Pastor wants to stop Kim's divorce

2011-11-01 12:32

Los Angeles - The man who married Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries wants them to stop their divorce.

Pastor Joel Johnson - who officiated the couple's wedding ceremony on August 20 - would like to sit down and talk with the pair, who announced their split on Monday, as he is upset by the decision.

He told "I'm sad to hear this. Why would Kim do this? I would love to connect with Kim and try to pull the reigns back and redirect this energy in a more redemptive way."

Totally impressed

Joel, who is Kris' Pastor from childhood, spent time with the couple prior to their ceremony and he reveals he thought their feelings for each other were "genuine".

He said: "I've known Kris a long time and gone into some deep places with him. I felt really good about the meeting. I felt what I experienced was genuine. I feel for both of them. I think two of the hardest things to deal with are wealth and fame and they have both. I knew it would be a challenging one for them.

"So many people condemned the wedding before it happened saying it wouldn't last. But when I spoke to Kris, I knew where his heart was and I said I wanted to meet Kim personally. I was totally impressed with Kim."

Kim, 31, filed for divorce on MOnday at the Los Angeles Superior Court after just 72 days of marriage.
