Our gossipiest reports that pop shrieker Christina Aguilera was paid $2 million by Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko to sing for an hour at his fancy-shmancy wedding in Antibes last weekend.
Aguilera and her fiancé Jordan Bratman were flown to the event by private jet and stayed in a £2000-a-night hotel suite. A source said: "Christina did a brilliant job. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when she sang Beautiful."
That’s probably because she shattered all the crystal.
(When Russians lived under Communism they couldn’t spend their money so stupidly.)
And so you don’t think Andrey scrimped on the entertainment, following Aguilera was Whitney Houston.
Two hours before the concert was due to start, Whitney’s people called the partyorganisers. There was a problem. Whitney wouldn’t be able to sing… because all her teeth had just fallen out.
Cue frantic dash to find a discreet private dentist to make up a serviceable set of false teeth so the gig could go ahead.
Then Enrique Iglesias sang with dad Julio.
In case you were wondering, bride Alexandra Kokotovic is a model and ex miss Serbia.
