Lionel Richie today threatened to initiate a Commodores reunion unless his demands were met in full. No one actually asked what his demands were, but merely stood back and waited for the M.P.’s to take him away. “We take these threats seriously,” stated one of the arresting soldiers, who wished to remain anonymous. “If we let him make threats like this, eventually you’ll have the Bee Gee’s threatening to get back together. Before you know it, Barry Manilow will be touring again, and that’ll be the end of it.”
Richie is currently in military custody in St. John’s, Antigua awaiting transfer to Guantanamo Bay.
