Kris Humphries to auction off engagement ring he gave Kim Kardashian
Nice sweater bro.
This is the kind of crap you get to talk about when your team makes a trade to acquire a guy who's best known for once being married to a reality TV star for 72 days. From the U.K.'s Mail Online.com:
The NBA star is said to be selling the Lorraine Schwartz ring that he gave to Kardashian at an upcoming Christie's auction in New York. The ring is expected to sell for between $300,000 and $500,000- which is less than a quarter of the price that the ring was said to have cost originally.
An 'impressive' ring made by Lorraine Schwartz, a designer and Kardashian family friend, is featured as part of the upcoming October 15 auction titled 'Bright and Beautiful'. Humphries has not publicly stated that he is selling his ex's ring, and the owner of the item is only listed as the 'property of a gentleman', but the dimensions of the sparkler are the exact same as that of the ring that once belonged to Kardashian.
Kardashian fought to keep the ring in the divorce but it was awarded to Humphries. It ended up going to him in the divorce because he argued that their marriage was a sham and she did not deserve to keep the ring as a result.
Luckily for Kris he can focus on $12 million the Celtics are going to pay him this year, rather than the million and a half he's going to lose on the ring.
