London: Kim Kardashian splashed out a colossal 65,000 dollars during an auction to secure three diamond and jade bracelets owned by her “idol” Elizabeth Taylor.

According to TMZ, the 31-year-old reality star, who out the large amount to get the three diamond and jade bracelets that Taylor owned, is said to have been involved in a bidding war with several other jewellery fanatics, the Daily Mail reported.

Kardashian had confessed to her viewers on her reality show just how much she adores the late actress and would undoubtedly be ecstatic to own the three Lorranise Schwatz bangle bracelets which she paid 64,900 dollars for.

The late actress’s astonishing jewellery collection fetched a record-breaking 115 million dollars (75million pounds) at auction in New York, including more than 11.8 million dollars for a pearl necklace and 8.8million dollars for a diamond ring, both given to her by Richard Burton.

Other sales of ‘Lassie Come Home’ star’s art, clothing and memorabilia will be held later in the week.
