James Blunt tells British GQ that his sister couldn’t get to Ireland so his solution was to sell her on eBay. He says:
“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 armor! 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. That was the stupidest thing I’ve ever sold on eBay – my sister.”
And just to remind you why we hate James Blunt, here are pictures of Petra Nemcova, whom he somehow managed to date. And if that’s not enough to make you hate him, he also called your mom a whore and tried to sleep with your sister. True story.
