Kris Humphries has been Kanye'd. 

I don't think my brain has been able to comprehend all of this just yet, but here is my best attempt to explain the unexpected thing that happened last night when Kanye West's latest track hit the Internet.

Whenever Kanye does something (and there's usually more bad here than good), I know that I count on Twitter to keep me informed, and this was no different.

Kanye released a new song called "Theraflu" and, in typical Kanye fashion, he gets pretty honest on it. In the second verse, while baring his soul, he first tells us that he respects Wiz (that would be Wiz Khalifa, the man who is with Kanye's ex, Amber Rose), which is a huge step, then he divulges some new information that had been largely speculated on over the summer:

Kanye tells us that he fell in love with Kim (Kardashian) around the time that she fell in love with an unnamed "him." Via, here's the verse:

"And I'll admit I fell in love with Kim, around the same time she had fell in love with him. Well that's cool, baby girl do your thing. Lucky I ain't have Jay drop him from the team."

When I first heard it, I tried to think of the rapper that Kim had been with because I was drawing a blank.

And then it hit me like a bag of bricks: Kanye West was referring to Kris Humphries. Humphries plays for the New Jersey Nets, Jay's other (other) team.

This is a little crazy, right? I mean, even in the warped reality world of the Kardashians and Yeezy craziness, Kris Humphries being mentioned in a rap song of any kind is just so…weird. Humphries spent time in Toronto and he was always pleasant. A nice reserve on an NBA team. Had you told any of the Toronto media who covered him that he would go on to marry Kim Kardashian, split up with her and then end up being referenced in a Kanye song, I think we all would have laughed you out of the locker room.

To quote a Kanye song, life can be sometimes ridiculous. 

As for Humphries, he's been playing some great basketball. He's also been dissed in a rap song. It's official: he has arrived.
