It seems everyone in the world has had something to say about Kim Kardashian‘s divorce — except for Kim Kardashian. That was true until Tuesday night, when the reality TV personality posted an open letter to her fans on her personal blog. In it she explains that she didn’t divorce basketball player Kris Humphries, her husband of just 72 days, because her marriage was a sham. She says she just married the wrong guy.
In the letter, Kardashian writes that when she got engaged to Humphries she was legitimately in love with him, but somewhere along the line she realized that he wasn’t exactly the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. Kardashian chalks it all up to being a “hopeless romantic” who believes in love. She writes:
“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.”
Kardashian goes on to say that reports suggesting she made millions of dollars on the wedding are “simply not true,” and that she will be donating the gift money she received to the Dream Foundation.
If Kardashian had any words for Kris Humphries, who seemed a bit blindsided that Kardashian had filed for divorce earlier this week, they’re not in the letter to her fans. Take a look at the full letter here and tell us if you think Kardashian is being sincere.
