On Thursday R&B singer Usher became the proud new poppa of an absolutely adorable…and veery expensive pooch he’s named Poppy! Usher outbid other celebrities including Jessica Szohr ($12 grand to be exact) for the pup at the Pencils Of Promise Gala in New York City. The $12,000 that Usher bid, along with other funds raised at the gala will benefit the charity which builds schools in Laos, Nicaragua, Guatemala and Ghana.
Usher says he’s naming the new addition to the Raymond household “Poppy”…but I’m sure his 3 and 4-year-old sons will have the final say. 🙂
