The so-called friend believes the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star 'will get a good laugh' when she sees the photos, one of which shows her estranged husband in his undies.
Kris Humphries may not get any support from Kim Kardashian's camp for his recently unveiled sexy shots. Asked for comment about the pictures taken for WestEast magazine's upcoming issue, a so-called friend of the reality TV star tells The Huffington Post, "The pictures are ridiculous."
The pal even accuses the New Jersey Nets player of trying to gain publicity with the spread as saying, "[The pictures] show how far Kris is willing to go to remain in the public spotlight." The friend additionally believes that Kim will laugh at them, claiming, "I haven't spoken with Kim about them, but you know she will get a good laugh when she sees them."
Kris did the photo shoot with NYC photographer Christopher Logan in New York City at the Night Hotel. In one of the images, the 27-year-old hunk has his face painted and poses in skivvies while baring his chest in a half-zipped jacket. Another picture, meanwhile, shows him in James Bond-style tux and holding a gun.
An insider claimed the basketball player was interested in doing the shoot because "he thought it would be a fun thing to do." The source added, "He's a guy, so the action figure theme was appealing. Plus, he wanted to help out his friend, stylist Derek Warburton, who is WestEast's fashion director."
His representative additionally denied that Kris was seeking "revenge" with the pictures. "The allegations that he's seeking revenge with this photo shoot are false and we remain adamant that personal issues will be handled by his legal team and not in the media," the rep stressed.
