Karen Hauer returns sentimental engagement ring after father-in-law’s claims

Strictly Come Dancing professional Karen Hauer is said to have given back the engagement ring her ex Jordan Wyn-Jones’ dad claimed was taken from him without permission.

Karen, 41, and Jordan, 34, recently split after tying the knot in June last year.

Jordan said the £60 gold ring he proposed to the dancer with was left to him by his late mum Anne, although his dad Lee Williams alleged the heirloom was not his to give away.

In an update, Karen is said to have returned the ring to her ex as she focuses on moving on.

Jordan recently claimed to the Mail Online: “It was my mum’s ring she left it to me when she passed away.

“I knew I wanted to give her my mum’s ring the second I met her.”

He went on to say he knew Karen would send back the sentimental item as “it’s not in her DNA to cause hurt”.

Jordan’s dad alleged to The Sun: “That’s it then — if she’s sent the ring back to him instead of me I’ll never see it again. I totally see where Karen is coming from.

“She was gifted the ring and it was hers as far as she knows.

“I’m grateful she has returned it to Jordan, but it actually belongs to me — and it was taken from me without my permission.”

Lee, who did not attend their wedding last year, went on to claim Karen is the third woman his son has proposed to with the ring.

The Strictly dancer previously gushed about the ring they had remodelled after announcing her engagement news.

“Jordan proposed with his late mother’s ring,” she revealed in a photoshoot with Hello! Magazine flashing the band.

“I know it meant the world to him for me to have it. We’ve since remodelled it together, so that it has the core of his mother’s ring, but also our flair added to it.”

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Karen for comment.

The Strictly dancer is yet to address her split from Jordan publicly, but has since removed his surname from her Instagram bio.

Earlier this month, he confirmed they had split and claimed Karen’s commitment to her dancing career played a central part in their break-up.

He shared: “I’m incredibly sad not to be in Karen’s life, and not be on this journey with her but we’re not right for each other in terms of her career.

“I will always admire her for her career but it took her away from me a lot. She’d be away and I’d be at home on my own.”

He went on to say he wanted to have children and was unsure if she did.

Karen was previously married to ex Strictly pro Kevin Clifton from 2015 to 2018. Following their split, he struck up a romance with Stacey Dooley, who he won the show with in the same year.
