And now for today's "You know there's a lockout when..." post of the day:

Kim Kardashian and Nets forward Kris Humphries have filed for divorce, according to TMZ. Ah, who am I kidding -- lockout or not, that's big news.
We're told even though the marriage was short, she will not seek an annulment. It's a garden variety divorce, in which Kim cites "irreconcilable differences." We're told the date of separation is listed as today, Oct. 31, 2011.

Kim has hired disso-queen Laura Wasser, who has repped the likes of Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds, and Robyn Gibson, Mel's almost ex-wife.
The couple was married for 72 days and did have a prenuptual agreement. Humphries reportedly spent $2 million on her engagement ring. I'd say chance are good with it just being 72 days that it falls under the return policy. Lucky for Kris.

TMZ reports that Humphries is "bummed":
Kris Humphries desperately tried to save his marriage to Kim Kardashian, because he's telling friends ... he doesn't believe in divorce.

Kris, who's a religious guy, is telling friends he and Kim discussed the possibility of divorce, but he believed they could work their problems out.
The two wed over the summer in a ceremony that reportedly cost $10 million. Meaning as TMZ calculated, that's $138,888 for every day they were married. However, E! paid out a reported $17 million for the television special for the wedding.

(If you were wondering, Humphries made $3.2 million a double-double starting power forward for the Nets last season. And he's made about $16.9 million total in his career.)

Humphries does have free agency to look forward once the lockout ends though. And without Kardashian pushing for a primetime location, a bunch of teams probably like their chances a bit better now.

Unfortunate for Kris and Kim as it's a shame any time a marriage ends. But I'm sure those sitting courtside in opposing arenas might have much sympathy.

The best ending to this non-story would be if Humphries gets signed by the Clippers or Lakers and has to live in LA anyways.

This family is so whacked out, its pathetic....They go to Bora Bora and complain the whole time. I have been there and I had a two week smile in one of the mist luxurious and beautiful places on earth...A great honeymoon. Sure beats a crappy honeymoon in San Diego.

Humphries should have realized that she was tainted.  It is his own fault for marrying her.

I don't think he will be able to find a woman again after the way he treated her on the show. He was a douche bag.
 Wow... someone actually watched??
