You would expect this kind of cash flashing from Tom Cruise, but not from Mariska Hargitay. The Law & Order Special Victims Unit star dropped $500,000 big ones on a very special present for her son August.
What did the lucky three year old get?
Bruce Springsteen’s 20-year-old Takamine guitar!
Mariska purchased it at a charity auction last fall. “I was determined!” she tells the New York Daily News. “That was the moment I realized how much I loved my son.”
Not only did guitar belong to Bruce, The Boss also autographed the six string especially for August.
The tiny tyke won’t be playing it any time soon though, if ever. “I framed it on a wall. I’m like, don’t touch it, DON’T TOUCH IT!” Mariska says. “Bruce literally took it off his body and handed it to me, so after that it went from his hands to the display case.”
Let’s hope that as her son gets older he likes rock music. It would be kind of hard not to with that sort of inspiration hanging around.
