Washington: Kim Kardashian’s sudden divorce announcement might have blind-sided her soon-to-be ex-husband, Kris Humphries, but one of her former friends didn’t at all seem surprised by the spilt as according to him the socialite “has a mass craving for attention.”
Jonathan Jaxson, owner of JJ Public Relations, who once worked as the 31-year-old socialite’s publicist, hailed her a “ very selfish” person, who is just concerned about her image in public.
“She’s very selfish and she knows what she wants her image to be,” Radar Online quoted Jaxson as saying.
“She knew marriage was a bad P.R. move as her value has dropped since the wedding,” he said.
The publicist has known Kardashian since 2007 and helped her through the sex tape scandal and her relationship with NFL star Reggie Bush, both of which managed to catapult her star power.
“When we first met it was all about getting publicity and turning her into a star,” Jaxson said.
“I staged so many paparazzi moments for her. I arranged for her to be coming out of a jewellery store and made it look like Reggie was planning to propose to her.
“She would call and tell me to alert the press so there were cameras there whenever anything happened.
“Reggie cottoned onto it and he didn’t like it, that was part of the reason they split up. He couldn’t handle the fame and her desire for it,” he said.
Akin to Bush, the 26-year-old basketball player also didn``t like being in the spotlight all the time and having cameras following his every move.
“Kris just wanted a wife, he didn’t care about the rest of the stuff,” he added.
