I was so almost on board with this whole Kim Kardashian and Kanye West thing, particularly after she glowed while speaking about him to Oprah. But now this rumor has turned my feelings into abhorrence for this ungodly match. And to top it all off, Kanye apparently wants to use parts of his late mother’s jewelry collection to make Kim’s ring. I can’t.
Kanye West has asked a private jeweler to make an engagement ring for Kim Kardashian by using diamonds and rubies from his late mom Donda’s personal jewelry collection, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The Gold Digger rapper is then planning to propose to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star once her divorce from Kris Humphries is finalized.
“Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring,” a source close to Kanye tells Radar.
“He then gave them to a private jeweler friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
“Donda was such an important person in Kanye’s life, he thought the world of her and was devastated when she died. So, he kept all her jewelry as keepsakes – a lot of the pieces were items he bought over the years after he made it as a hip-hop star.
“And now, Kanye has found a woman he respects and loves just as much as his mom, so he wants to share her jewelry collection with Kim.
“He’s hoping to propose to Kim with the ring when she finally gets divorced,” the source reveals.
However, Kanye’s sentimental gesture has been met with skepticism by his closest pals. They say he’s wrong to part with Donda’s prized possessions and have warned him if he ever breaks up with Kim she will keep the ring!
“His friends think it’s a terrible idea and are advising him not to give Kim the ring,” the source says. “Because it’s a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up.
Well, not only am I upset, but I’m so about to denounce Kanye as my cousin in my head. And he’s only been in that position since the BET Awards. Or maybe I should just try being happy for them. What say you?
