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 am so appalled at these ingrates we call The Kardashians. Obama is correct in banning his children from watching them. This divorce would never have been so scrutinized had she not not spent millions on this wedding. Although, it is her right to spend her money however she wishes, please don't expect the public to feel sorry for you. Although I am lucky as my husband is very successful, I NEVER throw money around in this poor economy where people are continuously suffering. Even Kate Middleton had enough class and dignity to downplay her own wedding out of courtesy for the people suffering in this economy. PLEASE Kardashians, just go away...........

Do you have eyes?    

The Kardashian named is now equated with grifters, gypsies and fraud. Kris's name is Jenner, how convenient.

FORGET THE RING AND WEDDING OF KIM KARDASHIAN. KIM SAYS, AND I QUOTE 'I MARRIED FOR LOVE'. SO WHY AFTER 72 DAYS DID SHE FILE FOR DIVORCE? LOVE IS NOT LIKE WATER THAT YOU TURN OFF AND TURN ON. THIS IS DISGRACEFUL, A MOCKERY, A LIE, ALL FOR MONEY AND SHE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HERSELF. IF YOU WERE 'IN LOVE THE DAY YOU WERE MARRIED YOU SHOULD STILL BE IN LOVE. SHE DOES NOT DESERVE KRIS HUMPHRIES. HE IS TOO NICE FOR HER. SHE IS ALL ABOUT MONEY AND GOES TO ALL LENGTHS OF GETTING IT INCLUDING HER SCREWED UP FAMILY. THEIR QUALITIES DO NOT REPRESENT MOST AMERICANS AND THANK GOD MOST AMERICANS DO NOT CONDUCT THEIR LIVES THIS WAY. "AMERICANS ARE THE 'SALT OF THE EARTH'!! TAKE THESE PEOPLE OFF THE TV AND BRING TO THE TV HEALTHY PROGRAMS FOR OUR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TO WATCH AND GROW FROM. NOT THIS DYSFUNCTIONAL CRAP WHICH TEACHES LYING, HATE, FOUL LANGUAGE ETC. KRIS HUMPHIES SHOULD RUN AS FAST AS HE CAN FROM THIS BUNCH!!!

She is a total joke. She is the reason men have trouble respecting some women. Total loser that gets by on looks. When she gets old, karma. As for the ring: give it back, you don't deserve it. Yeah right, married for love, please. Everyone could you didn't, joke! Kris, hope you hit it, sad that you fell for what was clear to every guy!

common sense    

That's a lie, Kim paid for her own ring and she just doesn't want people to find out the truth about how Kris H. didn't buy it. I mean come on do you think a guy who is worth 3m is going to buy a 2m dollar ring?

Her motives are now crystal clear: sham wedding all the way. Who the hell talks about buying a wedding ring back in the early throes of love? Kris it's cursed, have it blessed or melt it down. Don't give this ring to your next love.

Who is leaking these stories and what is the pay? This truly is inside information.

OMG Harvey get new sourses!!!!!! The ring was already her's back in 2007 you guys need to update your information and get it right. Also the reason Kourney hasn't been seen or heard from is because they are palnning her wedding special to Scott and if she shoots her mouth off it could ruin the ratings for her. Also Kris Jenner who has alway*****ed Scott and called him a douch bag is going around on her book tour saying what a great dad he is and how he has changed LOL Please it's because once again she can't hate the guy and watch her other money hungry daughter walk down the isle while making millions of dollars off another SCAM. Harvey and TMZ get some new sourses and again wake up you guys cater to this joke of a family get a back bone and see them for what they are.

LIKE MOTHER LIKE DAUGHTER. Unfortunately, Robert Kardashian failed to see K becoming s sordid clone of her mother. Kris Kardashian Jenner is a prime example of the growing CANCER in our beloved country. Her daughters did not have a brain among them to realize how her sick mind craved worldwide attention. She has played them like a violin under the pretense of, Mama knows Best. She smiles thru her plastic face as if they are the victims of this family fiasco. So, now comes the daughter she shares with her spineless so called, "husband" to help bring in more profits. Sadly, there are still some fans who do not have the intelligence to realize her schemes. She manipulates, she schemes, she lies, all for the almighty dollar.
