Kris Humphries Brushes Off Kim Kardashian’s Nude Paper Magazine Cover

Kim KardashianKris Humphries’ 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian will forever haunt the NBA big man.

Humphries, an ex-Boston Celtic who now plays for the Washington Wizards, not only is exposed to heckling fans everywhere he goes. He’s also forced to answer questions about Kardashian whenever she does something newsworthy, like pose nude.

Kardashian made waves this week — broke the Internet, if you will — when Paper Magazine released an issue featuring a cover in which she bares all. Humphries, who broke up with Kardashian three years ago, was asked about the photos Thursday during a radio interview with WJFK-FM in Washington.

“Well, you know, I’ve always been a basketball-first kind of guy. And had a lot of success through everything,” Humphries said. “For me, it’s just basketball, and that’s where my outlet is, especially now. I’m on a team that’s winning, and we’re going to be in the playoffs and do all that. It feels good. But everything else, I don’t really pay a lot of attention to.”

Kardashian, a reality TV star, now is married to hip-hop mogul Kanye West. But while both her and Humphries continue to do their own thing, the 11-year NBA veteran constantly faces outside noise centered on his past. It’s up to him to block it out.

“No, I mean, a lot of times I don’t even know what’s going on,” Humphries said. “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.”

Kardashian might no longer matter in Humphries’ world. But his world will never be the same because of his relationship with Kim K.
