Kim K's BFF

I Gave Kris a $5k Wedding Gift

... and I Want It Back!!!

3/6/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Humphries is a no-good wedding gift HYPOCRITE ... so says Kim Kardashian's BFF, who claims he dropped $5,000 on a special marital gift for Kris ... but the NBA star has still never offered to give it back.

TMZ spoke with Jonathan Cheban ... Kim's close pal who's often featured on the Kardashian reality show ... who tells us he gave wedding gifts to both the bride and the groom .. with Kris receiving a $5,000 gift card to YSL.  Not too shabby ...

Cheban says he was down to let Humphries keep his gift when the marriage went bust ... until Kris criticized Kim's post-split gift policy. Now, he's demanding Kris return the card ASAP. 

We broke the story ... Kim decided to keep all of the gifts because she believes it's proper wedding etiquette. And for good measure, she cut a check to the Dream Foundation charity for TWICE the monetary value.

But Kris felt that wasn't good enough ... and believes Kim should send everything back to the guests.

Cheban tells us ... as long as Humphries has the YSL card, he's in no place to judge ... and should keep his mouth shut ... telling us, "Kim did the HONORABLE thing."

Usually all the gifts go to the same place at the same time so it is doubtful that Kris ever received anything from this fellow...and I never heard (and do not understand) individual gifts for a wedding anyway so have some doubt about this man's story!

Does this mean he doesn't think Kim's donation is enough to satisfy the gift givers, so they should all get their gifts back just as Kris H says? Did Kim give back Cheban's gift to her yet? And if the worth of Cheban's gifts are in that ballpark - does this mean that perhaps his BFF Kimmie has underestimated the total value of all the wedding gifts a tad? Hmmm?

RaineeDrops your right. "When people give wedding gifts you have a party record the gift and who gave it and send out a PERSONAL HAND WRITTEN THANK YOU for the specific gift given." That's how it's done in the United States of America. If the marriage doesn't last more than three months you return the gifts. Personal gifts should be returned by the person who called off the marriage, the jilted partner gets to keep gifts if they want.

What a judgemental little queer man. Birds of a feather. Kim and her goonies keep trying to trash Kris but it's backfiring and we can all see who the real trash is in this fiasco.

Mike saying that he got calls from others who gave 2 gifts one for Kim and one for Kris is balls. the whole wedding was under Karsashian CONTROL and somebody really believes Kris could just take one tiny thing from their prperty.
Did they ever sent him the money for the E! Wedding . He is lucky that he didn't send his peronal stuff to her home , he woud never see it again .

KIM has nothing to offer beside following her moms instruction , hanging out with Paris and leaking her Sextape was all her Moms order

Individual wedding gifts for the bride and groom? Isn't supposed to be a gift for both the bride and groom to share together as a couple after they are married!?!? Oh yea, right, her odd little friend knew they weren't going to be a couple for very long since he knew it was fraud. Kim K and her friend just show over and over, you can have all of the money in the world and still not have an ounce of class.

Shame on her for keeping those gifts (love how in the thank you note it says MY gifts at MY wedding, like Kris wasn't part of it at all. Kinda lends again to she knew it was fraud). My best friends tell me when I am wrong and acting inappropriately...maybe Kim needs a true friend instead of ass kissers to do the same.

TMZ...please stop sucking up. It's repulsive.

The gifts were for the ceremony, which happened, so Kris is wrong again. He is the one who was dishonest about being nice enough to Kim so that she oculd stay married to him. He should return his gift card also if he is so pompously giving out instructions, but as all true hypocrites, he isn't in it for the morality.


People don't want their gifts back. They don't want to have to return things that were selected especially for someone else. He is just trying to humilaite Kim some more. She has so much more sense than he does, he should shut up and listen to her if he wants to seem intelligent or to have a concience.


Jonathan is 100% correct here but it will mean nothing to this man and his supporters because they are just in it to smear Kim, not to make this wold a more moral or Christian place. That they even say that is pathetic. They make Christianity look like a cover for conniving greedy spiteful behavior.


If Kris is so pure and innocent, why did he even marry a divorced woman when he knew she was divorced? He has very selective morality and it all seems to favor what he wants. He reminds me of Htiler in that way. I think he is out to exterminate Kim and her family like the rest of the clan of haters on here who follow them around with their put downs and verbal assaults.


What is his problem? He can't stand to see successful women? He wants to highlight his mother baking cookies instead? Kim was the one who fell head over heels and got into this mess. He is the one just tripping over himself trying to make her look bad from day one. Thank God for people who cared enough about Kim to take her side even when she was losing her mind from his constant abuse. I think Khloe had her back all along.

First of all, I hate them all; but why didn't Kris have any say in the matter as to what should be done with the gifts in the first place? They weren't HER gifts they were THEIR gifts, but apparently its all about her again.


He is actually right in this case. She is soooo tacky for not returning all the gifts instead of taking a nice big tax right off for a charitable donation. So in true Lard-assian style, she is making money off the deal and trying to polish that turd of a repuation of hers. "Oh look I gave to charity!", (something she does every tax season)

She should be embarrassed. Very tacky.

Kris H is not obligated to return the gift. Kim K only gave the gifts back in a such a public way to garner some postive publicy. Period.

Kris said from the beginning the gifts should be returned. The gifts were in Kim K's possession, ergo, KK is a total skank.
