So who’s the first person to snag one of those necklace pendants with cloned sample copies of Justin Bieber’s hair? Real Housewives of Vancouver star and singer Mary Zilba.
A Canadian company just began selling the necklaces for $120 on their Web site, celebritygene.com, and Mary — a native of Ohio who moved to L.A. before marrying a Canadian and heading to Vancouver — was snapped by the Web site Nick Northstar wearing the necklace at a screening party for her show.
Celebrity Gene extracted the DNAfrom a piece of Justin’s hair, according to RadarOnline, which broke news of the necklace. It seems unclear, though, how the company obtained Justin’s DNA.
“We wanted to make this item so that all tweens can afford one and always carry around Justin,” head DNA scientistat Celebrity Gene, Ryan Lehto, told the Web site. “We obtained his hair DNA due to popular demand and because we like that he is Canadian and how he went from YouTube to an international superstar!”
