Set sources claim Russ was left suitably shame-faced when he teased one of the female crew about the fact that her car had gone up in flames. And after the crewmember retorted, “Well, I suppose it’s okay for you, Russell. You’ve probably never had to worry about finding five grand for a new car,” instead of throwing a telephone at her head, Russ came over all Robin Hood.
“He gave her five grand [Dhs28,000],” spilled a source. “He said, ‘There you go, you can buy a 10 grand car now!’”
Nice gesture, Russ!
