Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ divorce has been drawn out pretty long for a marriage that only lasted for 72 days. Kim’s camp has always claimed that it was Humphries who was holding up the divorce, while Kris’ camp claims he’s just trying to make sure he makes out with his fair share, something Kim is speculated as trying to avoid. Humphries main complaint about the marriage is that he think it was nothing more than a scam and publicity stunt for reality television purposes, while some even allege that the basketball player thinks Kim wasn’t being faithful and was having an affair with Kanye West, her current beau.
Just when things seem to be moving forward, it being reported that Kim is now the one holding the divorce proceedings up because she doesn’t want to hand over her 20.5 carat diamond engagement ring. The ring is said to be worth around $2 million but Kris is said to have gotten it at a steal for $750,000. Kris allegedly feels that Kim should give the ring back since the marriage didn’t last, and she’s apparently moved on with Kanye, therefore losing any emotional attachment to the piece of jewelry.
According to Radar Online:
“Kris is adamant that he wants the ring back,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com. “And it’s becoming a real sticking point between his and Kim’s attorneys. She has made it plain that she has no intention of returning it though and feels she is within her legal right to refuse as she went through with the wedding. However, Kris contends that the marriage was a total sham and that Kim only wed him for publicity so therefore she has no right to keep such an expensive gift.
“Kris doesn’t understand why Kim would even want to keep the ring anyway. It obviously has no sentimental value as she has publicly declared their wedding as ‘a huge mistake’ and she certainly doesn’t need the money, so why doesn’t she just return it to him?”
The source also tells Radar Online that the battle of the ring isn’t due to him wanting Kim back or being salty that things between the two are over:
“Kris is more than willing, and eager, to end this chapter of his life,” the source says. “But he wants it done on his terms. He thinks Kim tricked him into marrying and he wants his day in court to prove that. There’s no ulterior motive, he just wants the record set straight and what he perceives as a massive wrongdoing against him put right.”
In related news, it was reported by TMZ that Kanye was deposed on Wednesday. Earlier reports suggested Kanye would most likelt be deposed since Kris heard rumors that Kim slept with Kanye while they were engaged.
