Nick Cannon insures his balls for 10 million. The man who has 12 kids with 6 different women has done what many say he should’ve done a long time ago. Nick visited Dr. Squatch’s “Ball Valuation Tool” which can determine how much they think a man’s genitals are worth. Now it’s by no means a scientific evaluation. It seems as if it’s for fun however Nick was given the elusive title of Most Valuable Balls. According to Nick: “Shoutout to Dr. Squatch for giving my balls the credit they deserve and hooking me up with the protection I need to keep this family tree rolling!”

Is the whole thing real? Was it all just a publicity stunt? Regardless, if you go to the Dr. Squatch site, you can check to see how much your balls are worth. Now what you want to do with that information is on you. If it’s determined your balls are worth over 1.9 million, your balls will go into the “Ball of Fame.”

Celebrities who’ve insured body parts

Celebrities insuring body parts is a pretty popular thing. Nick Cannon certainly is not the first person to do it. Artists like Bruce Springsteen have insured their vocal chords. America Ferrara has insured her teeth. Now what does it technically mean to insure a body part? Think of it as an extension of disability insurance. The exact definition of insuring a body part is: “to supplement lost income if a body part is damaged, injured, scarred, handicapped, or lost.” There have been several celebrities who’ve insured their body parts. Let’s take a look at some of the more notable ones.

  • Heidi Klum insured her legs

    Heidi Klum has reportedly insured her legs for $2.2 million. This is true although Heidi does explain, it wasn’t her who did it. She told Ellen: “I didn’t insure them, by the way,” she explained. “It was a client that insured them. It wasn’t me.”

  • Dolly Parton's breasts

    Dolly Parton was rumored to have insured her breasts for $600,000. Although after diving into this more, the rumor is NOT TRUE. Dolly denied the rumor saying  “Years ago, was it Betty Grable, or one of the great famous stars that was famous also for her legs? And at that time I said, ‘Well maybe I should get my boobs insured since I’m famous for them,’ but it was just a joke. I didn’t do that.”
