Kris Humphries has remained relatively low-key since his split from Kim Kardashian , but the basketball player sat down with “Good Morning America” on Friday (December 9) to finally speak out about his divorce from the reality starlet.
“For me, it’s just certain things happen in life and you’ve got to move forward,” he said. “Through everything I’m just focused on family and preparing for basketball. Basketball has always been something I’ve taken really serious and I continue to do that and I’m just moving forward.”
While the couple, who had been married for 72 days before they confirmed their split in October, are no longer together, their relationship is playing out on the current season of “Kourtney & Kim Take New York.”
“I can’t say for sure or not for sure [if the cameras hurt my marriage],” Humphries said on “GMA.” “It’s the only time I’ve been married. I’ve been in the NBA since I was 19 years old, but it’s a different level.
“I’m focused on just what I can control. I don’t really play into all the gossip and things that take place, but that’s life,” continued the currently free agent, who also has a foundation dedicated to fighting childhood obesity. “I’ve been doing a lot of things with my foundation and spending time with my family and working on my game. Hopefully I’ll be on a team soon and get ready to go.”
Humphries, who recently filed for annulment after Kim filed for divorce, also baked cookies on the show with his mom and kept most of his talk about Kim and the split focused on the here and now and not so much on the events that led to the split.
“Really right now I’m focused on basketball and other things will take care of themselves. It’s a great day for the NBA and the fans,” he said. “The only things I watch on TV of myself is playing basketball.
I’ve never really been one to watch the show on TV. For me my focus is just basketball, my foundation, my family and moving through life.”
