Kris Humphries nearly lost his wedding ring, just one and a half months after tying the knot with Kim Kardashian. The $10,000 jewelry went missing at St. Paul Airport in Minneapolis on last Friday, October 7 when the NBA player removed the Lorraine Schwartz-designed band while going through airport security.
One traveler Omar Ahmad, who recognized Kris, said that the 26-year-old professional basketball player "must have had to take off all his jewelry or it slipped off his finger because he was freaking out and frantically looking for it yelling 'where's my ring?!' " The eyewitness went on recalling, "He was crawling on his knees looking for it underneath the x-ray machine."
Omar then stepped in to help Kim's hubby while Kris' two friends reportedly "just stood there, with looks on their faces like, 'oh s**t! He lost his ring!' " After around 10 minutes searching for the ring, the fellow traveler found the expensive jewelry in the corner and security grabbed it.
"Kris was just so thankful I helped him and and didn't just leave him," Omar went on saying. As a gratitude, the New Jersey Nets star took a pose with the man who had acted like a good Samaritan.
Almost at the same time the wedding ring drama hit the web, the second part of "Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event" was aired on E! on Monday, October 10. A continuation to the first part which was broadcast on Sunday, the two-hour special presents more footage from Kim and Kris' wedding preparation until they said "I do".
The couple is additionally featured in a newly released promo for "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" season 2. Making its way out via Ryan Seacrest's official blog, the clip highlights the high-class lifestyle of the 30-year-old socialite and her sister Kourtney Kardashian as they hop out of a helicopter before being picked up by Kris and Scott Disick respectively.
