We all know that Kim Kardashian got divorced from NBA star Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage. But did you know that this was actually Kardashian’s second marriage?

The reality star told Marie Claire just weeks before the divorce that one of the reasons her marriage to Kris Humphries was going to work out was because she “learned so much” from her first marriage to music producer Damon Thomas when she was just 19.

She says she learned “who I wanted to be, who I never wanted to be.” She also “learned how to cook and do a lot of other marital things.” Her 2000 marriage to Thomas lasted about four years.

When Marie Claire asked her why she was marrying Humphries after only knowing him for 10 months, Kardashian said, “Why wait? It’s fun to have a partner who understands your life and lets you be you.”

Tensions seemed to mount on their E! reality show ‘Kourtney & Kim Take New York’ as their lifestyles seemed to clash almost from the get-go. Then again, there are rumors that the entire marriage was staged for the cameras. Kardashian said this week that she is going to sue a former publicist who called the entire marriage “staged.”
