New Jersey teacher covers Keith Urban’s snack tab: Keith is worth – oh, in the $75 million dollar range. But Ruth Reed still offered to pay for his Wawa order. Urban performed a concert in New Jersey on Friday night. On the way to his next tour stop in Boston, he stopped at a New Jersey convenience store for snacks – but at the counter, Keith found himself short on cash. That’s when Ruth Reed stepped in. She saw that he didn’t have enough money to pay for his things and offered to cover them. When Urban told her who he was, Reed admitted she saw a resemblance, but didn’t believe him. “He finally said that I could ask his bodyguard,” Reed wrote on Instagram. “It was then that I realized what an idiot I was. He graciously allowed me to get my picture taken with him!” CHECK OUT THE VIDEO BELOW FROM THE TODAY SHOW, IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IT!!

The West Hollywood City Council does not actually have jurisdiction over the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Their vote was symbolic. It simply asked the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to remove the Donald Trump star.
