John Legend now has four-and-a-half Grammys, thanks to an unruly nephew.
Wednesday morning, the R&B star tweeted a photo that showed the gramophone of one of his five Grammy Awards snapped in half following a rough play date with his young relatives.
The Twitpic, snapped from his New York apartment, showed his 2005 Best R&B Album Grammy for “Get Lifted” all busted up with the following caption: “Casualty of the nephews staying with me. I hope they send replacement grammys!”
Some of his Twitter followers wrote back suggesting ways to punish his nephew, but Legend laughs off the incident and is now thinking of ways to protect his other awards.
He adds, “Funny how many of y’all told me to beat his a**. Haha. It was truly an accident. I’m just gonna have to nephew-proof my apt (apartment) a little better.”
