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.

Kanye is a delusional c00n. Fighting over a girl that every rapper/NFL/NBA player has been inside of, a girl who is on video on the internet being bussed wide open and urinated on. Dissing Kris Humphries is like dissing Drake. A soft dude dissing another soft dude over a wh-re at that. He's delusional because Jay can't drop Kris, especially not when he says so. What a loser. I'm sure his mother must be proud that he's making a ho his wifey.

Anyone left who still claims that kim and pimpmom are such great business-women might want to finally face facts. All their manipulating, lying and scamming is totally blowing up in their fake faces and the gypsy train is just about to ride permanently off the tracks. See ya, greedy k'trashian famewhores!

And yet, at the end of the day, he still is a dog. And all that followed and worshiped him, are dogs too. Now go and take your business elsewhere, it reeks and stinks to high heaven.

Jay Z owns 1% which grants him the ability to do absolutely NOTHING with the team. He has ZERO decision making ability. As a matter of fact, if you see Jay Z sitting court side in Brooklyn, he paid for those tickets.

I am so very happy for him. Now that he has a job doing what he loves the most and after this divorce thing is done he can get on with his life and never look back. I know Kris is sorry he ever heard of Kim Kardashian or her idiotic family.

Lets see 24 mill for the Hump over 2 years and 40 mill for the entire Kartrashian whoring Klan over 4 years.
The Hump = Winner

What You Really Want To See    

The most exciting thing about this article is that it confirms Kanye West is a tool... as if his stage rant with Taylor Swift was not enough.

Kaney looks so fat to me, hu ! Fat face or perhaps
that is just the way he is.
But I can't believe he is THAT stupid.
when it comes to fighting over The big derriere
and boobs, we never know what can come out.
