Kris Humphries Talks Kim Kardashian on GMA: “I Don’t Play Into Gossip” (VIDEO)


By Michael Lewittes


Kris Humphries appeared for his first TV interview on network television since his split from Kim Kardashian after 72 days of marriage, and he opened up about their breakup.

Humphries, who was on “Good Morning America” on Friday with his mother Debra, deflected most questions about his and Kardashian’s failed union, but said he’s “moving forward” and “focused on basketball.”


A free agent, Humphries is waiting to hear whether he’s been picked up by a NBA team.

When asked how he’s doing post-split, Humphries said, “Certain things happen in life, and you have to move forward.”

“I’m focused on basketball… Other things will take care of itself,” he noted.

Humhpries’ mom, who was on to do a cooking segment with her son and to discuss their foundation to fight child obesity, noted that after Kardashian filed for divorce, “The important thing is to stay close as family through the ups and downs that come, and it’s our fath in God that carries us through all of these times.”

She added, “We try to focus on being thankful… We’re not trying to look back.”

As the segment concluded, Humphries responded to a question about whether he still loves Kardashian: “I’m focused on just what I can control, which is ready to play ball.”

He also said what he’d like the public to know about him is that “I love to give back. I’m a fun guy. I don’t play into the gossip.”
