NBA player Kris Humphries claimed "fraud" as the reason for his separation and annulment to reality starlet Kim Kardashian. While that is plenty interesting, Humphries' response to a gossip report is equally notable.

Star Magazine has blasted a huge headline: "Kim's Bombshell: KRIS IS GAY!" The tabloid claims Humphries wouldn't touch her after the honeymoon and he is now vowing to destroy the Kardashians.

A Humphries representative says the tabloid report is not true. The New York Post ran a statement from the free agent forward's publicist that declares the allegations from Star Magazine's story are "completely false and ridiculous. He is not gay."

Kardashian and Humphries split after just 72 days of wedded bliss. Kris believes he was used as a plot line for the Kardashians' reality show, according to TMZ.

Mets fans will remember former catcher Mike Piazza responding to swirling rumors that he was gay by emphatically stating, "I'm not gay. I'm heterosexual," to reporters on the field before a 2002 game against the Phillies.
