Celebrity Yacht Race - MOB Mystery: where is James Blunt?
An update on the breaking story regarding a possible man over-board incident in the first Celebrity Monaco to Miami Yacht race. Apparently race organisers are very concerned about the current where abouts of James Blunt.
There were of course many an eyebrow raised when James Blunt signed up to sail along side rock star legend Marilyn Manson on the boat named after his ex-wife, Dita Von Teese (above).
The inside scoop from our Buff Staysail was that Blunt misheard the invite as would you like to sail "with" Dita Von Teese, rather than "on" and only found out when it was too late to back out.
According to race organisers a side comment from Manson suggested that Blunt wasn't currently on the boat.
More as we get it.
