Former NFL star Laveranues Coles has declared war on his ex-fiancee,
demanding she return the $240,000 engagement he got her … because they
broke up, TMZ reports. Find their report below…
Coles, who played for the Jets, Redskins
and Bengals — was engaged to Kenda Fairchild … and proposed by back in
February with a 5.6 karat diamond ring valued at $240k.
But according to the Washington Post, the couple split just a few months later when she ditched Coles for another dude.
apparently, Fairchild kept the ring after they break up … and now
Coles is suing in Virginia to get it back. Coles argues that the ring
is a “conditional” gift which only becomes hers if she walks down the
Fairchild believes the ring became her property the minute he handed it over — and says the conditional argument is B.S.
Here’s the rub … there have been
conflicting rulings on similar cases in Virginia courts in the past
–and Coles’ case could become the one that sets the precedent for all
engagement ring disputes moving forward.
The case is moving forward to trial. Stay tuned. We reached out to Coles to comment — so far, no word back.
