If you were considering inviting Kanye West to your wedding (you do you...), you might want to think twice. It may come as no surprise considering the guest in question, but when the officiant addresses the crowd, saying, "Speak now or forever hold your peace," there's a solid chance Kanye might pull a 2009 VMA reenactment. I'm gonna let you finish, but... It turns out he almost pulled a similar wedding-stopping stunt before, back when his now-wife Kim Kardashian was set to wed Kris Humphries!

On a recent episode of Kocktails With Khloé, the hostess had both her big sister and her brother-in-law, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, on the show where the latter actually opened up on his wife's infamously short-lived marriage to Atlanta Hawks basketball player, Kris Humphries. And from the sound of it, West seemed none too pleased with the match-up back in the day. Guess he knew that he was meant to be with Kim K all along!

Before Saint West, North West, and one epic European wedding extravaganza could all come to be, the rapper knew he had to put an end to this whole Humphries foolishness. In order to try to stop to their 2011 "I do's," Kanye went to some great lengths. The situation even lead him to purchasing his first ever cell phone! "I got a phone because somebody decided they wanted to marry Kris Humphries," West hilariously said on the show. "I looked on the Internet, and there was [Kim] with some extremely tall person. I was like I need to call her or something."

The man had a strategy. He began texting Kim certain photos (the totally suitable-for-work kind) that he thought that would dissuade her from tying the knot. "I started sending her pictures of certain basketball players that used to be cool and that now they wear their pants all the way up to here," West said, gesturing to his chest. "Like, 'This is your future!'"

Although Kim did end up marrying Humphries, something West had said must have stuck with the reality star because, 72 days later, she was back on the market and now five years later, her and Kanye are still going strong — with two adorable kids, no less! Just think: If West never got his first cell phone, possibly none of this would've ever come to be...
