It’s been a good week for Kim Kardashian’s ex Kris Humphries! The athlete and former Keeping Up With The Kardashians star signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Brooklyn Nets. Humphries’ contract last year was for $8 million, so he’s definitely taken a step up the athletic ladder! With his contract set, Humphries took to Twitter to spread the good news. And he included a little message for Kanye in his tweet. Read on for the details!
Remember Kanye’s song Way Too Cold? A certain portion of the lyrics reference Kim Kardashian and her marriage to Kris Humphries:
And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim
‘Round the same time she fell in love with him
Well that’s cool baby girl, do your thing
Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team
Kanye may be friends with Jay-Z, but he doesn’t exert as much influence over the Brooklyn Nets’ lineup as he might like to think; Kris Humphries is back on the team this year! And not only is he still on the team, he’ll also be earning a cool $24 million for his efforts.
Humphries obviously noticed his presence in Kanye’s lyrics, for he shot a snippet of the song right back at the hip hop star after he learned the exciting news about his contract: ‘I’m up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ ”lucky I didn’t have Jay drop me from the team” lol!’
@S_C_ just so happens to be Jay-Z’s Twitter handle. It sure would be interesting to see a response from the hip hop artist! Jay-Z almost never updates his Twitter page though, so don’t get your hopes up.
