Kim Kardashian's family are "sticking together" following the announcement of her split from Kris Humphries.
The 31-year-old star filed divorce proceedings in Los Angeles today (31.10.11) after just 72 days of marriage, and her sister Kourtney has revealed those closest to her are all rallying round to give her support.
She wrote on twitter: "Our sister is going through a difficult time but we're a close family and are sticking together like always.
"We appreciate everyone's kindness and support. Kim, we love you.(sic)"
Fellow sibling Khloe hit out at those who had been "hurtful" about the proceedings but said her family are "strong" enough to survive the ordeal.
She said: "Reading some of these comments r so hurtful. Im grateful 4our fans who understand and r being respectful. Hate is disgusting. Love is everything.
"Thank God for family. We are strong and we will only become closer! I love YOU(sic)"
Kim and Kris - who married in a lavish star-studded ceremony in August - are believed to have been unable to come to an agreement on where they will live, with Kim wanting to stay in Los Angeles while keen to move to Minnesota.
