It looks like Boston Celtics forward Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian made some lemonade with the lemon that was their relationship.
According to Arienne Thompson of USA Today, the two auctioned off the engagement ring Kris gave to Kim – a woman made famous for making a sex tape (perhaps the first of many red flags?) – for $749,000. Apparently, the ring had only been expected to net $300,000-$500,000.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries got rid of the insane sparkler he proposed with back in 2011 for an equally insane price at auction Tuesday.
The humongous diamond ring was the last lot in the “Magnificent Jewels” auction at Christie’s this morning. It fetched $749,000, far more than the auction house’s pre-sale estimate of $300,000 to $500,000.
Seeing as the 16-carat stone and ring had cost him roughly $2 million originally – and no, that’s not a typo – Humphries still managed to come up on the losing end of this one. Just like trying to marry Kim Kardashian in the first place.
