Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
While Kim Kardashian
says she'd like nothing more than to put her ill-fated marriage to Kris Humphries
behind her, she's not quite ready to divulge more about a current relationship.
Asked by Today show
co-host Ann Curry in a live studio interview Friday if she and Kanye West
are an item
, Kardashian, 31, would say only, "Kanye and I have been friends for years. ... You never know what the future holds."
Part of Kardashian's reticence might stem from, as she herself mentioned, the fact that she and Humphries are still legally married
On Friday, the reality star said, "We are still going through a divorce, so there's not really much that I'm allowed to talk about. Out of respect for [Humphries], I try not to talk about stuff involving him and regarding that situation."
Kardashian also said she no longer pays attention to tabloid gossip. "I haven't looked on the Internet in a while," she told Curry. "It's a new rule of mine."
But, she described speculation that her 72-day marriage
to Humphries was a sham
"I love really hard. I fall hard, and I followed my heart," Kardashian said. "When things don't work out, that's sometimes just how life is. What's the point in dragging something out ... when you know that it's just not it for you?"
Humphries, for his part, has requested that the marriage be annulled
on grounds of "fraud."
"There's certain guidelines on how you can get [an annulment], and I'm not sure we fall under that," Kardashian said, also telling Curry about the divorce: "I really believe this whole experience has changed me for the better."
As for last month's red-carpet flour bomb
in West Hollywood, reputedly by a member of PETA, Kardashian said, "It's just a little odd to me that their whole message is non-violence towards animals yet they are violent towards humans," Kim said.
Kardashian noted that her clothing lines do not feature real furs, but said that people's fashion choices should reflect their own personal preferences.
"I have vintage furs that were my great-grandmothers that mean the world to me," she said. "I think it's a personal choice, but I don't think it's ok to assault anybody."
