James Blunt has revealed he sold his sister on eBay.
The singer came up with the idea so she could attend a funeral in Ireland.
The plan worked well for his sister as she is now dating the winner of the auction.
According to IOL.com James said: "I had a bit of an eBay addiction and I sold everything in my apartment in London and then I came in one day and my sister was crying because she couldn't get to a funeral in southern Ireland.
"None of the planes were working, none of the trains, none of the ferries, so I saw another golden opportunity to flog something and so I put my sister up on eBay, saying, 'Damsel in distress, needs to get to Southern Ireland. What do you get out of it as a bidder? You just get to be a knight in shining armour.'
