Rapper LL Cool J thrilled a fan and a rose seller in one generous act last week (ends12Oct07) when he paid $500 (GBP250) for a bloom.
The romantic star was leaving New York's Tenjune nightclub when a female fan approached him, gushing about how much she admired him.
At that point a street rose seller approached the couple and asked, "Will you buy a rose for the pretty lady?"
LL Cool J said, "Why not?" and handed him $500, according to PlanetGossip.eonline.com.
