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.

Now, why all of this is her thought?! I started to watch KK about 3 months ago, just around the time Kris and Kim met in LA and traveled with her family. There was not sparkled and any kind of communication (beside sex) between them - I couldn't believe, he proposed. Their engagement was short and even then they didn't live at the same city. It was obvious they didn't know each other. She was preoccupated with the wedding, and he was always angry, thinking how to take control. He didn't like her family,not even her herself. It was painful to watch, I knew this marriage will never work. They both are equally responsible - they both didn't take enough time to know each other, resolve their problems, talk about the future etc. Anyway, with Kris character, unwillingness and obsession of being in charge he will never find a wife ... maybe money will help if he has a lot, a lot, a lot.

Is that why she ran back to be with Kris. Can't the E network get shows on their network? Kim and your family are over. Soon to be a trivia game answer.

Give the ring back. You didn't take his last name. You gave away all the gifts to charities. Now the thing to do is to return the ring or pay for the ring. You have no shame girl. How do you recover from an all time low??? If you have any decency left, return the ring and call it stupid adventure as you already have.

Kim and her sisters are so completely narcissistic. She got married only for ratings and money. If men were smart they would run the other way. The best thing the public can do is NO*****ch her shows, NOT buy her perfume, NOT buy her clothes, and STOP caring. When the money stops, then what will Kim and her sisters do??

A clause in the pre- nup for the ring? Yep, this was a sham of a wedding. She had no intention of staying married to this man. She just needed something to boost the ratings or her profit margin. Now we all should come up with some sort of scheme to make us a famous "socialite".

I am interested to know how this family has soooo much money to spend millions on a wedding? I know her dad was a s*** bag lawyer with no morals, but did he make that much money?

What a greedy, selfish, money hungry pig she is. The whole family should be ashamed of themselves.

If there was a clause like this in the prenup, she knew she wasn't in this for the long haul. That should have been his first clue. Poor guy.

Good luck Kris! Distance yourself from this low life family. Go to gopetition dot com and tell E! to remove all things Kardashian from their lineup. Boycott all stores, sponsors and products Kardashian. Hit em in the wallet and perhaps they will go away.
