Kelly Clarkson Wins Jane Austen's Ring, Can't Take It Out of England
Kelly Clarkson is a girl after our own heart.
The singer ponied up £152,000 (that's over $243,000, folks) for a ring once worn by the British writer Jane Austen at auction.
She also won a first edition of the 1817 book, "Persuasion," but Clarkson is forbidden to leave the country, where she's on tour, with the ring.
"We put in an export request but I can't take it out of the UK as they've named it a national treasure," she tells the Daily Star.
Bummer, but she does have a nice consolation.
Do you need a roadie, Kelly?
