Enrique and Kournikova's million-dollar Hannuka performance in Israel
New York, Dec 11 (ANI): Spanish crooner Enrique Iglesias and his ladylove Anna Kournikova, are leading a contingent of jet-setters to Israel to help billionaire Arcadi Gaydamak celebrate Hanukkah, for a million dollars.
The singer and his Russian beauty, who was once a top-10 tennis player, need 30 luxury hotel rooms for their entourage, and they've already requested that mineral water and freshly squeezed orange juice be placed in their own room at 7 a.m., Israel's Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reports.
Ukrainian-born Gaydamak made his fortune in import/export in France, but fled in 2000 when an arrest warrant was issued charging him with tax evasion and selling arms to Angola.
To avoid extradition, he has been cultivating goodwill by giving large sums to Israeli charities.
On Dec. 21, on the eve of the lighting of the seventh Hanukkah candle, 1,000 guests - including Benjamin Netanyahu - are expected at the Hilton Hotel in Tel Aviv to hear Iglesias sing. (ANI)
