"I married for love," Kardashian wrote in a blog post after numerous reports surfaced alleging that her relationship with Humphries was staged. "I can't believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show! I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it's who I am!"
Kardashian went on to say she's a "hopeless romantic" who may have "rushed in to something too soon." "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.
As for the reports that say Kardashian and Humphries made money off their wedding, the 31-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star says those are untrue. "I'm so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I'll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation."
"I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn't turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for."
Kardashian filed for divorce Monday from the 26-year-old pro basketball player after just 72 days of marriage. "After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage," Kardashian said in a statement to Ryan Seacrest. "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 pair wed in August after eight months of dating.
