Kris Humphries Got A $1.25 Million Discount On Kim's Engagement Ring

Kim k engagement ring discount

Remember when Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian were engaged, then got married? Man, those were good times.

Remember that HUGE rock Kim wore around for a little while throughout that process? Well, it turns out that had it not been for such a household name that the NBA player would NOT have been able to afford it!

Sources have revealed that Kris got a MAJOR discount from the jeweler he bought it from. How major? The 20.5-carat diamond Elaine Schwartz ring usually retails for $2 million, but he got it at wholesale cost for $750,000, as sources explained:

"Kris could have never afforded such an extravagant engagement ring for Kim. He paid $750,000 for the engagement ring. Elaine Schwartz gave Kris the ring basically at wholesale cost. The ring would actually retail for $2 million dollars. Kris did have other jewelers reach out to him and offer to give him a ring for free in exchange for publicity, but he didn't want to even pursue that. Kris knew how much Kim loved Elaine's collection, and there was no other option in his mind. Kris absolutely doesn't want the ring back, even though Kim filed for divorce. In his mind, it's her ring, and it was a symbol of his love for her.”

$750K is still a pretty penny though and we would have gladly taken that discount too! Despite claiming it is still a symbol of his love for her, Kris is lucky he didn't shell out the full $2 million!

WTF? Jeweler In Lindsay Case Trying For Book Deal

jeweler wants book deal in lindsay case

Wow. This is so wrong, we can barely even believe it's true!

Literary agent Sharlene Martin has announced that Michael Lohan the jewelery store in Lindsay Lohan's criminal case is trying to get a book deal out of the whole ordeal.

Here's what she had to say about the rep who approached her regarding the book deal:

"He said he is the publicist for the jewelry store, and that they want to do a book about the Lindsay Lohan necklace story."

"I told him, ‘I'm sorry, I don’t see it. This is a moment, not a book.’”

And more from Martin:

"The truth be told…if I were interested I would have asked questions. I represent legitimate clients. You know instantly when someone calls you whether it’s a moment, a minute or whether it has legs as a book. This is a fleeting moment. I don’t see how there is enough to put between the pages of a book.”

Here's what a source from Team Lindsay had to say about it:

"It's absolutely stunning and shocking that they are trying to get a book deal. It's truly appalling."

We completely agree! They don't care about the story AT ALL!

As we said before when the jewelry story announced that they'd be putting the allegedly stolen necklace up for auction, they're press-hungry fiends.

We're glad that Sharlene Martin didn't give them a second thought. This situation does NOT need to be turned into a book.

A movie though…now THAT could be inneresting. Can we get the Ocean's Eleven crew on the phone? Ha!

Do U think it's wrong for the jeweler to try and get a book deal out of Lindsay's case? Would U read that book?

Lindsay's Necklace Most Likely Overpriced! She Could Avoid Felony Charges!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay-lohan-necklace-possibly-overpriced.jpg

Oh shiz! The girl just got lucky….again!

Lindsay Lohan could avoid felony charges because the alleged stolen necklace is possibly not worth as much as the jeweler claims!

According to several prominent jewelers, the necklace is question is said to be only worth anywhere between $800-$1,000!!

The necklace was sold for $2,500, which jewelers say was extremely overpriced. The good news (for Lindsay) is that if the item in question has a value of less than $950, then Lindsay could only be charged with petty theft, a misdemeanor with a maximum of 6 months in L.A. County Jail.

Lindsay could easily escape going to jail due to overcrowding.

Yet another lucky break for Lindsay!

What do U think?? Does she deserve to be put behind bars?

Jeweler Didn't Want To Press Charges Against Lindsay!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

jeweler-didnt-want-to-press-charges-in-lindsay-lohan-case.jpg

Well, it's too late for that now!

According to the police report, jewelry store owner Sofia Kaman says she didn't want to press charges against Lindsay Lohan.

Kaman said she "was hesitant in making the police report" and that she "only wanted her necklace returned." She also stated that "she wants this incident handled with the utmost discretion."

Even though Kaman apparently didn't want to make a big deal out of the whole thing, the D.A. had already decided that there was enough evidence to warrant a prosecution.

And we all know what happens when Lindsay is scheduled to appear in court. Can you say "media circus??"

Looks like Kaman got exactly the opposite of what she wanted.

Dina Says Lindsay Will Be Fine Because…

dina lohan says god has a plan for lindsay

Dina Lohan is confident that everything will work out for Lindsay because she feels that a higher power is at work.

Here's what she had to say about it:

"All good. God has a big plan."

Nice to hear that she's remaining positive for her daughter.

Lindsay's evaded prison many times before and NOW we've learned that there were inconsistencies in the jeweler's police report.

Maybe there IS a higher power looking after Lindz…a VERY understanding, patient one!

What do U think about Dina's words?

Lindsay May Not Be Lie-Telling! Some BIG Inconsistencies In Jeweler's Police Report!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

inconsistencies-in-jewelers-police-report-for-lindsay-felony-grand-theft-case

Uh-oh! Could it be a possibility that Lindsay Lohan is actually telling the TRUTH?!

According to the police report regarding the actress' recent felony theft charges, there are apparently two pretty big inconsistencies in the jeweler's story, which may be very beneficial in getting her off the hook!

The documents show that at first, the jeweler told authorities that Lindsay had been in the store three times before to look at the necklace in question. However, the next day, the jeweler CHANGED her tune, and claimed that it was actually a ring at which she had been looking.

Another noticeable inconsistency is that the store owner told authorities "The surveillance video revealed that as Kaman [owner] was talking to Lindsay's male friend, Lohan reached up to her neck area with both hands, removed the store necklace, and placed it inside her black Chanel bag."

However, the next day, the owner then claimed that she actually walked out of the store wearing the necklace!

WTF??

We're not going to lie, those are pretty big 'mistakes' to make - especially when the matter is serious enough to warrant a police report in the first place!

We hope that these guys have a decent explanation as to why they would confuse such big facts - or THEY could be the ones on trial - for filing a false police report!

Thoughts??
