Kim Kardashian thought her career was ‘totally over’ after divorcing Kris Humphries


Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian out and about in London this weekend. She flew to England late last week after spending several days in Cannes, taking part in the Cannes Lions conference. She stayed in London when Kanye traveled to Paris for the day to check out the Louis Vuitton collection, and then Kim joined Kanye at Glastonbury to watch his performance. They arrived by helicopter, which must have been hell on Kim’s morning sickness.

Before Glastonbury, Kim was photographed in a couple of black outfits in London. She went out shopping at Harrods and a lingerie store called Rigby & Peller. At Harrods, she ran into Serena Williams and they hugged and chatted for a moment while the paparazzi snapped photos. At Rigby & Peller – which is the Queen’s favorite lingerie shop, by the way – Kim purchased two new bras, one in nude and one in black. It’s funny because just a few hours later, Kim was photographed going braless, with her tatas on full display underneath a very thin black blouse – you can see the NSFW photos here. You know why Kim had to buy some new bras? Because her boobs are really out of control with this pregnancy. Poor Kim.

Meanwhile, Kim has been chatting about a number of things. A lot of people have been claiming lately that Kylie Jenner is trying to/succeeding at morphing into Kim. When asked about Kylie’s morph, Kim said: “I love that. She is the best, you know? She’s my little twin soul. She’s such a free spirit, and I love that. She’s the sweetest.” Kim was also just asked about her second husband, Kris Humphries, and how bad that whole episode was for her “career”.

Kim Kardashian West hit rock bottom after her 2011 split from second husband Kris Humphries. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star encountered a lot of backlash after ending her marriage to the NBA player after just 72 days, and admitted in an interview on Friday that she thought her days as a celebrity were over.

“When I was going through the divorce I did say to everyone, ‘You guys, I think our careers are over. I hope you’ve saved your money. And now we’ll just continue to do our clothing stores and what we started off doing before the show. I totally thought it was over,” she told British businessman Sir Martin Sorrell in an interview for The Drum.

Kardashian West, 34, explained that she was being “very paranoid” and decided to take some time off to regroup.

“The time was really good for me,” she said. “I cancelled everything. I had a book tour, I had a fragrance launch, I had everything that you could possibly imagine and I just cancelled it all and I took time for me.”

I remember the backlash against Kim after she filed for divorce after just 72 days of marriage to Kris Humphries. But you know why she survived that? It was Kanye West, true, but it was also Kris Humphries being so dumb. Some Kardashian-haters really hoped that Humphries would stick it to Kim and that he would be able to prove “fraud” or something and he really drew out their divorce for much longer than it needed to be. And in the end, he was the one who looked like a douchebag. In the end, I think a lot of women in particular were like, “Oh, I get why she divorced him, he’s That Guy Trying to Punish His Ex For Dumping Him.” Kim was stupid to marry Humphries, don’t get me wrong, but I still don’t fault her for divorcing him.

    Which career?

    • Obsidian says:

      Kim’s delusions.

    • Tate says:

      Her pap strolling career.

    • Michibe says:

      Totally my thought! Followed by “if only!”

    • nic says:

      Her career making piles of money.
      Her career being a huge hit on social media.
      Her career being the #1 villain you’re writing about on cb.
      Her career signing her name to designs and perfumes.
      Her career as a reality TV personality/actress/whatever

      Girl works. Maybe you don’t approve of all… of any of what she does, but gimmie a break with this what career nonsense.

      • Josefa says:

        Can any of that be described as a career, though?

        Her family is clearly doing something right, as they make millions on the entertainment bizz without having any sort of talent. But let’s not act like taking selfies resembles anything close to a job.

      • swack says:

        If you consider “work” just endorsing products or signing a name here and there, then I guess she works.

  2. Diane says:

    We can only wish that were true!

  3. dr mantis toboggan says:

    Like u said, kanye saved theKardashians. He is as much to blame as them

    • Bella says:

      Agreed. Not only did he save them, he has made them bigger than ever. If Kanye wasn’t tied to this family, I think the majority of the media would’ve given up on them by now. I also think the media would take a lot more issue with Kylie’s endless plastic surgery and illegal relationship with her 25 year old boyfriend, but because they’re now tied to Kanye, they’re all seen as legitimate and untouchable. As long as Kanye is respected as an artist and a major celeb, these people aren’t going anywhere.

  4. NewWester says:

    Since when is dressing in clothes that are way too small, calling the paps, carrying a cell phone and walking from a car to a building then back to car, considered a career?

    • Greata says:

      @NewWester…what’s even more frightening is that she truly believes she has a career.

    • boredblond says:

      I guess when you can get a lot of people to pay you to do it, haha. Her thinking is 180 wrong..hubby was dull, added nothing to the show, and the divorce added drama..which just helped ratings. Nobody was surprised by the divorce.

  5. The Eternal Side-Eye says:



    I will say I don’t think Kim really loves anyone but Kim, so it was easy for her to orchestrate what many consider a lifetime commitment only to drop it 72 days later. Now Kylie…sadly I think she loves that loser, which means if she really is Kim in training she’ll feel a lot more anguish over her break up and tape release.

    Also an excellent bit of shade happened at the BET awards with Tracie Ellis Ross announcing for Chris Brown and Tyga. They really are on the bottom floor in terms of popularity.

  6. Dash says:

    She got so lucky with Kanye. I honestly thought no famous guy would ever date her again. And now she’s married to a properly successful and critically acclaimed superstar. How did she do it.

    • pk says:

      The story they spun is that he’d been wanting to date her for years. He was the last resort to save her so called career.

    • Amber says:

      I posted something similar to this way back when Tyga was denying his relationship with Kylie. But I’ll repeat it :D Midway through the Khloe/Amber “Whore War”, Reggie Bush started following Amber Rose on Twitter and Alexis Phifer (Kanye’s first fiance) liked her posts too. That pretty much confirms the ill feelings and accusations about Kim and Kanye hooking up throughout the years once and for all to me. (Amber, Alexis, Kris, Reggie, no one who crosses paths with Kanye and Kardashians leaves with a positive opinion of them.) But let’s go down the list, shall we? Long before Kanye himself put a date on it in their Vogue cover interview, it’s been known that he’s been obsessed with Kim since they met in 2003. (Obsessed, because Kim’s little more than a prop and a real life doll for him to collect, own and show off.) Cute right? Not really. Kanye began dating Alexis in 2002, got engaged in 2006, and split in 2008. And what was the rumored cause? That he cheated on her with Kim. And I’ll give you two guesses of who Alexis has shaded a few times on Twitter throughout the years. (It’s not Amber.) So we get to Rose and Bush. Amber always insisted, since day one, that Kim and Kanye cheated while both were in relationships. (She’s never minced words about photos, texts, confrontations, etc.,) So Kanye cheated on Amber, somehow found a way to feel wronged by her, and wrote a whole album (his last good one in FIVE years) about her, like sane, gentlemen do. But clearly Kimye was meant to be, right? They couldn’t stay away from each other… Before they were officially a couple, LOL. So what does Kim do when she finds that she and Kanye are both single? Why marry Kris Humphries of course! Kanye was her last resort and she sold what little was left of her soul to extend her 15 minutes, deflect from the negative press over her 72 day marriage, and to be photographed in the vicinity of Beyonce and Wintour. Not to mention the instant pregnancy before she’d even wrapped up her last divorce. It’s the greatest love story of our time. GAG! I honestly think Donda’s passing has something to do with a lot of it. This is when he cheats on Alexis. This is when Amber enters the picture. This is when he’s buying Kim expensive gifts while she’s still dating Reggie and he’s with Amber. It’s not until Donda’s death that Kanye really goes off the deep end. Don’t get me wrong. Plenty of people who knew Yeezus way back when say he was always like this. Not as smart as he thinks, self-obsessed, and more than a little off. But he has seemed incapable of controlling his mouth or his d*ck, while being a little too controlling with his partners, (a rumor that goes back to Alexis as well) ever since his mother wasn’t around to keep him in check. Which I bet included not approving of Kim.

      • Tacos and TV says:

        Wow… I completely agree with this. I don’t think she was attracted to Kanye enough to want to be in a relationship with him. He’s a short, little man with a huge ego. Kim was happy with Reggie Bush. Even if she did cheat and I personally think she cheated because Reggie was. But, finally she gets with kanye right after her divorce. She had to.

      • Bitca says:

        First: Hey, MBDTF was genius, but don’t knock Yeezus. The former is an anytime lp; Yeezus is for primal-scream times. OK, pushing aside my painful break w/Kanye fangirling (idc bout anybody’s crazee, just their music). ‘Ye was an under-dog “still-relevant” guy imo, til he exposed his ill madonna/whore worldview by claiming double-digit # of showers to clean off his ex &c. Still fond of the music, but a freeze-frame of him on YT with Adam Levine fortifies my resolve.

        Now: dropping Kris H (husband 2) like any other fizzled KUWTK plotline, Kim’s still historically a weirdly submissive wife. There was a lot of buzz after she split from husband 1 re his allegedly controlling nature. Supposedly — like ‘Ye — #1 was also a wannabe Pygmalion, & in divorce papers for one side it was he who insisted Kim get implants, heavy makeover, etc.

        My worthless inference is that Kim ~devours~ attention that focuses so intensely on her own self-appearance… May even excite her (as much as Kim K can be; what’s w/that sleepy gaze, btw? Pot brownies? Sorry; never seen the show). But like many power/submission relationships it can get old, or cease to offer an acceptable return on investment.
        Yes; I waste far too much time looking for meaning in the surface of dirty puddles.

  7. icy says:

    Thats why she marry Kanye. They all using him. He is just to stupid to notice!

  8. Birdie says:

    This is exactly why she got together with Kanye after him being in love with her all this time. He was useful.

  9. jwoolman says:

    I don’t known why anybody would be so trusting of Kim the Liar (whose stories about this and other things shift with the wind) and so down on Humphries. He did deserve an annulment. She happily trotted out after 72 days to file for divorce with no discussion, no counseling. Who does that if they’re serious about a marriage? I doubt that she even talked seriously with the guy off camera. She lost interest in him between wedding gown changes during the wedding (she wore three different ones). There is simply no way that Humphries would have involved his sister in the wedding party and his pastor to officiate if he thought this wedding wasn’t real. But the Kardashians did their best to ignore his parents and his sister (she was badly treated during and after; the K Klan oops forgot to make transportation arrangements for his family) and even blocked him from inviting his real friends from Minnesota (not famous enough for the cameras, I guess, although Dina and Lindsay Lohan made the cut). These were major red flags, wish he had left her standing at the altar.

    I really think she ran to divorce him not because of anything he did, but rather what Kanye said. Kanye very likely told Kim that since he was free, too bad she wasn’t or else they could get together. She raced to trade up, that’s all. Humphries couldn’t get her a Vogue cover or a ticket to the Met ball. She used her editing privileges on her show to rewrite history and also engaged in the usual smear campaign Kardashians aim at their ex’es. Kim and Kanye had been friends with benefits for years, even Amber Rose complained about their behavior while she was with Kanye.

    Humphries just wanted to get back into basketball and the dragged out proceedings (dragged out by Kim, not Humphries) were getting in the way. He probably felt sorry for her since she was pregnant at the time. He wasn’t an awful person, just too trusting of Kim. I think he actually loved her and expected a real life with her, kids and all. He was a very typical Midwestern guy, blunt and needing to be told if anything he’s doing is bothering you. Which is what real couples do when they’re bothered. Kim didn’t even want him to move his stuff in to her place and just used him as a stooge on her stupid show. She was not serious about the marriage and should have given him the annulment that he wanted. She owed him that much.

    Anyway, Kim is a pathological liar. Be wary of believing her spin on anything.

    • swack says:

      Thank you. I don’t know why people are still blaming Kris H for dragging out the divorce. Kim was the one not wanting to give her deposition. That’s what took so long.

    • Bella says:

      @jwoolman +1 to everything you said. Trying to point the finger at Humphries for anything is just wrong and also really inaccurate. The real reason they got divorced was because Kris didn’t sugarcoat anything when he talked to Kim; he didn’t treat her like the special snowflake that she believes she is, and he didn’t share her want and need for fame and a lavish lifestyle. I remember on one episode in particular he was talking about them buying a big house in Minnesota where he is from and she threw a fit saying she wasn’t going to live there, she even broke down into tears. They also had a fight because she made fun of his NYC apartment and wanted him to get something nicer and bigger and he said no. For people who don’t watch the show, they might not know that Kim throws an actual fit and bursts into tears whenever something doesn’t go her way and there are 10 whole seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians as proof of this. It is extremely disturbing how far her family went to try to make Kris out to be some sort of abuser who mistreated her and made her cry all of the time, because Kim behaved in the same way well before she was ever with him. There are memes all over the Internet that are just different pictures of Kim’s ugly crying face because she cries so often. When it actually counted Kris was very tender and sincere with her; on their wedding episode, she broke down crying because her dad couldn’t be there and he was incredibly sweet and caring toward her. Just like Reggie, Kris was another guy Kim dated who wanted a normal life without all the paparazzi and the famewhoring, but Kim lives for that. THIS is the reason their relationship, and Kim’s other relationships, failed. Kris had every right to drag out that divorce because he WAS defrauded. It doesn’t make him a bad guy, especially considering she blindsided him with the divorce and made him look like an absolute fool. Kim was never innocent and she admitted that she began talking to Kanye while she was still married to Kris, so to put it in layman’s terms, she couldn’t even keep it together and make a valiant effort for the measly 72 days they were legally married.

      Kim would love any man that would spoil her with ridiculous, tacky, unnecessary shows of grandeur such as a wedding rehearsal at Versailles, a wall of flowers, 1,000 roses on Valentine’s day, a $40,000 Hermes bag with some atrocious painting on it. Kim only loves Kanye because Kanye makes her dreams come true; he got her the cover of Vogue, he opened up an entire new world for her and her family by getting them taken seriously by circles that would’ve never deigned to acknowledge them before. It wouldn’t matter who the man was as long as he went on a regular rampage about how she should be taken seriously because she is so perfect and beautiful and smart, she would be happy.

      All that Kim cares about is fame, a lavish, tacky lifestyle, and getting her ego stroked–any man that could supply her with these things would be the guy for her.

    • Nuna says:

      I don’t know much about Kris Humphries but I saw an interview snippet and he was all over her. He really loved Kim K and she’s a trashy, grotesque person who has never had a real career to speak of. Both parties in this doomed couple are not bright people but he had sincerity at the very least.

  10. jwoolman says:

    Save your sympathy about Kim’s alleged morning sickness. Just because she claims she had it doesn’t make it so. She lies. Her actions have not been at all consistent with her claims. She is also past the point of normal morning sickness if she ever seriously had it to any degree.

    Remember that Kim LIES. About everything. If she says it, then it is very likely not true and you need reliable corroboration before believing any of it. She appropriates stories from other people and pretends they are her own. She especially has been doing this with medical issues to get sympathy, but if you know anything about the issues then you see many inconsistencies.

    Pathological liars like Kim get believed because most people (unless they have been unfortunate enough to be targeted by one, as I have) can’t believe that anybody would make up such things from whole cloth. But they really do. Don’t look for the fire because they’re claiming smoke. They really do make things up with no basis in fact whatsoever.

    • swack says:

      Again, thank you! If you have morning sickness as bad as she claims she has you don’t fly around the world and you definitely don’t fly in a helicopter. Much less wear tight restricting clothes. All things that will make morning sickness worse.

  11. Bella says:

    What stuck out most to me in this was the enormity of this hosebeast’s ego. I wish I could say I’m surprised about her comments on Kylie morphing into her, but I’m not. When asked what she thinks about her little sister wanting to morph into her, her response is that she loves it? This answers a lot of questions about why no one is stopping Kylie from destroying herself and why no one seems to care that she has zero self esteem. How utterly fucking twisted. She loves it that her little sister hates herself and wants to look like someone else, because in Kim’s eyes, she is the most beautiful woman on the planet and everyone should look like her. Anytime I think I can let this chick up and not hate her, I find a new reason. They’re all such terrible people in this family, it never stops being appalling to me.

    I really have to disagree about the divorce between Kim and Khris being his fault in anyway. I think they were both morons who got married too quickly, but I think he had much better intentions than she did. Kim wants a fantasy life. I watch the show and I remember how badly they portrayed Khris because he didn’t constantly blow smoke up Kim’s ass. Khris is definitely on the dumb side, but he was a NORMAL guy and these women have really warped issues with men. None of them can handle a marriage or a long term, healthy relationship–this includes their mother. Note how Kim is oh so happy with Kanye partly because he is the kind of guy who goes on interviews and refers to her as the most beautiful woman ever and the modern Marilyn Monroe and a social media mastermind, even comparing her to Michelle Obama. There is also the fact that Kanye does lavish, tacky things to show his love for her, like send her a wall of flowers, 1,000 dozens of roses, and having servers at restaurants refer to her as the best mother in the world as they serve her. I think Kim’s expectations have always been unrealistic to an unhealthy degree.

    It is extremely unfair to bash Khris for how he acted during the divorce. He was made to look like a fool by some a group of attention whore women who really seem to view men as temporary entertainment until something new and better comes along.

    • Lynnie says:

      I wanna see if a reporter asks Kylie the same question and what her answer will be. In my mind it really seems like Kylie thinks she’s being her own person or “finding herself” and I doubt she would take the comparison kindly.

      • Bella says:

        I totally agree. Kylie thinks she’s a free spirit but she really has no self-identity and isn’t even giving herself a chance to develop one. It seems like no reporters want to take Kylie on, yet they all condone her behavior. The E! Online website regularly posts pictures of Tyga and Kylie and refers to them as a cute couple. Everyone was all over Kim about her butt for years, but nobody is asking Kylie how she miraculously grew one overnight.

      • Lynnie says:

        Well I don’t expect E! (really should be called K!) to do anything since the Kardashians are their breadwinners. In regards to Kylie and how she gets away with her new body and attitude I think it’s a combination of the fact that she’s (not for long) underage so if they really go after her all her moronic fans will start screaming “She’s just a kid!!! OMG, leave her alone.” With her body it’s the good old puberty excuse. (Nevermind that puberty doesn’t give you a magazine-approved pin-up body.)

  12. Janie says:

    I wish she had been clearer about her “career”, no idea what she’s talking about? It’s interesting how her morning sickness only shows up when convenient? This woman is a whole lot of delusional.

  13. Lynnie says:

    Oh Serena… you can do so much better.

    In other news, during Kanye’s set at Glastonbury someone waved a flag showing how Kim’s career actually began.

    • E Fab says:

      Dude! I typed this late so see my post below. This is crazy! I wish we had a pic of Kanye seeing it. And how do you think Kim handles this with him?

      • Lynnie says:

        Somehow I don’t think he cares that much. After all he had that one lyric in the song “Clique” or “Mercy,” and I think he was even present at that Paper shoot so *shrugs*

        I’d be much more interested in Kim’s reaction. Apparently she was at the concert as well.

    • Bella says:

      LOL that is amazing.

    • Me too says:

      OMG that flag was the funniest thing EVER. Laughed for days this weekend!!!!

    • lola says:

      This is so stupid.

  14. Tara says:

    That’s why she got with Kanye to save her “career” after the backlash.

  15. E Fab says:

    Did you guys see the flag someone flew at his performance that was a pic of her giving Ray J dome? How could he even perform looking at his wife and the mother of his children doing that?

    It was awesome.

  16. GPSB says:

    IF ONLY.

  17. Jayna says:

    After that phoney, let’s-make-a-lot-of-money and huge publicity wedding and then dumping him, the damage control was hysterical. A photo-op of Kim all back in the church-going mode, with LeAnn Rhimes of all people.

    Lots of photo-ops of Momager and Kim going down to Haiti. Of course, she never went to Haiti again. And she dumped LeAnn quickly after she didn’t need her. I never saw LeAnn at church again after Kim dumped her from the one photo-op even though LeAnn stalked them on twitter for a while with no response.

    Kim serving food to the homeless after the backlash from the split.

    Nothing was working. So, finally, after turning him down for years, she latched on to Kanye, her real savior.

  18. fadetoblack says:

    I think she looks quite nice here…

  19. Anon says:

    LoL. I know this is silly and out of context but I find it very interesting watching commenters decline. None if posts get anywhere the response the Ks or Kim used to get.. People are getting bored and it’s fascinating to watch the media force feed Kim and the others as they continue to be more desperate.

  20. Josephine says:

    I’ve always assumed that the 72 day marriage was very planned, and very purposeful. These people are famous for humiliating themselves over and over again, and for people enjoying that. They exist because of negative attention and insecure teenage girls, and a few folks with exceedingly low standards.

  21. The Original Mia says:

    It was my hope as well, but alas…no.

  22. Chris Humphreys is not dumb–he is a traditional american guy who loved Kim, and was naïve to believe that she loved him also. He was willing to make an honest woman out of her, he was too trusting to realize that Kim and her entire family were a real life soap opera and they were just using him for a prop in a story line. And Kenye is rich & famous–but not smart, he does and says stupid constantly.

  23. lucy says:

    Her career ended when she stopped working for Paris Hilton.

  24. NeNe says:

    What career does she have? I didn’t realize being a fame-wh*re was a career! My bad!!!
