Kris Jenner Says Kim Spent ‘Great Deal of Money’ for Wedding; Ring Wasn’t $2 Million


By Michael Lewittes



On the heels of Kim Kardashian denying her wedding was made for TV cameras and that she only “married for love,” her mom Kris Jenner went on to the “Today” show and clarified a few misconceptions.

Jenner said Kardashian did not make money on the wedding, and that the much-discussed $2 million ring wasn’t worth nearly anything like that. Kardashian’s mom said on the morning show the wedding “certainly wasn’t a sham. Certainly wasn’t something for TV. We have enough going on on our show that we don’t have to make things up.”

She added her daughter “really felt like she was in love with [Kris Humphries].” According to Jenner, she had “no idea there was a problem at the time. It saddens all of us.”

As for the family profiting off the televised two-part wedding special, Jenner said it was “absolutely false,” though acknowledged that Kardashian made some money selling personal photos to E! to be used on-air. “At the end of the day, Kim had to pay a great deal of money [for] the balance that was owed for the wedding which she was delighted to do because that was her fairy tale,” said Jenner.

The famous family’s momager also cleared up that “it wasn’t a $2 million ring… It was less than half of that.” Jenner noted that Kardashian, who is now in Australia, is “sick about [announcing her divorce]. She had to come out and say look, ‘I made a mistake and I feel terrible.'”
