Adam Sandler revealed that Maroon 5’s Adam Levine performed at his daughter’s bat mitzvah!
The actor stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live with Jennifer Aniston on Thursday. Sandler explained that he randomly texted Levine to ask him to perform at his 13-year-old daughter, Sadie’s party.
“I didn’t even know why I did this, but I said, ‘I’d love to do something special for my daughter, I love her so much and blah, blah, blah,” Sandler recalled.
“…And I texted [Adam], ‘I’m sorry to do this to you, my kid’s getting bat mitzvahed Saturday night. Would you mind coming and singing a few tunes? It would be incredible.’ But I don’t know why I did it. Then you see the dot, dot, dot immediately. I’m like, he got it and he’s about to say something.”
The comedian said Levine texted back that he couldn’t say no to him and agreed to perform with his band mate, James Valentine.
“It was the coolest thing, man,” Sandler told Kimmel. “Oh, she hugged me so much, my Sadie.”
Aniston could not make it to Sadie’s big night, but Sandler said that she sent the best present. “[Jennifer] had stuff going on, so she sent a gift. One of the best gifts Sadie received out of everybody,” he expressed.
Kimmel asked, “What was it?” Sandler joked, “1.8 million dollars. …We couldn’t believe it, and Sadie blew it!”
