What exactly was Kim Kardashian saying about her ex-husband Kris Humphries?

In discussing her "second wedding" during Episode 5 of "The Kardashians," (the series steams on on Hulu), she said: "I love a gay wedding, I haven't gone to one since my second wedding," 

She said so in rehearsing a marriage speech for the couple's upcoming wedding of her gay bffs Simon Huck and Phil Riportella. She made the comment to Scott Disick and their friend Chris Reda.

"Kim's second marriage was to NBA player Kris, and despite the fact that she did not specify Kris' name or sexuality in her comment, many fans have speculated that the former basketball star is gay," reports the website RCOnline.

"According to what reports say, the ex-couple dated for as many as nine months of dating, before they tied the knot. It was only 72 days later that they mutually filed for divorce on October 31. It is not very much apparent whether Kardashian was making a dig at Humphries or simply joking about the lavishness of their wedding," writes the website Conceptual Revolution.

"Reportedly, their wedding was one big luxurious affair! It aired as a four-hour special called 'Kim's Fairytale Wedding, A Kardashian Event' on E! As many as 450 guests graced with their presence at the soiree, including stars like Ryan Seacrest, Lindsay Lohan, Serena Williams, and Eva Longoria. The bride adorned three different but very beautiful gowns which were designed by Vera Wang."

Post-divorce, they claimed it wasn't a publicity stunt. "Both of them have completely regretted their marriage. In June 2021, Kim confessed on the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' reunion of getting 'cold feet' the night before her wedding to which Kris Jenner even offered to help her own way," adds Conceptual Revolution.

"During their honeymoon in Italy, Kardashian realized her marriage was not going to work out. 'I was like, 'F*ck, I think I made the wrong decision,' she remembered. "For anyone out there listening, if you have cold feet, it is not it.' The famous personality said that she even called Humphries for quite a few months in order to apologize for how their marriage ended but he just would not pick up any of her calls. In addition to this, she described Kris as a very faith-based person. She further stated that 'Only if I was mature enough, I would have wanted the annulment too. I wish I was only married once.' "

In 2011, Out Magazine reported that according to unnamed sources, "Kardashian began to question her husband's heterosexuality when, after their honeymoon, his interest in sex began to fade. These same 'insiders' went on to tell the rag that Kardashian attempted to 'spice up their love life' only to be turned down after performing a strip tease. New Jersey Nets star Humphries, it's said, preferred to watch the very gay programming on SportsCenter.

In a Star Magazine 2011 cover story, Kim Kardashian "reportedly told her sister that any lack of libido on Humphries part was as good as a big pink triangle on his NBA uniform."

"At first Kim thought that was ridiculous," the magazine reported. "But the more she thought about it, the more she wondered. There were signs."

Such as Humphries "loves shopping and beautifying as much as Kim," and recently got "up close and personal" with brother-in-law Scott Disick when he shaved the other man's armpits on the premiere of 'Kourtney & Kim Take New York'."

MSN reports that following "the split, things were extremely contentious between Kim and Kris, as he tried to get the marriage annulled on the grounds of fraud. Kris claimed that Kim only married him for publicity for her reality show, 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians.' However, a judge found there was no evidence to support this claim. Kim and Kris finally reached a divorce settlement in April 2013, and the divorce was finalized that June. Days later, Kim gave birth to North West, her first child with Kanye West.

MSN adds: "While Kris has mostly been out of the spotlight since his split from Kim, he did open up about the marriage in a 2019 essay. 'One thing that really bothers me is whenever people say my marriage was fake,' Kris admitted. 'There's definitely a lot about that world that is not entirely real, but our actual relationship was 100 percent real. When it was clear it wasn't working...what can I say? It sucked.'

"Kris also admitted to going through a 'dark time' due to all the hate he got after the divorce, and the fact that he became known as 'that guy from TV,' rather than a basketball player. 'I was never a person who wanted to be famous,' he concluded. 'I'm a guy from Minnesota who loves the game of basketball'."
