Break-ups are awkard in the best of circumstances … now imagine there’s a $2 million diamond ring in the mix. That’s what’s happening in the Paris Hilton/Chris Zylka split, amid reports that she dumped him, but is hanging on to the mesmerizingly large (20 carats!) pear-shaped sparkler he proposed with.
According to TMZ, Hilton is hanging on the ring, but that Zylka plans a "hard ask I Paris doesn’t" cough up the goods soon. Hilton hasn’t been the most devoted of caretakers of the gem thus far, managing to lose it at a Miami rave in March, just four months after receiving it.
It was "just so heavy and big," it "literally flew" off her finger and into an ice bucket, she breathlessly explained on Twitter.
Hilton, who hasn’t publicly commented on her breakup, alluded to it in an Instagram post. She dressed up as Marilyn Monroe, and shared a favorite quote from the siren as her caption: I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together."
