Mario Williams sues ex-fiancee to get $785K ring back

May 6, 2013 (HOUSTON)

In the lawsuit filed Friday, former Houston Texan Mario Williams is demanding that his former fiancee give back a nearly $800,000 diamond engagement ring. Court papers say she refuses, so Williams is planning on taking her to court

Court records say Williams -- the former Texans defensive end who now plays for the Buffalo Bills -- gave Erin Marzouki a $785,000, 10-carat diamond engagement ring in February 2012. Williams claims his former fiancee terminated the engagement earlier this year.

Court records say the "defendant never intended to marry plaintiff and used the relationship as a means to get to plaintiff's money and acquire gifts."

Williams also alleges he purchased more than $230,000 in luxury items for his former fiancee and also gave her a credit card where he claims she charged more than $108,000 in less than a year.

Under a rule that is recognized by Texas courts, Williams may be entitled to get the ring back because it was given as a gift with the intention of getting married, and Marzouki reportedly ended the engagement.
