Bitter Or Broke: Cowboys WR Roy Williams Sues Ex Over $76,000 Engagement Ring
This NFL lockout is sure putting a hurting on these players’ pockets.
Dallas Cowboys WR Roy Williams is reportedly suing his ex-girlfriend, 2009 Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels, for a $76,000 engagement ring he mailed to her after she declined his wedding proposal. She allegedly refused to return the ring and Williams filed a claim with his insurance company when Daniels claimed the ring was lost. However, the insurance company found that the ring was not lost and now it is a matter of whether or not the ring was a gift.
Well, of course it was a gift. But the question is whether the gift was contingent on whether or not Williams’s offer was accepted by Daniels.
Either way, it’s kind of foolish and a bit impersonal to send something of that magnitude through the mail. Wouldn’t it have been easier to do it in person? This way, if she declined, you would still have the ring in your possession and not have to worry about this charade. It also makes you wonder how Williams is dealing with all of this. Is he a bitter ex-boyfriend who wants his gift back because his heart is broken or is he not as well off as other pros and needs to get the money back for his ring. It’s not like he can keep the ring and wear it around the house.
I don’t understand why he proposed in the manner in which he did after only being with her for a year. Twelve months is not a long time and definitely not long enough where he should feel comfortable proposing through the mail. It’s foolish on all accounts.
But in all actuality, Ms. Daniels should go ahead and give Williams back the ring. She’s not going to marry him so why keep it? It’s not like she did anything to deserve a $76K ring.
Fortunately, Daniels’s father has agreed to return the ring to avoid further legal issues and a messy situation that would get a bunch of attention for no reason.
