Kim Kardashian Divorce Apology

Kim Kardashian may have put the brakes on her marriage, but she still wants a happily ever after! Kim apologizes to her fans, writing she is a hopeless romantic who was caught up in the moment.

Kim Kardashian’s fantasy wedding may not have panned out like she hoped, but the reality starlet says she isn’t giving up on her dream to one day be a mother and doting wife. In a heartfelt written apology to her fans Nov. 1, she said the sole driving force behind her decision to get married was love, but by the time she realized her relationship wasn’t what she wanted, she felt like there were too many people to let down.

“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,” Kim wrote on her blog.

For a girl who has built her career around making her private like public, planning intimate events and cultivating relationships must be difficult beyond reason. Kim admits exchanging vows with Kris Humphries wasn’t the smartest decision, but that her divorce had nothing to do with her feelings being insincere.

Kim’s apology seems sincere, and we’re glad that she can shed some light on her unfortunate situation. It takes a big person to admit they made a mistake, especially one that is so public. We can imagine it was easy for her to get swept up in planning such an extravagant wedding and can understand how the pressures from  the network, businesses involved, and people she loved made it hard for her to pump the brakes when she realized she was making a mistake. She also admitted what we reported earlier that she didn’t make the millions of dollars from the wedding special.

A Message To My Fans
“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.

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.”
