A woman who thought she was helping a down-and-out man pay for his food at a bowser in the USA ended up footing the bill for country music star Keith Urban.

Ruth Reed and her husband have made it a habit to help people pay their tabs at the Wawa store.

He thanked the her during their encounter at a store in in New Jersey and said his name was Keith. "Do people ever tell you that you look like Keith Urban?' And he said, 'I am Keith Urban, ' and I said, 'No you're not really?" said Reed of their conversation. When he said he was Keith Urban, she reportedly didn't believe him until his security guard confirmed she actually was talking to the musician.

Reed says she hopes her story will help people realize the importance of doing acts of kindness. She overheard Urban ask a companion for $5 and said he looked like he could use some help. As Olivia Prouse, a former student of Reed's, wrote on Twitter, Reed thought Urban was "down on his luck and couldn't pay for his Wawa snacks so she bought them for him". I said that he did look like Keith Urban.
