With Kim Kardashian closing in on the one-year anniversary of her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries (suggested gift: divorce papers), whispers continue to grow louder over her purported plans for another trip down the aisle.
The latest comes from Radar Online, which claims Kanye West has commissioned a jeweler to make Kim a "one of a kind" engagement ring using gems from baubles once owned by his late mother, Donda.
"Kanye picked out some of Donda's most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring," shares a source. "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."
How gallant. Anyhoodie, Yeezy's pals feel this is a "terrible idea" because they fear Kim, who went public with the rap titan in April, wouldn't return the sentimental sparkler if/when they split.
But that supposedly hasn't deterred him from narrowing down the choices for a wedding venue.
"Kanye's an emotional character and has earmarked Chicago or Oklahoma as the two places he'd love to wed Kim," says the loquacious spy. "Oklahoma is his personal choice because his mother's grave is there, and he wants her at his wedding in spirit. But he hasn't ruled out Chicago, which he credits for giving him inspiration for building his glittering career."
