Kim Kardashian Files For Divorce From Husband, Kris Humphries, After Just 72 Days Of Marriage: News Confirmed By Ryan Seacrest.
Kim Kardashian is filing for divorce from husband Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage.
The 31-year-old reality star is seeking the divorce from NBA star Kris, 26, on the grounds of 'irreconcilable differences', court documents show.
Ryan Seacrest, the producer of her E! reality show, has just tweeted: 'Yes @KimKardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins.'
Kim ensured they both signed a prenuptial agreement before they got hitched at a lavish ceremony on August 20 in Montecito, California.
It netted the couple a reported $18m from magazine deals, TV coverage and endorsements - that's $250,000 every day.
News of their divorce will no doubt add fuel to the fire that the wedding was merely a cynical manoeuvre to cash in at a time when Kim's star had reached its zenith.

Heidi Klum hosted her 12th annual Halloween party last night, October 29, at Tao Nightclub at The Venetian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. As expected, Heidi blew away the competition with her impeccably detailed bodies-exhibit-inspired costume. With a hospital bed and two doctors on hand, it creepily looked like Heidi was inside-out.

The accident happened at Lake Ognyanovo, a reservoir in Bulgaria, on Thursday as they filmed a scene on boat.Two other stuntmen, reportedly Chinese, were also injured in the blast. One is apparently in a critical condition.
"It is with great regret that we confirm this unfortunate accident. Our hearts go out to the families and those on the production affected by this tragedy. The filmmakers are working closely with the authorities in responding to and investigating this accident,"

The Bulgarian police have launched an investigation.
The film is set for release August 2012.
Jennifer Lopez has a lot going for her right now, but a few months ago, her world was nearly shattered. Her marriage to Marc Anthony fell apart and disrupted her personal and professional life. The two have managed to stay friends and are still working together on their various business ventures. They have also remained close for their children. Jennifer has recently been spotted out with actor, Bradley Cooper, but she is not talking too much about her personal life this time around.
However, she is more than willing to dish out some relationship advice. She has been married three times and involved in several high-profile relationships. She admits she has learned a bit. One of the most important lessons learned, “You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else.” The actress turned singer has rarely been single.
If you think that how long you’ll live is based on how long your grandparents and parents live, you’re only partly right. While genetics certainly have an impact, you have more control than you might assume. “By the time you turn 55, only about 30% of how quickly you age is based on your genes, as compared to 50% when you’re younger—the rest is due to your lifestyle choices,” says Michael Roizen, MD, chief wellness officer at the Cleveland Clinic.
To figure out about how many years certain habits can add to your life, Dr. Roizen created the RealAge test, which uses data from hundreds of studies by groups including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Center for Health Statistics.
With his help, we’ve gathered the most important habits and estimated how much longer each one may extend your life.

There was a big confrontation at Nicki Minaj’s house in Hollywood moments ago … and it got so bad the cops came … TMZ has learned.
Here’s the backstory. Law enforcement tells us, a couple of weeks ago, Nicki’s maid took a photo of the singer out of the trash and then asked Nicki to sign it. Nicki got pissed and fired her.
Cops tell us, the maid did come back today, and Nicki became enraged and ordered her to leave. A source privy to the fight tells TMZ, the maid stood her ground, demanding not to be “treated like an animal” — at which point, Nicki allegedly said, “I’ll show you how to treat someone like an animal … get the f**k out of my house!”
Now here’s where the stories are a bit conflicting. One source says — contrary to what the cops say — Nicki actually made a mistake, saw another maid and assumed she was the one Nicki had fired.
We have had multiple people involved in the incident tell us … the maid Nicki confronted was NOT the same maid she fired a few weeks ago. It was a case of mistaken identity.Either way, Nicki’s boyfriend got in the act and began pushing the maid with his body.
The maid’s boss called the cops and filed a battery report.
The cops came and the maid asked to make a citizen’s arrest, but eventually decided against it so no one was taken into custody.

Eddie Murphy gives a rare interview to Rolling Stone in the mag’s latest issue, on newsstands Friday (October 28).
On being a called a recluse:
“I leave my house all the time. But I’m not at all the Hollywood parties. I’m grown, and where else am I supposed to be? I’m supposed to be home . . . If I were out in the clubs every night, they’d be saying, ‘That’s a shame, look at him, 50 years old, he’s still out at these clubs.’ Recluses are nasty, with long nails, don’t wash their ass.?.?.?. I’m too vain to be a recluse. But homebody, absolutely. I’m 50 years old, beautiful house, I’m supposed to be home, chilling.”
On doing Beverly Hills Cop IV:
“They’re not doing it. What I’m trying to do now is produce a TV show starring Axel Foley’s son, and Axel is the chief of police now in Detroit. I’d do the pilot, show up here and there. None of the movie scripts were right; it was trying to force the premise. If you have to force something, you shouldn’t be doing it. It was always a rehash of the old thing. It was always wrong.”
On returning to stand-up comedy:
“If I ever get back onstage, I’m going to have a really great show for you all. An hour and a half of stand-up and about 40 minutes of my sh*itty band . . . But I haven’t done it since I was 27, so why f*ck with it? But that’s just weighing both sides. It comes up too much for me to not do it again. It’s like, when it hits me, I’ll do it, eventually.”
