Kim Kardashian

Must PAY Kris Humphries

to Keep Engagement Ring

11/6/2011 3:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian
is going to shell out some serious dough so she can keep her MASSIVE engagement ring ... and TMZ has learned, the cash is all going to Kris Humphries.

Sources close to the former couple tell us ... it was Kris who originally bought the 20.5 carat diamond stunner ... and Kim loved the ring so much, she included a clause in the pre-nup which allows her to buy the ring from Kris for the original purchase price in the case of a divorce.

Ironically, without a special clause in the prenup, Kim would have been the proud owner outright, because once they became man and wife, the ring would have been Kim's.

Since the couple is now kaput -- the diamond is in Kim's court. We're told KK still LOVES the ring -- and will pay Kris so she can keep it.

As far as price goes -- Kim never disclosed how much Kris plunked down, but according to multiple reports, it's valued around $2 mil.

With this clause (as well as the others that have been made public) and her unwillingness to change her name, its obvious she knew this was going to end in divorce before even walking down the aisle. She didn't even appear remotely jilted by the split... until the media backlash set in.

Hideous.

The whore should just give the ring back instead of keeping it like a trophy.

Proper thing. Pay the man. Then give the gifts back and end your ridiculous show, leave quietly and enjoy your money somewhere away from TV. The USA is trillions of dollers in debt. People are hurting from a long summer of natural disasters no ones in the mood for your overindulgent bull**** anymore. Your free to do it but real class knows flaunting money isnt wise in bad economic times. "The Good Earth" by Pearl S Buck. You should read it while your hiding Kim.

This story gets more crass and materialistic by the hour! Well good for Kris to get compensated for her greed and lack of integrity! And SHAME on her mother, Kris Jenner, for her statement about "Indian givers", saying the ring was a "gift" that "Gimme Kimme More" should be entitled to! I hope this over-the-top wedding fiasco torpedoes their reputations and gets the show cancelled! This is such tasteless, vacuous, conspicuous consumption! And Kris Jenner takes umbrage that Barack Obama doesn't like his daughters watching their show?! She ought to be embarrassed to death to show the world how badly she raised her skanky daughters!

I'll believe it after she pays him the money. Besides paying for the ring, she should apologize to Kris Humphries publicly for what she has done to him. For the lies she & her mother tried to spread about him & his family. The lies they wanted us to believe, but we didn't buy.

I understand the practical necessity of writing prenups, BUT, SERIOUSLY, If you are writing a clause that says in the event of a divorce you can buy out the engagement ring, doesn't common sense kick in and say why are we getting married in the first place, this is insane.
Oh I forgot we have a reality show that we have to fill up with 60 minutes of something other than blah, blah, blah...

Seems to me that the smartest person in this whole mess is Reggie Bush.

I never understood why a woman would want to keep a ring that reminded her of a failed marriage.

Some consolation for Kris. I hope in the clause, she has to pay the taxes on the refund. Hang in there, Kris, your owed more revenue from the profits of the televised wedding and the exclusive photos from People magazine. I'm certain your attorney has your back.

If this girl had a brain she would give the man back his ring. An engagement ring is given as a sign of an intended marriage commitment. This woman knew she would never in a million years stay married to Kris H. Show some real klass for once in your useless life you KarTRA$Hian and give back the ring despite what your obnoxious, drunk of a mother tells you to do.

While you are at it, go away. You and your dumb as a box of rocks mother seemed shocked at the backlash you are receiving. You people seem to forget that the people who watch your crap show and buy your overpiced, crappy products are for the most part middle income, middle Americans. Middle America (as do most people) takes marriage seriously. Your mother shrugged as said "Well, people get divorced all the time". True, BUT NOT AFTER 72 FREAKING DAYS! Kim is behaving like a spoiled little baby. She has never had to work a low paying, disagreable job because she needed the money. Anytime she needed money, her O.J. Simpson-the-killer defending father just opened up his checkbook. She has never had to work at anything & doing what she has the balls to call "work" is NOT WORK! Is it any wonder that after the fun and excitement of the wedding she could not handle the marriage?

Getting hair and makeup done, going to nightclubs, putting your name on some cheap azz polyester clothes in a "kollection" and some rank smelling perfume is NOT "work" hunnie.

I'm sick of all of these klowns. I'm sick of Bruce no-balls Jenner. His awful plastic surgery makes him look like a woman. I'm sick of their horrible, immature, foul mouthed, drunken, money grubbing mother. I'm sick of the tall chubby one and I'm sick of the short one who always has a pissed off look on her face. Her boyfriend looks like a gay serial killer. No wonder most of the world hates Americans. They look at shows like this shiat and think this crap represents the way Americans think and behave. Obama is correct to ban his kids from watching this shiat.

I hate Ryan Seacrest's azz for foisting these azzhole KarTRA$Hian's onto the world.

She should pay him, and give the ring back. If she's so "devastated" by the whole thing, why would she want to keep something that reminds her about it??

Kris Jenner is NOW saying that the ring only cost half of what was reported. (it no longer seems like a good idea to scream to the world that her daughter got a $2 million engagement ring.) Talk about attempts to "spin" things. As for Kim doing the classy thing of giving the ring back? Forget it, folks, this family hasn't done anything classy in years, if ever. And Kim is not going to easily let go of yet another materialistic trophy...the woman and her family are into THINGS, THINGS AND MORE THINGS. The more expensive the better. Pathetic!

How fitting; this superficial woman felt more for the ring than the commitment it represented or the man who gave it to her.

On the other hand, three things I do NOT understand is how she came to be married (Did the man not notice she was shallow and felt nothing for him?), why she wanted to be married and how anyone can see her as a rolemodel.

When i say i dont understand these things I lie a little; I have a pretty good idea HOW, its more the WHY that bothers me; WHY these people are what we look up to most these days

it's really annoying that if you reply to a comment, you then have to write another comment in order to vote on the comments.
