Kim Kardashian has revealed that she is still surprised by the backlash that she received following her decision to file for divorce from Kris Humphries. Kim claims that she was just trying to follow her heart and that, if it was all a ploy to make money, she would have stayed with him for much longer than she actually did.
Kardashian explained, "I think me being such a hopeless romantic I wanted to believe in something so badly. If this was a business decision and I really made all that money that everyone claimed we made from the wedding and it was just for TV, I'm a smart businesswoman, I would have stayed married longer. This is a bad business decision, do you know what I mean? If you really think about it, it doesn't make sense that everyone says that. I really didn't think that following my heart would create this much backlash."
She added, "I definitely tried everything I felt like I could, but I would also hear stories of people who had kids and started this life and stayed married for years and it ended up not working out. I just felt like if I don't feel in my heart this is right then why wait years to have the same result?" Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage.
