Tom Cruise’’s coffee cup up for grabsFebruary 11th, 2009 - 4:45 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 11 (ANI): A Brazilian website is selling a coffee cup which was reportedly used by Tom Cruise while on holiday in Forte da Urca, Brazil.
So far the empty cup has a sale price of 2,200 dollars, reports the China Daily.
The man who initiated the auction on website Mercado Libre goes by the screen name Rafael Mak.
The authenticity of the sale has, however, been contested.
Underneath the advert, a poster has written a message claiming they have the real cup used by Tom, and the auction is fake.
The post reads: “I would like to inform all potential buyers that this ad is false, because I got the glass [sic], and not put the sale [sic], because I am an unconditional fan of Tom Cruise from Top Gun. Thus, this glass is false, only buy if they want to be deceived [sic].”
Cruise was in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, last week with wife Katie Holmes - where he slipped up by greeting reporters in Spanish rather than the national language, Portuguese. (ANI)
