When you have Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone for your father, your wedding will be anything other than a star-studded spectacle. Petra Ecclestone, sure knows that as he hired Rihanna for a staggering $380,000 fee to perform at his daughter’s engagement party. So who’s playing as the wedding band, you ask? Well, the lucky band is one other than the Black Eyed Peas.
The band, which is being paid $1.5 million to perform at the three-day celebration, will be flown into the 13th century Odescalchi Castle, near Rome. The event will see 300 guests as 22-year-old Petra exchanges nuptial vows with businessman James Stunt, 26. Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson was quoted in the Mail Online as being “treated like a rented mule”. A rather lucky mule, I’d say!
