It has just been revealed that his estranged wife Kim Kardashian is dating Kanye West after the rapper professed his love for her in a song.

But Kris Humphries is showing the reality star what she has been missing since she filed for divorce after just 72 days of marriage in October.

The basketball player poses in a smouldering shoot for WESTEAST magazine.

The images have a military theme and
see Kris navigating his way through an assault course and posing with a
magazine of bullets slung over one shoulder.

Another
photo sees him reclining on a sunlounger wearing just a leather jacket
zipped halfway up his bare chest and a pair of briefs, as well as combat
boots.

The NBA star’s face is decorated with skin camouflage and a rifle sits on the floor beside him.

The series of images see the hunk pout and pose for the camera, but his time behind-the-scenes was much more light-hearted.

Backstage shots show the New Jersey Nets player larking around with the stylist as they waited patiently for shots to be set up.

His short marriage to Kim left him landing headlines for the wrong reasons, but Kris is likely to have gained a new legion of admirers this week, after making a dedicated fan who is suffering from cancer a guest of honour at one of his games.

And the power forward said the delight was all his when he learned 16-year-old Kaely Kwitek is a massive fan of his and wanted to meet him due to a campaign by her friends.

He said: 'I'm truly honoured that someone with much larger things on their plate feels that my involvement in their cause is important.

'Not many of us can be as strong as she has been. I hope that many more will join me and support Team Kaely.'
