Kim Kardashian Claims Kris Humphries Is Gay in Star Magazine.
I suppose we should have expected this. Take a celebrity breakup, add a big-mouthed bitchy diva, and a beautiful, metrosexual 20-something, and you’ve got yourself a hit! There’s a gay rumor in Star magazine.
This time it’s Kim Kardashian who has outed her soon-to-be ex-husband, NBA player Kris Humphries, as gay. The warning signs? He dresses nicely, has his nails done, and shaves the armpits of men! Isn’t that something that every homosexual man does? Those three things alone are a recipe for gay! gay! GAY! Add in “wants to spend time with a Kardashian” and it’s a recipe for gay! gay! GAY!
According to Star magazine, Kris Humphries, Kim Kardashian’s soon-to-be ex-husband, is gay. Following a tip to the gossip magazine, reports circulated that Humphries is gay and that both Kim Kardashian and her family were aware of it.
Humphries’ spokesman swiftly rejected the claim, calling it “totally false and ludicrous.”
Kim Kardashian’s divorce after only 72 days of marriage sparked outrage among gay marriage supporters throughout the world, with gossip writer Perez Hilton tweeting, “Straight people do a damn well fantastic job of undermining the sacredness of marriage!” #MarriageForAll.”
Kris was taken 14th overall in the first round of the 2004 NBA draught by the Utah Jazz. In his first season, the Jazz permitted him to participate in over 60 games, although his playing time was substantially reduced.
As a result, his debut season performance was not particularly spectacular.
After another dismal season with the Jazz, he was dealt to the Toronto Raptors for the 2006-07 season on June 8, 2006.
He then played for the Raptors for three seasons till 2009, but he made no improvement.
Humphries gained traction after signing with the New Jersey Nets in January 2010. From the middle of the 2009-10 season through the end, he averaged 8.1 points and 6.4 rebounds per game for them.
However, after signing with another NBA team in 2013, he didn’t survive long. Nonetheless, his play in the second half of his NBA career was remarkable.
As a result, he spent four more seasons with the Boston Celtics, Washington Wizards, Phoenix Suns, and Atlantic Hawks.
In 2017, he announced his retirement from professional basketball when the Philadelphia 76ers dropped him just weeks after signing him.
Kris was a member of the American national team that qualified for the FIBA Junior World Championship in 2003, in addition to his club career.
When Did Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian Tie the Knot?
Humphries became famous for his 72-day marriage to Kim.
He proposed after they had been dating for less than a year and had been engaged for 90 days.
They married on August 20, 2011, and E! aired a two-part TV special about the wedding preparations and the ceremony in early October 2011.
Things did not endure, despite the fact that it was billed as “Kim’s fantasy wedding.”
Kim filed for divorce from Kris on October 31, 2011, according to reports.
Kris responded to Kim’s petition on December 1, 2011, demanding an annulment based on fraud or a decree of legal separation rather than the proposed divorce.
