Dallas wide receiver Roy Williams is suing a former Miss Texas for the return of an expensive engagement ring that he sent her through the mail in February.
According to the Long Island Press, Williams shipped the $76,000 rock to Miss Texas 2009 Brooke Daniels, along with a recorded audio message and some cash. Daniels was Williams’ girlfriend at the time.
The audio message reportedly contained a proposal for marriage. Daniels politely declined, and Williams filed the lawsuit in June saying Daniels failed to return his ring.
According to Daniels’ father, Michael Daniels of Tomball, Texas, Williams told her she could keep the ring.
In court documents, Williams said he repeatedly asked Daniels to return the ring but Daniels told him that she lost it.
In an affidavit signed by Williams on June 30, he said he also gave Daniels $5,000 cash for school and to help with some dentist bills.
Daniels’ father said his daughter would give the ring back to avoid the legal hassle.
