Kim K's Reality Pal

Jacking Up Security

After Humphries Threats

12/10/2011 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jonathan Cheban
Kardashian pal and “Spin Crowd” star Jonathan Cheban is freaking out ... claiming some pissed-off Kris Humphries fanatics want to hurt him -- and now, he's beefing up his security.

See, Cheban threatened to sue Kris for $5 million recently -- after the basketball star called him "gay" on TV -- and the whole lawsuit thing didn't sit so well some hotheaded Humphries supporters.

Among the threats Cheban received on Twitter ... “Comin to spit on you tomorrow at Dash store ... you and Kim are full of crap and trying to ruin Kris's life.”

Sources close to Jonathan tell TMZ ... he's so freaked ... he hired a bunch of extra security for an appearance he’s making at Kim's store today in NYC to promote his jewelry line.

Cheban insists he's "not gay."

He could learn something from Johnny Galecki. Being called gay is not offensive.

TMZ...Do not post any stories about this guy. You are making him more famous than he needs to be. Not that it really matters but this guy is totally gay. I am sure E! is creating an episode where he comes out of the closet.

Instead of threatening to sue Kris for asking if he is gay on camera, why not sue KK and E network for airing it on tv? If it is really that insulting for him to have pple think he's gay, then his "friend" should have made sure it didn't make it on tv

You are seriously obsessed with the kardashians the very same people you call trash and hoes. If you hate them so much why do you watch their show and know so much about them?

Anyone who attempts to sue after being called gay is a loser. I could see if Kris taunted him or was harassing him about being gay, but simply calling him gay, come on guy! I definitely agree with the comments that this is all about PR. And honestly, I assumed he and the other guy on the Spin Crowd were both gay. Maybe it's just his apparent plastic surgery that's throwing everyone off.

5 mil, for saying he's gay, someone's a bit overly sensitive. More important question why would he care about what Kris thinks he is, if wasn't gay. And I doubt he could sue for an opinion.

Who cares about this guy, the Kardashians, or anyone associated with them. They SHOULD NOT be famous. This is a family first known for Robert Kardashian's OJ Simpson defense and his ex wife Kris marrying Bruce Jenner, a then respected Gold Medalist. Fast forward to daughter Kim's "leaked" sex tape; graphic oral sex and intercourse performed by "Kimmie" (coincidentally after her friend Pari******on also had a "leaked" sex tape). Mother Kris decides she better do some damage control and turn this little problem around... Fast fast forward to the present, several years after multi reality shows of the new Jenner/Kardashian clan and a multi million dollar "brand" of overpriced krap from the K girls has emerged. They are plastered everywhere; supermarkets, shopping malls, billboards, radio, and of course television - One can avoid their reality show, but it's nearly impossible to be free of their images and voices. What's wrong with this ? The all too famous Kardashians have made a mockery of the American family, the American culture, and the basic values and morals most of us were all taught no matter what race, religion or generation we come from. They are rude and vulgar while fighting, cussing and whining their way through their televised daily lives filled with staged events, conspicuous consumption and plastic surgery. Needless to say, there is no evidence of any real talent here either. Sadly, these people are seen by millions as role models. This family is a horrific masterminded marketing joke on the American public, and unfortunately, millions are buying it, literally.

When you hitch your wagon to a train wreck, you have to expect that security will be necessary. You could go out and get a real job and never have to need security.
