Reality star Kim Kardashian‘s ex-husband, NBA player Kris Humphries, has finally jabbed back at Kanye West in a new “Funny or Die” skit, weeks after getting put on blast courtesy of the rapper’s “Way Too Cold (Theraflu)” record.
In the new clip, Humphries shows no love lost by targeting Yeezy.
Kris Humphries is taking jabs at Kanye in a new Funny or Die skit. Yeezy referenced the basketball player and Kim Kardashian’s former husband on his track “Way Too Cold.” “And I’ll admit, I fell in love with Kim/Around the same time, she fell in love with him/Well, that’s cool, baby girl do your thing/Lucky I didn’t have Jay drop him from the team,” he rapped. In response, the Nets player has released a skit in which he mocks ‘Ye, who is now dating Kim. “Guys this feels terrible,” said Humphries wearing a pair of Kanye’s signature sunglasses. “Well, that’s cause you have the wrong sunglasses. We don’t want you to look like an a**hole, we want you to look like a douchebag,” responded his prospective managers while mocking Yeezy’s “Runaway.” (VIBE)
In April, the Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov stood up for Humphries in light of Ye’s diss.
West, whose blossoming relationship with Humphries’ ex-wife, Kim Kardashian , has been grabbing headlines, declared his love for the reality star on the track. The song, which leaked April 5, features a cheap shot at Humphries. “Lucky I ain’t have Jay drop him from the team,” West boasts on the tune, inferring that he has enough influence over Nets minority owner and buddy Jay-Z to affect Humphries’ future with the team. According to the Nets’ principal owner, however, West can’t touch Humphries. “Kris has nothing to worry about,” Prokhorov said. “I support my players, and I’m on his side in this epic battle.” Although Hova has gotten a lot of press indicating that he’s an owner of the Nets, his stake in the team is minuscule compared to Prokhorov’s. The Russian businessman, who’s back in town after a losing bid for president in his native country, paid $200 million for 80% of the NBA team in 2010. Jay-Z reportedly purchased a $4.5 million stake in the Nets in 2004. (New York Daily News)
The response came just a day after Yeezy’s team officially changed his track’s title.
West’s label Island Def Jam issued a press release on Saturday to notify of the change, calling it a “creative decision.” The company which produces the over-the-counter cold and flu remedy of the same name reportedly took issue with West’s use of their brand, telling TMZ, “We in no way endorse or approve of the references or use of the image and likeness of Theraflu in this manner.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
While Ye and Kim are now allegedly dating, Kardashian opened up about her separation from Humphries in an open letter last fall.
“Everyone that knows me knows that I’m a hopeless romantic! I love with all of my heart and soul. I want a family and babies and a real life so badly that maybe I rushed in to something too soon. … I never had the intention of hurting anybody and I accept full responsibility for my actions and decisions, and for taking everyone on this journey with me. It just didn’t turn out to be the fairy tale I had so badly hoped for. There are also reports that I made millions of dollars off of the wedding. These reports are simply not true and it makes me so sad to have to even clarify this. I’m so grateful to everyone who took the time to come to my wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation. I’m sorry if I have hurt anyone, but my dad always told me to follow my heart and I believe now that I really am.” (Kim Kardashian’s Blog)
