Harry Styles MUM Uses His Name On eBay To Sell GIFTED Car He Gave Her!

I don’t get, Harry styles gave his mom, Anna Cox, this beautiful Mini Cooper last year for Valentine’s day, and now she’s selling it on eBay and not only is she selling it on eBay, she’s also using Harry styles, her son’s name, as an incentive to buyers to try and up the price!

At last check, the Mini was going for cool £6,000 pounds, which is how much American these days? About $6 bucks?

The eBay auction reads:

‘Harry Styles of One Direction bought this stunning car for his mum Anne as a Mother’s Day present in 2011. The lucky winner can have the car handed over by Anne who will be delighted to meet the new owner. The car is located at my garage and not at Anne’s house, so please do not come here expecting to see Anne. That privilege will be reserved for the lucky winning bidder. Don’t miss out on this unique car and photo opportunity.’

I’ve heard of regifting but this is ridiculous! But all-in-all I guess it’s okay for Harry’s mom to sell the car, he gave her, it’s hers and she can do what she wants with it. I just think with all the money he’s probably making she should’ve at least kept it a while longer and let it go up in value…
