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.

Kris Jenner can claim all she wants that the ring wasn't worth $2 mill, but on the episode where he perposed, the ring was so expensive that the insurance co. had it shipped by brinks to the dash store. The price quoted on the show for the package was $2 mill. So guess this makes her a big liar.

The ring belongs to her the minute she got married..you only return the ring by law if the wedding is cancelled...so ridiculous..can't believe they went on with the wedding in the first place....so sad that marriage is taken so lightly by some people!

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.

That's a lie. Her divorce papers stated that she keeps the jewelry. Her mother even said she was entitled to it. More damage control. It's not going to work. Be thankful for the money you have because it's over. We'll never believe another word.

I never followed the kard's But when she filed for wedding registry gifts,lost any respect for them. Her house was already in order and was shocked she didnt ask present givers to send monies to their favourite charities. As for the ring, I thought she found out it was a CZ and that was why she divorced hm

She is LYING again. KK had this ring in 2008/9. Just read the folling from:
May 27, 2011: We've been in this business long enough to know that Kim Kardashian would do ANYTHING to stay in the limelight. And coming up with an ENGAGEMENT . . . just as her celebrity was starting to FADE . . . is the kind of ISH we would expect from her.

In 2009, MediaTakeOut.com was one of the FEW places in the world showing photos of Kim wearing an "engagement" ring (See story here). At the time, Kim and her media folks were telling EVERYONE WHO WOULD LISTEN that Reggie had proposed to her.

The truth was that Kim BOUGHT her own engagement ring (or rather, was GIVEN it by a Los Angeles jeweler in exchange for some promotional work) - and she was trying to PRESSURE Reggie to marry her.

Well it appears that Kim may be doing the SAME THING with her new BF Kris Humphries. Cause that "new" ring she's rockin . . . looks a whole lot like the "old" one she was wearing in '09!!!

Members of the press are REQUIRED to credit MediaTakeOut.com for this ORIGINAL REPORT. If you DON'T . . . we will NEVER link to ANY of your original reports EVER

Didn't TMZ also report that she purchased the ring for herself and recycled it through all of her other failed relationships?

Looks like Kim should reduce the amount paid to her attorney by the amount she needs to buy the ring back. He should have known it would revert to her as man an wife. I guess she likes the ring more than she ever liked Kris.
