Kris Humphries is washing his hands of ex-wife Kim Kardashian and sold her massive engagement ring at an auction for $749,000.
The NBA player sold the 16-carat engagement ring he proposed to Kim with at Christie’s house auction in their “Magnificent Jewels” category.
A spokesperson for the auction house released a statement, saying the Lorraine Schwartz emerald-cut bauble “saw active participation in the room, on the phone banks, and from Christie’s LIVE. This impressive diamond ring was sought out by two bidders in the back of the room, one online bidder, and was ultimately won by a bidder on the phone.”
Kris Humphries, who now plays for the Boston Celtics, married the reality star on August 20th 2011 and they infamously split just 72 days later. Of course, their divorce wasn’t finalized until June 2013 when she was already pregnant with Kanye West’s baby.
Kris’ rep said in a statement, “Kris is very pleased with the final result.”
Kris will give a portion of the money to a charity, according to his lawyer.
He adds, “I’m not sure if the ring or its sale helps with the process of moving on. I think he moved on long before the ring was even put into the auction. Kris, being an athlete, is getting ready for an upcoming seasons and ready for life’s lessons as they come along. This whole process was humbling but maturing.”
Kim Kardashian has definitely moved on and welcomed daughter North West with Kanye on June 15, 2013.
