Gone is the giddy excitement of a new union and in its place festers an illustration of the kind of bitter enmity you'd expect to have been fostered over years of resentment.
Yet, incredibly, this scene occurred after Kim, 31 , and Kris, 26 , had been married for just 68 days.
Talk to the hand: Kim gesticulates at Kris while he leans back and lifts his head in defiance as they sit in her car in Hollywood on Thursday
Reality star Kim and NBA player Kris headed to Izakaya restaurant in Hollywood to indulge in Kim's favourite Japanese dishes.
But indicators that things were not right between the pair were already flashing wildly.
Kim, famed for her famous curves and fondness for figure-hugging dresses, was covered up in jeans, white shirt, long boots and navy fedora.
Nothing left to say: Kim stares ahead with a grimace as Kris makes to leave, she won't even look at him for a minute
Kris dressed in a manner which too reflected his internal disquiet.
The sometime Nets player, who is at a loose end due to the NBA lockdown, made no effort to smarten up and slouched to his date in jeans, trainers, hoodie and cap worn backwards.
Hit the road, Kris: Humphries leaves the luxury Sedan as his wife glowers within
But Kim responds with a angry hand gesture and a telling death stare.
Worse still, they don't seem to actually be talking that much but while the dialogue looks stilted, the anger is palpable
After the argument, they do share a kiss, but neither puts any heart into it.
The lack of passion is evident, this is a couple with nothing much even to say to each other anymore.
Defensive: Both Kim and Kris had chosen outfits which showed they were feeling defensive as they prepared for the meal
