We Now Know Who Actually Bought Stuff From Russell Crowe's Divorce Auction

John Oliver revealed he had bought the jockstrap on his TV show Last Week Tonight

It started weeks ago on Oliver's show, when he reported the odd celebrity auction Crowe would be holding to sell a number of choice pieces of memorabilia, including the fated jockstrap.

John Oliver and the team at Last Week Tonight. The auction, which Crowe called "The Art of Divorce", was as one might imagine, a cleaning house sale in the aftermath of his divorce. He wasn't sure how to get hold of Oliver or the show to say yes. "I'm sorry it wasn't us, we didn't buy it..." before he immediately added: "We did, we absolutely did!"

The only part of the news that was more entertaining was that Oliver said he was going to send the piece of movie history, along with a few other items of Crowe's from assorted films, to the last remaining Blockbuster Video in Alaska.

Trump Campaign Continues Big Spending On Lawyers
The campaign spent approximately $3.88 million during this time frame-legal fees constituted 20% of the disbursements. Trump's campaign has also spent about $150,000 at Trump businesses, including the legal fees, per the FEC report.

"Look, there are those who would argue that something had to be done in response to Assad's suspected chemical attack, but there are legitimate debates of whether Trump had the authorization to order these strikes, and whether this risks drawing us into a longer-term conflict for which we have no clear strategy", said the HBO host.

Last Week Tonight's John Oliver has a gift for the nation's remaining Blockbuster video rental stores in Alaska: the jockstrap Russell Crowe wore in Cinderella Man. The winnings also included the set chairs of Crowe (and, for some reason, Denzel Washington) from their time on American Gangster, as well as the vest Crowe wore in the film Les Miserables, and a hood Crowe wore in Robin Hood.

Oliver suggested that the Blockbuster store could put the items on display as a "fun, movie-themed way" to draw customers and stay in business. "Just call us in the next 48 hours, and we'll send it to you".
