Kelly Clarkson Can’t Keep Her Jane Austen Ring
If you’ve not been following the #drama, here’s a recap: Kelly Clarkson bought a gold and turquoise ring that once belonged to Austen at auction last year for $236,000.

After that, an export ban was placed on the ring while the Jane Austen’s House Museum tried to raise funds in order to buy back the ring from Clarkson.
The museum has announced it raised enough money in order to buy the ring for itself, leaving Clarkson empty handed.
In the meantime, Clarkson seems to have set her sights on a different Austin enitrely:
Also, Austin TX, you guys were awesome tonight! Thanks for coming out :)
