James Blunt's sister sale
( femalefirst.co.uk ) - James Blunt sold his sister on eBay. The 'You're Beautiful' singer was so addicted to the internet auction site he sold his sibling - and she is now engaged to the winning bidder.
James said in an interview with GQ magazine: "The stupidest thing I've ever sold is my sister, on eBay.
"I was waiting for my first album to come out and ended up selling pretty much everything I owned on eBay. I had a mild addiction."Anyway, I came back to the flat where my sister was staying and she was crying because she couldn't get to a funeral in Ireland. "The planes were on strike, the ferry was out of season and there were no trains. I ended up whacking it on eBay, 'Damsel in distress seeks knight in shining armour! Desperate to get to a funeral in Southern Ireland, please help!'
"The bids flooded in and the guy who won had a helicopter. He flew her to the funeral. "That was three years ago, this summer they're getting married!"
