Kim Kardashian denies marrying for TV, but made a reported R126 million from the wedding!

Since filing for divorce just days ago, Kim K has spoken publicly for the first time about her impending split.

The reality star’s reported earnings from her marriage, said to be around R126 million, have brought her under fire about her motives for her wedding Kris Humphries – and at that amount even dewy-eyed romantics are spotting a pretty convincing reason as to why Kim wedded her ex-beau so quickly and publicly.

The star told an Australian radio station that “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!” 

Meanwhile, Kris has cancelled his appearance at the Chateau Nightclub in Las Vegas on Saturday instead fleeing to his native Minnesota, where he is said to be ‘devastated’.

It sounds like Kim’s filing for divorce came as a bit of a shock to Kris, who is quoted as saying “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to work.” Ouch!

Either way, who could say no to pocketing a hefty pay cheque for their wedding day? Although it definitely seems true that money can’t buy you happiness!

“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!””First and foremost, I married for love. I can’t believe I even have to defend this.
