MATCHBOX TWENTY star ROB THOMAS has extremely limited knowledge of sports - but he's a self-declared expert when it comes to women's handbags.

The rocker, married to MARISOL MALDONADO for almost six years, admits that growing up in a female-dominated household has done very little to hone his knowledge of sports.

He says, "I grew up with my mom and my sister and my grandmother and it was all just me and women. So I've grown into a guy who knows nothing about sports.

"I could walk up to one of the biggest sports stars in the world and just be like, 'Hey guy, how you doing?' But I can spot a KATE SPADE bag from across the room!"
