Tyler announced that Kim will have a role in The Marriage Counsellor shortly before she ended her 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries, creating a buzz on social media sites.

Tyler said he wanted a younger cast, including Kim, to help attract younger viewers.

In a statement on his website, Tyler said he thought "it would be a very responsible of her to be a part of this film" and good for young people who see her as a role model to "see her in a film that is about what happens in life when you make the wrong choices".

Tyler asked for his fans' understanding.
