walk down the aisle. Kim was not wearing her wedding ring or enormous diamond engagement band as she headed Down Under.
While she may be heading out of town, Kim was out on the red carpet to celebrate Halloween in a sexy Poison Ivy costume over the weekend, and on Sunday she joined her sisters Kourtney and Khloe on stage at Jimmy Kimmel. Even though she has not been spending much time with her new husband, Kim's filing for divorce this morning was still a shock for many fans who tuned in to watch the big Kim Kardashian wedding special just a few weeks ago. We took a look back at Kim and Kris's whirlwind romance to reflect on the news, which seemed like it was even a surprise for the recent groom. Kris Humphries's statement about the divorce made it sound like he didn't know it was coming, though many of you aren't buying that. We're sure to hear a lot more as this plays out over the next few weeks and, of course, on the Kardashian's many reality TV shows.
