Kris Humphries is still finding ways to make some money off of his relationship with Kim Kardashian.
Kim's former husband is auctioning off the 20-carat diamond engagement ring that she wore during their infamous 72-day marriage.
Kris isn’t outright listed as its seller, but according to RumorFix, there’s a ring on the market over at Christie’s auction house as of October 15, that matches Kim’s former ring down to the last carat.
A Christie’s rep even confirmed its stature—a 16.21-carat center diamond and two 1.80-carat side diamonds—which are the exact dimensions of her ring…and how many of those just exist?
“It is 100 percent the same ring,” a source told Us Weekly. “Kim has been waiting for the day he would auction it. Everyone always asked what Kim did with the ring—she silently gave it back over a year ago! And Kris waited until the divorce was final to sell it.”
She was originally going to keep the ring, making a big deal about it, which only prolonged her divorce proceedings. Then, as her due date neared, suddenly, out of nowhere it seemed, the papers were squared away and she and Kris where officially divorced.
This report seems to suggest that Kim caved on keeping the ring in her possession, which obviously works to Kris’ benefit because he can do what he wants with it. Like auctioning it off to the highest bidder.
It’s expected to get anywhere between $300,000 to $500,000 at auction (The original price was $2 million). But now that the rumor is out that someone can own this piece of “history,” maybe it’ll go for a little bit more…
