Kris Humphries & Kim Kardashian’s Ex Ray J Have Awkward Encounter

NBA player Kris Humphries, the husband of Kim Kardashian, reportedly had an awkward encounter with Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend Ray J during a flight on Sunday from Los Angeles to New Orleans, according to the New York Post‘s Page Six.

Ray J, who arguably helped launch Kim Kardashian’s career after her infamous sex tape was released, was sitting across from Humphries during the Delta flight and reportedly moved to a seat in front of Ray J because of how awkward the situation was, only for the songwriter to make it more awkward by approaching Humphries and congratulating him on marrying his ex-girlfriend.

At first, the Post reports, Humphries pretended to not know who he was, before Ray J was quoted saying, “Come on, you know who I am. I just want to say congratulations.” At that point, Humphries gave up the game and said, “Oh yeah, yeah, I’m sorry, I know who you are.”

It may just be a big coincidence, but following the incident, TMZ has reported that a mysterious “lawyer” is looking to take that very tape that Ray J had with Humphries’s now wife and wipe it off the Internet. While the lawyer didn’t reveal if Kardashian or Humphries was behind it, people suspect that they may be because they don’t want their newly bonded families to see the tape, which was first released in early 2007.
