Kim Kardashian, who announced she was divorcing her husband Kris Humphries on Monday, has cancelled appearances in Australia to fly home with her sister Khloe, cutting the trip short.
Kardashian was slated to appear at the Melbourne Cup Carnival for Swisse vitamins marquee on Saturday, for which she was reportedly to be paid $150,000. After she cancelled, reps tried to convince Khloe to take her place but she refused. A spokesman for Swisse said:
“All indications were that Kim wanted to fulfill all of her commitments once she landed in Australia but has obviously changed her mind given her very difficult personal challenges at the moment.”
The newlywed had only been married for 72 days when she filed for divorce. “I love our fan base out here. Of course I do really want some time to myself and it has been tough,” she said. “But I didn’t wanna bail on everyone and, you know, skip out on this commitment.”
I’d say giving yourself some time would be a good idea. We don’t want to look like a fame whore, do we?
