Reality star married Kris Humphries in a televised E! special 72 days ago.
By Jocelyn Vena
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries said “I do” in an elaborate, very public ceremony over the summer, and now comes word that the reality starlet and her basketball player hubby are calling it quits just 72 days after tying the knot.
TMZ reported that Kim filed for divorce from Humphries on Monday (October 31), coincidentally the scariest day of the year. Sources told the site that Kim is not seeking an annulment and cites “irreconcilable differences” as the cause for the split.
The couple reportedly have a prenuptial agreement and celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser has been tapped to represent Kardashian. According to TMZ, the pair’s $10 million wedding cost approximately $138,888 a day as of October 31. A rep for Kim had not responded to MTV News’ request for comment as of press time.
However, Ryan Secreast, who produces the reality star’s E! shows, confirmed the news on Twitter, writing, “Yes @kimkardashian is filing for divorce this morning. I touched base with her, getting a statement in just a few mins.”
The news comes as several tabloids have been reporting on Kim and Kris’ marital woes. Kardashian and NBA player Humphries married on August 20 in California in a lavish ceremony in front of friends, family and E! cameras. “The dresses were so gorgeous, and watching those beautiful girls walk down the aisle … they are absolutely stunning,” guest Julianne Hough gushed to MTV News after the ceremony. “To just see them walking down the aisle was just beautiful. And then little Mason, Kourtney’s little boy, he kind of stole the show.”
The beginning of Kris and Kim’s marriage will be documented on the second season of “Kourtney & Kim Take New York,” which kicks off on November 27. In previews for the show, fans have gotten a peek at the short-lived marriage. “How am I going to have my career and live in Minnesota?” Kim asks Kris when he suggests they move to his hometown. His response? “Baby, by the time you have kids and they’re in school, nobody will probably care about you.”

‘It was more about romance than hot-and-heavy action,’ Bill Condon tells MTV News about toning down sex scene for PG-13 rating.
By Amy Wilkinson
Was the first cut of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1″ racy enough to be slapped with an R rating?
“It was so weird, it didn’t even feel like we were doing a ‘Twilight’
film,” she recalled to the British mag. “I was like, ‘Bella! What are you doing? Wow! What is happening here?!’ It was very surreal. We [originally] got rated R. They recut it.”
Though director Bill Condon couldn’t confirm the R rating when MTV News recently spoke with him on the phone, he did reveal the edits necessary to earn a more teen-friendly PG-13 for the November 18 release.
“It’s almost clinical the kind of strict guidelines [the MPAA] have about anything that appears to be — how do I put it delicately?
That appears to be, let’s call it thrusting. In fact, you know, it was so much more about romance than it was about hot-and-heavy action, so it was a very kind of simple adjustment to make.”
If re-editing the infamous sex scene was one of the simplest items on Condon’s honeymoon to-do list, one of the most difficult was scouting the location: the secluded Isle Esme owned by Carlisle Cullen.
“We went to Brazil where it was at, that felt important to us,” he said. “There are very few houses built on the water because it’s against the law. So they’re mostly built up, so it was hard to find a house that was like that. It took us — wow — we were five hours outside of Rio and then a boat trip of 40 minutes to get to this one island that had the house that we wanted.”
It was a good thing Condon was satisfied with the locale seeing as he and the crew spent several unexpected extra hours there.
“We spent four days there and one night, when we had this incredible hurricane and couldn’t get off the island,” he said. “Eighty of us slept in the house on the floor and in bathtubs. It was incredible.”

Singer performs her latest Born This Way track, reveals video details in India.
By Jocelyn Vena
Back in April, Lady Gaga and the world of Indian pop culture kicked off their love affair when Indian composers Salim-Sulaiman produced a remix of Gaga’s smash “Born This Way.” And Gaga kept the fire burning during a recent trek to the country.
On Sunday night at a Formula One afterparty in Greater Noida, Gaga performed a Bollywood version of her Born This Way single “Marry the Night,” according to Aceshowbiz.com.
“I feel like I’ve waited a long time to come here. And I feel very grateful,” she told the excited crowd at the party. “For the first time ever, I’m going to sing ‘Marry the Night.’ ”
Gaga sat at a piano and played a slowed-down version of the song, accompanied by a sitar. Before the show, in a chat with NDTV in New Delhi, Gaga described it as “a performance that is unique and specific just for India.”
In addition to performing the song live for the first time, she had another treat for her Indian fans, revealing for the first time some new details about her video for the “Marry the Night.”
“Well, I can share exclusively with you that I directed this video myself. So this is my first directorial debut,” she told NDTV. Until now, she has co-directed with her Haus of Gaga and her creative director Laurieann Gibson.
“But it has been a wonderful experience. I worked alongside director of photography Darius Khondji, who is an absolutely amazing DP, and I worked with Gideon Ponte, who is an incredible art director,” she explained. “So I’m looking forward to sharing this autobiographical video with the world. I’m very excited. It’s my favorite song on the album.”
As for what’s next for Gaga and India, she tweeted out several photos of herself around town, with the message, “Screw Hollywood. It’s all about Bollywood.”
During her interview, she shared that she hasn’t ruled out some Bollywood-themed projects, explaining, “There’s nothing in the works right now, but I love the culture here and I love Bollywood so who knows?”

Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures will feature previously unreleased tracks.
By Gil Kaufman
The world will finally get to hear the music Amy Winehouse was working on before her unexpected death earlier this year. According to a press release from her English label, a posthumous collection of unheard studio tracks, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, will be released on December 5.
The 12 tracks on the disc were put together by Winehouse’s longtime collaborators, producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, and will include songs she recorded before, during and after the releases of her two studio albums, 2003′s Frank and her smash 2006 breakthrough Back to Black. “It was said by all who worked with Amy that she never sang or played a song the same way twice,” read the release announcing the disc. “It quickly became apparent to Salaam and Mark that they had a collection of songs that deserved to be heard, a collection of songs that were a fitting testament to Amy the artist and, as importantly, Amy their friend.”
The disc is a “chronicle of her musical development” and will feature alternate takes of previously released songs, including a demo version of “Wake Up Alone” and mellower takes of “Tears Dry on Their Own” and “Valerie,” as well as her recently released Tony Bennett duet, “Body & Soul.”
It will also have a number of covers, such as the Shirelles’ “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow,” Donny Hathaway’s “A Song for You” (with just Amy and her guitar, recorded at her London home in the spring of 2009 in the midst of the singer’s struggles with drugs and alcohol) and a 2002 reggae version of the classic ’60s doo-wop song by Ruby & the Romantics “Our Day Will Come.”
Winehouse died in July at age 27 as a result of excessive alcohol intake.
“I spent so much time chasing after Amy, telling her off, that I never realized what a true genius she was,” her father, Mitch Winehouse, said. “It wasn’t until I sat down with the rest of the family and listened to this album that I fully appreciated the breadth of Amy’s talent, from jazz standards to hip-hop songs, it really took my breath away.”
Among the unreleased songs are “Halftime” and “The Girl From Ipanema,” which were cut during sessions for Winehouse’s debut, Frank. The standard “Ipanema,” in fact, was the first song an 18-year-old Winehouse sang when she flew to Miami to record with Remi, who said in the release that Amy’s reinterpretation of the bossa nova classic made him realize that, “I was dealing with a very special talent. Her approach to the song was so young and fresh, it really inspired the rest of our sessions.”
Mitch Winehouse said he’d never heard the “incredibly beautiful” song “Halftime” before, but that if the family “had felt that this album wasn’t up to the standard of Frank and Back to Black, we would never have agreed to release it and we believe it will stand as a fitting tribute to Amy’s musical legacy.”
One of the most recent tracks is a duet with Amy’s hip-hop pal Nas titled “Like Smoke,” which was recorded in May 2008. Another unheard song, “Between the Cheats,” is reportedly a take on Winehouse’s troubled marriage to ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, recorded in May 2008 for possible inclusion on her third album. Fans will also hear “Best Friends,” a Remi-produced track from 2003 that used to serve as Amy’s live show opener.
Winehouse had been working on her follow-up to Black for two years before her death, but it is unknown if the upcoming release represents the totality of the music she recorded during that period, of if there could be another collection in the offing sometime in the future.
Some of the proceeds from the sales of the album will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up by the singer’s family to fight addiction.
