Everything Kris Humphries Has Said About Kim Kardashian Since Their Split

posted in: Mississippi News | 0

Oh-so-subtle burns! Kris Humphries has remained relatively tight-lipped about his short-lived marriage to Kim Kardashian. However, he has let some shade slip here and there throughout the years.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star began dating the basketball player in December 2010, and the pair were engaged by the following May. “He just has a really good heart,” Kardashian told Us Weekly in February 2011. “There has to be trust and honesty and chemistry. If you don’t have any of those, it’s never going to work.”

The reality star wed Humphries in August 2011. A mere 72 days after their lavish nuptials, Kardashian filed for divorce.

The KKW Beauty founder opened up about her failed marriage in May 2017. “At the time I just thought, ‘Holy s–t, I’m 30 years old. I better get this together. I better get married.’ I think a lot of girls do go through that, where they freak out thinking they’re getting old and all their friends are having kids,” she admitted during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “So it was more of that situation. But I knew on the honeymoon it wasn’t going to work out.”

Kardashian later revealed that she was not the only family member to experience a quick marriage. “I just found this pic of my beautiful grandma MJ at her 1st wedding,” she wrote via Instagram in December 2018. “It lasted just 2.5 months and her family spent all they had on this wedding. She felt so bad but followed her heart. Kinda sounds familiar lol.”

The Selfish author moved on with husband Kanye West, who she married in May 2014. The couple welcomed daughter North in June 2013, son Saint in December 2015 and daughter Chicago in January 2018.

Meanwhile, Us reported in October 2018 that Humphries is “enjoying the single life” and “truly wants zero association” with Kardashian.

Speaking Out

Humphries broke his silence about his divorce in December 2011. He admitted during an appearance on Good Morning America that he was “moving forward.” When asked if he was still in love with Kardashian, he replied with a laugh: “I’m focused on just what I can control, which is being ready to play ball and supporting my mom and her cookie baking.”

The Real Deal

The NBA player addressed speculation that his romance with the E! personality was faked for ratings. “To me, it was real,” he told Access Hollywood in February 2012. “I would never go through something and do something that wasn’t real or I didn’t believe in, so I can really only speak for myself in terms of that.”

Break the Internet

Kardashian’s highly publicized November 2014 Paper magazine cover did not catch her ex-husband’s attention. “A lot of times I don’t even know what’s going on,” he told Washington radio station 106.7 when pressed about the spread. “I’m on ESPN and basketball websites and stuff like that. I’m not someone who’s paying attention to things that don’t really matter in my world.” In her interview, the reality star called her marriage “just one of those life lessons that you have to learn.”

Coming Clean

While announcing his retirement from the NBA in March 2019, Humphries reflected on his marriage. “I should have known what I was getting into,” he wrote in a blog post for The Player’s Tribune. “I was definitely naïve about how much my life was going to change. … There’s definitely a lot about that world that is not entirely real. But our actual relationship was 100% real. When it was clear that it wasn’t working … what can I say? It sucked. It’s never easy to go through the embarrassment of something like that — with your friends, with your family…. But when it plays out so publicly, in front of the world, it’s a whole other level. It was brutal.”
