Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams filed a law suit against his ex-girlfriend former 2009 Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels for keeping a $76,000 engagement ring after she declined his proposal... his mailed proposal.
Williams mailed Daniel's ring in a sort of care package complete with $5,000 for school and dental bills, a baseball for Daniels' brother and a surprise recorded marriage proposal with the ring, according to his affidavit. But she declined and her father has held on to the ring.
William's mailed proposal is bad enough but the fact that she passed the ring to her father shows these two are peas in a pod. Her father Michael Daniels claims Williams "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." But she didn't.
The two lived together for about a year and in that year they were said to argue a lot, reports the Odessa American. So maybe the beauty queen had valid reasons for declining his offer. Still, give the ring back.
An injunction for this case was scheduled for Friday and engagement rings fall under the conditional gift rule. In Texas courts the conditional-gift rule requires that the engagement ring be returned to the donor upon termination of the engagement, if the donee is at fault in terminating the engagement. But if the donor is at fault, the ring doesn't have to be returned.
Brooke Daniel's mom said the ring was returned to William's attorney yesterday, according to TMZ. Guilt or legal action might have pushed the ex in the right direction but either way Williams is $76,000 richer again.
