Well, just because Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian are no longer an item doesn't mean they can't steal a few headlines together.

Especially when the New Jersey Nets forward claims his ex-wife's new relationship with Kanye West is akin to a publicity stunt. From Radar Online:

Kris knows for a fact that this dalliance between Kim and Kanye has been going on for at least the last two years. Kim kept in touch with Kanye after she married Kris and promised him that she would cut off communication with him, but she never did. Kris is suspicious of the timing of Kim deciding to go public with the relationship because the new season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is premiering in May, and Kanye has released a new album," an insider tells us.

Kris knows that Kanye NEVER would have recorded those lyrics about Kim without her permission, period. Kris wonders if Kanye is going to drink the 'Kardashian Kool Aid' as he calls it, because if you aren't a family member and don't fall in line with what Kris Jenner dictates, you are persona non grata.

Apparently, Kardashian and West are dating now. And if any of the above isn't fabricated and actually represents the thought process of Humphries, it's obvious that he still harbors serious resentment toward Kardashian.

Still, it's a shame that crap like this has to come out and continue to make Humphries the "Sideshow Bob" of the NBA. Well, perhaps that honor is actually best saved for Anderson Varejao, but you get my drift.

Humphries is having a really good season. He's averaging 13.6 points and 11.0 rebounds per game. All of this post-Kardashian junk is spoiling all of that.

If he's leaking his opinion on her life, he really should stop—all of the respect he should be gaining from his game is going right back out the window with this trash.

The strength of his game is his ability to rebound. Maybe it's time he does that in his personal life as well.

This is Dr. Phil, signing out.
