According to sources, the reason for the split between the New Jersey Nets player and the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was over where they were going to live after the wedding.
Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ ... one of the main points of contention in the marriage was where the couple would live after all of the wedding madness finally died down.
We're told Kris was passionate about eventually settling down in Minnesota, where he's from ... and believed Kim was on board with the plan. She wasn't.
Sources tell us Kim -- who's from L.A. -- wants to stay near her family ... and she also feels that staying in town is the best thing for her career.
We wish Kim and Kris the best during this painful and public time.
