Kris Humphries is totally not down with Kim Kardashian’s recent donation to charity. Find out why he’s upset with his ex-wife — and why he doesn’t agree with her decision to donate their wedding gifts.
Kim Kardashian thought she was doing a good thing by donating cash to charity in honor of her wedding guests. However, one person is more than a little upset with the development: Her ex-husband, Kris Humphries.
The New Jersey Nets baller thinks that “people should receive in return what they purchased with their hard-earned money,” a source told Gossip Cop.
Kardashian sent a note to her wedding guests notifying them that she cut a check to charity in lieu of returning the gifts.
“I would like to thank you for your generous and thoughtful wedding gift,” she wrote in a thank you note. “It has taken me some time to pull everything together but I wanted to let you know that the money for every gift received by me at my wedding has been donated to the Dream Foundation.”
However, Humphries might not be upset over his ex-wife’s donation. Instead, it sounds like he’s outraged because he never got his hands on the wedding swag.
“Kris has never seen any of his gifts,” a source told HollywoodLife.com last month. “He doesn’t have a list of any of the gifts. He feels the gifts are communal property in the marriage and therefore, they should have been at least divided 50/50.”
So, who is in the right here? Neither of them. Wedding etiquette dictates that couples should return any gifts given to them if they split soon after their wedding.
“The rule of thumb is if the marriage ends after just six months, you should return the unused gifts,” Lizzie Post, author of Emily Post’s Etiquette 18th Edition, told the New York Daily News. “After just 72 days, the gifts must be returned to the wedding guest.”
