Kris Humphries, Mikhail Prokhorov has your back. The Nets owner made it clear to the Daily News that he knows about Kanye West's bashing of his power forward and who's he backing. "Kris has nothing to worry about," Prokhorov told the Daily News. "I support my players, and I’m on his side in this epic battle."

Prokhorov, who gave Kris and Kim Kardashian matching Russian fur hats as a wedding gift, refers of course to West's new song, Theraflu. In it, Kanye raps that he could have gotten Jay-Z to fire Kris. Kanye is now famously dating Kim and doesn't like what Kris is leaking about her to the tabloids. Kris has had no public comment on the song, although an "insider" told Hollywood Life he does like another song on Kanye's new album..."Gold Digger."
