New York, Dec 25 (IANS) Singer Lionel Richie has gifted himself seven Mercedes cars for Christmas.

And the shocked salesman didn't recognise the famous singer.

"I decided to buy myself a Mercedes - or two! In blue jeans and T-shirt, I walked into a Montgomery, Alabama, dealership and said, 'I'll buy seven Mercedes.' Staring, the guy asked, 'Son, you got some proof?' I had him call LA's Bank of America president. He hung up and segued from 'Son' to, 'Mr. Richie, right this way, please,'" nypost.com quoted Richie as saying.
