Stand-up comedian Russel Brand has admitted to stealing Larry King’s wife’s underwear at a dinner party on Thursday.
The legendary King had invited Brand along with basketball player Shaquille O’Neal, Tyra Banks and chat show host Conan O’Brien into his home for the CNN special Dinner With The Kings to be aired on Sunday.
Things took a hilarious turn when funnyman Brand sneaked into the Kings’ bedroom and stole his wife’s panty.
“It (set up) didn’t seem normal... People asking questions about whether or not you loved your mum...” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Ryan Seacrest, US radio personality.
“So, to ground myself, I thought the only way of making sense of this situation is to sneak away... go upstairs, go into his (King’s) bedroom and steal his wife’s underwear, conceal it about your person and then later on in the conversation... ‘Russell, what keeps you up at night?’ ‘I tell you what keeps me up at night - these...’ and I held up his wife’s panties,” he added.
