Hi everyone, I found this article today - poor Jay...

Singer Jay Kay's 1 million pound Ferrari was smashed up this morning following an apparent row at a hotel in the upmarket seaside resort of Aldeburgh in Suffolk.

Police sources said a 21-year-old man had been arrested and was being held in custody.

The Jamiroquai frontman, who is famed for his love of fast cars, was today unwilling to discuss the alleged attack on his car.

The driver's side window and windscreen of his black Ferrari Enzo were smashed in. Shards of glass were sprayed across the road outside the Brudenell Hotel, where he was staying.

Jamiroquai singer's £1m Ferrari attacked 'after row'
03 March 2009

SINGER Jay Kay's £1 million Ferrari was smashed up this morning following an alleged row at a hotel in an upmarket seaside resort.
The incident happened in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, in the early hours.

Police sources confirmed that a 21-year-old man had been arrested and was being held in custody.

The Jamiroquai frontman, who is famed for his love of fast cars, was today unwilliADVERTISEMENTng to discuss the alleged attack on his car.

The driver's side window and windscreen of his black Ferrari Enzo were smashed in. Shards of glass were sprayed across the road outside the Brudenell Hotel, where he was staying.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said: "A 21-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and is in custody at Lowestoft police station."

She said the alleged incident happened between midnight and 2.20am today and added that officers were called at 2.30am.

The Ferrari Enzo suffered "substantial damage" to its front and driver's side windows, she said.

A local man, who did not want to be named, was drinking in the hotel last night and said the singer was having "a few drinks".

"He said he had come to Aldeburgh to get some fish and chips," said the man.

"He was with someone else, who I think was called Brad. They were having a few drinks. I bought him (Jay Kay) a double vodka and tonic and his friend was drinking Morgan Spice.

"I arrived at the hotel at about 6pm and Jay Kay shouted at me to come over. He had seen me arrive in my car and wanted to talk about it.

"I was driving a Supra. He said it was not in the same league as his car. He said it had cost about £900,000. He said it was the first car of its type in the country."

The man said he left the hotel at about 7.15pm and had no idea what had happened afterwards.

"It looks pretty bad," he said. "There's a lot of damage to the car. I'm sure Jay Kay won't be happy."

The singer was seen returning to the hotel at about 10.30am.

When approached by a reporter, he said: "I don't want to talk about it."

Why oh why should we care about his car? I'm sure he's got enough money to replace all of the windows several times over :roll:

LoL why should we care about the accident? He didn't get hurt, and it certainly doesn't hurt his music-making capabilities (I think)

The car is important not because of the money it costs, but because it's his car! Just because of that! :lol:

Here is another article re: the violator admitting his actions.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/engl ... 923319.stm

This, IMO, is an extremely disrespectful act. It shouldn't matter the type of car orevalue it holds. This is a violation of someone's property and that is to be considered criminal, and is. I had someone smash into my beloved vintage American muscle car outside of my home a few years ago. They hit my car with such force that it ended up going through my house and into my guest bathroom. Then the thug proceeded to disconnect his vehicle from mine and drive away where he was later aprrehended by police.

My car is not even in the same league price wise or performance wise and Jay's. But that wasn't what was going through my mind at the time. The sentimental upset was far worse than the financial one. The finacial upset set in later. But thanks to insurance I was covered. I can't speak for Jay in this matter, but I'm sure it's a bit of both for him. And by the way, there is a lot of damage to that car. The glass shards that were strewn across the paint are more than likely going to require a complete paint job to the entire vehicle in order to make sure the paint matches from end to end.

I don't know if there is even such a thing as "spot painting" a Ferrari Enzo.

Hopefully court proceedings in this matter don't interfere with any of the band's performance schedules. That is a possibility, unless a lawyer can represent Jay on his behalf. This, I'm sure, is going to be a long headache for a long while. It's really unfortunate.

OMG that was hilarious :lol: :lol: I had a good laugh in the office this morning...jeeze...it was a bit surreal when Jay was being silly while the reporter was on! I don't know what to say.

Yes, a crime was commited and that "pastry" :lol: chef should be punished, but I'm sorry, there are bigger issues in the world to get upset over. Hey, my ipod broke!

What do you mean you that statement? :( ........... :lol:


Now sorry Caroli, but that's really... not fair. So, if it was someone else's very rare Ferrari Enzo that had two cracks in the windows, you wouldn't feel sad? :lol:
What I mean by that statement is that this all is really pathetic. Other people's cars get their windows smashed far worse, get warped beyond repair, people don't often have enough money to fix them but they don't land in the news because they're not celebrities. So why the hell should Jay's car get in the papers? Go fix it like everyone else does, man :roll:

Amen dudette, that's true fo sho! and, yeah I think that his car being smashed -or more getting a little scratch- isn't a relevant thing to discuss.. Shouldn't it had been worse if Jay was in the car and the ferrari fell of a cliff? I mean c'mon, it's about a material subject here people. :wink:

You get it all wrong! I was saying that it's not the cost, just the importance of our own car! My car was stolen once and I was almost passing away! And I was asking (and only for joking) what did you mean with that statement about his music-making capacities! Because I already know what you think.. :wink: :lol:

Here's the official word from JMQ.com...

Jay's Car Vandalised: In The News
Posted on 04.03.2009

You may have seen reports in the news about Jay's Enzo being vandalised. Jay was understandably upset & angry about this but we can add no further comment at this stage because details are still being investigated.

Yep this is hilarious.

IT's a bit slack that his car got wrecked by a vandal or maybe someone who is envious. It does piss me off that wankers wreck other peoples prperty that they have worked hard for, but this did make me laugh, because people get their cars wrecked every day.

Why did Jay Kay come and and do a jig behind the newsreporter? I don't get it??? Well at least he wasn't swinging punches this time :P
