We all speculated as much, but now it has been confirmed. Sort of. Kim Kardashian staged her entire wedding to Kris Humphries, claims her ex-publicist Jonathan Jaxson. The New York Post quotes Jaxson as saying, “She knew weeks before getting married she didn’t want to do it,” he alleges. “She’s never gotten over [ex Reggie Bush].”
Jaxson claims that he worked with Kim from 2007-2009, and in that time he helped Kim stage many “important” events in her life, all in order to boost exposure and drum up interest in the reality TV star. Jaxson says that he was behind the idea to act as though Reggie Bush proposed to Kim by walking out of a jewelry store with a diamond ring that she already owned.
But as much as we all believe him, Jaxson is merely speculating about Kim’s wedding being entirely staged. While it’s true that he has significant insight into Kim’s psyche and motivations, he was not actually her publicist during any of the 72-day debacle. So what do you think? Do you give credence to Kim’s former publicist’s notion that the wedding was a sham, or do you believe Kim’s version, that she was really in love but only married after getting caught up in her own hoopla?
