After reaching a decent resolution with Bez regarding an unpaid IOU for petrol earlier this year, we’ve been given another celebrity debt collection case.
While watching Ash at Somerset House a few years back, a Popbitch reader was stood in front of Nick Frost and Edgar Wright. Every time our client went to get a fag out, Nick Frost would tap him on the shoulder and ask for one too, promising that he would buy some and repay the favour. Feeling that Frost was a decent sort who would honour his pledge, he freely handed one over every time.
In total, our client reckons Frost cadged about 10 Marlboro Lights throughout the evening, before sneaking backstage before the encore, never making any effort to reimburse him for the fags smoked.
Our reader doesn’t smoke anymore but figures that, at today’s rate, half a pack of Malboros is worth about £6. However, if Nick is willing to cough up £5, our client is prepared to call it quits and move on.
