Kim speaks.

Hours after news broke that she filed for divorce from Kris Humphries following just two months of marriage, the reality star, 31, released a statement to Us Weekly.

"After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage," she says of Humphries, 26, whom she wed in a notoriously lavish Aug. 20 wedding in Montecito, Calif.

"I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best."

The duo tied the knot after just nine months of dating.
