Kris Humphries and ex Kim Kardashian have been through a pretty rocky road to divorce with tons of drama (the tabloids, the maybe-twisted-truth of reality show Kourtney and Kim Take New York) and lots of rumored accusations, especially from the Humphries camp about a fake relationship and a wedding for fame and money. Now while the NBA pro remains single, Kardashian is already seeing another in-the-spotlight, but non-sports guy, Kanye West, and all eyes are on the progression of that romance. But does her willingness to date before divorce mean she doesn’t respect the institution of marriage? And when will Humphries have a new plus one on his arm?
“How do you ever trust another girl again. It will take awhile before Kris is able to do that,” admitted a friend of Kris Humphries’ situation to Hollywood Life. The insider has a point. The basketball player must be struggling with some trust issues after his 72-day marriage debacle. One thing’s certain, he will probably shy away from any big-name stars, especially of the reality show variety so there are no cameras cluttering up the romantic relationship. The friend seems to agree, too, saying, “Next time around when he dates anyone, it’s going to be very different.”
But the most interesting component of this insider’s revelations to Hollywood Life was the comment about the sanctity of marital union and that Kris Humphries won’t be jumping back into the dating game until he’s officially broken the tie from Kim Kardashian via a divorce or his preferred method: annulment. “He feels like he has to honor that commitment to his marriage. He took it very seriously,” the source said.
In the face of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West already tweeting love-note messages to each other, this source’s statements about Humphries’ current girl issues and his honor of and commitment to marriage (even one that ended so badly after 72 days) might just be meant as a backhanded jab at Kimye’s current union.
