Kim Kardashian Insists She “Married for Love” But Got “Caught Up in the Hoopla”


By Michael Lewittes


Kim Kardashian has taken to her blog to shoot down reports that her marriage was a sham, and that she profited from her wedding.

The reality star writes, “I married for love,” adding, “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!”

She further reasons, “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.”

Kardashian goes on to explain her hasty nuptials, and admits to being “caught up with the hoopla” as a reason for why it flamed out so quickly. “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,” she now realizes.

Kardashian says, “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.” She notes that she “never had the intention of hurting anybody.”

Kardashian writes, “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.”

And the reality star confronts rumors that she profited from the wedding. “There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding,” she writes. “These reports are simply not true.” In fact, as a thank you to everyone who attended her wedding and gave presents, Kardashian says, “I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation.”

Kardashian concludes, “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.” Why do you think of Kardashian’s explanation?
