'Every person she told was completely amazed and it sparked a Shaggy singalong among the contestants in their cinema room.
'It happened years ago at the height of Shaggy's fame while he was in town filming a music video and she worked as a model. She's not at all embarrassed about it now and can see the funny side.'
Father-of-two Shaggy, real name Orville Burrell, tied the knot with his wife Rebecca Packer during a romantic ceremony in Jamaica's Oracabessa, St. Mary, in 2014.
