10:04 PM PT --
Kris just posted a tweet that totally mocks Kanye West ... saying, "I'm up at Brooklyn! @S_C_ 'lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team' lol!"

The tweet is an obvious reference to the diss-track Kanye released ... in which he trashed Kris and bragged that he could have his BFF Jay-Z fire Kris whenever he wanted.

Kris Humphries
doesn't need Kim Kardashian to make a living ... 'cause dude just signed a $24 MILLION contract with the Brooklyn Nets.

It's a 2-year deal according to ESPN ... which means Kris got one helluva raise -- his previous contract was a 1-year deal worth $8 mil.

Not bad ... considering the Nets are partially owned by Jay Z ... who's best friends with Kanye West ... who's still banging Kris' estranged wife.

Kanye also recently bragged that he could have J fire Kris whenever he wants.

Sounds like a perfectly healthy work environment.

Meanwhile, kim will be exposed as a liar and a narcissistc, low-life user in the divorce and has no one left to date but gay fish. Time to really learn how much karma can and will be a beotch, k'trashians!

WHY do people keep saying that KH wants Kim's money??? He wants an ANNULMENT. He wants to be able to say that legally, the marriage didn't exist. In order to be granted an annulment, there has to be proof of fraud. Proof that the wedding and marriage was a fraud, which Kim K would have to admit. She never will because she would have to admit that she's a liar. He does NOT want her money. He never asked for her money. He wants to legally erase ever being married to her.

JayZ does not even like the Nets you never see him at a Nets game, But he is always courside at the NY Knicks games.

@Jules: Along with the annullment, KH also deserves to receive punitive damages for being used as kim's prop-groom. She deceptively made $20M in the sham wedding, that never would've occurred without KH, so she will be ordered to give him half. Also, the contract he signed that prevents him from speaking publicly about the k'trashians will be nullified and he'll be able to defend himself against all the B$ pimpmom plants in the media about him (especially here on KMZ). The future looks very bright for KH (not so much for the gypsies!)...

Jay-Z cares about money not petty feuds. Grow up Kimya.

you can't turn a wh--e into a housewife and Kanye will surely find out because he is not going to let the pimp, pimp him out

If Jay-Z would listen to Kanye about Jay-Z business then he is crazy I don't think Jay-Z gives a dam about Kanye and Kim when it comes down to his money and Jay-Z needs to straighten him out buy using his name that way, but as soon as they break up then Kanye will probably be Kris's bff and they will have a lot to laugh about, Kanye will see the real KIM

Could this be a conspiracy against him? Maybe Kanye asked Jay to give him a raise to prove that he can make a good living and doesn't need a settlement from Kim K in their divorce.....hmmmm

I seriously doubt that Jay can drop even the janitor! I bet he owns 3-4 %, the other 96 % is owned probably by some russian billionaire. So Kanye needs to stop dreaming.
