After reports that Kris Humphries was not willing to sign divorce papers from Kim Kardashian, insiders tell People that the reality star’s husband of 72 days is, in fact, ready to make things official.
“He will be signing the papers,” a source close to the 26-year-old basketball star told People. Shortly after Kim filed for divorce on October 31, Humphries told TMZ he wanted to save his marriage.
“I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents,” he said. “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
Humphries retreated to Minnesota where he was surrounded by family and friends. And although Kardashian made a quick dash to the midwest state – she was in Minnesota for roughly 24 hours – it seems the trip was not of reconciling nature.
Humphries looked sombre as he arrived at New York’s Guardia airport yesterday after lying low with family and friends in his home state of Minnesota.
The source told the website that Humphries is working on moving on from the split and added that recent reports which stated he was refusing to sign the divorce papers were untrue.
But Kardashian isn’t waiting by the phone wondering whether her husband (technically) will similarly reneg on their vows.
The raven-haired beauty has been keeping busy, turning up at little sister Kendall’s sweet 16 birthday party on a break from filming Tyler Perry’s “The Marriage Counselor.”
Yesterday, she took to her blog to apologise to fans for her ‘break’ from updating and thank them for their support over the past two weeks.
She wrote: ”I took a break from blogging for a while, but I’ve missed you guys so much and I want to start sharing my updates with you all again.
“I’ve been reading all your comments on here and, as always, my loyal blog dolls have been nothing but supportive. You all know who you are, so thank you! I love you guys. Kim xo.”
Meanwhile, there is a growing online campaign to get the Kardashians’ reality show pulled from TV. Cyndy Snider, the organiser of the ‘No More Kardashian’ campaign on website GoPetition, has collected 10,000 signatures since launching it on November 2.
“In a grass roots effort, we have collected [thousands of] signatures for a petition asking E! Entertainment to remove the Kardashian suite of shows from their programming,” she said in a statement.
She continued: “We feel that these shows are mostly staged and place an emphasis on vanity, greed, promiscuity, vulgarity and over-the-top conspicuous consumption.”
“While some may have begun watching the spectacle as mindless entertainment or as a sort of ‘reality satire,’ it is a sad truth that many young people are looking up to this family and are modelling their appearance and behaviour after them.
