Kris Humphries broke his silence this morning, speaking out for the first time about his much-publicized wedding and split with Kim Kardashian after only 72 days of marriage.
“I’m just focused on family and preparing for basketball,” he said during an appearance on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
Asked about what he’s doing now, Humphries, 26, remarked, “Just moving forward.”
As for Kardashian filing for divorce, Humphries dodged the question on how he reacted to that decision.
“For me it’s just, certain things happen in life and you have to move forward,” he said.
On whether Humphries still loves Kim, Humphries laughed and remarked, “I’m focused on just what I can control, which is being ready to play ball and supporting my mom and her cookie baking.”
Humphries, a free agent center who spent part of the last two seasons with the Nets, said that having his wedding and marriage play out on TV was not the reason for the split.
“I can’t say for sure. It’s the only time I’ve been married,” she said. “I’ve been in front of cameras on the NBA since I was 19. It’s a different level, but for me it’s about moving forward and give back to my foundation, focusing on childhood obesity. Life is more about how you can help other people and making the most out of your platform.”
Humphries also said he doesn’t watch “Kourtney and Kim Take New York” on TV these days.
“The thing for me, the only things I watch of myself is playing basketball, games films, stuff like that. I’ve never been someone who really watched the show on TV,” he said.
Humphries repeated several times that he’s “focused on basketball” and did not go into detail about his request for an annulment.
Humphries’ mother Debra, who sat beside him, agreed, saying her son and the rest of the familyare not dwelling on the past.
“We’re not trying to look back, but focusing on moving forward,” she said.
