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.

I LOVE IT! If this story is true, I think it's great, and shows just how self centered KK is! Kris Humphries, should take the money and be better off for it! KK can always be reminded of what she did, everytime she wears or looks at the ring! KK, you are truly a narcissist! (an exceptional interest in or admiration for oneself, esp one's physical appearance)

The night before she announced the divorce Kim was out showing off and partying without a care in the world. As soon as she got a whiff of the bad press she's all "devastated", "can't function" and "going into hiding". Seems the public were smarter than Kim thought. Good. I hope she ends up on the public most repulsive women list along with Nadya Suleman, Kate Gosselin, Casey Anthony and Lindsay Lohan and everyone boycotts her and she becomes a nobody. It is disgusting that a woman ever got to be a celeb for having a fat ass and being the daughter of a murderer's attorney.

Negotiating a "buy out" clause for an engagement ring? Real classy. Obviously she loved the ring, not the dude, and this whole thing was one big scam. I really wish E! had the sack to cancel her show and send her back to oblivion where she belongs.

I had read somewhere that she wanted to keep the ring cuz it was sentimental to her. Sentimental to her my A**. She should return the gifts not just donate money in the amount of the gifts to charity cuz then mommy manager will claim that as a charity donation on her taxes. I am so sick of hearing about her and this whole family don't we have better and more important things going on in the US other than this.

I won't believe Kim paid for it until Kris said he got his money back.

Kim is a liar and a man eater.

@#49 - Agree - I really think the marriage was just a young, dumb mistake on Kris's part. I think the Kardashian's let him think it was real and he wanted to believe it was (let's face it, how many people his age if selected for some sh*t like this would honestly have turned it down?). Kris - just learn from the mistake. You don't need reality TV fame. Find yourself a real girlfriend (preferably one in the six foot range huh?).

"Kim would have been the proud owner outright, because once the became man and wife," That word is supposed to be THEY you Idiots! Who writes this crap??!!!
And P.S. This just means that Kim bought the ring herself for her Wedding, please don't Act like Kris Humpreas wasn't in on it. Let's stop with the "Oh poor Kris Crap" it's all bullcrap!!!!
