Kris Humphries, the basketball star who was married to Kim Kardashian for, what, 10 minutes, has sold his Miami Beach condo for a hefty profit.

NBA journeyman Humphries, who now plays for the Boston Celtics, sold his two-bedroom, 1,560-square-foot condo at the Blue Diamond, 4779 Collins Ave., for $1.7 million, according to Miami-Dade County records.

Humphries originally bought the 42nd-floor pad for $990,000 in December 2007.

In time, Humphries married Kardashian in a made-for-reality-TV hitch-up in August 2011.

Seventy-two days later, the two were separated. It took another year for the divorce to become final.

Humphries, 29, claimed Kimmie married him to boost ratings of her reality series Keeping up With The Kardashians.

Humphries’ big condo sale, meanwhile, was much more private than their marriage: The condo was never listed with real estate agents.

While Humphries appeared to spend quite a bit of time in SoBe at first, he has been seen haunting beach nightclubs only sparingly as of late.

Pretty Auction

Funky auction in Davie over the weekend.

The belongings of members of the late 1990s R&B band Pretty Ricky were sold to fans and gawkers at a house owned by the family of group founder Joseph Smith.

According to records, the band has fallen on hard times and the $600,000 house in the gated community of Imagination Farms is in foreclosure.

But before the bank seizes the crib, the family decided to auction off the contents.

From what the auctioneer says, it was the band’s party house.

“Well, there was a Versace couch that looked like it had gone through quite a few parties,” said Jim Gall, owner of Auction Company of America.

About 200 items were sold, including rare photos, paintings, bronzes and random furniture.

A four panel etched-glass montage of wild African animals went for $1,000 and is expected to be installed in the corporate office of Miami’s Monkey Jungle.

“It’s the first time we auctioned the belongings of a well-known musical group,” Gall said. “It was fun.”

Pretty Ricky was formed in 1997 with five brothers from Davie. The band’s first tune, Grind With Me, shot up to the top of the charts in weeks.

Actress Mia Farrow briefly tore into embattled film director Woody Allen, her companion of 13 years, during an appearance before a Palm Beach group Tuesday.

And in a surprisingly candid admission, she said she owes their four children an apology for not noticing that Allen allegedly abused at least one of them.

Farrow, 69, spoke to The Society of the Four Arts and somewhat opened up about allegations made by her and Allen’s adult daughter Dylan that Allen abused her.

“I spent many years with someone who had no respect for everything I hold sacred,” Farrow said of Allen, without mentioning him by name.

Allen, 78, who’s up for three Oscars Sunday, has accused Farrow of “planting” stories of sex abuse into Coral Springs resident Dylan’s mind.

“All I can say to my children is that I accept responsibility, and I ask them to forgive me for not seeing something so shocking,” Farrow told her Palm Beach audience.
