Kris Humphries gave his first television interview on Good Morning America since his split from Kim Kardashian.
Kris Humphries, 26, feebly attempted to deflect questions about his personal life on Good Morning America today.
The NBA star was grilled by host Josh Elliot, who would not let up as Kris Humphries tried to turn the conversation around to sport and charity awareness.
Sources close to Kris Humphries say he is “livid” in wake of the sit down chat and he was not expecting to be so heavily laden with questions about his estranged wife Kim Kardashian, who split from him after just 72 days of marriage.
Kris Humphries was accompanied by his mother Debra, who held his hands at times during the chat.
The NBA star repeatedly avoided questions about his divorce from Kim Kardashian, 31, only saying he was trying to “move forward” with his life when asked if he was still in love with her.
“I’m not focused on that, right now I’m focused on basketball,” Kris Humphries said when asked about his proposed annulment from his short-lived marriage.
Kris Humphries also revealed that he is not watching himself on the Kardashian’s reality show, Kourtney & Kim Take New York.
When asked by the host if it was tough for him to watch himself on the reality show – considering he already knew the ending – Kris Humphries said: “The only things I watch of myself on TV are me playing basketball.
“I have never really been someone to watch the show, on TV, or anything like that.”
Kris Humphries’ mother added: “The important thing is that we stay close as a family – it’s our faith in God that carries us through all of these times.
“We have so much to be thankful for right now. We’re looking forward not backward.”
TMZ reports Kris Humphries only agreed to take part in the show to plug his “foundation” and his mother’s “cookie bake”.
Good Morning America sources told TMZ that no ground rules were set on the line of questioning.
Kris Humphries says that he is fighting childhood obesity with his foundation: “Life is more about giving back,” the NBA star said.
When asked if he thought his public image had taken a hit, Kris Humphries replied: “If people know me and they know who I am and what I stand for I think that they’ll know that I love to give back, and I, you know, I’m a fun guy.
“You know I don’t really play into all the gossip and things that take place, but you know, that’s life.”
