Found July 18, 2012 on The Other Paper:
Kris Humphries is really feeling his oats after signing a new contract with the Brooklyn Nets this week.

After being trashed in a song by his ex-wife Kim Kardashian's new boyfriend Kanye West, the Nets forward took it upon himself to fire back at the rap star.

Kanye's song "Cold" (originally titled "Theraflu") released in April included the lyrics about the rapper's passion for Humphries' estranged wife: "And I admit I fell in love with Kim/ Around the same time she fell in love with him/ Well that's cool baby girl, do your thing/ Lucky I ain't had  Jay drop him from the team."

The song was frequently played by DJs to taunt  Humphries every time he showed up at nightclubs.

On Tuesday, Humphries— still in nasty divorce court proceedings with Kardashian— signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Nets and didn't waste time taking a shot at his rival West.

"I'm up at Brooklyn," Humphries tweeted before throwing in a back-handed slap at Nets co-owner Jay-Z. '"Lucky I didn't have Jay drop me from the team' lol!"

Humphries is still trying to dissolve his 72-day marriage to Kardashian and the divorce preliminaries have gotten pretty ugly.

Meanwhile, Kim-Kan has been spotted at parties and clubs all over the world.

$24 million can sure give a guy money muscles.
