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.

Blah    

We all know Kim bought the ring, and everything else, so Kris isn't losing out on anything. The entire relationship was a publicity stunt, and Kris was the only idiot willing to take the bait.

Stating the obvious here, but EVERY aspect of this story WAS and IS a publicity stunt. It has always been merely fodder for their ridiculous "reality" show...the drama, the over-the-top build-up to the over-the-top wedding, the pre-nup agreement, the divorce and ring hype...all part of the ever-unfolding "suspense-filled" plot. Why am I even commenting? I guess I am a glutton for punishment...

I would not want her money I would take the ring back because that would hurt her more than anything because she is not going to give him any money I hope her family and her get everything that is coming to them and I mean everything, I wish they would jsut go away

Smarter than you    

Whats with all the poor Kris H talk? He was in on it too, and if 26 year old American man with cable tv thought he was entering a legitimate marriage after a few months (I mean she didn't propose to herself people) then thats his dumbass fault. American has never been a kind place for a sucka and it never will be. He was in on it or he is a moron and so is his mama!!!!!!
