Kim Kardashian's ex-husband says at 'Man of Steel' premiere in New York that 'it feels great' to leave 18 months of divorce proceedings behind.
Kris Humphries is now a single man. After he and ex-wife Kim Kardashian finalized divorce recently, the basketball player is apparently ready to start a new life. The 28-year-old athlete, however, is currently not seeing anyone.
"I don't have any [girlfriends] right now," he said at "Man of Steel" premiere on Monday, June 10 in New York, as quoted by Us Weekly. "I'm happy. I've got a big smile on my face," he said of life after divorce. He continued saying, "It feels great" to leave 18 months of the highly reported divorce proceedings.
The Brooklyn Nets power forward added that he learned a lot from his split with the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star. "You can't force a love life. I'm just focused on training and basketball," he explained. "I think you learn something all the time," he said of his previous love story. "I'm just focused on me and having a good time."
Kris and Kim got married on August 20, 2011. However, their union only lasted for 72 days as the couple announced that they called it quits on Halloween. "After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever but sometimes things don't work out as planned," Kim said of her separation from Kris back then.
The couple reached a divorce settlement in April. Later on June 3, a judge at Los Angeles Superior Court signed the official paperwork to dissolve their marriage.
