Adam Lambert has one valuable voice!
The Sunday Mirror has reported that the "American Idol" alumnae has allegedly insured his iconic voice for $48 million in advance of an upcoming promotional tour for his sophomore album "Trespassing." The move was reportedly motivated by his management company with a source telling the paper, "Insurance for stars is a big deal in the U.S. and Adam's voice is his bacon. He had it insured last week."
If the rumor is true, the singer joins the growing ranks of celebrities with oddball insurance policies. Here are some of the stars who have made news with their insurance needs:
Bruce Springsteen: The boss was one of the first stars to reportedly purchase big insurance policies on his vocal cords. Back in 1988, the singer made headlines when he reportedly purchased a $5.7 million policy on his voice from Lloyd's of London.
Dolly Parton: The singer / actress opted to skip her vocal cords and decided instead to protect her other value assets. She has allegedly insured her famous breasts for $600,000.
Troy Polamalu: The Pittsburgh Steelers star and pitchman for Head and Shoulders decided to protect his long flowing tresses with a $1 million policy from Lloyd's of London.
Heidi Klum: She may be best known for her stint as the host of "Project Runway" or her many trips down the runway as a Victoria's Secret model, but it is apparently her legs that are her most valuable asset. During her time as the spokesmodel for the Braun line of shavers, the supermodel had her legs insured for a reported $2.2 million.
