Kim Kardashian: Kris Humphries 'Bored' Me, Plus Other Reasons Why She Dumped Him

Kim Kardashian Divorce Reason

Kim Kardashian shocked the world when she left Kris after 72 days of marriage. And for the first time, Kim reveals what lead her to leave so soon. Read on for more details!

Oprah didn’t hesitate to grill Kim Kardashian about the demise of her marriage with Kris Humphries.

“I think it would have to be really, really bad to end in 72 days,” Oprah said in her June 17th interview.

It came as a shock to many when Kim filed for divorce from Kris Humphries in October 2011 — just 72 days after they said “I do.” And according to Kim, it was the “little things” that quickly made her realize that he wasn’t “the one.”

“I think, obviously, when people first meet and fall in love everything is great in the beginning. For me, I didn’t spend more than a full week with my ex [Kris] before we got married. We never lived together. So once we moved in together and I saw how our relationship was. And I started to see things that I wasn’t aware of before,” Kim told Oprah on . “It could be small things or little things. You know when you just have that feeling that he’s the one. When we moved in together I just had that feeling that he’s not that one.”

“Can you tell us this? Was there something drastically terrible that happened?” Oprah asked.

“No. No,” Kim replied. “He’s a good person and I will always have a place in my heart for him. It just wasn’t for me,” Kim said.

“Were you, the worst word ever, ‘bored’?” Oprah said.

“Yeah, but I wouldn’t leave someone because I’m bored. We could find something to do. It’s just the whole in your heart you feel it,” Kim says.

Hmm! It still seems pretty rude of Kim to admit on national TV that she was “bored” with Kris in less than a year.

Kim Kardashian Reveals Why Her 72-Day Marriage Ended

In October 2011, more than 8 million people tuned in to E! to watch Kim Kardashian marry NBA player Kris Humphries. Then, just 72 days later, Kim filed for divorce. For what she says is the last time, Kim responds to those who say her marriage was nothing more than a publicity stunt. Plus, Kim speaks candidly about what went wrong, why Kris wasn’t the one and why she’d rather be beaten up by the media than live an unhappy life.

When I saw the show “kourtney and kim take new work” and I saw Kris and Kim together I was like- WOW! You know, their cute and all, but when they lived together? And the small comments that Kris said? I was like “why did you marry him?” like seriously! He’s probably a sweet man but i didn’t think he was the man for Kim.

They were together less than a year before they got married and she never knew he was boring all that time.
A woman knows if a man is too boring for her by the first or second date. The attention whore is lying again. She had no intentions on staying with Kris after the wedding was over. E gave her her fairy tale wedding, she got all the gifts and attention and she was done with the marriage thing. Boring had nothing to do with it.

You have to remember that it is when a couple move in together it is then the “truth” comes out. They hadn’t lived together permanently before, they were arguing over where to live, he didn’t listen to her much, he seemed bored as well.

It is when you start living together when you really, really get to know your boyfirend, or in this case husband. And when Kim realized that he was not the one for her she had to get out because she didn’t see a future where it would get better.
She is a little attention freak but, she seems genuin.

10 mil will provide incentive but after it is gone then boredom sets in. Knew it was going to fail when she didn’t want to change her name. Khloe became KKO, Kimmy could have been KKH. But that’s from a family that makes it on selling sex from age 14.

Kris J ruin her daughters life

Posted at 7:46 PM on June 19, 2012  

Kris J did not plan for Kim to stay married to Kris long. Kim was all for changing her name at first. She wore a belt with the letter H and got Kris H all excited about changing her name to Humphries. Kim was bragging to her friends about changing her name when Kris J freaked out and told her that she should not change her name. Kris J then made fun of Humphries’s name and convinced Kim not to change her name. Kim does not have a mind of her own, she listen to whatever Mama J tells her to do even if it is scrap. She then got into an argument with Kris H about not changing her name. You can see why Kris H would get upset since she got him all pumped up and the deflate him soon after. Same situation with her having babies but I won’t go there. Mama J controls Kim. if Kim is to have a happy life she have to cut her mother’s apron’s strings. Kris H may be the wrong guy for Kim but Kim should have come to that realization on her own and not be influenced by her mom. Kim and Kris may have been having problems, the Dubai scene may be a reeactment of a real life event. Kim probably told her mother that she was having problems with Kris. Instead of her mother advising her to get counseling she advised her to divorce on 31-Oct the same time as Kris J’s book released. Is it a coincidence that Kris Jenner’s book was released at the same time that the divorce was filed. I think not. Kris Jenner planned this one, remember she said she teaches her children all about timing. Every thing happens for reasons I am glad that Kris Humphries can rid himself from that vapid family.that is controlled by the selfish and money hungry Mama J who cares more about her 10% than her children’s happiness.

Why didn’t they just live together before getting married?
Did she feel some sort of competition from her sister’s, one is married, one has a child that she felt she had to get married asap, and if thats the case, then its fraud, shes sin love with love

I for one think that she knew what she was doing and that is making tons of money from a televised wedding but she did not forsee the backlash otherwise she would have pretended and waited only because of the loss of money from the sponsors that she incurred. With the Kartrshians, it is all about the money and they have proven again and again that they will lie, pretend or do absolutely anything for it. MB

Kimmy talks too much

Posted at 12:27 PM on June 19, 2012  

Since her divorce is before the courts. Kim should have kept her mouth shut about her marriage. How is it that Kim and family continually yap away about her marriage while Kris Humphries had been mum.? She really needs to shut up already.

her attorneys have carefully coached her on what she can/should say, that is why she is talking. she is putting out the facts that she didn’t commit fraud, she just truly didn’t know what she was getting into until the moved in together. that is her story/script, and she performed it wonderfully. as for the merits, what kind of IDIOT marries someone they haven’t even spent more than a week at a time with? i understand there are mail order brides and arranged marriages, but, c’mon. this girl has ISSUES. vis a vis this marriage, in honesty, tho i hate her, i don’t think she committed fraud. i just think she’s a desperate mess who worked up some big cinderella thing in her head and wasn’t even remotely attached to the truth (actually, that is her to this day).

Oh but of course she would be bored…there’s nothing glam about being a Basketball wife … Especially because it was the lockout which Kris had no control of…BUT now you see with Kanye she is living it all up with his jet set lifestyle and rubbing shoulders with the most high profile people. She used him and Idc what people think but the show is so “BORING” without KH I watched two episodes and that was a rep for me

Kim & Kris were NOT compatible. Kim’s friends and family tried to talk to her about Kris and she would not listen. I’m sure Kris family probably did the same. Bottom line, they did not know each other and should not have gotten married. I get that she was looking at the marriages of her Mom & Bruce, Khloe & Lamar and their short courtship.

Kim has serious head problems and needs therapy before trying to be in a relationship with anyone. I wonder how she will react when Kanye gets tired of her sorry a$$. Remember how hot and heavy Kanye was with Amber and when they split. he hasn’t stopped disrespecting her. which had her in tears at one point. Kanye is a nutcase like Kim so she may have met her perfect match. Kanye as much as people say he is an a$$hole, he actually have talent and money and can do way better than Kim.

As a married woman myself who did not move in with my husband until after marriage, I cannot understand HOW these two could fail to discuss some of their differences prior to marriage and expect that little annoyances will occur. ESPECIALLY IN THE FIRST YEAR. She couldn’t bear the thought of raising children in Minnesota, and it would have “bored” her to live there. What a cheap waste of time. If she was really committed to the marriage, should would have done everything she could to make it work. Looks like she’s exhausting herself trying to make it work with Kanye.

We were waiting for months for some answers as to why she felt the need to leave the marriage and when she gives us a glimpse we are critisizing her answers. If everyone saw the show you could understand why she had to leave. When she would invite him to do something he didn’t want to. They are both guilty for the demise of their marriage. She being hard headed and not listening to the people around her. He being immature and yes boring was a recipe for disaster. I was screaming at the tv when they were having their rehearsal dinner and they sat at different tables.No matter how much we blame either party in this craziness it’s still has the same outcome. They are both adults and damage has been done. Why are we still beating a dead horse. She moved on and so did he.

iTOTALLY AGRRE! i THING THEY WERE WRONG FOR EACH OTHER FROM THE BEGINNING AND SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN MARRIED IN THE FIRST PLACE AND ANYONE WHO SAW THE WEDDING SPECIAL COULD SEE THAT. SHE WAS NEVER GOING TO BE WHO HE WANTED HER TO BE AND VICE VERSA! HE WANTED HER TO BE KHLOE AND THE WIFE KHLOE IS TO LAMAR WITH OUT THE TALKING BACK. AND SHE WANTED HIM TO BE HER BALLING PRINCE WHO FIT PERFECTLY IN HER LIFE AND HER FAMILY. THEY WERE BOTH UNREALISTIC! ALSO LET’S FACE IT KRIS COULD BE A BIT IMMATIURE AND THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE ARE TAKING HIS SIDE IS BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BRING THE KARDASHIANS DOWN, NOT BECAUSE KRIS IS RIGHT.
