Looks like Roy Williams was listening to a little too much Zhane. After falling for former 2009 Miss Texas USA Brooke Daniels, Williams decided to pop the question—through the mail.

According to reports, the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver sent a $76,000 diamond ring in the mail to his then-girlfriend. Yes, the mail!

The Odessa American reports:

“In an affidavit signed by Williams, he claims he sent $5,000 for school and dental bills, a baseball for Daniels’ brother and — as a surprise — a recorded marriage proposal with the ring through the mail just before Valentine’s Day to Daniels. However, when Daniels declined the proposal, she did not return the ring.”

He liked it, tried to put a ring on it, and she said, “No thanks!” Now Williams is suing to get the bling back.

The lawsuit, which also names Daniels’ father as a defendant, aims to recover the ring from his former flame. According to ESPN, under Texas law, “Engagement rings fall under the conditional-gift rule. The ring must be returned to the donor upon termination of the engagement, if the donee is at fault in terminating the engagement. If the donor is at fault, the ring doesn’t have to be returned.”

Daniels’ father, Michael, claims he has the ring and will be sending it back to Williams, even though, he says, Williams initially said his daughter could keep the ring.

“He said to [Brooke], ‘I’m not like a lot of people, I don’t want the ring back. You’ll eventually come back to me,’ and she didn’t,” Michael Daniels told the Odessa American.

Daniels added: “I want to wash my hands of it. It’s just a hassle. I’ll take care of my daughter. I don’t need him.”

What do you think…when a woman breaks an engagement, should she be able to keep the ring? Sound off!

    He’s an idiot. And she needs to give him the ring. I’d deliver it personally if it meant I wouldn’t have to deal with that jerk again.

    Propose by mail? Mail? Seriously?

    He is an idiot. You never ask a woman to marry you. Unless you know for sure that she is going to say yes. Then to do a half assed proposal? He should get the ring back.

    Okay 1st off how many of you would give back a 750,000 ring??

    Yes he should give the ring back its not like if somebody proposed, you say yes then ya break up later, you would keep the ring but if you say no then they get the ring back right then in there.

    However i wonder if people on her would still be saying yes he should get the ring back if the girl had been Black.

    Don’t he know that the people at the post office go through the mail? Why put something that valuable in the hands of strangers? He deserves to lose the ring.
