Kim Kardashian Writes A Heartfelt Letter To Her Fans: “I’m Sorry If I Hurt Anyone”
This Halloween was particularly scary for Kim Kardashian. Forget about ghouls and goblins, after announcing that she was divorcing from her husband, Kris Humphries, of only 72 days, the 31-year-old quickly felt the wrath of fans, press and basically, the entire world. Most cried foul and called the wedding a made-for-TV sham. Kim took to her blog to address the rumors and to explain how her fairytale wedding turned into a nightmare.
This is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to write. I see all of the support and I am so thankful for my fans, friends and family who are helping me through this difficult time.
I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it’s hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. 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! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments. That’s what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open!
Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn’t get off when now I know I probably should have. 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.
I’m being honest here and I hope you respect my courage because this isn’t easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my heart. 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.
There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. 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’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart. I believe now that I really am.
Despite her seeming sincerity, the comments that have since followed have been mixed. “BMani” wrote, “Fairly confident that she’s a loathsome human being. Good thing we don’t let the gays get together and sully the purity of marriage!” Meanwhile, “Justin” offered words of support for Kimmy. “In this most liberal world, life is a business.” Currency isn’t always currency as we know it. The most valuable things in life aren’t things that have a price on them, The love in your heart and the time you have to give are two things that are most precious because they are priceless. The smarter you are with these assets, the more successful your life will be as it is a business. Love you Kim. ”
