We don’t know whether to feel bad for Roy Williams or laugh at him.
The Odessa American reports Williams filed a lawsuit seeking the return of the $76,600 ring from Brooke Daniels, a former Miss Texas USA.
Williams initially mailed the ring — you read that correctly — and a recorded marriage proposal to Daniels in February. Evidently that did not set off wedding bells in her head even though the couple had lived together for a year.
Daniels allegedly told Williams she’d lost the ring after he requested it back. Williams’ insurance company later told him Daniels’ father, Michael, was in possession of it.
“He said (to Brooke Daniels), ‘I’m not like a lot of people, I don’t want the ring back. You’ll eventually come back to me,’ and she didn’t,” says Michael Daniels, who plans to give the ring back to Williams rather than endure the lawsuit.
“I want to wash my hands of it,” said Michael Daniels, who added neither he nor his daughter claimed the ring was lost prior to the insurance inquiry. “It’s just a hassle. I’ll take care of my daughter. I don’t need him.”
Oh, damn. Okay, we feel a little bad for him now… especially since he’s getting his ring back and just got sonned by his ex’s daddy in the media. Poor thang.
