The Kochs brothers are the faces of the oil industry in the US and the biggest backers of the Republican party, so any bad press stories aren't something they want. A week ago, they bought the media group controlling Time Magazine to change this. For the time being though, they still have to accept press like the following.
Mr. Wyatt Koch, the son of billionaire Bill Koch, is suing his ex-fiancée, Miss Ivie Gabrielle Slocumb, to get back the $250,000 engagement ring he gave her after she broke off the relationship.
31-year-old Wyatt is demanding via a lawsuit that 29-year-old Ivie Gabrielle returns the 8.24-carat diamond ring after she called off their engagement in May of this year and left him heartbroken.
According to the lawsuit Mr. Koch’s attorney posted, he bought the ring for $180,000 in March of this year, gave it to her and she broke off the relationship two months later. The wording states: “She refuses to return it, despite proper demand and the condition not being fulfilled.”
The lawsuit, furthermore, states that he gave her a $7,750 “platinum diamond pendant with 56 round diamonds”.

Wyat Koch carries his own brand of shirts with crazy patterns and colors. In an Instagram video posted earlier this year, he stated: “My father said to me, ‘Wyatt, you can do whatever you want to in life. Just make sure you do it well and do it with passion.’ ”
“Everyday I go to the office, I enjoy creating the clothes. ‘Be bold’ means to me — be authentic, be real, be yourself, be confident and always be a gentleman — but still, have that tenacity that no one can take away from you. I want my shirts to be able to wear in the boardroom or in the Discoteca or a nightclub, or on a yacht. I really wanted to create something that’s fun, outside the box, cool, trendy, yet really bold and interesting.”
