British porn star Keiran Lee took out an insurance policy worth £640,000 last month – for his penis. It seems a lot of celebs feel the need to protect their moneymaking assets.
BODY PART INSUARANCE
❚ Good Girl Gone Bad Rihanna’s pins are one of her best features – she shows them off enough. The singer agrees, getting herself an insurance policy worth £638,000 to cover them.
❚ Cricket player Merv Hughes’ huge moustache was one of the most celebrated in sport, so
it made sense to get it covered. For £200,000.
❚ If his chest hair falls out, Welsh Sex Bomb singer Tom Jones won’t have to worry. Luckily, he’s insured the fuzz on his torso for £4.5m.
❚ One woman whose career has pretty much been built on the size of her arse, J-Lo has had her buttocks insured for a staggering £192m. Maybe Pippa Middleton should consider taking out a policy too...

HOW YOU SPEND IT!

How do you budget?
I don’t really budget too strictly, but I try to limit nights out on the beers to two a week and only eat out once a week. I try and save
a bit each month, too.
Any money-saving tips for living in London?
Papa John’s vouchers are great for two-for-one deals on pizza, a Zone 1-2 Travelcard will save cash in the long-run and sites such as Travelzoo are great for cheap travel and nights out.
Last big blow-out?
Flights to Miami for Ultra Music Festival in March that set me back almost £450. It’s a three-day festival on the beach with dance acts from all around the world and 100,000+ people. It’s going to be immense!
What non-essential items do you spend money on?
Coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. That, and burritos.
