Kim unfollows Kris on Twitter
Kim Kardashian is no longer keeping up with her husband - just two days after filing for divorce, she’s unfollowed him on Twitter.
Kardashian, 31, who filed for divorce from Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage, has cut the NBA star from her inner circle of 151 friends on the site.
In line with his bid to remain faithful to their vows, Humphries, 26, continues to list Kardashian as one of the 51 people he follows.
But then, with Kardashian is in Australia promoting her fashion line this week, Twitter may be the only way Humphries can keep tabs on his estranged wife.
Of course, he’ll be only one of her nearly 11 million other followers hanging from the starlet’s every word.
That includes a tweeted statement about her reasons for calling off the marriage, in which she thanked some fans for their support.
Humphries, on the other hand, hasn’t tweeted since news of the divorce broke. He has a far less impressive Twitter following than his bride, with 657,503 followers.
The cold social media shoulder comes after reports saying Kris Humphries' family are partly to blame for the failure of their marriage.
While the short time span of the union has led people to speculate that the nuptials were a "hoax" and "publicity stunt" for money and ratings for Kim's television shows, she insists it’s not the truth.
Kardashian says Kris' parents had nothing but "disdain for her and her family" according to TMZ.
"It's ridiculous that Kris' family is making Kris look like the victim," Kim told those around her, according to a TMZ source.
The insider also added that Kris' family "belittled" Kim and were "nasty" to her family.
"I mean, you know, it's a tough situation. I think I'm trying to do the best I can, and it's actually a bit of an escape to come here," Kim said during a videotaped radio interview for the Kyle and Jackie O show.
"I don't think I'm ready to go into, you know, the details of what went on in my marriage," she explained. "I do want to make clear that I would never marry for a TV show, for money, for anything like that. I think that's really ridiculous that I have to even defend that.
"I guess, you know, that comes along with when you film your wedding for a reality show," she added.
Kim has flown to Australia with her younger sister Khloe and her husband Lamar Odom.
Khloe has been offering moral support to Kim and insists she has made the right decision.
"The thing I've always admired about Kim, and I know right now it's of course too soon, but I've always admired her view on life and love," said Khloe. "I don't have that, I never had that view. So I've always loved that about Kim. It makes her such a real person and I never want that to go away."
However, US Weekly reports that Kim knew her marriage with Kris was doomed even before their wedding day. The pair tied the knot on August 20 this year in a ceremony that reportedly cost US$10 million.
Friends say that Kim was having doubts early on in the relationship.
"She knew it was wrong before they were even married," a source told the publication. "They were not seeing eye to eye and it felt wrong. She was calling friends, telling them she didn't want to do it."
Another pal revealed that Kim felt pressured by the public nature of the ceremony. The 31-year-old allegedly felt that she couldn't back out.
"She felt like she couldn't turn back," said the second source. "She got in over her head. She made a big mistake and she knows it.
