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.

Kim and all the Kardashians are as real as they come. Kim you r amazing and so is courtney khloe kris and bruce.Such a hard work ethic, so funny, so responible. It was real love & kim if something happened then good for you for leaving even though you knew you would have to take all this ridiculousness. Haters much? geesh! Not me I am glad to see a happy healthy fun loving hard working family. Love every minute of it. You are my role models and I am a 45 yr.old women. God bless you and all your charity work and for letting us see so much of yourselves. How many people could be filmed like that and not come out looking like serial killers? Only you guys keep it up!

The Price Disclosed! The ring actually was bought for $900,000 because of a Friend Discount from
Lorrain Schwartz.

It was WORTH 2 Million but bought for less than 1 Million.

I wish the petitioner would stop spamming the comments section, it's such a waste of time to click on them just to find what is already posted multiple times throughout ALL these threads. I would rather take the time to see and read REAL comments. Now I'm not going to bother reading people's responses until the "Ban Kardashian Petition" quits interefering with the posts.

The Kardashian Family are a pack of wolves. They are all trained " Grifters ". There mother or "mothra" is the most stained woman I have ever seen. She is a vulture. Get them off the air. They are trash TV at it's best. BTW Kris your facelift was a wast of money and time. You should have spent that money on therapy for you and your family.

Why doesn't this dumb broad just return the ring to him and be done with it. It's an engagement ring for crying out loud. The two are divorcing. Instead of buying the ring from Kris H. just donate the 2 mil that you would buy for the ring instead. Oh no, wait, because then she wouldn't get anything for it. It's all about material stuff to them. I used to like them, but now the whole family is a scam!

Really?! I am very confused. Why they even talk about the ring? The ring is hers. If he paid for the wedding or they split the bill 50/50 it could be different story, but not necessary. Or, why they are talking about returning wedding gifts? - wedding took place, nobody forced anybody to come, they ate, have good time, everything was prepared and payed for, so why even talk about returning gifts - it's hollywood!!! - did anybody expect the marriage "for ever"??? Really?! Please, give me a break!!!

You read this stuff it makes you wonder who is trying to get the most attention! Kim K. OR kris Jenner but either way I think everyone should write and call, and email SEARS telling them we will not buy anything from them as long as they keep This Reality show and they keep selling anything that has the name of Kardashian on it in thier Stores!!!!!!!

This family is without any form or class. Give the ring back and try and have a little class.

The woman gets rewarded for making a sex tape with a tv show. What is this country coming too?

Everyone needs to stop watching the show, stop buying clothes from her clothing line and anything else this family endorses.

Let them go bankrupt like the rest of the country.

Maybe he didn't pay for the ring. So what? These jerkoff's are pretending that this sham of a wedding was the real deal. They are pretending that the dude gave her this engagement ring. Any other bride would do the honorable thing that give the ring back.

If it's killing Kim and Kris Jenner to give the ring to Kris H. because he didn't pay for it then that's just too dayam bad ladies. That what happens when you put on a sham marriage. These turds think they are such outstanding "businesswoman" Yeah, right.

That ring is just collateral damage. Looks like those KarTRASHians will be out some $$$$ for the ring. I hope Kris H. makes some bucks selling it on ebay.

Can't all of you turds take the "Jenner" name. I'm sure their dad does not appreciate his name being dragged through the mud like this. Oh..wait. He defended a double murderer. AWWW...just nix that suggestion.

If it is written in the prenup,she must buy back the ring, it is very clear this marriage was never intended to last.

Given KK is in love with being in love, it didn't matter who was the groom.

It was 'rumored' that she picked it out and paid for the ring.... think about it... Kris is 'frugal' w/his $$$$ would he have spent 2 million on a ring w/a lockout in site?
