We’ve probably all left something behind in a hotel or hostel at some stage; usually it’s a phone charger, or a much-loved bra, or still half-full bottle of fake-tan.
The worst is weddings – somehow you never manage to make it home with everything you arrived with.
Do you ring and enquire about getting it back? Or simply take the loss on the chin – vowing to be more cautious next time?
Well, it seems if you’re Nicki Minaj you fall into the latter category… even if the item in question is worth a cool €10,000.
Yes, the rapper and singer was in New York City over the weekend for her brother’s wedding, which was held at the Coral House in Long Island.
The 32-year-old evidently brought along a few outfit options too; an unworn, full-length Emilio Pucci gown was left in the wardrobe in the bridal suite, where the star had been getting ready.
The tags, which are still attached, confirm that the garment is worth the eye-watering five-figure sum. As well as boasting beautifully crafted beading and sequin, the silk number has intrinsic detailing on the hem, waist, and sleeves.
Now Butch Yamali, the owner of the Coral House, is trying to get the dress back to her – but, given its value, he's cautious of handing it over too readily.
Indeed, he says someone has already called asking for the dress, but Mr Yamali was suspicious that the individual in question wasn't legitimately from Nicki's camp… so he declined to part with it.
Meaning as yet, the €10K dress remains unclaimed. The exact same dress was previously seen on a pregnant Ciara at the Grammys last year – so perhaps Nicki feels getting it back just isn't worth the hassle.
Could we maybe have it instead?
