Nearly three months after filing for divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kim Kardashian appeared alongside Kelly Ripa on Monday morning to co-hostÂ LIVE! With Kelly. Â SheÂ used theÂ opportunityÂ toÂ speak out against the rumors that are stating her marriage to NBA player, Kris Humphries, was a business deal. Â “Being a hopeless romantic, I wanted to believe in something so badly,” Kardashian said. Â “If you really think about it, if [the marriage] was a business decision, and I really made all that money that everyone was claiming that we made off this wedding, and if the wedding was fake and just for TV â€¦ I’m a smart business woman. Â I would have stayed married longer,” she explained to Ripa. Â “I really didn’t think following my heart would create this much backlash.”
How do you fend off rumors about your relationship after a breakup?
Sometimes relationships don’t work out as expected, and when it comes to an end, people will have Â their opinions as to what happened and rumors will begin. Â Here are a few tips on how to combat rumors:
1. Â Address the situation: Â Always try to be the first one to confirm the breakup, and while you don’t have to get into detail, explain why the relationship didn’t work out.
2. Â Take a breather: Â Rumors can be stressful, so try to avoid being in the spotlight for a while. Â Take time to relax, and get some much needed “me” time or have a spa day or mini vacation with your girls.
3. Â Move on: Â Sometimes, after you’ve already spoken about your relationship, people are still going to believe what they want to believe, and you won’t be able to change that. Â When this happens, it’s always best to hold your head up, turn the other cheek and keep moving along.
