Kris Humphries has allegedly been taken for a major ride by a scam artist, and we're not referring to his wife or his in-laws.

Humphries, a free agent forward who most recently played for the New Jersey Nets, and is perhaps best known as reality television star Kim Kardashian's better half, has reportedly been hustled out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by an investment scam artist.

TMZ.com reports that Andrey Hicks ran a million-dollar investment scam that ensnared Humphries.
Andrey C. Hicks was a guest at Kim and Kris Humphries televised wedding bonanza in August ... and sat right behind the happy couple during the rehearsal dinner.

Officials believe Andrey lied to several investors -- including Kris -- telling them, among other things, that he was a Harvard graduate ... when in fact, he was kicked out of the University after 3 semesters for crappy grades. Officials say Andrey only took 1 math class at Harvard ... and got a D-. Officials claim 27-year-old Hicks stole $1.7 million from various investors ... and sources close to Kris tell us the NBA star accounted for hundreds of thousands of dollars himself.

Hicks was arrested in Canada on Friday and charged with wire fraud. Officials believe he was trying to flee to Switzerland. If convicted, Hicks could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Basketball-Reference.com reports that Humphries' career NBA earnings top $16 million. He's also earned approximately $4.3 gazillion dollars by agreeing to turn his life into a soap opera by marrying Kardashian. A 26-year-old free agent, Humphries figures to be in line for a fairly sizeable pay day thanks to the fact that he averaged a double-double (albeit on a terrible team) last season.

In other words, save your tears for someone who needs them. Humphries should emerge from this just fine.

The moral of this sordid story is be very careful who you invite to the rehearsal dinner. Guys are throwing all kinds of lies around the room trying to get some chick back in their hotel rooms. The other lesson to be learned is to never believe a dude that says he's an Ivy League graduate.That's always a red flag that the clown isn't what he says he is.

Shocking that someone intellingent enough to marry one of the vapid Kardashian stooges (not the fat one or the one married to a homosexual, but the one that looks like a man and leaked a sex tape of her banging a dwarf) was still somehow caught up in an investment scam. I assume said scam involved magic beans or a time machine, but don't quote me. Just in case anyone didn't know - and judging by the ratings you don't - E! was actively seeking a basketball player for this strumpet to marry. The only question was which mid-range NBA guy lacked the self esteem to marry the horse-faced Kardashian on a television show no one watches. Enter Kris Humphries! Feel free to google him if you need to. He apparently does exist. And now the poor guy handed his wallet over to the wallet inspector and is out some dough. And we all know what that means...I smell a spinoff!

 I watched Kris when he was a Minnesota Gopher, he was a man among boys!  Getting on Kim K makes him a man above men!  Marrying her makes him an idiot.  I understand why he would want to be with her, because she is beautiful!  If I had his fame and $, I would look for a sweetheart that no one had ever seen before.  Good luck Kris, you F-ed up, but I don't blame ya!

except....

I'll save my tears, as advised by Mr. Golliver, regarding the money, but I'm sorry. I can't help but pity the fool that married THAT ENORMOUS BOOTY. That is more mouth and back-porch than any man should be sentenced to a lifetime of pretending to love. Unless someone can give me a dollar per square inch of her (ENORMOUS) behind that his reality series pays him to kiss. I guess for the right $$ per acre, I'd lick her step daddy's DNA trace off her thighs too. Good luck, Mr. Humphries....
