The man - soldier Kyle Upham who had just returned from duty in Iraq - was checking out the cheaper items, though his wife spotted something she "really, really liked." It was a $9,000 engagement ring. Upham said "Honey, I can't afford that," King recalled.

The Porsche Carrera GT, the car in which Paul Walker died in, has a history of lawsuits.
The Porsche Carrera GT, the same vehicle in which Paul Walker was travelling when he was killed on Saturday (November 30, 2013), has a history of being difficult to control. The sports car is capable of reaching 100mph in under seven seconds but is built without the stability management system that most Porsche models are equipped with, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Paul Walker's daughter Meadow Walker has paid tribute to her father.
Meadow Walker, Paul Walker's daughter, has posted a heartbreaking tribute to her movie star father, who died in a car crash on Saturday (November 30, 2013). Clearly devastated by her father's death, Meadow Walker still found the strength to post a lengthy tribute to her Dad - known to be one of the most likeable stars in Hollywood.
Paul Walker's had one child, a daughter, Meadow Walker.
"When I was little he taught me to walk, taught me to smile, and taught me to never give up. I love him even before I knew what love was. He was my hero. My REAL life hero! He will always be in my heart! It brings tears in my eyes as I write this. You're gone, but not forgotten! R.I.P Dad!" she said, according to Christian Today.

Among a flood of tributes to Paul Walker, friend and colleague Vin Diesel finally spoke out.
Four days after Paul Walker’s tragic death, his on and off-screen friend Vin Diesel has issued a statement in mourning. The actor wrote on his Facebook page: “Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on Us… on me.”
Walker [l] and Diesel [r] have been close friends since filming the original 2001 Fast & Furious movie.
Following some comments, which popped up on instagram and twitter under Diesel’s name, but later turned out to have been posted by fake accounts, the actor shared some touching sentiments in his first real statement. His post begins with a quote by Thomas Campbell: “To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.” Diesel then goes on to express his grief in a statement, which has so far gathered thousands of likes and over 36,000 sympathetic comments, all lamenting the actor’s sudden death.
Michell Rodriguez and Luke Evans are Paul Walker's latest co-stars to express their devastation on his sudden death this past Saturday (Nov 30th).
Michelle Rodriquez, who co-starred with Paul in 'The Fast and the Furious' franchise, has finally broke her silence on his tragic death.
The 35 year-old, like many others, took to twitter to express her sentiments following Walker's fatal car crash in Santa Clarita, while attending a charity event for his organization 'Reach Out Worldwide'.
Paul Walker's girlfriend, Jasmine, has received a lot of media attention over the past few days, but has herself chosen to retreat to a familiar environment.
Paul Walker’s girlfriend Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell is reportedly “broken up” over the sudden and tragic death of the actor. The 23-year-old woman had been dating Walker (40) for the past seven years. She has now turned to her mother, Julie, for support – as you do in difficult situations. Pilchard-Gosnell and the age difference between the two has attracted a lot of attention since Walker's passing, which might be why the young woman has decided to protect her privacy and retreat from media enquiries.
“Paul was a really good guy and Jasmine is broken up by this. I went to Thanksgiving with him, played golf with him, Jasmine’s uncle Barton Bruner reportedly said for the Daily Mail. ”They had their ups and downs but they were together and looking to spend a bright future together.”
Jasmine is a college student living in Santa Barbara, California. Prior to Walker’s death, the 23-year-old was reportedly starting to bond with the actor’s daughter Meadow who, at 15, is only eight years younger than her stepmother-to-be. Understandably, the teenager hasn’t been seen since Walker died in a car accident on Saturday. After Thanksgiving, which he spent with his daughter, the actor was scheduled to return to Atlanta and begin filming, Fast & Furious 7.
Paul Walker's ex-girlfriend and mother of his child Rebecca McBrain joins other in mourning the loss of the star.
The ex-girlfriend of the late Paul Walker, Rebecca McBrain has been consoling the pair's 15 year-old daughter Meadow Walker who is said to be "in pieces" over her father, who died in a car crash at the weekend.
Paul Walker, Star Of The 'Fast & Furious' Franchise, Has Died Aged 40.
McBrain and Walker are said to have split in 1999 "Rebecca is being there for her daughter, who is naturally devastated," a source said, via Showbiz Spy. "She and Paul had some good times together. She too is upset by his death." Though Meadow was brought up in Hawaii where she used to live with her mother, both moved to California recently so that Meadow could be closer to her father.
The release of Paul Walker's film is set to go ahead as planned.

Lin will sit behind the camera for the next 'Bourne' film, due in cinemas in summer 2015
Justin Lin has been signed on to direct the next instalment of the Bourne franchise, which will see Jeremy Renner return as the star of the show. Filming for the fifth Bourne film is due to begin next year, with the movie expected to arrive in cinemas in summer 2015.
Lin, who masterminded the Fast and Furious franchise - which has become one of the most successful film series in history - was announced as the director of the next Bourne film via Deadline, who also revealed that Renner will be returning as Aaron Cross. The 2015 release is being written by Invictus and Sherlock Holmes writer, Anthony Peckham.
The fifth Bourne film will be Lin's first project since stepping down as the head of the Fast and Furious franchise - which grossed over $1 billion from the last three films alone - in place of James Wan. Universal have enlisted the help of Lin to hopefully propel the Bourne series to similar heights enjoyed by F&F.
Nolan and Abigail are hoping to welcome their unborn baby daughter into the world in just a few weeks, but things take a terrifying turn when the child is born five weeks prematurely. Abigail is rushed to hospital just as New Orleans becomes embroiled in a menacing looking storm that gets gradually worse as the hours go by. As Hurricane Katrina causes the nearby levee to break, the streets are flooded and the entire hospital is forced to be evacuated. However, that means that some people cannot be moved from the building if their survival relies solely on non-portable machines and so Nolan insists on staying in the unit where his fragile baby daughter is hooked up to a ventilator. Soon, though, the emergency battery begins to die down and with no-one around to change it and a severe power cut underway, he is forced to find a generator and do everything within his power to save his child - even if that means risking his own life.

It's massive, utterly ridiculous and it works!
Throughout the surprisingly long life of Fast & Furious, we’ve come to think of the franchise as something of a joke. Macho men and beautiful women revving up engines and performing absurd stunts, with barely a thread of plot to hold the whole thing together. And yet, not only is Fast & Furious still around, but the sixth installment in the series is geared up to take the weekend box office charts by a landslide. The film grossed over $38 million domestically on Friday and is projected to cash in at $120 million by the end of the holiday weekend (according to USA Today) and it miraculously earned the approval of 75% of critics and 95% of fans on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Pardon us while we stop and wonder: how on earth did this happen?
Well, there’s obviously the very enticing presence of both Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel – both of whom look like your stereotypical tough guys, but turn out to be surprisingly relatable and have really good comedic pacing. Then there are of course the members of the supporting cast – Paul Walker, Ludacris, Tyrese Gibson and Jordana Brewster – who’s clever and well-timed quips make this highly watchable. Then there are, of course, the machines, the explosions, your typical action flick fodder, which this franchise takes very seriously. But all that just makes for an entertaining, easily forgettable movie, perhaps one sequel. What Fast did and what’s helped the franchise not only live on, but become bigger and better, with the sixth installment being the best yet, where normally a franchise would be on its last leg, was to stop taking itself seriously. Somewhere around Fast Five the producers realized the ridiculousness of the whole premise and, instead of trying to disguise it, decided to just go for the full monty (we presume that’s how it was mentioned in meetings.)
Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Ludacris and the Rock are all back for the sixth (but not last) installment of the franchise
Fast and Furious 6 gets it's U.S. release today and whilst many are scratching their heads at how the franchise ever managed to get to six films, critics and audiences alike are in agreement with each other that the big wigs behind the franchise have left the best film until last (Though there's probably going to be a seventh).
With original stars Vin Diesel and Paul Walker joined by the likes of franchise regulars DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON and Ludacris (as Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges), the latest release is still very much a Fast & Furious film, but don't let that put you off just yet. With all the usual motoring chaos and carnage to expect, only this time round with a little added spice, the film is everything you could from a F&F movie, with added va-va-voom.
Continue reading: Fast And Furious 6 Is Released Today, And It Might Be The Best One Yet!
Paul Walker remains behind the steering wheel, but this action thriller has a whiff of the arthouse about it, simply by being set in South Africa. The plot is as preposterous as Taken, which it resembles in many ways. But there is some guilty pleasure to be had in the way events unfurl for this particular American abroad. And the big climax is satisfyingly ridiculous.
It opens at the Johannesburg airport, where the recently paroled Michael (Walker) arrives on the way to visit his ex Angelica (Haidarian). But the rental agency gives him the wrong car, and when he gets stuck in a traffic jam he starts exploring it, discovering first a phone, then a gun and then a bound-and-gagged women behind the back seat. She turns out to be Rachel (McLean), a kidnapped lawyer caught between dirty cops and even dirtier politicians. And as everyone begins to chase Michael around the city, he gets deeper and deeper into the mess.
Michael is on edge from the beginning, exhausted after the gruelling flight and distracted by thoughts of Angelica. And we soon learn that he has broken parole to leave America, risking everything for this reunion with her. The script reveals its secrets along the way, although the main thing we realise is that writer-director Dewil is doing whatever he wants, sending Michael on a nightmarish odyssey that's more than a little contrived. And Walker is fine in the role of a rather uncomplicated guy who knows how to deal with these kinds of shady situations.

Michael Woods is eager to get his life back on track; leave behind his criminal past and reunite with his estranged girlfriend to patch up a tempestuous relationship. He breaks parole in order to go and see her but, due to a mix up with a car rental company, he is landed with a minivan rather than what he asked for: a rather more practical Sedan. However, he decides he'll go with it anyway unaware of the shock that would lie in store. When he discovers a phone with a new text message in the front of the vehicle, he is drawn to a silenced handgun obviously meant for someone else. Not only that, but when he pulls back the back seat, he finds a gagged and bound female hostage who informs him that was going to be killed for her inside knowledge of the corrupt local police. The pair embark on a perilous cat and mouse chase hotly pursued by the feds who he needs avoid anyway for his own reasons.

Stars convinced that this will be the biggest and best installment yet.
Fast and Furious co-stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster have been giving us the low down on the forthcoming new film and the sixth of the franchise, Fast And Furious 6.
Continue reading: Vin Diesel And Fast And Furious 6 Co-Stars Talk New Movie [Video]
Paul Walker and Jordana Brewster are interviewed in London about the latest addition to the 'Fast' franchise 'Fast & Furious 6'. They talk about their feelings on the numerous reprisals of the movie, the extravagant scale of the film and on and offscreen friendships.
On making a new sequel, Paul admits his first thoughts were, 'Really? It was a long time ago we made the first one, you really think they want us still doing this?' 'To me it's just mindblowing, and now all this talk about announcing another one before this one's even been released, that's bold as all hell', he continues. Jordana comments on just how big they've made the movie this time. 'There's a tank that literally flies out of a truck that then pummels over cars', she says. 'Someone just thought up what could be the most fun thing to shoot and then made it happen which is pretty crazy.' Paul says he has a 'healthy' competitive relationship with co-star Vin Diesel. 'I get frustrated at times and I want to tell him to go kick rocks and he'll laugh at me. and we'll have our. make-up session', he says. 'What we've got going on in real life is parallel to onscreen.'
Dom, Brian and Mia may be living it up with $100 million dollars in their back pockets, but living the fast life hasn't been entirely beneficial as a hole in the lives has been left by the fact that they cannot return home after the trouble they got in with the law. When DSS agent Luke Hobbs approaches Dom to ask for his help nabbing a gang of highly-trained drivers who are leaving a trail of destruction everywhere they go, Dom is less than tempted by the offer. However, when Hobbs shows him a week old photograph of Dom's former love Letty who he thought was dead, he takes on the job with his friends, determined to find out the truth even if it's the last thing he wants to hear. In return for the capture of this gang of road miscreants, the trio are offered a full pardon for their own crimes. However, with the stakes this high, survival becomes the most sought after prize for their latest challenge.
Continue: Fast & Furious 6 Trailer
Dominic, Brian and Mia maybe $100 million richer following their daring heist at the expense of crime lord Hernan Reyes in Rio de Janeiro, but their lives have been left somewhat ruptured by the fact that they cannot return home despite DSS agent Luke Hobbs letting them go after they saved his life. However, they are given a chance to be pardoned in full when Hobbs enlists them and their team to help him take down a group of deadly mercenary drivers with their own formidable street racing skills. Things aren't as simple as that though, especially when Dom discovers that his former love Letty who he believed to be dead makes a return as the brutal and self-serving assistant of the criminal kingpin behind the organisation. Will the Fast and Furious team succeed in the dangerous mission with their lives and their chance to go home hanging in the balance?
Following the events of the Fast franchise's fifth instalment 'Fast Five', our favourite street racers are back with the upcoming 'Fast & Furious 6'. With a full all-star cast return, the movie looks set to be a hit following the trailer's debut at the Super Bowl XLVII. It has been directed by Justin Lin ('Annapolis') and written by Chris Morgan ('Cellular', 'Wanted') of the last three instalments and is scheduled to be released in the UK on May 24th 2013.
Starring: Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Luke Evans, Gina Carano, Elsa Pataky, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Elsa Pataky, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Joe Taslim, Rowena Diamond, Kim Kold,

Cops Jack and Eddie (Dillon and Hernandez) are on the trail of a fiendishly efficient band of bank robbers made up of brainy, brawny Gordon (Elba) and his well-dressed goons (Brown, Walker, Christensen and Ealy). When former gang member Ghost (Harris) is released from prison, he presents them with a "once-in-a-lifetime job". But they only have five days to prepare, which is less than they're used to. Something seems fishy, but they go ahead with the heist. And sure enough, not only are the cops closing in, but Ghost may betray them.

For the record, Rob Cohen's The Fast and the Furious -- which took the name from a 1955 Roger Corman racing flick, and updated the master's exploitation bent with well-deployed studio gloss -- was a perfectly enjoyable piece of work. Throwing squadrons of neon-colored muscle cars and a still-trying Vin Diesel into the middle of an overheated potboiler drama about family honor and loyalty turned out to be a genius stroke; the thing left scorch marks. It moved with the skillful speed of well-honed pulp. By contrast, the near-laughable Fast & Furious (directed by Justin Lin, who did the honors on the last installment, Tokyo Drift) tries far too hard and achieves very little.

Former Marine and perpetual bad boy Tim Kearney (Paul Walker) has been asked to do just that. Serving a long prison sentence for all manner of illegal activities, Kearney is given conditional release if he's willing to impersonate the missing Bobby Z. DEA agent Tad Grusza (Laurence Fishburne) sets Kearney up for the exchange. Kearney looks enough like Bobby Z to pass muster, but the exchange goes to hell and Kearney is left to fend for himself. When he's captured and taken to Don Huerto's (Joaquim de Almeida) palatial Mexican estate, he meets Bobby Z's old flame Elizabeth (the striking Olivia Wilde) and her teenaged son, Kit, who just might be his (well, Bobby Z's) kid. Because Kearney isn't Bobby Z, and because he's far too brash and selfless, all sorts of trouble ensues.

The year for some reason -- the actual events happened in 1957 -- is 1993. Walker plays a guide at the National Science Foundation's base in Antarctica, where he and his eight sled dogs cover the terrain, helping with expeditions. Bruce Greenwood plays a big-shot scientist who comes to the cold continent looking for the remains of an asteroid or something else out of a Michael Bay movie. The men head out on the sled, encounter a heap of trouble, and barely return to headquarters.

Joy Ride has clearly learned from similar, high-octane road thrillers like Breakdown. It calculates every move, but seldom do we see the surprises coming. The film explores the misadventures of a college student named Lewis (Paul Walker). Lewis is a nice guy, having just bought a used car to travel all the way across the country to help a friend in need (Leelee Sobieski). Along the way, he also stops to post bail for his troublemaking brother, Fuller (Steve Zahn), and give him a ride as well.

When even a skillful writer-director with soul to spare like John Singleton ("Boyz 'N' the Hood," "Shaft") can't lend a street-racing movie an ounce of personality, it becomes abundantly clear that the trendy genre never had anything worthwhile to offer in the first place.
Stepping behind the camera for the carbon-copy sequel "2 Fast 2 Furious," Singleton frontloads the film with one scene of enjoyable B-movie flair -- a midnight drag race punctuated by car-wake camera shakes, colorful background-blur effects, and cheesy close-ups of revving tachometers, needle-buried speedometers and bad actors squinting with determined concentration as they grip the wheel.
But as soon as the movie is sideswiped by its imbecilic plot, Singleton loses his ironic sense of style and the flick crashes and burns.
