James Blunt sold his sister on eBay

James BluntBritish singer James Blunt sold his sister on eBay!

No joke.. the eBay addicted rising music star pimped out his sister on the online auction site to help her get to a funeral in Ireland.

Blunt recalls that..

I had a bit of an eBay addiction and I sold everything in my apartment in London and then I came in one day and my sister was crying because she couldn’t get to a funeral in southern Ireland.

None of the planes were working, none of the trains, none of the ferries, so I saw another golden opportunity to flog something and so I put my sister up on eBay, saying “Damsel in distress, needs to get to Southern Ireland”. What do you get out of it as a bidder? “You just get to be a knight in shining armour.”

Everyone started bidding and a guy won and he had a helicopter and he could fly her to the funeral in southern Ireland and they’re now dating and they’ve been going out for 18 months and she’s living with him

Well this is interesting, an eBay romance? A new dimension of cyber dating perhaps.. and a new business for eBay lol.

James Blunt also said that he is planning to put his second sister on sale as well, oh gosh.
