What a difference a year makes.
In 2011, Kris Humphries celebrated his 26th birthday with his soon-to-be bride, Kim Kardashian, by his side. But his 27th birthday party was quite a different scene -- the now-single star spent the night flirting with multiple girls!
On Saturday, Feb. 4., the birthday boy -- dressed casually in a Burberry sweater -- started his evening at NYC restaurant Abe & Arthur's, where he was joined by his sister Kaela and several teammates for dinner.
While the group dined on house specialties such as meatballs, a deejay spun classic hip-hop hits such as "Mo Money, Mo Problems." One waitress was so enthralled by Kris, she bought him a drink herself. "He was delighted by the gesture and flirtatiously chatted with her," an eyewitness tells Life & Style.
Kris was also given a special basketball-shaped cake while his family and friends sang "Happy Birthday." "He said the best birthday present he could get was a winning season with his team," says an onlooker.
"One curvy brunette girl in a tight black dress came up to Kris' chair and started chatting with him flirtatiously. At one point, she started walking away, but Kris grabbed her back to chat more," an eyewitness says.
Later on, the party moved downstairs at nightclub SL, where Ronnie Magro from Jersey Shore joined Kris' table and served as bartender, pouring drinks for partygoers. His Jersey Shore co-star Vinny Guadagnino joined the party later. "Kris stripped to a white V-neck T-shirt and was grabbing girls from the group up to his bench to dance," an eyewitness says.
Around 4 a.m., Kris grabbed his jacket and headed out but not before exchanging a knowing look with the same brunette from earlier in the evening. "They left at the same time, and it definitely looked like something was going on between them," a partygoer tells Life & Style.
But it seems Kris is still on the market for now. A rep for Humphries says the girl was a member of his PR team and not a romantic interest.
Happy birthday, Kris!
