A reconciliation between the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star and her estranged husband is ruled out although they are reportedly still talking on the phone and exchanging text messages.
Kim Kardashian may have filed for divorce from Kris Humphries, but it doesn't stop the estranged couple to remain in contact with one another. According to Radar Online, the "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" star and the New Jersey Nets player are still talking and exchanging text messages.
"Kim and Kris have spoken on the telephone, and are frequently exchanging text messages on their BlackBerrys," spilled a source close to the 31-year-old reality star. "Kim is absolutely numb and was truly surprised and shocked at the backlash she has gotten since she decided to file for divorce."
Although they are on speaking terms, the insider ruled out a possible reconciliation. "It's highly unlikely that Kim would want to get back together with Kris," the source said. "Kris is in Minnesota, and the more time that goes on, Kim clearly sees that they are just two completely different people, that never should have gotten married."
"Even though Kris said earlier in the week he would do whatever it would take to save his marriage, he is now accepting that the relationship is over," continued the source, before noting that Kim "has been told by her friends that she needs to put herself first, for a change."
The insider added, "Kim is very hard working, and professional. It's very hard for her to not work. She has commitments, and she wants to honor them, but her friends are concerned about her, and are urging her to take some much needed time off, away from the spotlight to process what has happened."
Kim, who married Kris on August 20, filed for divorce in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, October 31. A day afterward, she took to her blog to defend her decision. "First and foremost, I married for love," part of her message read. "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!"
The former girlfriend of Reggie Bush later said that she followed her heart in making the decision. During an appearance on Australian show "Sunrise", she said, "I think when you know so deep in your heart that you just have to listen to your intuition and follow your heart, there's no right or wrong thing to do, so I really believe that."
