Tom Jones' chest-hair coverage a matter of urban legendPosted On: Feb. 17, 2008 12:00 AM CST
While "it's not unusual" for stars to insure their body parts at Lloyd's of London, 1960's pop idol Tom Jones claims reports that he insured his chest hair are "completely fabricated."
The United Kingdom's Daily Mirror reported earlier this month that the 67-year-old Welsh singer, known for his overt sexuality, insured his chest hair with Lloyd's for £3.5 million ($6.8 million).
"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," the Daily Mirror quoted a "mole."
On his official Web site, however, Mr. Jones said "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."
