According to the latest gossip, rapper Kanye West is planning on proposing to his reality star girlfriend Kim Kardashian — right after her divorce from Kris Humphries is finalized.
Reportedly, Kanye has asked a private jeweler to make an engagement ring for Kim using diamonds and rubies from his mother’s personal collection. Once things are over and done with in her divorce from Kris, Kanye plans on popping the question.
A source said, “Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring. 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.”
The source went on to say, “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.”
His pals don’t actually like the idea of Kanye parting with some of his late mother’s jewelry. The source said, “His friends think it’s a terrible idea and are advising him not to give Kim the ring. Because it’s a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up. They’ve also reminded him that Kim is not somebody who works hard for her money. She makes millions doing reality shows and selling her image, and Donda’s jewelry shouldn’t be part of that image.”
What do you think? Should he part ways with his late mother’s jewelry in order to let a former sex tape star know that he’s in it for the long haul?
