(Newser) – The past month just hasn't been a good one for Kim Kardashian: Now she's on Australia's immigration watch list. Apparently the Land Down Under is not happy with her because she's breached her visa requirements three times, the Daily Telegraph reports. Most recently, she applied for a tourist visa when she went to Australia after filing for divorce—but she was actually in town for business, launching a line of handbags. The Department of Immigration, irked at that breach, looked back and found she did the same thing last year and in 2007, leading it to place her on its watch list.

Meanwhile, Kris Humphries followed through with his plan to seek an annulment, filing for one yesterday, TMZ reports. His reasoning? Fraud. Sources say that Humphries was not staging anything, but Kardashian was just using him because she needed a groom for her reality show and "once they were finished taping, she just didn't need a groom anymore." An attorney tells People it could take "many months" for a judge to decide between a divorce and an annulment, but a source says Kardashian would actually rather get an annulment, too. If one is not granted, Humphries wants a legal separation rather than divorce. Both list the date of separation as Oct. 31. For those desperately aching for a new Kardashian fairytale, take heart: Sources tell Entertainment Tonight that sis Kourtney and Scott Disick—who just announced they are expecting again—will get married any day now.
