  • Keith Urban had been performing in New Jersey when Ruth Reed mistook him for a down-and-outer

A retired New Jersey teacher thought she was helping a down-and-out man pay for his food - and ended up footing the bill for Keith Urban.

Ruth Reed told NBC she picked up Urban's tab at the Medford, N.J. Wawa. He said, 'Ruth I'm Keith.' And I said, 'That's who you look like Keith Urban. When she remarked that he looked like Keith Urban, he said that he actually was the famed country music performer.

Unconvinced, Reed turned to his body guard and asked for confirmation.

"It was then I realized what an idiot I was".

"We decided when we saw military people we would treat them at Wawa or Dunkin Donuts or whatever", said Reed. She overheard Urban ask a companion for $5 and said he looked like he could use some help. Do people tell you that you look like Keith Urban?'.

She was finally convinced after noticing bodyguards. She said that for the last several years she has made it a resolution to pay for someone's purchases at Wawa at least once a week.

Star Wars movies might not be on Disney’s streaming service until 2024
Turner has the rights to show the films on its cable networks, which include TNT and TBS, and online until 2024. I can't tell you, but if I had to guess I'd say they want people to watch the movies on their cable stations.

She asked where his wife Nicole Kidman was and he introduced the woman he was with as his sister.

Ruth Reed was in line at Wawa in Medford, when she realized the man in front of her was a bit short on cash, CBS Philly reports. "I said, 'OK, I don't think she would lie to some old lady'".

But Reed was suspicious and said she got a little "snippy" with him.

The generous customer was Ruth Reed, a substitute teacher in South Jersey who happened to be in the store at the same time as Urban.

"And I just fell apart, fell apart", she said.

"And he really could have said 'Lady get away from me, ' and he didn't, he was very kind".
