KUALA LUMPUR, May 7 — An unknown Malaysian businessman’s US$325,000 (RM993,525) white Ferrari wedding gift to Kim Kardashian and her husband Kris Humphries has become the centre of attention as the couple’s 72-day marriage head towards the divorce courts.
Kardashian’s 27-year-old basketball player husband wants to know what happened to the sports car gift from an unnamed wealthy Malaysian businessman reported to have attended their wedding last summer and why the reality star left it out of a charity donation list for the amount of their wedding presents, Britain’s Daily Mail reported today.
The buzz over the lavish gift has been spreading over the Internet since late April when the 31-year-old American celebrity socialite hit the headlines for donating twice the value of her wedding gifts to the Dream Foundation instead of returning the presents.
Humpries’ lawyers were reportedly planning on asking Kardashian — now said to be dating artiste Kanye West — about the gift at their divorce trial, and sources claimed that there will absolutely be a trial, despite Kardashian trying desperately to avoid it.
“Kris’ attorneys also plan on calling the Malaysian gift giver as a witness because Kim has denied that they received the US$325k gift and said instead that he gave them a vase valued at around US$200.
“The man is a billionaire, there is no way he would have given them a vase and Kris has proof that the businessman gave them the over the top gift,” gossip website, RadarOnline quoted a source close to the former couple as saying in its April 27 report.
