Kim Kardashian And Kris Humphries: A Timeline

We take a look back at soon-to-be-divorced couple's whirlwind courtship and marriage.

After a $10 million wedding, a TV special, 72 days of marriage and several weeks of speculation about a split, Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from her husband of less than three months, Kris Humphries, citing "irreconcilable differences."

"After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision," Kardashian told MTV News in a statement about the headline-making divorce. "I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best."

So how did Kim and Kris go from falling in love overnight to an even-faster falling-out? Well, let's take a look back at the whirlwind romance:

October 31, 2010: Exactly one year before she filed for divorce, Kim was spotted sitting courtside at her soon-to-be boyfriend's basketball game. A few days later, they made their first public appearance together in New York.

January 1, 2011: By the time New Year's Day hit, the romance heated up and Kim was feeling comfortable enough with her new beau to tweet a photo of a young Kris with the message "I want my son to look like this!"

January 23, 2011: Even though it was pretty obvious the two were dating, Kim told MTV News she was still very much single. "I never have been single in my life," she said. "So [after] getting married as a teenager and then getting into a relationship, each lasting like four years, after that, something inside of me, I just felt like I wanted to be single."

Kim's Cover Up: How The Tabloids Got It Right

February 5, 2011: Kris and Kim stepped out to celebrate his 26th birthday. Just two months later, they took their relationship to the next level when he traveled with the rest of the Kardashian clan to Bora Bora for a family vacation.

May 18, 2011: Just seven months after meeting, Kim and Kris got engaged after he slipped a 20.5-carat, $2 million ring on her finger. "I didn't expect this at all," Kardashian said of the proposal, which included Humphries writing out "Will You Marry Me?" in rose petals in her bedroom. "I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now."

June 8, 2011: Kim's family was just as shocked as the rest of us about the upcoming wedding. "We were totally surprised. I mean, because I had been working so much, and Kris lives in New Jersey, I've only met him not even a handful of times," Khloé told MTV News about the whirlwind romance. "We were at a family dinner and she walks in, and she's like, 'I'm engaged,' but we didn't even know if it was a joke."

Tick Tock: The Shortest Celebrity Marriages Ever

June 12, 2011: It wasn't a joke. And fans got to see what Kim and Kris were like together when Humphries made his "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" debut. Occasionally getting into verbal scuffles with Kardashian's relatives, Kris may not have been a perfect fit in the family, but he seemed to make Kim happy.

August 20, 2011: The two pressed on with their plans to marry, tying the knot in front of 450 guests in an over-the-top affair at an estate in California. In addition to their families, many of their celeb friends also attended the shindig, including Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough, Lindsay Lohan, La La Vazquez, Eva Longoria and many of Humphries' Nets teammates. Kim walked down the aisle in Vera Wang, just like Khloé had when she married Lamar Odom.

August 25, 2011: MTV News caught up with Hough a few days after the wedding, and she gushed about the affair. "The dresses were so gorgeous, and watching those beautiful girls walk down the aisle ... they are absolutely stunning," Hough said. "To just see them walking down the aisle was just beautiful."

August 28, 2011: After the wedding, the pair went on their honeymoon in Italy, but Kim rushed back to attend the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. "Back in the US and it feels sooo good!" she tweeted upon her return. "Had such a fun relaxing time away! Back to reality!"

They Did What? React on Facebook

October 9-10, 2011: For those who didn't make the guest list, the world got to see the wedding when E! aired a four-hour special spanning two nights titled "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event." In the special, it was clear that while the couple wanted it to work and cared for one another, their personalities would clash and sometimes lead to lovers' quarrels.

October 31, 2011: A little more than two months after they said "I do," these two are now saying "Not so much." In the weeks leading up to the announcement, they had been plagued by speculation of marital discourse.

November 27, 2011: Even though they are no longer together, Kris and Kim's marriage will be documented on the second season of "Kourtney & Kim Take New York," which kicks off November 27. In previews for the show, fans have gotten a peek at the short-lived marriage. "How am I going to have my career and live in Minnesota?" Kim asks Kris when he suggests they move to his hometown. His response? "Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, nobody will probably care about you."

Jay-Z/Kanye Tour Is 'Theatrical,' DJ Green Lantern Says

Producer/DJ recounts his Watch the Throne concert experience, in his own words.
By DJ Green Lantern, as told to Rob Markman

DJ Green Lantern knows a thing or two about high-profile hip-hop tours. With a long production and DJing résumé that includes hitting the road with Eminem and Jay-Z, the Rochester, New York, disc jock took a trip down to Atlanta to see the second show of Hov and Kanye West's Watch the Tour Tour.

Friday night's opening show was a hit, and according to the Evil Genius, who was seated with his son in the second row, Saturday's second show didn't disappoint either. After the concert, Green Lantern checked in with MTV News to give his review. You are now watching the Throne:

Man, it was a real experience. They pulled out all the stops. They got a real crazy production, where it's these big cubes: One is in the middle of the arena, and the other one is right in front of the stage, and they both will be elevated into the air. The cubes have LEDs on 'em, so they're constantly changing colors and video. [Jay and Kanye] are standing on each [cube], and they rise and descend. At certain points in the show, Jay will be in the middle of the arena performing his verse to a song, and Kanye would be on the stage. It's very ill in that respect.

A lot of back-and-forth with their music in the sense of: a Kanye record, then a Jay record. Then they do a set together. They perform most of the album, most of Watch the Throne. It's a long show. It doesn't really seem long, but it's definitely two-plus hours. It's every hit imaginable between those guys, which is a lot. And a lot of stuff off the new album.

The video that goes to the songs, there are certain parts in the show that Jay and Kanye are really just watching the video. So you should watch the video too, because it has something to do with the song that's playing. It's dope.

From the video to the design, it's a lot of Kanye influence. You can see his taste in the set design and in the show, using his band, etc. ... Definitely a lot of Kanye. He gets deep with the artistic side, stuff that I can see, "OK, that's a Kanye thing."

The energy was crazy. They did "N-words in Paris" three times in a row. Three times in a row. Three times! Back-to-back-to-back. There's a piece at the end when they're going back and forth, song for song, and it's got, like, a girl theme to it. I don't want this to be a spoiler, so I'll just say the show is definitely a theatrical presentation.

You know how you saw them at the MTV [Video Music] Awards and they did "Otis"? It looked like they were having such a good time together and just hanging out, how they were just laughing and going on? That's definitely how the whole show was. But this was still literally the second show, so they're still getting the kinks out of it. But the chemistry is definitely 100 percent.

You just get so used to everybody bringing out guests [at their concerts], but when you sit through this show, you don't even feel that anybody was supposed to come out. They definitely didn't need anyone coming out. Being in Atlanta, a lot of people thought Tip might've came out for the "Paris (Remix)," but that wasn't the case. The whole arena was rocking, three times in a row. I saw [record exec] Steve Stoute say somewhere that the whole stadium turned into a club on that song, It definitely did.

I think it's definitely befitting of the two guys out on the tour, as far as the production level of what they're used to doing. Like Kanye, if you see his solo show, it's retarded. The last one he was doing, with the whole white theme onstage. And then Jay's last tour -- they've been upping the ante production-wise, video-wise, LEDs, and this is right there with it. It's on par with it, and they actually upped the ante with the big cubes and how they're using them. It's just ill. It's like those are the thrones, just rising, and they're rapping and it's like, "We are now watching the thrones."

I had my iPhone out, and I was recording during "H.A.M.," and I was going from the middle of the arena back to the stage. I was literally two rows from the stage, so the cube was right in my face. At that point, Kanye was on the stage, so you couldn't even see Kanye, because he's at the top of the cube, but I'm still going back and forth with the camera like, "Man, this is crazy!"

It's dope that they did that; it definitely adds showmanship, creativity, the whole theatrical element to it, and hip-hop needs that. Especially when we're going into an age where the show is paying the bills. The music is free, by and large, and hip-hop shows could really step up the production. If you look at this as an example, this could really motivate you and give you some inspiration if you're a hip-hop artist to say, "You know what? I'm gonna invest some money into a bigger stage show, a better stage show, and really give this show to the world and get booked more because of that."

I had a great time. I brought my [16-year old] son out with me. He said he just lost 10 pounds, sweating and jumping up and down. He had the time of his life. I brought him backstage, he met the guys, and it was a great night. Thumbs up on Watch the Throne live.

Celebrity Gossip Photographer Files Charges Against Demi Moore

A member of the paparazzi is making life even more difficult for Demi Moore these days.

Yesterday, following an appointment at a salon in West Hollywood, the actress was approached by a man with a camera. He alleges that Moore screamed obscenities at him and shoved him on the way to her car.

You can sort of judge the incident for yourself based on this photo.

Demi Moore: So Hungry!

This loser of a journalist has now filed battery charges against Moore, TMZ reports, although he has no visible injuries.

Still, the West Hollywood Sheriff's Department has been handed the complaint and open an investigation. Somehow, we blame Ashton Kutcher for this, too.
