August 20, 2011 is now a day that will live in reality TV infamy. Kim Kardashian wed beau of 9 months Kris Humphries in a lavish, $10 million extravaganza in Montecito, Calif. By Halloween, just 72 days later, Kardashian, 31, filed for divorce from the NBA star, 26.
But pals tell the new Us Weekly, out now, that Kardashian saw red flags before that big, hugely publicized day. "She knew it was wrong before they were even married," a Kardashian insider says. "They were not seeing eye to eye and it felt wrong."
Indeed, as she and her family were putting the finishing touches on the wedding, "she was calling friends, telling them she didn't want to do it," the source reveals to Us.
In the end, however, with so many expectations riding on the nuptials, "she felt like she couldn't turn back," another pal says.
"She got in over her head. She made a big mistake and she knows it."
Kardashian admitted as much in an emotional blog post Tuesday — her first since Monday's shocking divorcing filing.
"I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off when now I know I probably should have," she wrote. "I got caught up with the hoopla and the filming of the TV show that when I probably should have ended my relationship, I didn't know how to and didn't want to disappoint a lot of people."
