NFL star Reggie Bush may have had an excellent college football career that surely made his entry into the NFL possible, but the professional athlete is probably more known for his very high-profile romance with Kim Kardashian than what he does on the football field.

When discussing Johnny Manziel’s hard start to fame, Reggie actually opened up about how dating Kim made his career difficult.

Here’s what the newlywed tells ESPN:

“It reminds me of what I went through, you know. For him, he’s going to have to learn how to say no and that’s going to be extremely hard because it’s going to be the people closest to you who you’re going to have to learn to say no to. And then you’re going to have to keep your circle small so that you can be allowed to focus on football, because without football, nothing else is going to [matter].

“When I started dating my ex, that’s when all this stuff came. But it’s part of the territory and, like I said, everything happens for a reason. A lot of it started in college, too, winning championships and all the different things we were able to accomplish at the collegiate level, that’s where it started obviously, why there was the attention at first, because of the accomplishments. Then all the other stuff came. The gossip magazines and all the other stuff, the ugly side of it. But you know what, I wouldn’t change anything because it helped mold and shape who I am today and I’m a better man for it.”


  1. Well duh. That’s what the Kardashian trash does to people. They ruin lives and get richer from it. It’s interesting that in 2014, a white family can still make a fortune off the backs of black people. And yet Kim still has black fans. LOL.

  2. I keep saying Reggie won man. He only liked Kim for her looks, so he dumped her and married her lookalike who comes without all the fame whoring. Smart man.

  3. Kim will be hurt when she hears this. I don’t care what anyone says, the only man Kim loved was Reggie. But she knew getting with Kanye would advance her career. And she was right. She would have never gotten that Vogue cover without Kanye.

  4. “Then all the other stuff came. The gossip magazines and all the other stuff, the ugly side of it. ”

    SO let’s see who caught on to this part. I told yall the K’s be planting stories. LOL.

    1. LOL. I caught it. But other celebs have already confirmed Kim has a relationship with the paps and the gossip rags. That is why it’s easy for me to believe the Kardashians are behind the Bey and Jay rumors.

    1. Right! If I was him I wouldn’t even talk about Kim. Why? She’s gone and that’s why his life is so much better. No need to even discuss her.

  5. I remember when Reggie was with the Saints and they won the SB. Kim made that day all about her. Her and her momma and all of them ran down to the field and kept taking pictures of themselves. Then Kim interrupted one of Reggie’s interviews. He looked so upset and annoyed too. He was over it THAT day.

  6. He kept it cute but it’s clear he’s glad to be away from Kim. Those people really do basically destroy any black celeb in their path. That’s why Bey and Jay wanted no parts of that wedding.

  7. They dragged Adrianna on Twitter For Rob’s comments that she made on a magazine. Now let’s see it they are going to drag Reggie on this one.

    1. I doubt it. Reggie has been throwing shade but Kim never says a word because she knows he can hurt her because there’s a lot of dirt he has on her.

  8. The thing with Kardashians is as long as you ride with them and become their puppet then you are good. The minute you disown them and try to distance yourself then they’ll make your life a living hell. Lamar Odom, Kris Humphries are a few example.

  9. I think everyone ended up with who they needed to be with. Kanye and Kim are perfect since they are both materialistic and attention seeking. Reggie needed a low-key woman because he is low-key and prefers that kind of life.
