Kardashian flees before race day

KIM Kardashian has reportedly fled Australia just three days after announcing the end of her 72-day marriage with basketballer Kris Humphries,

The 31-year-old reality TV star arrived in Sydney with her sister Khloe on Wednesday to launch a range of handbags and also appeared on Sunrise.

The early departure meant that Kim had to cancel her booked appearance at health supplement company Swisse's marquee at the races tomorrow, forfeiting her fee that's rumoured to be up to $150,000.

Swisse spokesman Mitch Catlin said they receieved an email cancellation from the star's management Thursday afternoon, citing "emotional issues" as an explanation for her no-show.

Mr Catlin told FOX FM it  felt like a "slap in the face".
