Kim K's BFF

I Gave Kris a $5k Wedding Gift

... and I Want It Back!!!

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."

Jonathan what a good friend you are to Kim. I don't know of to many people that would put themselves through this much humiliation and public scutiny just to keep a friendship. You are making a complete fool of yourself with your childish games. I know Kim's PR team probably pays you a lot to plant these rediculous stories, but come on, grow up and stop being Kim's scapegoat. Kim is doing a good job of bringing herself down, she doesn't need you along for the ride. You may think you're her hero for taking the fall, but everything you post makes the world hate her more. Go find something to do with your life besides playing puppet to a porn queen you may find there's more to life than being a Kartrashian. You better think twice the next time you defend your BFF because I guarantee you will get the same backlash. Is she really worth it??

Jonathan Cheban is an ego maniac just like his friend Kim Kartrashian....this two crave for attention, what a bad public relations representation of Jonathan's' firm. These two need to go away, they made enough money on stupid people that admire them for what? I don't know, because clearly they are liars, self-centered ego maniacs.

I'll bet she's in here reading all these comments crying her eye's out because nobody is buying her BS, why else would her little friend call TMZ? They obviously read it every day and know what the public thinks..they are so flipping pathetic. Wish they would go away already, this family sucks. Poor Bruce, his poor little girls will be such skanks when they grow up too.

The gifts need to go back to the people who gave the gifts PERIOD! What she did is NOT proper etiquette. She also gets to claim that big ole charitable gift on her taxes, doesn't she? Just so wrong..,

The proper thing to do would have been to return the wedding gifts - not keep them and write out a check to charity which she can claim on her income taxes - what a fame seeking, fat a$$, horse faced w^%ore Kim is - God I hate those Kardashians!

this Cheban guy is the camilla parker bowles in this marraige I would have thought the charitable donation kim
gave would have covered this gift but if your real motive is attention this guy wins again get a life who cares what you think or gave

Giving a seperate gift to the bride and groom should be evidence in itself that the marriage is a fraud even in hollywood is there one couple to back up that claim that people send gift seperate to the bride and groom. How much did jonathon allegedly spend on kims gift what he bought her and where he bought it prove it with recipts because i will bet anybody at TMZ INCLUDING HARVEY WHO HAS THE MONEY ANY AMOUNT THEY WANT FOR A PERSONAL BET OR TO CHARITY OF THERE CHOICE THAT JONATHON DID NOT PAY FOR THE GIFT IT WAS INCLUDED IN THE PUBLICITY THAT KIM K GAVE EITHER FROM TWEETS OR HER SHOW.

I am so sick of this , its like watching 5 year olds in grown ups bodies , Kim is a spoiled brat , playing barbie bride at her age , she only got married because she wanted to have a big party and look pretty, she didnt think how mad people would get and now she wants people to feel bad for her, she thinks just because she threw a few bucks to charity it will make her look good, but i doesn't! she should donate the cost of the whole wedding to sick kids or WWF.....
