Enrique and Kournikova's million-dollar Hannuka performance in Israel

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)

Kournikova's $1m party fee

Anna Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias will help a Jewish billionaire celebrate Hanukkah — but their price is raising eyebrows.
The one-time tennis player and Enrique Iglesias are charging Arcadia Gaydamak $1 million to show-up at his party.
The Russian beauty has also demanded 30 luxury hotel rooms for their entourage, the New York Post reports.
The couple will be among 1000 guests celebrating the Jewish festival at the Hilton Hotel in Tel Aviv on December 21, according to reports.

Re: Enrique and Kournikova's million-dollar Hannuka performance in Israel

strange, strange, how could they demand $$$ if the hoist is kind enough to invite you for parties

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Ennis and Jack found something most people don't ever find in this life...true love, the deepest, purest, most beautiful thing in the universes. Ennis and Jack have TRUE LOVE. They are SOULMATES. They have a love so deep, so pure, so strong, that it transcends everything, it's eternal.

Another case of the rich getting away with shit. I don't see anything wrong with their appearance money but they could make that money without making a criminal happy.

Enrique is being paid to perform at the party, not just to show up. Obviously, he doesn't care what sort of criminal is paying him as long as he gets paid. Looks like Enrique & Anna will do anything for money, even when they've already got millions.

He's going to sing some songs. That's how he makes his living. Anna is going to enjoy the party.

It's news related to a former player, like Chrissie's divorce, or dancing with stars. Or becoming a nun.

Ladylove?

ladylove!?!?

I love this sentence though:

Like, as if charging a million dollars for showing their faces and needing 30 rooms weren't enough, the greedy bastards have the nerve to request orange juice and mineral water!! And they want in the same room as them!

It's a scandal!
