Kim and Kris Humphries were given the sports car as a wedding gift in 2011, and fought over it in divorce court a few months later. At that time, a source told RadarOnline: “Kris was at Kim’s house when the very gift was delivered — it was given to both of them but Kim has kept sole ownership of the gift and has used it extensively.”
Despite the fact that she was spotted in Miami last month arriving at dinner in a white Ferrari — which she switched out for a lime-green Lamborghini for the ride home, in order to, natch, match her hair color for the night — Kardashian’s publicist and her divorce lawyer wouldn’t say whether she is still driving the car.
The generous unnamed wedding guest was only described as “a Malaysian businessman” at the time.
But sources tell me their benefactor was Jho Low — the subject of the new book “Billion Dollar Whale,” about the spectacular alleged theft of up to $5 billion from the Malaysian government. Low is thought to be hiding out somewhere in China.
The Department of Justice has gone after other celebrities who received gifts from the star-struck Low. Leo DiCaprio turned over Picasso and Basquiat paintings. Miranda Kerr parted with $8 million in diamond jewelry. But there are many other celebs, including Swizz Beatz, Pras Michél and Nicole Scherzinger, who received less valuable gifts.
Low was known to take his guests to casinos and hand them chips, “Whale” co-author Bradley Hope told me.
