Katie Melua is one of Britain’s biggest pop stars and is considered one of the wealthiest young musicians in the U.K.
She shared a really freaky experience she had recently, after hearing a strange scratching sound in her ear.
The singer believed she could be losing her hearing, with certainly would be devastating to a pop star.
Katie had the bizarre sound in her ear for an entire week before she went to a doctor about the issue
The doctor discovered a tiny spider inside her ear and apparently felt right at home in Katie’s ear canal. Yikes!
Melua believes the arachnid may have been in a pair of earbuds she wore on a plane. She posted a picture of the earbuds on her Instagram account.
She wrote, “Basically I used these old in-ear monitors to block out sound on a flight, a little spider must have been in them and crawled inside my ear and stayed there for the week”.
Katie adds, “Though the thing looked terrifying up-close on the doctor’s camera, once he took him out it was pretty small, and now it’s in this little test tube, alive and seemingly fine.”
The doctor told Melua he had extracted dead bugs from the ears of patients before, but the tiny was the first one he’d taken out alive.
The pop star took the tiny spider home and released it in her garden.
Her story makes us cringe, especially if you’ve ever watched “Monsters Inside Me”.
