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.
“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.”
