If You Like Her Then You Shouldn't Mail a Ring to Her...
Rich people are friggin' crazy. Athletes even more so.
Take Dallas Cowboys' Roy Williams, for example. He's headed to court to try and get back the $76,000 engagement ring he bought his girlfriend, former Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels. The couple dated for about a year before he proposeduniquely.
According to the Odessa American, Williams claims he sent $5,000 for school and dental bills, a baseball for Daniels’ brother and — as a surprise — a recorded marriage proposal with the ring through the mail just before Valentine’s Day to Daniels. However, when Daniels declined the proposal, she did not return the ring.
In a signed affidavit, Williams said asked for the ring to be returned until Daniels claimed six weeks later that she had lost it, at which point he reported it lost to his insurance agency. The insurance investigation revealed that Daniels’ father, Michael Daniels, had the ring. He is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
Michael Daniels said in a phone interview Tuesday that although he has documentation that Williams initially told his daughter to keep the ring, he will return it to avoid a lawsuit. Daniels didn’t specify when or how the ring would be returned.
Wow, I can't believe Brooke Daniels turned Roy Williams down. I mean, who could resist a recorded proposal sent through the mail with money for your family?
Did she turn down his proposal via Twitter or Facebook?
