Check out the exclusive interview with Life & Style, Kris Humphries‘ father, William Humphries, who’s coming to the defense of his son about the highly publicized divorce from Kim Kardashian.

He claims that Kris was completely blindsided about the news, and how his son is coping:

“There was never a discussion about it — it just came out of nowhere and blindsided Kris,” William claims in the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now. “How could someone do that? Kris was completely surprised. The news was already published before he found out!”

While a rep for Kim insists Kris, 26, did know the divorce was coming, friends and family say Kris, now back in his hometown of Chanhassen, Minn,. is still heartbroken. “He’s hurting, but we’re here for him,” William reveals. “It’s nice that he’s here [in Minnesota] with family during this time.”

Kris was so hurt by the news that he refused to even speak to his wife — until she surprised him by flying to Minnesota on Nov. 6 to hash out the details of the divorce. “Kris told me that Kim was texting him a lot, but he wouldn’t respond,” his friend tells Life & Style. “They did speak briefly the day the split was announced — but only because Kim was apparently pissed that Kris had released his own statement.”

“It’s not a nice situation. No matter how you look at it, he’s going through a divorce,” William adds, I’m getting vibes from William that he really wanted to say something else, like F*ck her, but he kept it cool.
