The heiress, 37, said yesterday, Dec. 19, on the Jenny McCarthy Sirius XM radio show that the ring was a gift from a jeweler, as reported in Page Six. She claimed, “The person who we got it from got millions and millions of dollars of free publicity.”


“I love how social media has basically become a new form of money. It’s pretty sick,” she said.

The 20-carat pear-shaped diamond sparkler is worth $2 million and was a gift from celebrity jeweler Michael Greene.

When McCarthy asked if she was keeping the ring, Hilton said, “Yes. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”

Zylka, a 33-year-old actor and model, reportedly wants the ring back and even may have the law on his side, as per TMZ in November. He allegedly bought the ring at a discount because of Hilton’s close relationship to Greene.

Under the California law, gifts made with the expectation of marriage should be returned. If reports are true that Hilton broke off the engagement, the ring should go back to Zylka. When news of their breakup broke in November, he had yet to approach Hilton about the ring, reported TMZ.

Zylka proposed to her in January 2018 atop the Aspen slopes in Colorado.  Niña V. Guno /ra
