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.

Agree with comments but lets not forget what a total douche bag Humphries was on the show. My husband , who obviously never watches the show all the way through, kept asking "Why the hell is she marrying that idiot, crass, rude, ****y and constantly inappropriate.I am glad she is divorcing him but she needs to come clean re the money and make it right. She should not profit from this large publicity stunt.

Regardless of whether or not there is a clause in the prenup regarding the ring, the moral and ethical thing to do would be to give the ring back to Kris Humphries and give the wedding gifts back to the rightful owners.

Would someone please contact Kim, she doesn,t have to pay anything to her exhusband. Under California State Law at point which they exchanged vows and were pronounced husband and wife, married that ring became 100% sole possession of Kims personal property and Kris Humpries hasn't any legal claim for the ring, Brian

Why would she pay for her engagement ring when she married him? I can understand her returning the ring if she broke off the engagement.

All the money this talent-less greedy moneygrubbing self absorbed shallow pea for a brain bimbo has made and she wants the ring too! where does it end? Enough is enough. She does not deserve the ring. Hell,the ring does not belong to her. You claim to be a "a class act ". You talk the talk now walk the walk. Give Humphries his ring back. Return the wedding gifts to whomever gave to you or donate them to charity . I wish everyone would boycott Kardashian shows and products, you all have made out like a bunch of fat rats now go hide in a corner and gnaw on some cheese .

This is the same skank who went swimming with $75,000 dollar earring on and cried when she lost one, and how could anyone find the missing earring in the ocean off bora bora, but they did so she would quit crying, and people especially children are starving right now, she makes me sick and I hope bad karma pays that whole family a visit. Rubs it in the faces of all about an earring worth $75,000 that she went swimming with them on and lost it but walla they found it !!!! yeah right kimbo

I must've have been paying attention a couple years ago when Kim really came into the Hollywood spotlight. Can someone tell me why she's famous in the first place? I'm going to go out on a wild one here and assume she didn't find a cure for cancer...

Thank you. ITs the right thing to do, if this lady is going through with the divorce. Either be a decent human being and give the ring back or monetary compensation. Kim K. also owes this guy an apology for humiliating him in public. There was no need for Kim K. to handle things the way she did making her divorce public for Humphreys to find out that way. Letter, email, text, whatever, though still cold and unfeeling, would have still been better than Humphreys finding out she was divorcing him from the news media!

LAST I CHECKED IN MY DIVORCE...I DID'NT EVEN WANT THE WEDDING RING; AND IS WAS BEAUTIFUL. MY OPINION...GIVE THE RING BACK TO THE EX...YOU WANT 1 GO GET 1 JUST LIKE IT. WHY WOULD YOU WANT THE RING IF YOUR MARRIAGE GOES SOUTH? THIS STORY IS SO BIZZARE..72 DAYS OF MARRIAGE..I CANT FIGURE THIS ONE OUT. THEY KEEP SAYING KIM IS NOT GETTING PAID FOR THAT WEDDING ON T.V. OMG..I DO THINK SHE GETS ROYALTIES ON THE SHOW...RIGHT? LIKE RE-RUNS. IM NOT EVER WATCHING THIS SHOW AGAIN. ALL DRAMA. WHY DONT THEY START PUTTING MORE MOVIES ON AND GET RID OF THE REALITY T.V. THATS MY OPINION; GEE I COULD BE WRONG, BUT I RATHER DOUBT IT AT THIS POINT....IM DONE WITH REALITY T.V. AND THIS FAMILY...

Great lawyers there, Kim. Why didn't they advise you to be silent as to the ring, when under California law, the ring is a gift and is yours. Not that Kris doesn't deserve the ring back or payment for it...just saying you need to rethink your lawyers!

two million dollars was way too much money to spend on a ring. Especially in todays economy.
