CeeLo Green Gets Sued For $14.2 Million By Angry Promoter

Written by Kiel Egging on February 11, 2013

CeeLo Green is being sued by an angry promoter for $14.2 million after not turning up to perform at two concerts around Christmas 2011.

According to TMZ, Cierra Management Group have filed a suit against the singer, claiming that they approached him in December 2011 to do a tour called 12 Days of Christmas.

CeeLo was charging $100k per night, which Cierra couldn’t afford. Eventually, they brokered a deal for 2 shows at a cost of $243,000, which Cierra claims they paid him for.

But according to the suit, the concerts never took place, and Cierra believes CeeLo’s people never intended for them to happen. They claim his management saw the deal as “a scheme designed to finagle funding capital for concerts they knew would not manifest.”

Although Cierra aren’t accusing Green of being part of the conspiracy, they are still suing him for allegedly refusing to turn up and perform the gigs.

Green’s reps told TMZ that they had heard nothing about the deal, and denied the singer’s involvement in the deal entirely.

“When this story came out yesterday, it was the first time that CeeLo Green and his current management team had even heard about this concert deal. Most importantly, CeeLo was never compensated or involved.

“It is unfortunate and ridiculous that CeeLo Green’s name is associated with such an incident, as this is not how he handles business.”
