Friends of Kim Kardashian and her basketball beau Kris Humphries say the couple is days away from getting engaged. Kris has reportedly been shopping for rings and plans to pop the question on April 8! But will Kris do to Kim what he did to his ex-girlfriend, Bianka Kamber?
A friend of Bianka’s tells OK! magazine that Kris and Bianka were talking marriage—and then he dumped her out from out of nowhere! “They talked about marriage, big time,” says the source. “He was the one to bring it up. He’d always say, ‘I’d love for you to be the mother of my kids.’”
Kris seemed to be in love. “Kris was the first to say ‘I love you,’” says the friend. “He’d tell her things like, ‘I’ve never known what it was like to fall in love and care for somebody, and if there was ever that feeling, that’s the way I feel about you.’”
“Eventually, [Bianka] was thinking marriage too,” adds the source. “They both wanted a very small, personal, intimate wedding, with just immediate family.”
But then Kris got traded out from the Toronto Raptors and ended up playing for the Nets in New Jersey. That’s when the relationship started to get rocky. Kris planned a trip to go see Bianka in Toronto, but he never showed up. A friend says, ”Bianka’s birthday passed and she never heard from him!”
After Kris moved to Hoboken, N.J., Bianka “had women messaging her, claiming to have been with him, that he was cheating,” says the source.
But now that things are over with Bianka, he’s moved on and is ready to get serious with Kim. “He really cares about her and wants to make it work,” a friend close to the couple says. “He says if fame comes along with dating Kim, then fine.”
Kris is so serious that he’s shopping for a diamond—he’s down to two designers, Neil Lane and Lorraine Schwartz—but this is a big step for the man who used to poke fun at Kim’s reality show.
When he dated Bianka, Kris would make fun of her for watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians by saying, “‘You are watching somebody who’s famous for a sex video.’”
That says a lot about the guy who wants to become the next member of the Kardashian family.
