Kourtney Kardashian has revealed that she broke her engagement ring

Kourtney Kardashian has opened up about the awful experience of breaking the engagement ring that her partner Travis Barker gave to her. We’re flinching just thinking about it.

In a new episode of the reality TV family’s new show The Kardashians, she tells mum Kris Jenner the story.  

“I had to get something up above in my closet, and when I stepped down, I stepped on the ring,” she said. “I was hysterically crying in my closet for hours, and then I called Travis. I was like, ‘I did something really, really bad.’”

She immediately after gushed about Barker – who is the drummer for Blink 182 – and his kind reaction to such an upsetting event.  “He handled it the best,” she said.

Kourtney added that the accident gave her a “nervous breakdown”. She said: “I was just like, this is the most beautiful thing that I’ve ever had in my life, and how could I have done that?”

The ring is known as a thing of beauty, and was designed by Lorraine Schwartz, a favourite jeweller for the Hollywood crowd, including other members of the Kardashian family. Barker apparently was very “hands on” with the crafting of the piece.

“Travis picked it out, he designed it, he looked at so many stones and this was me in a stone and I thought that was really special,” Kourtney Kardashian added in the episode.

It looks like the repairs were made successfully, though, as she was seen wearing it on the red carpet of the Met Gala, as well as at the Oscars and Grammys

The couple seem to be going strong, with rumours on a recent The Kardashians trailer running rampant that they could be trying for a baby.

In it, they’re asked by a doctor for a sample to be put in a cup, and Kourtney suggests taking their mics off, presumably for privacy. We’ve got our fingers crossed for them and any future family they’re planning.

The Kardashians is available to watch on Disney+.
