Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams is suing his ex-fiancee to return a diamond engagement ring worth nearly $800,000.
Williams alleges in court documents filed in a Harris County, Tex., district court that Erin Marzouki ended the engagement in January and didn't return the ring. He alleges that Marzouki never intended to marry him and was just trying to get at his money. Marzouki has filed a counter-claim.
"This is a stupid lawsuit because it has no legal merit, and it's a stupid lawsuit because it's not going to be good for his career," Marzouki's attorney, Anthony Buzbee, told the Houston Chronicle. "(Williams) is a victim of his emotions and of bad legal advice. What he's done is kick an anthill, and you know what happens when you kick an anthill."
The ring Williams wants back features a 10.04-carat diamond and is worth $785,000.
