That didn’t take too long, did it?. The Brooklyn Nets player Kris Humphries has finally granted ex-wife Kim Kardashian her divorce. He allegedly chose to head to the playoffs instead of continuing to fight Kim K. He’s lucky Jay didn’t drop him from the team.
Everyone has been partially following (either by choice, or otherwise) the split between Kardashian and Humphries. It was the love affair that only lasted 72 days, and echoed for longer than necessary. Kardashian has been overtly vocal about wanting a divorce from Humphries both in the media and in jest (peep her takeover of Chelsea Lately, where she politely sons her ex with the help of sister Khloe). Well, the NBA star officially gave up the battle.
Humphries’ rep told TMZ, “Kris and his family are excited to move forward and are grateful for all the support they have received in this process. His commitment to the Brooklyn Nets and the team’s incredible fans is his number one priority and he is excited to head into the playoffs tomorrow with this situation behind him.” The 28-year-old left the situation with no money, and no annulment. Was it worth it? Now that Ms. Kardashian is free from her b-balling ex –and having a baby with Kanye West– does this mean that the two will tie the knot? Stay tuned.
No one here in the Big Apple figured the Brooklyn Nets-New York Knicks on-the-court rivalry would be as intense as it is. But, on Monday night it got personal, according to the New York Post. Yesterday evening, Nets player Kris Humphries took to Twitter to take a jab at the Knicks after leaving Madison Square Garden with a 88-85 victory.
Though, J.R. Smith of the Knicks could not resist countering Humphries’ gloating tweet with one of his own. But Smith’s tweet, depending on how you read it, was a bit more personal.
Smith’s tweet has been re-tweeted more than 52,000 times and favored more than 20,000 times since it went live around 2 a.m. this morning.
Here is more on this story by The Post:
Smith’s tweet can only be in reference to Humphries’ estranged wife Kim Kardashian, who is now dating Kanye West and is pregnant with the rapper’s child. West performed alongside Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and Billy Joel during last month’s “12-12-12” Sandy-benefit concert.
Humphries and Kardashian are in a heated divorce battle as Humphries wants the reality star to admit that their 72-day marriage was “staged” and to give him a “public apology.” Sources have told Page Six that Humphries turned down a $7 million offer to “shut up and go away.”
Smith has gotten in hot water over posting to his Twitter account in the past. The Knicks star was fined $25,000 by the league last year after posting a picture of a nude woman to his account and last May tweeted about his potential departure from the Knicks, which he eventually downplayed.
Humphries finished with 11 points and 13 rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench in the Nets’ win.
Smith finished last night’s game with 16 points in 38 minutes, he missed the game-tying trey as time expired.
