Lionel Richie heckled at wedding reception performance.

It's not easy being a wedding singer. Even if you're Lionel Richie and you get paid 250,000 pounds for singing three tunes. Lionel sang at football player John Terry and bride Toni Poole's wedding reception. The problem was that Terry's footballer mates were a bit tipsy at the point when Lionel staring singing "Hello". They stared to get rowdy and sing back to him.

A witness said: “It was really embarrassing. Toni was looking very anxious about the lads making a real fool of her. When he started singing Hello the boys started chanting back to him as if they were on the football ground terraces.

“They had downed so much champagne at the reception the guests became really lairy and started shouting over his set.“In the end he asked the crowd to be quiet and said, ‘I’ve only got two more songs, please stick with me.’

“When he came off stage he moaned to one of the organisers, ‘I imagine this is what it’s like at a working men’s club’.” ....Sounds like he should have used daughter Nicole to handle the crowd....SUN
