Los Angeles - Reality TV star Kim Kardashian on Tuesday dismissed reports that she profited from her televised wedding to Kris Humphries, only one day after filing for divorce from the basketball player.
"There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. I'm so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding, and I'll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation," Kardashian wrote in a message posted on her website.
The 31-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians TV star filed for divorce from Humphries, 26, on Monday after 72 days of marriage. Their wedding in August was reported to have cost $10m, and it aired in October on the E! network in a special called Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event.
Kardashian explained that her desire to settle down, along with the pressures of having a reality TV show, may have held her back from declining Humphries proposal of marriage.
"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 said.
This is the second divorce for Kardashian, who was previously married to music producer Damon Thomas for four years, separating in 2004.
Kardashian is one of the highest-paid reality stars on US television with 2010 earnings estimated at $6m from her TV show, clothing line, perfume, jewellery and tanning cream and other product endorsements and appearances.
