Kris Humphries' New Manager Choice Proves He Really Is 'Mr. Kardashian'

keeping up with the kardashians kris jennerNow that Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian are husband and wife, the game is changing for the NBA player. You know the joke that Kris just became "Mr. Kim Kardashian"? Well, there may be a lot of truth to that. PLUS, it sounds like the person really wearing the pants in this freshly minted relationship is none other than the athlete's new mother-in-law, Kris Jenner! A family friend recently divulged to The Huffington Post, "Kris runs the entire family like a business, and that’s why they are all so successful. Now that Kris [Humphries] is married to the family's biggest asset, Kris [Jenner] is going to make sure that she is making all the business decisions."

WHOA! What will the head honchos over at the NBA make of this? Are they preparing to eventually cough up more moolah for Kris's Nets contract? How 'bout all of the merchandising deals he's bound to land as a result of Jenner's aggressive wheeling and dealing? And is his former manager punching a wall somewhere?!

We all assumed merchandising, product endorsement, and all sorts of entertainment deals were in Humphries' future. It doesn't matter that reality TV has been a death sentence for many a celebrity marriage. Or that "Kris Loves Kim" couture is probably the cheesiest thing in the whole entire world, and he's bound to get teased by fellow ballers. It doesn't matter at all, because it's going to SKYROCKET his net (no pun intended) worth.

Just look at what Kris did with Khloe's hubs, Lamar Odom. Soon after they tied the knot, mom-ager Kris held court over his business matters and landed a fragrance deal, as well as the E! show, Khloe & Lamar. Kim's new hubby's fate is to head in the same direction.

More scoop from the Jenner-Kardashian-Humphries insider:

Kris is already in early negotiations to brand the newlywed couple today with fragrance deals and other endorsements. She isn’t going to let some other manager with a different agenda get in the way of that. The amount of money this couple has already made from selling coverage of the wedding is millions and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Expect his and her clothes, towels, watches, shoes, and by the time they have a baby together, forget it. They will be able to buy the bank.

YOW! I mean, we kinda already knew this, right, but getting confirmation of it is just a little mind-blowing. Mostly because it seems extreme to think Kris is just handing control of his career completely over to his new MIL. Eesh! Most men I know aren't even keen to spend more than the length of a dinner (if that) with their MIL! Let alone allow her to run their entire financial portfolio. But, I guess Mama Jenner has a pretty amazing track record, so in this case, Kris would probably be a complete fool not to let his MIL run the show. Plus, it's not like he didn't know what he was getting himself into when he married the reigning Princess of Reality TV.

Are you surprised Kris Jenner is becoming Kris Humphries' manager?
