One of John Legend‘s nephews owes Twitter — big time — for getting him out of trouble.
During a recent visit to Uncle John’s apartment, the boy broke one of his elder’s prized possessions: a Grammy award. Legend made light of the situation when he posted a picture of the damaged golden trophy on his @JohnLegend Twitter page.
According to Legend, some of his followers suggested that his nephew needed stern discipline. But he did not seem upset. “It was truly an accident,” he responded. “I’m just gonna have to nephew-proof my apt. a little better.”
Legend’s dilemma caught the attention of the prestigious music awards program. Within an hour, the R&B star received a comforting tweet from @TheGRAMMYs.
“Don’t worry, we can send a replacement GRAMMY Awards [sic] to you,” a representative for the organization replied.
Legend joked that the reply from @TheGRAMMYs was the bailout plan his nephew needed. Plus, he still has five other Grammys — no sweat.
