In case you don’t know who Kris Humphries is, he was once married to Kim Kardashian. They declared their love for each other in a highly televised event on the E! Network. Kris and Kim were married for 72 days before she announced that she was divorcing him.

Kim is now married to rapper Kanye West, who actually supports Bruce Jenner’s transition in a woman. The former Olympian revealed Kim’s story to Diane Sawyer.

“Kim told me a story. She goes, ‘You know what really turned me around on thinking about this?’ I said, ‘What?’ She goes, ‘Kanye.’ I went, ‘Oh, okay.'”

“He says to Kim, ‘Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me. If I can’t be true to myself, they don’t mean anything.'”

“Since then, Kimberly has been, by far, the most accepting, and the easiest to talk to about it.”

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian has been ignoring Kris Humphries (as she should) on Twitter. She took to the social networking site to share some photos of herself with Jenner, along with some loving words.
