There's a battle brewing between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries over her massive engagement ring.

In the latest bout of messy-divorce news, Humphries reportedly wants back the whopping 20.5-carat diamond engagement ring he gave the reality star when he popped the question - but apparently, she's refusing to return it to him, according to

"Kris is adamant that he wants the ring back," a source told "And it's becoming a real sticking point between his and Kim's attorneys."

The twosome split last October after just 72 days of marriage, and while Kardashian, 32, reportedly thinks she has a legal right to keep the ring, the Nets baller, 27, counters "that the marriage was a total sham, and that Kim only wed him for publicity so therefore she has no right to keep such an expensive gift." The couple walked down the aisle in front of cameras, and millions of fans saw their nups on TV.

The ring, by designer Lorraine Schwartz is reportedly worth $2 million, and Humphries paid a discounted price of $750,000 for it, Radar reported.

"Kris doesn't understand why Kim would even want to keep the ring anyway. It obviously has no sentimental value as she has publicly declared their wedding as 'a huge mistake' and she certainly doesn't need the money, so why doesn't she just return it to him?" the source said.

Kardashian is now dating rapper Kanye West. Kardashian's and Humphries' lawyers were in court this week.
