Lionel Richie is upset he can no longer fit into his favourite leather trousers, but refuses to throw away his collection
Lionel Richie collects leather trousers.
The 59-year-old singer has a penchant for the tight animal-skin legwear and admits his greatest disappointment is that he can no longer fit into many of the pairs he owns.
He said: "I was a leather trousers collector for years. If I was 25 again, I'd be wearing them, but I'd probably get arrested right outside my hotel. Any anyway, I would probably only be able to get one leg into them now!"
Lionel's questionable fashion sense is not his only embarrassing secret.
The 'All Night Long' singer - who has a son Myles, 14, and daughter Sofia, 10, with ex-wife Diane as well as adopted daughter Nicole, 27, with his first wife Brenda - was mortified when his children made him dress as a clown for Halloween last year.
Lionel cringed: "My kids took me trick or treating. There we were - a load of 10 year olds, plus Lionel Richie dressed as a clown. I can still recall the look on people's faces! Only my daughter can humiliate me like that."
