Tom Jones, for example, once took out a $7,000,000 policy to cover his chest hair.
Evidently, chest hair replacement implants are quite costly.
Mariah Carey's legs were recently insured for $1,000,000,000. That's right, a billion!
The policy was written shortly after she was awarded Gillett's "Legs of a Goddess," award. Gillett, even celebrated with a gigantic statue of her legs to commemorate the moment.
One of the most unusual policies written by Lloyd's has to be David Lee Roth's insurance policy for his sperm at $1,000,000.
This was back in the 80s, when he was a hot act. You could say he was ahead of his time. He wasn't afraid of becoming impotent. Actually, if was just the opposite. The policy would pay him if some of the many groupies he slept with in those days suddenly slapped his with a paternity suit.
