Likely to be forever branded as Kim Kardashian
's 72-day husband
, Kris Humphries continues to break free from his past and is looking forward to playing with the Brooklyn Nets.
"Some people just make bad decisions, and you just know it's not what's meant to be," Humphries, 27, tells the New York Post
's Page Six Magazine
, on sale Sept. 6.
"The decisions that you make, you obviously make for a reason. Everything in life for me has just been moving forward.”
Nor has his history soured him on the idea of an eventual life of blissful domesticity.
"I think everyone wants a family of their own one day," he says. "You're at the point in your life when all of your friends are married and stuff. For me, at least, everyone runs their own race. You can't put a timetable on it."
Still, the past is not entirely buried, it seems.
As Humphries recently Tweeted
, in a pointed reference to the Kanye West
song "Way Too Cold" (in which West refers to his romance with Kardashian
and threatens to use his close friendship with Nets co-owner Jay-Z to have Humphries dropped from the team): "I'm up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ "lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team" lol!"
Explaining the message, Humphries says it was all in jest. "I have a sense of humor," he says. "It's whatever, I joke around. It was what it was. Take from it what you will."
