In an interview with "Good Morning America" Friday, pro basketball player Kris Humphries was adamant about being ready to move on from his two months of marriage to reality star Kim Kardashian.
"Certain things happen in life and you've got to move forward," 26-year-old Humphries said. "Through everything I'm just focused on my family and preparing for basketball."
As he does that, though, the "reality" of his relationship with 31-year-old Kim is being played out for viewers on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" - not that he's tuning in.
"The only thing I really watch on TV of myself is playing basketball," Humphries said. "I've never really been someone to watch the show on TV and stuff like that. My focus is really basketball, my foundation and family."
As for whether being on the show and surrounded by cameras impacted their relationship, the basketball player says he can't say for sure, since "it's the only time I've been married."
But judging from his response to Kim's divorce filing, that's a fact Humphries would like to change. Rather than sign the divorce papers, the athlete has filed for a separation from Kim and is seeking to annul the 72-day marriage on the grounds of fraud.
The legalities will work out on their own, he said. "Life is more about how you can help other people and making the most out of your platform, so that's what I'm really focused on," he told "GMA."
After reiterating again (as he did many, may times during the interview) that he's "moving forward," Humphries was asked if he still loves Kim. He responded with a chuckle, "I'm just focused on what I can control, which is being able to play ball and supporting my mom."
Similarly, he's not worried about how his foray into Kardashian-land will affect his reputation. "If people know me and know who I am and what I stand for, I think they know that I love to give back and that I'm a fun guy," he said. "I don't play into the gossip and all the things that take place."
