It will come as no surprise to those who have been watching the Kim Kardashian divorce fallout, but numerous people think her 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries was done for the cameras, not for love. But it's a little surprising that one of those people is Kardashian's own ex-publicist.

Jonathon Jaxson told the New York Post that the reality star "knew weeks before getting married she didn't want to do it," and added "She's never gotten over [ex Reggie Bush]."

Jaxson also said he and Kardashian staged a scene in which she went to a jewelry store and tried to make it look as if Bush was proposing marriage. "It was calculated to a T and then it was leaked to a magazine," he told the Post. Jaxson claims that Bush wasn't in on the staging and that such events convinced the football star to break up with Kardashian.

The Post also quotes Jaxson as saying fame was always Kardashian's goal, and saying that while she herself did not leak her infamous sex tape, she "wasn't devastated" when it did happen.

He hints that he's speaking out now because he wasn't paid, the Post reports, so factor that into his comments however you like.

Update: And now Kardashian has hired a lawyer to sue Jaxson, and says he wasn't really her publicist, just worked with her on a blog.
