Celebs Who Got Mighty Chummy With A Fan SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/nE2uhv-ZCSw : When you’re a star, everybody wants to be your friend. But the average Jane and Joe rarely get to rub elbows with their idols in real life. Whether for a day, a week, or even years, these celebs actually became friends with one of their biggest fans.
Sometimes a whole lot of moxie and a little good timing can help you go from fan to friend. Just ask Nicole Muxo, who made a Twitter video asking her favorite baller to her senior prom in 2013.
Muxo sent Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade a direct message with her school’s Miami address the night before the big dance, even though, according to the Miami Herald, he’d already told her he couldn’t make it. As luck would have it, Wade’s calendar opened up when the Heat eliminated the Chicago Bulls from the NBA playoffs a night early. According to the paper,
“Wade called Muxo moments before walking into the prom ‘to tell her to have a good night’ but did not tell her that he was outside.”
If you’re thinking this fairy tale sounds way too easy, think again. Muxo reportedly met Wade the year prior at a book signing, where she asked him to come to her homecoming dance on a bookmark. Then she went to another signing wearing a customized t-shirt as an invite. Looks like the third time’s a charm for this lucky lady.
