Kris Jenner Says Kim Kardashian Will Give Post-Divorce Interview After 'the Dust Settles' (Video)
The reality star and her soon-to-be ex-husband, Kris Humphries, signed a prenup that banned them from saying anything negative about each other, though comments hint at an end date on the media blackout.
It seems Kim Kardashian will be speaking out about her divorce from Kris Humphries after all.
A source close to the Kardashian camp recently told The Hollywood Reporter that it was not clear whether a specific time frame had been set, or if there are loopholes, including a clause that would allow Kardashian to defend false allegations made against her.
But it appears that there is an end date on the media blackout. Her mom, Kris Jenner, told Extra on Monday that her daughter will open up about her decision to file from divorce after only 72 days of marriage once "the dust settles."
"She needs to do what she's doing now and cry and figure it out," Jenner added. "She's just trying to follow her heart, and she's going to be OK."
The story would have the potential to earn the family -- notorious for making money off selling engagement and wedding photos to the weekly magazines -- a significant payday that could reach an estimated $300,000.
It also hasn't stopped Jenner from speaking about the impending divorce as she promotes her new book, Kris Jenner… And All Things Kardashian, in recent appearances on Extra, Today, The View and Good Morning America.
Kardashian headed to Australia on Nov. 1 to promote the Kardashian Kollection for Sears, though she promptly fled due to a barrage of media questions regarding her split. In one of her few appearances, the reality star tip-toed around divorce questions, delicately replying that, “There’s really no right thing to do. I don’t think I’m ready to get into the details of that.”
For his part, Humphries released two statements. “I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce,” Humphries told E! News. “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” A second statement went to TMZ.
Certainly many outlets have been vying for Kim’s first interview, though the family’s tight-knit relationship with E! could bode well for the network, which is home to all Ryan Seacrest-produced Kardashian programming. When news of the Kim’s divorce filing broke, E! was the first to confirm, while other networks were forced to wait before receiving correspondence from her reps.
