Blige Buys Degeneres A Diamond Watch

Subscribe To:

R+B superstar Mary J Blige handed pal ELLEN DeGENERES a diamond encrusted watch yesterday morning (15MAR04) - to thank her for attending one of her recent concerts.

Blige made a surprise appearance on the ELLEN show as DeGeneres danced and sang to her hit LOVE @ 1ST SIGHT, and proceeded to hand her the bejewelled timepiece - boasting yellow, black, pink and blue diamonds - made by New York's JACOB THE JEWELLER, who has designed many pieces for members of the hip-hop community.

Blige told DeGeneres, "I can't stay that long. I didn't come to sell anything. I just came to thank you for coming to my show at the HOUSE OF BLUES.

"I watch you faithfully every morning. You make me happy every morning when I watch you and I have something for you.

"I saw you on the show with RUBEN (STUDDARD) and I saw you wave to Jacob. So I said, 'Jacob, Ellen is hollering at you! She needs a watch! So basically this is from me and Jacob to you."

A grateful DeGeneres joked, "When I sell this, how much can I get for it? Does it comes with an armed security guard?

"This is unbelievable. I don't even know what to say. I can't even believe this is happening."

Before leaving, Blige told DeGeneres, "I thank you for coming to my show that night. I don't think you realise how much it meant to me when I found out you were really there."
