It seems that Kris Humphries wants to rise above the rumors surrounding his divorce from Kim Karadashian.

In a statement posted byHollywoodLife.com on Monday, Humphries’ legal team addressed recent speculation on the divorce, including a report earlier this month that the 27-year-old basketball player was demanding $7 million to end his marriage to Kardashian once and for all.

“Neither Kris Humphries nor his legal team have spread these rumors nor will they,” the statement reads. “While we are encouraged to see an apparent willingness by the other side to put big numbers out in an attempt to settle Mr. Humphries’ claims, we respect and will continue to observe the integrity of the legal process. This case will be resolved not in the court of public opinion amidst ridiculous and defamatory allegations and personal attacks directed against Kris Humphries. Rather, this case will be appropriately investigated and litigated professionally and with integrity.”….more
