Folding KK preflop: Almost

The hand was from a $20 Re-buy tournament this Saturday on the second hour. blinds were 75-150 I think, MP raised to 399 or something like that (his stack was 30K), I reraise in MP+2 to 1500 with KK, and then the button went all in for 8k, wow, my stack was 12K, back to MP and he went AI instantly for 30K. Yikes (Demontres !!); i took all the time I could, taught button had JJ-QQ or AA, and probably the MP wanted to isolate with something like AK, but the weird first raise may me consider AA. Wow, what to do, I just couldn't fold the KK in a $20 rebuy tournament (even we were on the second hour) and called, MP had AA, button had JJ and that was it, but I almost folded !!!, pretty hard, but sometimes you just have to do it. The only thing for me was AK for MP trying to isolate button thinking I had QQ, but it was just too risky and I had a big stack. What do you think? Do you fold?

How did MP play before this hand? If weird raises were common for him, then you can consider AK and make the pot odds worth the call. If weird raises were not common for him, then it might become a borderline fold. He has to have something strong because two players have shown strength, so it is either AK or a big pair. You might have the odds to do it, but the AK might be diminished in odds by the weird raise (and the fact that you have two other kings).
Also, if he immediately went all in, he might not have AK.
