James Blunt pimped out his sister on Internet auction site eBay to help her get to a funeral in Ireland. And the plan worked so well for Blunt and his sister, who is now dating the high-flying highest bidder, he's planning to auction off his younger sibling when he returns to Britain from a promotional tour of the US. The YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL singer was already addicted to buying and selling items on eBay when his sibling came to him with her problem. He recalls, "I had a bit of an eBay addiction and I sold everything in my apartment in London and then I came in one day and my sister was crying because she couldn't get to a funeral in southern Ireland. "None of the planes were working, none of the trains, none of the ferries, so I saw another golden opportunity to flog something and so I put my sister up on eBay, saying, 'Damsel in distress, needs to get to Southern Ireland. What do you get out of it as a bidder? You just get to be a knight in shining armour.' "Everyone started bidding and a guy won and he had a helicopter and he could fly her to the funeral in southern Ireland and they're now dating and they've been going out for 18 months and she's living with him. "I have a second sister, who's gonna go on sale soon."
