For reasons that defy comprehension, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries remain married.
Lawyers for both halves of this estranged couple met in court yesterday, with Kim's representative complaining that her client is "handcuffed" to Humphries - and not in the usual Kim Kardashian way!
So... what the heck is the hold-up here?
"Kris is adamant that he wants the [engagement] ring back," a source tells Radar Online. "And it's becoming a real sticking point between his and Kim's attorneys...
"Kris contends that the marriage was a total sham and that Kim only wed him for publicity so therefore she has no right to keep such an expensive gift."
The gift in question cost around $2 million and is 20.5 carats in size.
Why would Kim even want to keep it, Humphries allegedly wonders.
Why would Kris care, we can shoot back. The guy makes millions of dollars a year playing basketball for a living... when he isn't getting ejected from games, that is.
It's just another wrinkle in the Kim Kardashian divorce case that will last until February 15th at the earliest. That's when a judge has set the next hearing.
Who do you think takes most of the blame for this mess?
