Tom Jones recently insured his famous chest hair for just under $7 million.
Yes, that was 7 million.
Though the 67-year-old crooner's manager told a British tabloid that Jones has been "working far too hard in the recording studio" for such frivolity, media reports have confirmed the policy was taken out with the world-renowned Lloyd's of London.
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.
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.
