Come Aug. 20, socialite Kim Kardashian will become “Basketball Bride” Mrs. Kris Humphries.
Of course, that doesn’t mean that her ex is going to let a little thing like wedded bliss get in the way of his belated campaign for her heart.
Cue Joni Mitchell: “Don’t it always seem to go / That you don’t know what you got till it’s gone…”
Kardashian is set to marry NBA hoopster Kris Humphries in front of stars like Kanye West and Justin Bieber in Monceito, California later this month. But when the minister gets to the “Does anyone object to this man and this woman being joined together in holy matrimony?” part of the ceremony, there’s a good chance Super Bowl champion Reggie Bush might actually speak up
That’d make damn good TV, right?
Reggie and Kim broke up over a year ago — Thanks in large part to the NFL star’s affair with Florida escort Carmen Ortega… — but now that Kim’s about to tie the knot with someone else, Reg has been texting and calling the buxom brunette, relentlessly trying to talk her out of this wedding.
“He’s been sending text messages to Kim and leaving her voicemails, telling her she’s making a mistake and that he’s the one for her,” an insider reveals to Life & Style Magazine. “In the past, Kim was friendly to Reggie but now she’s stopped responding.”
Just last week, Kim got a call from a friend relaying a message from Reggie at the most inconvenient of times — while she was at Vera Wang’s New York studio being fitted for her wedding gown!
“It was a friend telling Kim that her ex Reggie Bush needed to talk to her,” a source close to Kim says. “He was begging her to call off the wedding and give him another chance.”
And apparently Reggie’s been texting Kim using a special secret nickname that was just between the two of them. “She used to love that nickname,” Kim’s friend says, “but now that he’s using it when she’s about to get married to someone else, it’s just annoying to her.”
“She was burned by the end of their relationship, and she’s truly moved on,” the friend adds.
Interestingly enough, Reggie is reportedly dating Kim doppelganger Melissa Molinaro. Molinaro, who was featured as a Kim Kardashian-inspired hottie in a few Old Navy commercials last winter, is at the center of a lawsuit between the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and the discount retailer.
