Ex-fiancee countersues former Texans star over engagement ring

HOUSTON

We heard the 'he said' and now we're hearing the 'she said in this case of the $785,000 engagement ring. "Ridiculous," "silly," and "patently false" is how Erin Marzouki's attorney describes Mario William's lawsuit.

Last week, Williams filed suit to get the 10 carat ring back from his ex-fiancée, saying she broke off the engagement. In the counterclaim, Erin Marzouki's attorney says Willaims broke off the engagement multiple times.

Marzouki's attorney Anthony Buzbee said, "They were engaged for 10 months. He broke up with her five times. Like I say, he's on an emotional roller coaster. I have thousands of his texts he sent her that I've collected."

Buzbee says in those texts, Williams tells Marzouki he is breaking up with her, and she should keep the ring. Her attorney says she has no plans to sell the ring. It's in a safe deposit box right now.

There's a hearing in civil court scheduled for Friday.
