Selita Ebanks Is Team Kardashian

Nick Cannon's former fiance says "Hell no!" to Kim returning the ring.

Selita Ebanks knows love doesn't always last forever, and the model--who was once engaged to Nick Cannon--has some supportive words for Kim Kardashian.


“At first I just thought ‘Okay, it’s really sad,’ but then you think it’s for TV,” Ebanks told OK! Magazine. “But then you have to put on her shoes and understand that it’s hard to live your life in that light, so whatever it was and whatever it is, I still feel bad for her. She can’t even have a moment to fully cry. At the end of the day, we’re all women, and it’s a hard thing, especially when it’s happening in front of the world.”   


Ebanks is especially sympathetic when it comes to the ring. “Hell no!” she exclaimed when asked if Kardashian should return the 20.5 carat diamond rock. “I thought she bought it herself. That’s a big ring! I don’t know if Kris Humphries’ contract fits the price.”


Ultimately, the Victoria's Secret Angel--whose engagement to Cannon ended just months before he married Mariah Carey--knows better than most that a whirlwind romance in the spotlight is a risky proposition. 


“It was hard,” she says. “Having a public breakup is hard because people speculate and they assume and they think that they know what it is. Granted, most of her life is reality TV, so that makes it even harder, but for me, it was a very sad time just because I was so young and vulnerable and naïve.”
