Adam Sandler fires personal assistant

Adam Sandler plays a woman in upcoming Jack and Jill

Adam Sandler has decided to part ways with his assistant who supposedly cost him $1.2 million in luxury car gifts.


The comedian wasn't amused when his assistant completely misunderstood his request for a matzo party to celebrate the success of last year's movie, Grown Ups.


"I had an assistant... and I told him I was excited, Grown Ups did very well... We should celebrate with the guys, let's throw a matzo party and he said, 'Alright, I'm on it.’ Sandler explains.


"Then, $1.2 million later, he's like, 'I've got the Maseratis'. I go, 'No, no, no, I didn't say that; I said I wanted a matzo party. He said, 'OK, my bad!' I fired him... It was the second time it happened.


Allegedly, a few years back, his assistant was responsible for procuring a menorah for Chanukah. Instead, he came back with a large amount of illegal drugs.


Sandler recalls the story; "A few years ago, my family was (celebrating) Hanukkah and I said, 'We don't have a menorah.' I call him (assistant) up and said, 'You gotta go out and get a menorah quick, sundown's coming.'


"He comes back and he goes, 'I got it for ya - a kilo of cocaine,' and I go, 'No, I said a menorah.' He goes, 'OK, so is it cool if I do this cocaine now?'"


I suppose the solution to these mix-ups would be to hire a Jewish assistant in the future... or at least someone that has watched Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights a few times.
