Kim Kardashian has come out with a new, lengthy statement on her official website, one that addresses her fans and seeks to quell the talk that she's an attention-starved, money-hungry, sorry excuse for a human being who crapped all over the integrity of marriage in order to earn a few bucks.
The message, apparently revised with a few edits prior to the final cut, reads:
This is probably the hardest thing aside from Ray J I've ever had to write. I see all of the support and I am so thankful for my fans, friends and family who are helping me through this difficult time.I am trying not to read all the different media reports but it's hard not to see all the negative ones. First and foremost, I married for love. I can't believe I even have to defend this. I would not have spent so much time on something just for a TV show! That's my producer's job! And, yes, I just insulted everyone who actually does spend a ton of time making TV shows.
I share so much of my life on a reality show, that contemplating whether to even film my wedding was a tough decision to make, and maybe it turned out to not be the smartest decision. But it's who I am! We filmed Kourtney giving birth, Khloe getting married, break ups, make ups, our best moments and our worst moments. These were all real moments that only required six or seven takes at most. That's what makes us who we are. We share, we give, we love and we are open to Ray J pounding us on camera!
Everyone that knows me knows that I'm a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. I believed in love and the dream of what I wanted so badly. I felt like I was on a fast roller coaster and couldn't get off with Ray J when now I know I probably should have. 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. Yes, I said in the paragraph above that everything we filmed was "real" and now I'm saying the TV show got in the way of my relationship, but you like me for my breasts, not my common sense, let's be honest.
I'm being honest here and I hope you respect my courage and buy my fragrance because this isn't easy to go through. But I do know that I have to follow my mom's marketing recommendations heart. I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn't turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for.
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. Huh? The money I made off selling the coverage rights to E! and photo rights to People? Ummm... look at my boobs!
I'm sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart. I believe now that I really am and I will be the next time I Tweet about a product you really need to have.
