It looks like Kim Kardashian‘s ex-husband Kris Humphries is Team Rob Kardashian! When asked about the reality star’s nude photo scandal involving former fiancée Blac Chyna, the NBA star said, “That’s my guy,” before adding, “I don’t read too much into it. Hopefully he’ll be alright.”
Kris famously separated from Kim after just 72 days of marriage in 2011. Since then, he hasn’t had the nicest things to say about the family. In April 2015, the 32-year-old was slammed on social media for posting an insensitive tweet during Caitlyn Jenner’s [then known as Bruce] interview with Diane Sawyer, during which the former Olympian came out as transgender.
“Man, I’m glad I got out when I did. #Gottadoyou,” the Atlanta Hawks player said at the time, inciting immediate backlash. He later clarified, “I have and always will support Bruce hence #Gottadoyou. Now recognize I was too vague and sincerely apologize for the way this came across.”

Kim recently spoke out about her short-lived union to Kris, admitting that she married him for the wrong reasons. “I just thought, ‘Holy shit, I’m 30 years old, I better get this together. I better get married,” she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.
“I think, like, a lot of girls do go through that where they freak out thinking they’re getting old and they have to figure it out, all their friends are having kids. And so it was more of that situation. But I knew, like, honeymoon it wasn’t gonna work out. It’s just one of those life lessons that you have to learn, and it’s OK.”
As Life & Style previously reported, Khloé Kardashian is currently helping Rob out during this emotional time. “Rob didn’t move in with her, but Khloé and [boyfriend Tristan Thompson] are encouraging him to come hang out at the house and workout with them hoping it will motivate him to get back on the health grind and take care of himself,” a source said.
