Was Kris Humphries blindsided?

The NBA player says he's reeling from Kim Kardashian's decision to file for divorce after just 72 days of marriage.

"I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce," he said in a statement Monday.

In August, Humphries, 26, and Kardashian, 31, exchanged vows in front of friends and family during a lavish ceremony at a private estate in Montecito, Calif., in front of 440 guests.

And despite her decision to call it quits, Humphries isn't prepared to give up so easily.

"I'm committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents," he says in the statement, "and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make it work."
