Kris Humphries Kim K Marriage 'Not Fake' ... Split Was Brutal

Kris Humphries is opening up about the most famous 72-day marriage of all time -- saying his relationship with Kim Kardashian was 100% real ... and he was genuinely "embarrassed" when they broke up.

The ex-NBA player spilled his guts about his coupling with Kim K in The Players' Tribune ... saying, "Look, I should have known what I was getting into."

Kris and Kim began dating in 2010 and got engaged in May 2011. They tied the knot August 20, 2011 ... and Kim filed for divorce on Oct. 31.

"I was definitely naive about how much my life was going to change," Kris says ... "But the one thing that really bothers me is whenever people say that my marriage was fake."

"There’s definitely a lot about that world that is not entirely real. But our actual relationship was 100% real."

Kris says "it sucked" when he realized the marriage wasn't working -- "It’s never easy to go through the embarrassment of something like that — with your friends, with your family."

"But when it plays out so publicly, in front of the world, it’s a whole other level. It was brutal."

Humphries -- now 34 years old and out of the NBA -- says he didn't know how to handle the negative attention stemming from his breakup ... admitting, "There was about a year where I was in a dark place."

Kris says he didn't want to leave his house and didn't even want to be known as Kris Humphries. Instead, Kris says he pretended to be Blake Griffin when he was out in public.

He also reflects about how much it sucked to be booed and taunted in the wake of the split -- wondering if fans were after him because they thought he was a wannabe reality star ... or because they thought he disrespected the game of basketball.

Humphries says he's not asking for pity -- and never really wanted to be famous -- claiming he's now trying to stay "under the radar" as he works on the next phase of his life.

So, what is Kris planning to do next? He's already opened up several restaurants -- 10 Five Guys burger joints and with plans to open 7 CRISP & GREEN eateries.

Kim Kardashian I Was High on Ecstasy ... During Sex Tape, First Wedding


Kim Kardashian says her jaw was shaking while she filmed her infamous sex tape with Ray J, but it's not what you think ... she was rollin' on X.

Scott Disick pulled it out of her during a convo on 'KUWTK'. The mother of 3 -- who is now super straight-laced -- recalled how she used the drug during her sex scene and during her first wedding ... the one to music producer Damon Thomas in 2000.

So, to hear her tell it, those were the only 2 times she did the drug -- "I did ecstasy once and I got married ... I did it again, I made a sex tape. Like, everything bad would happen."

Kim said her wild side is still there ... "I still can do crazy things." Well, not like that.

Kanye West I'm Not Signing that Pic ... That's Kim's OTHER Wedding!

Kanye West had a sweet moment when he arrived in D.C. Sunday ... a fan wanted him to sign a pic of his bride on their wedding day ... problem is, the guy had the wrong groom!

Kanye and Kim were making their way to their limo when the autograph hound extended his arm, photo in hand. Turns out it was from wedding #2, when Kim married Kris Humphries.

You would think Kanye would have blanched, but this is the new, improved, hyper-social Kanye West!

Check it out ... it's hilarious.

Kim Kardashian No Patience Left for Rob's Issues With Drugs and Weight

Kim Kardashian is tired of her brother wallowing in his problems, and admits she's taking a tough love approach until he takes action.

Kim was on "Watch What Happens Live" Tuesday night and told Andy Cohen what went down between her and Rob when he left Italy before her wedding to Kanye West.

As TMZ first reported ... Rob ditched because he was self-conscious over his weight gain and did not want to appear in any wedding photos.

Last night Kim said, "I try to encourage him, and once you don't make that change for so long ... my patience wears out." She never says exactly WHAT he's been dealing with "for so long" -- but our Kardashian sources say Rob's weight gain is closely tied to his issues with drugs.

Watch Kim ... it's not hard to read between the lines. She's fed up.

Kim and Kanye Happy 73rd (Day) Anniversary!!!

Brody Jenner Kanye's Like a Stranger That's Why I Didn't Go

Brody Jenner has zero relationship with Kanye West ... and that's a big reason why he didn't make the trek to Europe for Kim's wedding.

Kim's step-bro made the comments on his podcast Thursday, insisting he was not disrespecting Kim by being a no-show at her wedding but front and center at the wedding of her ex-BF Reggie Bush.

Brody says there are 2 other reasons he didn't show:

-- Short notice
-- The wedding was way far away in Paris. It was actually Florence, but whatever.

It's a good sell. You buyin'?

Annie Leibovitz Hey Kanye, No Problemo You Trashed Me!

Annie Leibovitz has decided to address Kanye West's attack on her ... problem is, she wussed out.

You'll recall Kanye trashed Annie for bailing on shooting their wedding right before the vows. Kanye said she was just "afraid of celebrity." A weird comment, since Annie has become world famous for shooting celebs.

So ... Annie's just sent us a long, rambling statement which also contains comments from Kanye -- and it never directly addresses the "afraid of celebrity" comment.

The rep says Kanye was frustrated he couldn't "collaborate with Annie" but he's not blaming her for bailing .... even though his comment sure sounds like blame.

The rep says, "Unbeknownst to Kanye, she was never confirmed." Annie's rep adds, "she would have loved to have taken their wedding portrait and was disappointed it didn't happen."

And get this ... the statement says Annie is responsible for shooting Kim and Kanye's Vogue cover, but she's "not known to shoot weddings." It sounds like she wasn't really into doing it in the first place."

And get this BJ ... Kanye says, "The most-liked Instagram photo of all time, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Oh, I'm sorry for dreaming out loud. Again."

Kanye TRASHES Leibovitz Over Wedding Photo

Kanye West says famed photographer Annie Leibovitz practically RUINED his honeymoon with Kim Kardashian ... because they had to spend days fixing the now-famous floral wall wedding pic.

Annie was supposed to shoot the pic but she pulled out entirely the day before the wedding. Kanye says she claimed she was "afraid of celebrity" -- a weird statement because Annie's brand is all about celebrity.

Nonetheless ... the pic was taken but not perfected, and Kanye says he and Kim spent 4 days -- yes, 4 DAYS -- screwing with the pic because the flowers were "off color."

Kanye -- speaking at a conference in Cannes -- says the extra work pissed off Kim during their honeymoon, saying ... "She was exhausted because we worked on the photo so much."

The photo ended up being the most popular pic ever on Instagram -- almost 2 million likes and 35,000 comments.

Kim & Kanye Topless Kim Wedding Painting Wasn't Our Idea

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's egos DO know a limit, after all -- TMZ has learned they are disavowing any knowledge of a partially nude painting of Kim ... allegedly commissioned for their wedding.

A report from across the pond this week said Kanye had contacted a street artist named Bambi to do a thong-baring painting of Kim entitled "Perfect Bitch" -- which, by the way, looks nothing like her in the face. Bambi nailed the ass though.

But sources close to the couple tell TMZ ... neither of them know ANYTHING about this -- no painting was ever ordered, nor does Kim want one. This should sound familiar ... another artist, Monica Warhol, claimed the same thing last year.

We spoke to Bambi's manager, who's standing by Bambi's story and claims Kim's people should be receiving the artwork any day now.

Look for it in a garbage bin outside their home.

Kim Kardashian Mrs. West Returns

With husband Kanye West nowhere in sight, Kim Kardashian returned to the U.S. Sunday following the couple's multi-country wedding/honeymoon extravaganza.

KK signed a few autographs as she made her way through LAX ... accompanied by a gaggle of paps ... who hit KK with a slew of Rob Kardashian early exit wedding questions.

The Kimye wedding/honeymoon international tour stretched across Paris, Florence, Ireland and even Prague.

The honeymoon is over ... now the real work begins.

Kim & Kanye Band Together

Make no mistake about it ... Kanye West is full out MAN DOWN!!!

After hitting up Paris, Florence and Ireland, the Kim Kardashian and Kanye wedding/honeymoon extravaganza landed in Prague ... where the newlyweds stepped out in matching black leather.

Kanye sported a fairly massive wedding band as the couple made their way to dinner ... making it clear to anyone and everyone ... he's taken.

But make no mistake ... Kim's is bigger.

MLB Star Andrew McCutchen Kim & Kanye Were Right Don't Ever Tongue During Wedding Kiss!

TONSIL HOCKEY IS A NO-NO when it comes to the big wedding kiss ... so says engaged MLB superstar Andrew McCutchen who tells TMZ Sports he'll be following Kim & Kanye's tongue-less lead when he takes the plunge.

The reigning National League MVP was out in NYC Tuesday when we asked him about kissing etiquette at the altar -- which, apparently, is a super-controversial topic (people in the TMZ newsroom are pretty fired up about it).

But Cutch says there's no debate about it -- when it comes to swapping spit, ya gotta save it for AFTER you head down the aisle.


Lana Del Rey I Didn't Get a Dime to Sing at Kimye's Wedding

Lana Del Rey shot down the ridiculous rumor she scored an insane pay day for singing at Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kanye West ... telling TMZ she did it for nothing.

One report had Lana's fee at a whopping $2.8 million ... but this afternoon at LAX, a very friendly Del Rey told our photog she didn't receive a dime.

Lana also explains WHY she performed gratis, and the good news is -- there's a slim chance she could do the same for you.

Really slim.

Rob Kardashian Vows to Dump the Plump After Wedding Meltdown

Rob Kardashian is determined to drop his considerable gut after fleeing Kimye's wedding in fat shame ... vowing to hit the gym EVERY DAY until he sees his toes again, Rob's trainer tells TMZ.

Celeb trainer Gunnar Peterson tells us ... Rob texted him when he arrived back from Italy, where he bailed on Kimye's wedding because he felt too fat to pose for family photographs.

Gunnar says Rob's text was clear as crystal -- he wanted to hit the ground running ... literally ... posting up workouts every day this week, and continuing the intensity until the fat is gone.

As we reported, Rob's gym regimen hit a lull before Kim's wedding -- he worked out just a couple times a week -- but we're told Rob is now determined to get his old body back.

Gunnar tells us ... he will show Rob no mercy -- he'll endure a full hour of high-intensity full body exercises, cardio, resistance training ... the whole hog -- daily.

Gunnar tells us ... "Rob is locked and loaded" ... and NOT with cheeseburgers.

Kim & Kanye 1ST KISS ... NO TONGUE.

When in France (or Italy) ... don't French Kiss ... at least, not for your first smooch as man and wife.

Kim just posted a couple of pics from the big event -- including a shot from the moment Kanye was told, "You may kiss the bride" ... and it was closed mouths all the way.

Mrs. West also posted a pic of the happy couple walking down the aisle after tying the knot -- with baby North looking on.

Not Pictured: Rob Kardashian.
