A sad-looking Kim Kardashian faced the media last night ... a MASSIVE swarm of paparazzi waiting for her at LAX, which fired off questions faster than Kim could end a marriage. Kim got the hell out of Dodge, boarding a plane to Australia ... without her wedding ring.
Kim Kardashian has decided to end her 72-day-long marriage to Kris Humphries. Just 24 hours after the news first broke, the reality starlet is getting lots of support from the rest of the close-knit Kardashian clan.
"Our sister is going through a difficult time but we're a close family and are sticking together like always," Kourtney Kardashian tweeted. "We appreciate everyone's kindness and support. @KimKardashian, we love you." Meanwhile, outspoken little sister Khloe had a message for all the haters out there. "Reading some [of] these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand & r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything," she tweeted. "Thank God for family. We are strong and we will only become closer! I love YOU."
Rob Kardashian, in good spirits and seemingly unfazed by his sister Kim's marital problems. Speaking afterwards, he said the family is offering Kim unconditional support during a difficult time. "Obviously she's going through a lot right now, but she has her family and we're very supportive of everything she does and every decision that she makes," he told PEOPLE after the taping, as he stood arm in arm with partner Cheryl Burke.
Brittny Gastineau, who attended Kim and Kris' lavish August 20 wedding and even caught the bride's bouquet, spoke to USmagazine.com about the breakup. "I feel bad for any couple that tries to make it," Gastineau said. "Kim has been my best friend for years and I know she is so strong. I have faith in her."
