Kim Kardashian and NBA Baller Kris Humphries tied the knot in August 2011, 90 days after the NBA pro popped the question with a custom-designed, 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring. The twosome infamously split after just two months of marriage that October.
Before the split, she had run into Kanye, and felt bad, so she hid her ring while talking to her future husband.
“I f—ked up and went a different direction and realized that I f—ked up pretty soon,” the 37-year-old reality star began during a Thursday, August 9, appearance on the radio show Big Boy’s Neighborhood, referring to her short-lived marriage to Humphries. “And then what was crazy was — I’ve never told this story before. So I’m presenting an award … and Kanye was nominated, so I see him backstage. We end up both at the SoHo House and he sat at my table.”
“I had my big ring on because I was married, so I’m, like, talking with my ring and I talk with my hands a lot, so I’m talking and I just see him looking at my ring and his face would just, like, get heartbroken,” Kardashian continued. “So I sat on my hand for the rest of the dinner and spoke like this with one hand.”
Kardashian told Big Boy that she quickly “caught on” to West’s heartbroken face during the aforementioned dinner at SoHo house.
“You know we look back now and I guess him and his best friend had a convo and was, like, ‘Dude, we’re at a restaurant together and she just got married two weeks ago,’” she explained. “Nothing went down, nothing happened, but then I went to New York and started filming and I was like, ’You’re right, I’m miserable, I made the wrong decision.’”
This is riveting stuff. Humphries walked away just fine. He has made a lot of money being an average player at best, and got to be super famous for a brief amount of time. Win win.
