On Feb. 5th, the British tabloid The Daily Mirror, reported one time heartthrob (well, still for older women) Tom Jones went to Lloyd's of London with the request of insuring his chest hair and they agreed to write the policy - for $6.8 million.
A post on Jones' website disavows the claim, though, saying:
The story published in the Daily Mirror (UK) on Feb 5 is completely fabricated. No such insurance policy exists or has ever been considered. We assume this is just the Mirror having a bit of fun and hope no one takes this kind of 'reporting' seriously.Well, Jones was never shy about showing off his chest hair, and he still isn't. While he denies the rumor, after all, this type of insurance .... well, "It's not unusual ..."
