Tom Jones may have himself in quite the hairy situation. The still hunky 67-year-old singer has reportedly insured his chest hair for around $7 million. Tom approached Lloyd's of London and asked them if they would insure his chest hair and they agreed, reports the New York Daily News.
It's not unusual. The paper notes that the prestigious insurance house has a history of catering to strange celebrity requests. Lloyd's of London has insured the legs of Fred Astaire, Angie Dickinson, and supermodel Heidi Klum, the hands of pianist Liberace and the fingers of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards.
The most famous rear end in the world - the one belonging to Jennifer Lopez - is also said to be insured by the London-based insurance house.
A source said, “Even at the grand old age of 67, the ladies love his hip-thrusting moves and catching a sneaky peak of his famously rugged chest hair."
Cue the rep™: According to the report Tom's spokesperson would not confirm. But, on its Web site, Lloyd's of London boasted that the storied firm issued coverage of a celebrity's chest hair in 2006. "Admittedly, this is one of the most obscure requests I've had – but I still came up with a wording that addressed the need," underwriter John Thomas said at the time.
