Kris Humphries channeled all of that frustration with Kim Kardashian onto the basketball court and had his best season ever last year. He was rewarded today (July 24) with a two-year $24 million deal. He promptly rubbed it in Kanye West’s face.
West, who is now dating Kardashian, dissed Humphries in April in his rap “Thereflu” later renamed “Cold.” He warned Humphries to watch out or he would have pal Jay-Z fire him from the Nets.
Jay-Z is a part owner and has no say in team management, but the point was made. But that was before Humpries finished the year with an average of more than 13 points and 13 rebounds a game, his career best.
With his new contract in hand, Humphries decided to have a little fun. “I’m up at Brooklyn!” he Tweeted “@S_C_ ‘lucky I didn’t have Jay drop me from the team” lol!’
@S_C_ is one of Jay-Z’s twitter accounts.
Humphries has been been locked in a bitter divorce with Kardashian over their 72-day marriage. He has filed for an annulment alleging marriage fraud. Kim is fighting the claim. She’s seeking a divorce base on irreconcilable differences.
