There's a reason love triangles draw so much interest in pop culture. They tend to create juicy stories. Kris Humphries and Reggie Bush are finding that out the hard way as their links back to Kim Kardashian keep finding ways to affect them today.
Humphries mocked by Toronto Raptors fans with Kim Kardashian signs
It's hard enough coming back from a nasty injury like a sprained left shoulder, but no athlete enjoys getting mocked even while sitting on the bench. Humphries got an earful of that from an unusually spirited Toronto Raptors crowd who seemed more interested in heckling him than watching their team play. Among their deliciously harsh jabs at Humphries included a pair of large Kim Kardashian signs waved from the crowd just ten minutes into the game. It shouldn't come as a surprise since Humphries played two seasons with Toronto from 2007 to 2009. Perhaps their fans were still bitter about his exit, or simply they got tired of watching their team lose, which it ended up doing to the New Jersey Nets that day. Even so, Kris Humphries can expect hundreds of photos of those signs on the Internet since fans started snapping shots the second they appeared. Does the young power forward regret touching the Kardashian fruit yet?
Bush may have sparked Kim's Twitter volleys with Amber Rose over Kanye West
Reggie Bush has explained time and again that he just wants to play football. He's tired of answering the Kardashian question. It's easy to feel for him but the former Heisman trophy winner and current Miami Dolphin can't deflect all the blame for the mess that follows him into the New Year. According to rumors Kim was extremely embarrassed when she attempted to start things back with Bush last year. Reggie didn't snap at the bait, and the snub may have made Kardashian a little bitter. As a subtle piece of revenge, Kim allowed her ex-boyfriend to get dragged into the escalating Twitter war between her and Amber Rose about whether Kim cheated on Bush with Kanye West. Whether true or not, it's just more media attention Reggie can do without. He wants his mind focused on his future with the Miami Dolphins and instead he must constantly quell rumors that he and Kim still having anything to do with each other.
Pushing the Amber Rose and Kanye West mess aside, the subtle but obvious pot shots won't stop between Kim Kardashian fans and her two former lovers. Kris Humphries can't buy a break in the win column or even with his health. Reggie Bush prefers celebrating life with his new team and instead keeps making headlines for a relationship that ended two years ago. Such is the power that the forbidden Kardashian fruit apparently possesses. Will another soon dare to take a bite?
