LOS ANGELES — Reality TV star Kim Kardashian filed for divorce on Monday, just 72 days after marrying basketball player Kris Humphries in a lavish wedding.

Kardashian, 31, star of the TV show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents.

Ryan Seacrest, executive producer of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," said on his morning radio show that he had spoken to Kardashian and that she had confirmed the split.

"Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins," Seacrest added in a Twitter message.

Kardashian's publicist could not immediately be reached for comment.

The court papers, which were posted on celebrity news website TMZ.com, show Kardashian has asked the court to confirm that jewelry and other personal items, as well as earnings before and during the marriage, be considered separate property. It also notes the couple has a prenuptial agreement.

Kardashian and Humphries married on Aug. 20 in southern California in a wedding reported to have cost $10 million, after dating for about nine months. More than three million U.S. viewers watched a two-part TV special earlier this month called "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian event".

Kardashian is one of the highest-paid reality stars on U.S. television with 2010 earnings estimated at $6 million from her TV show, clothing line, perfume, jewelry and tanning cream and other product endorsements and appearances.

Claims of tension in the marriage have spread across entertainment media for the past week, with reports of 26-year-old New Jersey Nets player Humphries' reluctance to play his role in the Kardashian brand and differences over where the newlyweds should make their home.
